Tooth bonding is an affordable cosmetic treatment alternative available to some patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their smile. Tooth bonding involves roughening the surface of the tooth and adding a tooth colored material to enhance the shape, repair a chip, or close unaesthetic spacing and gaps. The procedure is very labor-intensive and results depend on the skill level of the treating dentist. Drs. Alan and Barbara are highly-trained in this procedure and use nothing but the best materials for a seamless aesthetic result. When choosing tooth bonding, patients should know that while this procedure provides immediate cosmetic results, it may not last as long as other cosmetic treatments and bondings can stain with time.
