If you have minor imperfections in your smile, such as small chips or irregularly shaped teeth, dental bonding may be an ideal treatment option for you. Dental bonding uses a composite material to help patients achieve beautiful smiles. In addition to improving tooth shape, dental bonding can also be used to cover discolored teeth or close small gaps between teeth. Unlike with other restoration options, there is little to no tooth material removed with dental bonding—the tooth surface may simply be roughened slightly to help the composite material bind tightly to the tooth. The dental bonding process only takes 30 to 60 minutes to complete, and the results can last for years. Anesthesia is not generally required, and the treatment process can be completed in a single dental visit.
