Bonding is done by placing tooth-like material onto the tooth to both build and alter its shape. It requires great expertise and an artistic eye to achieve optimal aesthetics with bonding. It usually takes one visit to complete treatment. Cosmetic bonding can resolve cavities, chips, cracks, fractures, gaps and spaces between teeth, and tooth discoloration. However, if you have teeth that are extensively damaged or your dentist considers other dental issues may affect the success and longevity of cosmetic bonding treatment, other options may be presented to you, such as crowns or veneers.
