Bonding can improve the appearance of chipped, broken, cracked and stained teeth and spaces between teeth. Dr. Neuhaus applies a thin layer of tooth-colored composite resin to the teeth to restore chips and cracks, fill in gaps or cover stains, and provide patients with a more attractive and functional smile.
First, a thin layer of plastic material is applied to the tooth’s surface. Then Dr. Neuhaus sculpts the bonding material to the desired shape and bonds it to the tooth using a special light. The bonding material comes in many colors so it will be possible to match the shade of your teeth. Once the plastic has hardened, it is polished until it is entirely smooth. The procedure takes one to two hours and the bonding lasts about 10 years.
