Bonding is a process that can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, stained, or have spaces between them. The process usually requires little to no drilling. The tooth is first prepared by roughening the tooth surface. Any damage to the surface area is also removed. A resin with the exact matching shade to your natural tooth color is then bonded to the surface and contoured into the desired shape. Finally, the bonded tooth is polished to appear natural. Bonding may not require the use of anesthesia and can usually be completed in one visit.
