Cosmetic tooth bonding describes a process where the dentist attaches or “bonds” tooth-colored materials directly to your tooth in order to change the color and shape. The natural tooth enamel is then fused together with bonding materials such as porcelain and resins to create a strong structure that still feels like your original tooth.

This dental bonding procedure can be used to for a variety of reasons, such as, to close gaps, repair chipped teeth, protect exposed roots and to restore decayed teeth. Ask Dr. E if your perfect smile can be completed simply by tooth bonding.
