Composite bonding, also called cosmetic bonding, can be done to a single tooth or multiple teeth. It’s used to close spaces, repair fractures, or restore a worn tooth.
The best part of this type of restoration is the conservative nature of the process. Usually material is added to the missing portions and very little tooth structure is removed. This process can take anywhere from 1 hour to several hours depending on the number of teeth. It’s done in one visit and the patient is not required to wear a temporary restoration. Often the patient doesn’t need to have their tooth numbed up.
If you have questions or if you would like to schedule a consult to see if you would be a candidate for bonding please contact our office at: 319-365-4997
