Direct Resin Bonding is used to replace old fillings, close
spaces, whiten teeth or attach other restorations (like veneers). Bonding is a multi-purpose technique that can help repair and enhance your smile.
Simply put, bonding occurs when
we "bond" or adhere tooth-colored composite resin to your existing
teeth. The resin is used to repair a fractured, worn or chipped
tooth or to whiten and remove discoloration from a tooth. It
can also be used to replace failed fillings or as a base for
another restorative cosmetic dentistry procedure.
Bonding has many advantages. It is minimally invasive, usually requires only one office visit and is virtually pain free. Its greatest benefit, however, is how it boosts self-esteem. If you're reluctant to smile because of the appearance of one or more teeth, bonding may give you the confidence you need to smile freely.
