Bonding

TEETH BONDING PROCEDURES IN NORTH CAROLINA

Bonding is a restorative alternative to veneers, used for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned. The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding agent. A visible light is used to set the bonding agent. Then a composite resin is applied and sculpted to the desired shape. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural appearance. Contact your local dentist’s office to discuss this procedure and other dentistry options.

Considerations

The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the composite resin is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth.
