If you would like to fix chipped or cracked teeth, reduce unsightly gaps or spaces between your teeth or hide discoloration on your teeth’s surface, then composite bonding may be for you. Composite bonding is often used to improve the appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile. As the name indicates, composite material (tooth colored "filling" material) is bonded to an existing tooth. Unlike porcelain veneers or crowns, composite bonding often requires the removal of little, if any, of the original tooth structure.
Composite bonding has many advantages, including:
- It is a quick process that is performed in one dental visit.
- Bonding is relatively inexpensive compared to porcelain veneers or crowns.
The main limitation with composite bonding is that they are not as durable as porcelain veneers and may need to be re-touched or replaced more often in the future.
Please contact our office to see if composite bonding is the right restoration for you.
