Composite Dental Bonding
Dental Bonding is a non invasive technique which is often used to close gaps between teeth, repair broken or chipped teeth or changing the color and shape of teeth. Bonding is a low cost alternative to veneers, but not as strong and has some limitations.
A tooth-colored dental composite material is applied to the surface of your teeth and is sculpted to give a natural and aesthetically pleasing result. This technique requires a level of artistic skill that we possess. We are highly experienced in the latest bonding techniques.

Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. During dental bonding, a white filling is placed onto your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling "bonds" with your teeth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.
Tooth bonding can also be used for teeth fillings instead of amalgam fillings. Many patients prefer bonded fillings because the white color is much less noticeable than the silver amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.
Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and usually can be completed in one visit to our office. However, bonding can stain and is easier to break than other cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers. If it does break or chip, tell your doctor. The bonding can generally be easily patched or repaired in one visit.
