More About Bonds

Bonds are a type of cosmetic dentistry procedure that provides whiter, straighter, and contoured teeth.

Cosmetic bonding is the process of attaching or bonding materials on the surface of your tooth to change the color and shape of teeth. The material is fused on the natural tooth enamel to reinforce teeth using strong bonding materials, porcelain, and resin. Dental bonds have several purposes: reinforcing teeth and repairing chipped teeth, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

  • Repairs discolored, stained, or damaged teeth
  • Fixes chips and cracks to restore your smile

  • It's a reversible procedure, unlike veneers because enamel isn't removed

  2. She uses local anesthesia to reduce discomfort during the procedure.
  3. Your dentist selects composite resin that matches the color of your tooth.

  5. Then putty-like resin material that matches your teeth is applied and molded to the desired shape on the tooth.
