Bonding is a the best way to repair teeth that are slightly chipped, discolored or crooked, while preserving as much of your natural teeth as possible. During the procedure, a filling will be placed on the tooth to improve its appearance with a customized shade that matches the appearance of your natural teeth.
Additionally, bonding can be used in place of amalgam fillings since it is much less noticeable than the silver- colored amalgam filling. A major benefit to bonding is that it matches the shade of your natural teeth, so it can be used in the front and back teeth.
While bonding is not as sturdy as porcelain veneers, it can often be completed in just one office visit and repaired just as easily if it were to chip.
