Bonding involves the placement of tooth-colored composite resin to repair discolored, chipped, fractured, or decayed teeth. It can even be used in a cosmetic fashion to close spaces and change the shape of teeth. Bonding, unlike veneers or crowns, does not require fittings and can be done in one visit at our Orem, Lindon, or Vineyard offices.
Advantages of Bonding
Limitations of Bonding
Bondings can be an excellent choice for your dental needs; however, it is not the best choice for all situations. Bonded teeth need to be carefully cared for so as not to stain or acquire cavities. Bonding will not last long if patients do not take care of their teeth. Additionally, bonding is not as strong as crowns or veneers and therefore is not ideal for patients who clench or grind their teeth. In clenching and grinding cases, crowns or night guards will be needed for optimal results.
