Dental bonding can produce amazing improvements by fixing chips or filling spaces and gaps in your teeth. It too can correct minor misalignments. Bonding is covering a portion of the surface of teeth with durable plastic to either change the tooth's color or shape, or to rebuild broken teeth. Bonding is similar to veneers, but not as strong or long-lasting, and it is a low-cost way to improve your smile. Bonding is great for preserving tooth structure where only minor alterations are needed, for children who have chipped front teeth and for adults who need an alternative for veneers and understand the limitations and higher maintenance and replacement frequency.
