What is Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin material is applied to your teeth to improve your smile. Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained. Dental Bonding will also be an economical solution to reduce spaces between them and improve your smile (“affordable smile makover”).

Its also an affordable, durable, and long-lasting procedure. It is non-invasive, and therefore its ideal for children and young adults. While people may not know so much about the process, dental bonding is a dependable cosmetic dentistry solution. If you want to learn more about restorative bonding, we encourage you to call our dental office at 201 778 0225 for a consultation.
