Dental bonding is a process through which your dentist applies a composite resin over the broken or damaged area of your tooth.
Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure, and, unlike veneers or crowns, dental bonding may not require the removal of enamel. However, composite resin is not as strong as porcelain materials used for crowns or veneers, so it may not be as durable.
During an initial consultation, your dentist will work closely with you to determine whether or not tooth bonding will be an effective repair for your chipped, discolored, or damaged tooth. Your dentist at Marks Family Dentistry will perform a thorough examination to decide whether or not tooth bonding is the appropriate treatment for your long-term oral health goals. If you are in need of a stronger or more permanent repair, we may suggest that you consider veneers or a crown.
