Cosmetic bonding is an affordable, quick and painless way to repair many cosmetic flaws or injuries, including gaps, stains and chips. Bonding sculpts individual teeth with no or very little structure removed. This technique bonds a composite material that looks, acts and feels like the real thing, to an existing tooth. This procedure usually doesn’t require the use of an anesthetic and is relatively quick to apply. It gives an immediate result and is less expensive than veneers.
