For smaller defects, cosmetic bonding can be used to improve the appearance of teeth. Bonding involves the use of composite resins, which are made with tiny reinforced glass particles for strength. Composite resins come in many colors and can be matched to your natural teeth for optimal results. While not as strong as veneers, bonding is a less invasive option, as little to no tooth structure needs to be removed. They also do not require a laboratory, allowing them to be completed in one day. Bonding is also a good option to temporarily fix defects until more permanent restorations, like veneers, can be placed. Like natural teeth, composite can absorb stain, therefore heavy staining food and drink should be avoided. Regular professional cleanings and at-home hygiene will ensure a long lasting esthetic result.
