Dental Bonding and Composite Veneering
The best use for bonding is to repair slightly chipped, discolored or misaligned front teeth that detract from a smile or affect normal function.
Bonding involves placing tooth colored composite material onto the tooth. Composite veneering is using the same bonding agent to correct imperfections on the tooth’s facing surface.
The advantages of bonding is that it is relatively inexpensive and an ultra conservative way to restore a tooth. Bonding will discolor eventually and is easier to break.
Candidates include: front teeth that are rotated, undersized, severely chipped, heavily discolored, decayed, or have fillings that are failing.
It is not uncommon for a tooth or group of teeth to have a combination of these problems. Depending on the severity of the problem, composite bonding and veneering may be an option. Other options include porcelain dental veneers and dental crowns.
