Bonding is an alternative to veneers for teeth that are chipped, fractured, discolored or misaligned. The procedure consists of minimally preparing the teeth and then etching, bonding and directly placing the composite material in the desired areas. The composite shades can be mixed to provide the perfect translucency and color to match the adjacent enamel. This can be accomplished in only one visit and is a faster, less expensive way to achieve your esthetic goals.
