If your teeth are chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect, we may suggest one appointment cosmetic tooth bonding. During this procedure, we will roughen the surface of the desired teeth, apply a liquid adhesive and place a putty-like plastic resin shaded to blend with your tooth color. After hardening the resin with a curing light, we will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration to a pleasing shape.
In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful smile! Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers. Since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before need of repair or replacement.
