Bonding is a quick and painless way to repair chips in your teeth. Bonding uses a white plastic material, called composite resin – a plastic that is semi-liquid at first, but that becomes hard and durable when cured with light.

This material can be tinted to match the colour of natural teeth and can also be contoured and shaped to resemble the missing part of a chipped tooth. It can be painted over a stained tooth, and it can make a fractured tooth look whole and perfect. Composite resin can even build up the size of teeth so gaps between them are reduced or eliminated.

Advantages

Bonding can repair chipped, worn, or jagged teeth. They can also close gaps between teeth and enhance stained or dark teeth.

Disadvantages

Bonding is initially less expensive than porcelain crowns or veneers but it can break down and stain over time. Porcelain restorations are more beautiful and durable over time.
