Bonding is an alternative to veneers, and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned. To prepare your tooth, we lightly etch the surface and apply a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, Dr. Cagle applies a resin material and sculpts it into the desired shape. After the resin has cured, we will sculpt and polish the tooth again to bring it to a lustrous and natural shape and shine. In one simple visit, bonding can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly.
