Dental bonding is a special resin composite that adheres to your teeth and becomes as hard as your own enamel. Bonding can solve many cosmetic problems at an affordable price. Stained, gapped, chipped or mis-aligned teeth can be bonded to give you a reshaped smile,usually in one office visit. The color of the bonding material must match your other teeth so that it appears natural. This may require getting your other teeth to a pleasing color first, through bleaching or other services. Although bonding is not a permanent solution, depending on your oral habits it can last up to 10 years or more before requiring a new treatment.
