Dental bonding is a special resin composite that adheres to your teeth and becomes as hard as your own enamel. Bonding can solve many cosmetic dentistry problems at an affordable price. Stained, gapped, chipped or misaligned teeth can be bonded to give you a reshaped smile, usually in one office visit. The color of the bonding material must match your other teeth so that it appears natural. This may require getting your other teeth to a pleasing color first, through teeth whitening or other services. Compared to porcelain veneers, bonding is not a long-lasting solution. Depending on your oral habits, it can last up to 10 years or more, before requiring a new treatment. It is a good alternative for patients who want dental reconstruction but are not candidates for tooth replacement including dental implants or teeth in a day.
