The key to this procedure is a tooth-colored composite material that is applied directly to the tooth. The name “bonding” comes from how the material bonds with the enamel. While this process can potentially be used to treat small cavities, it can be used for many kinds of cosmetic corrections.
Compared to other treatments, bonding is quick and can be done over the course of one appointment. It also doesn’t require the removal of any enamel, so it’s a more conservative treatment than porcelain veneers. The material is very easy to apply (the mouth doesn’t need to be numbed), and the end result is a strong structure that feels like your original tooth.
