A favored procedure for minor dental corrections, bonding -also known as composite bonding- is a quick and affordable way to address the following:
- Low Bite Pressure due to short/uneven teeth
- Tooth Decay
- Cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
- Protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede
Dental bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. Unlike veneers and crowns, which are customized tooth coverings that must be manufactured in a laboratory, bonding usually can be done in one clinic visit unless several teeth are involved. Another advantage, compared with veneers and crowns, is that the least amount of tooth enamel is removed. Also, unless dental bonding is being performed to fill a cavity, anaesthesia is usually not required.
