Veneers may be expensive or too intrusive for some interested in cosmetic dentistry. Similar to veneers, composite bonding, also known as dental bonding, maybe a convenient and less permanent option. Veneers require that a patient’s teeth be etched (a process that is not reversible) for implantation to be successful. Composite bonding can be applied to any clean tooth and easily adjusted by a dentist. Unlike veneers placed to cover an entire tooth, composite bonding is applied directly to the site of the tooth’s imperfection.

Composite bonding is best for correcting minor imperfections such as the form or color of teeth. Teeth that have intense stains or are naturally discolored may be immune to the effects of teeth whitening treatments, and composite bonding may be one of a mere handful of options that can alter the tooth, so it matches the rest of the mouth. Slight cracks or chips in teeth can be filled in and covered up using bonding, and applying bonding to the edges of adjacent teeth can minimize the size and appearance of gaps. Composite bonding can even transform teeth too small or do not match others in an individual’s mouth.
