If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. We can apply putty-like composite resin, shaded to blend with your tooth’s color, to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, we will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile.
With contouring, we can gently sculpt a tooth’s outer layer to help smooth its shape so that it matches the teeth next to it.
Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, but it lasts only five to 10 years with proper care. Bonding will not discolor as your natural tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.
