Bonding for Tooth Repair
When you have a chip or minor break in a tooth, the idea of restoration can often be intimidating. However, cosmetic dental bonding is an excellent option for repairing a decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored tooth. This method is non-invasive and typically pain-free. The procedure is called bonding because the material bonds to your tooth. It is performed in your dentist’s office in a single visit that lasts between 30 minutes to one hour.

Composite resin is used to cover the damaged area, and the color matches your own tooth color as much as possible. Your dentist shapes and polishes the resin to fill the gap or chip in your tooth structure. Then, a special light instrument is used to harden the composite.
Bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures. It can also be used to make teeth look longer or close gaps between teeth. It can even be used to protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has become exposed.
Bonding for Tooth Whitening
Cosmetic dental bonding is often used to brighten teeth. This is an excellent option for discolored teeth. With proper care, dental bonding can last several years. This cosmetic treatment is ideal when you have only a few teeth requiring treatment.
Bonding isn’t for everyone. Because composite resin isn’t as strong as your natural tooth enamel if you have an over or underbite that could scrape at the resin it might be best to use a different treatment option. You also need to avoid possibly damaging foods such as sticky or hard candies, as well as avoiding drinking or eating foods that can stain your teeth for at least 48 hours after treatment. Keep up your regular oral hygiene routine as well as semi-annual professional dental cleanings and exams.
