Dental Bonding used on the front (anterior) teeth is an excellent method used for repairing minor imperfections such as tooth chips and stains. Bonding can also be used to fill gaps between the teeth – called diastemas. Although no cosmetic dentistry procedure can take the place of good oral and periodontal hygiene, dental bonding performed in the Adriatic Dental’s San Marcos office can brighten your smile quickly and easily.
With dental bonding, a composite resin material is applied to the tooth and then sculpted and shaped to cover damaged areas or to fill in gaps. This material comes in several shades so it can be matched to the natural color of your tooth. Bonding usually requires only one visit, so it is less time-consuming and less expensive than other tooth restoration methods.
