Bonding

Tooth Bonding is a relatively low cost, single-visit procedure whereby a layer of composite is 'bonded' to the surface of the tooth.

Bonding is most effective when used to repair minor chips. It can also be used in a veneering procedure conceptually similar to Porcelain Veneers, where instead, a composite material is bonded to the tooth surface to correct a variety of aesthetic problems from color to shape. These 'Composite Veneers' are not as colour-stable and are disadvantaged by lack of durability. They are more likely to chip and stain, and they do-not glow in fluorescent light.

Due to their inherent deterioration over time, our cosmetic dentists usually use Composite Veneers as a temporary and diagnostic measure to demonstrate to the patient what can be achieved with Porcelain Veneers.
