Bonding is among the easiest of cosmetic dental procedures.  The tooth-colored resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth.  Bonding can be used in a variety of applications.

To improve the appearance of a discolored tooth

To repair a chipped or cracked tooth

To close spaces between teeth

To change the shape of a tooth

To make teeth look longer

As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam (mercury fillings)

To protect a portion of the tooth's root that gets exposed when gums recede


No preparation is needed for bonding and anesthesia often is not necessary.
