Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an alternative to veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned.

What Is Dental Bonding?

  • Dental bonding vs. veneers—which one should I get?

    Dental bonding and veneers are two standard dental procedures used to address issues such as broken teeth, and cavities, or improving the appearance of healthy teeth. While veneers are applied to the entire tooth’s front surface, bonding is only applied to a small portion.

    Both bonding and veneers can help improve your smile and adjust the spacing of your teeth. However, bonding is typically used for emergencies and is the quickest way to repair a cracked or fractured tooth, requiring only one appointment.

    Bonding is an excellent solution for small to moderate defects or cavities on your front teeth. Keep in mind, however, that veneers offer a longer-term cosmetic result and are a more comprehensive solution, though they require more time and a larger upfront investment.

  • How long does dental bonding last?

    Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves applying a composite material to a tooth to improve its appearance. Compared to veneers, dental bonding may not last as long, but if you take proper care of your teeth, it should last for about ten years.

    However, it’s essential to be careful when eating to avoid hard candy, ice cubes, and other hard substances that can cause the composite material to break down or crack. Additionally, the application’s lifespan can be affected by factors such as grinding your teeth or having an imperfect bite, which can cause the composite material to deteriorate more quickly.
