Dental bonding can be used to correct teeth that are chipped or misaligned. It can also help other imperfections with teeth. Composite resin is mixed to match your tooth color so you have a natural look during this cosmetic procedure. The resin is then applied to the tooth. This bonding lasts five to ten years.
What is the difference between dental bonding and porcelain veneers?
Dental bonding and porcelain veneers are used to repair chipped or misaligned teeth. However, each procedure is done differently. Porcelain veneers require you to visit the dentist multiple times; once, to take a mold of the tooth/teeth, and again to place the veneers. Although veneers require more of your time, they usually have a longer life. Dental bonding only requires one appointment, in which the resin is mixed and applied.
Bonding: what are the benefits?
- Painless and requires no healing time
- Rapid and easy procedure
- Less durable than porcelain veneers or crowns, but still a good choice for long-lasting results
