While cosmetic bonding is well over 25 years old, improvements in the materials have recently made bonding one of the hottest item in dentistry. Bonding is a procedure in which a white plastic filling can be applied to the natural outer surface of the tooth. We can take a discolored or broken tooth and “glue” a fresh surface on it. Another common concern is spaces between front teeth called diastemsas. Instead of using porcelain crowns, we can now do it with bonding. There are big advantages:
- Healthy tooth structure is left intact.
- The bonding blends in with the natural tooth structure.
- It’s less expensive than a crown.
