Bonding to fix decayed and chipped teeth

A Direct Bond

Direct bonding quickly fixes decayed, and chipped teeth in one office visit. This type of bonding restores the shape, function, and look of the patient’s natural teeth.

An Indirect Bond

On your first appointment, your dentist will make a mold of the decayed or damaged tooth. The mold is subsequently transmitted to a dental laboratory in order to construct an indirect filling or inlay. Inlays and fillings are indirectly formed by resin composites. Your dentist will bond the filling or inlay to your tooth at your second session.


Bonding Veneers

Composite veneer bonding is usually regarded as a cosmetic treatment.

Composite veneers can change your teeth’s size, form, and color. It can also fill gaps and modify the tooth length.
