Dental bonding is a restoration that uses a material that is specially designed to look just like your natural teeth. Bonding can solve many cosmetic problems such as stained, gapped, chipped or mal-aligned teeth at an affordable price. Composite resin is also often used to fill areas that are affected by decay, making a filling virtually invisible. The color of the bonding material can be adjusted to match a patient’s natural color so it is not noticeable to the naked eye. Bonding is not a permanent solution; depending on a patient’s oral habits it can last up to ten years or more, before requiring a new treatment.
