Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that straightens and reshapes chipped, stained, misshapen, or slightly misaligned teeth. In dental bonding, a tooth-colored putty is used to fill in the damaged area of the tooth. The putty hardens and becomes part of the tooth.
Once bonded with dental fillers, the tooth becomes virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth. It looks and feels completely natural, allowing you to eat and drink anything you want without thinking twice about it.
Dental bonding is a popular way for people who need minor cosmetic dental procedures performed to improve their smile. The procedure takes just one visit and there is no discomfort associated with the treatment. The procedure is also inexpensive compared to veneers or crowns.
Veneers are custom-made from porcelain or plastic material that is carefully sculpted to achieve a natural appearance. Their color can be matched precisely with the surrounding teeth as well as with adjacent veneers. The surface of the veneer is then polished to ensure that it does not feel rough when your lips touch the teeth and gums.
