Dental bonding is an alternative to porcelain veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged.
Considerations for Dental Bonding
The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before need of repair. In many cases, however, dental bonding can last for much longer. Many variables change the lifespan of dental bonding.
