Bonding

Keywords: Bonding

A term used for facings much like a veneer, except it is made of composite resin instead of porcelain, without a dental lab. Because they are resins, they do not last as long as porcelain veneers, and they can discolor with age. Chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth can be corrected using a dental composite material with the look of enamel and dentin is applied into the cavity or onto the surface of a tooth, where it is then sculpted into shape, contoured and hardened with a high-intensity light.
