Tooth Bonding

Bonding is a procedure that can be used to fix chipped, cracked or discolored teeth. It can also be used to fill in gaps between teeth, protect the root of a tooth, or as an alternative to silver amalgam fillings. A putty-like bonding material is applied to the teeth and is then sculpted, shaped and colored to suit your needs. After this material is hardened, the new surface is smoothed and polished, and you have a great new smile.

Here are two mini-movies showing examples of teeth before and after bonding. The example on the left has a large chip in a front tooth. The one on the right shows discolored teeth and other imperfections.
