Bonding is a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or crooked. Bonding can often be completed in a single visit and can significantly change the appearance of your smile. However, plastic resin is not as strong as tooth enamel and is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Veneers are a more long lasting solution for chips and gaps, but in many cases the bonding gets the result and you could be quite happy with the ease of your improved appearance.
