Bonding is a technique similar to veneers. Instead of using a porcelain facing, a tooth-colored filling material (composite resin) is chemically and mechanically bonded to the tooth giving the appearance of straight teeth.

When teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, bonding can protect them from damage and restore their original look. Bonding your teeth with resin is a one-appointment procedure:
First, teeth are beveled and a conditioning gel is applied. Then a tooth-colored material called resin is placed on the teeth, and is sculpted to the desired shape. A high-intensity light hardens the resin, bonding it to the teeth. Once in place, bonded restorations are very strong. Bonding can greatly improve the appearance of your teeth, resulting in a more beautiful, natural looking smile!
