If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. The dentist can apply resin, shaded to blend with tooth’s natural color, to rebuild the tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, he artistically sculpts and polishes the restoration. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile! Cosmetic bonding is a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, but may not last as long. Bonding won’t discolor as your natural tooth enamel does, so touch-up whitening may be required to keep your teeth the same shade as bonded areas.
