Sometimes, we are able to achieve incredible cosmetic and functional change with bonding. Bonding is a more conservative, yet shorter lived, way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. It is particularly effective for minor cosmetic issues, or for younger teenagers and adults.

During dental bonding, special bonding material is sculpted onto your tooth -- as opposed to in your tooth as with traditional fillings. The material "bonds" with your teeth without damaging the underlying tooth structure. Bonding can be reversed or added to within certain restrictions. Because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth, especially when completed by a true artist like Dr. Armstrong.

For some individuals, bonding is a fast and remarkable cosmetic solution. We'll let you know if bonding is a good option for you.
