You may ask, “What can bonding do for me?” Bonding can quickly fill in ugly gaps between teeth and repair chips and cracks. It is called bonding because the material bonds to the tooth.
According to colgate.com …
Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth.
Sometimes, bonding also is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede.
Dr. Brogdon uses dental bonding to sculpt individual teeth with a special tooth-like material that looks, acts and feels like the real thing.
