Bonding is a procedure normally used to repair imperfections and minor chips on front teeth. It’s also commonly used to fill in the gaps between teeth. For larger cracks and crooked or misaligned teeth, porcelain veneers or invisalign ( invisible braces) are usually used. When bonding is applied the material used is what dentists use for white or composite fillings. The bonding material can be matched to the color of your teeth and shaped to correct whatever the problem may be. This procedure can usually be completed in one appointment, and anesthesia is rarely needed.
