All You Need to Know About Tooth Bonding

A bonding compound known as composite dental resin can be used to correct a number of dental concerns.

In summary:

– Dental bonding can repair chipped, cracked, or uneven teeth, or to fill a cavity as an alternative to traditional metal amalgam.

– Dental bonding can also be used to disguise a small gap in between teeth, preventing the need for long-term orthodontics.

– Your dentist will refer you to a periodontist to perform the procedure using composite resin that is colour-matched to your teeth.

“Once bonded to your teeth, it’ll need to be maintained, but is considered a permanent solution to your smile.”
