Dental bonding is ideally performed for your front teeth to erase minor to moderate aesthetic concerns.
- Small fractures
- Rough areas
- Sharp edges and points
- Exposed root surfaces
Dental bonding is ideal for teeth that do not require extensive work. Bonding preserves the majority of a tooth’s structure because little, if any, preparation is needed. A simple resin-based compound is blended to match your natural teeth and is artfully smoothed and cured into place over the tooth.
