If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. Dr. Pate will apply a liquid composite resin, shaded to blend with your tooth's natural color, to create a pleasing shape for your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, he will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration.
In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile! Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers and can last for about 5 to 10 years with the proper care. Bonding will not discolor like your tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.
