Cosmetic tooth bonding uses a material called “composite resin” that has the same color of your actual teeth. Bonding is used for filling cavities, masking discolored teeth, whitening, repairing fractures, and making cosmetic improvements to the natural tooth, usually in one appointment. This composite can also be applied to chipped, cracked, spaced, or uneven teeth.
