Bonding is used where a layer of teeth or even a small chipped tooth needs to be replaced. It is a pure cosmetic treatment to form a coat of tooth colored composite resin and cover any broken or decayed teeth.
Bonding for Chipped or Broken Teeth
Accidents or injuries that may cause chipped or broken teeth can easily be covered using bonding treatments. The lost piece will simply be formed and carved to make it look like a natural tooth.
Bonding for Decayed Tooth
In case of decayed toot, the dentists removes or rills the decayed region, cleans it well, and then replaces the removed area with similar colored bonding to make it look and feel like natural teeth.
Bonding gives you a feeling of natural teeth within a week and will not have any effect on your chewing or biting until then as well. Bonding treatments last up to 5 to 10 years, until when it needs slight touch up or replacement. They can be altered in accordance with the color of your teeth, to give you a natural looking smile.
