Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure through which a tooth-colored resin is bonded to the front surface of the tooth. Patients sometimes choose bonding over veneers or crowns because it is faster and more affordable option. However, bonding also doesn’t last as long and is less stain-resistant. For this reason, it is most typically used for smaller cosmetic improvements as opposed to major restorations. The dentist will assess your situation and discuss whether bonding would be the best option for you.
