As a common form of tooth restoration, dental bonding involves the use of a tooth-colored resin being bonded and cured with ultraviolet light. This is a cheaper option than veneers and crowns, making it a great option to make smaller cosmetic improvements to your teeth. It’s a safe and quick procedure that can typically be done in one visit because nothing has to be custom made in the laboratory. It’s also desirable because less of the tooth has to be removed in order for the bonding to be completed. Its only downfall is that it is more susceptible to stains and may require cosmetic touch ups more often than other forms of restorative dentistry.
