Bonding with Composite

A broken tooth is repaired quickly, easily and inexpensively

Another method of handling esthetic problems is cosmetic bonding. This technique involves placing a composite resin directly onto the enamel of the teeth. Composite resin has the appearance and consistency of dough until it is exposed to a special cure light. Although composite bonding can look as good as Porcelain veneers, they will generally not last as long.


The broken tooth was restored with a composite resin filling material. No anesthesia was required, no tooth structure was removed. The result is an excellent restoration that improves the patient's appearance.
