Dental bonding can correct a tooth gap, can cover spots, chips, and discolorations, can repair fractures, and can re-shape teeth. This is generally used for smaller defects in one or two teeth. Tooth bonding is a “direct” technique in that it is done by the dentist directly on the tooth. This, of course, requires artistic ability on the part of the cosmetic dentist, since the work is done freehand with no outside help. Colors must be matched and blended; the tooth must be sculpted, finished, and polished to a beautiful result. While dental bonding works very well for these small defects in the teeth-chips, spots, and gaps between teeth-it doesn’t work well for large smile makeovers.
