Tooth BondingAn Overview
When it comes to quick, economical tooth repair or addressing minor cosmetic concerns, tooth bonding can be the perfect solution for your needs. Ideal for patients of any age, tooth bonding is completed during a single visit and can offer natural-looking results that can last for 10 or more years with proper care.
Dr. Kim often recommends tooth bonding to patients desiring to change the color and shape of a tooth or to address minor chips, cracks and gaps between teeth. An alternative to porcelain veneers, bonding can allow younger patients to restore dental health with less cost and provide adult patients the opportunity to “try out” a new look without the larger commitment of time and money.
Tooth bonding is typically an easy procedure that causes minimal to no discomfort. Completed in one visit with a composite resin material, tooth bonding is not considered a permanent restoration and involves minimal tooth preparation.
