Bonding is used when there is minor chipping to the edges of the teeth or the presence of cavities that are causing the discoloration (usually in between the teeth).

Using the latest in tooth-colored restorative materials that can simulate the enamel in shade and brilliance as well as wear, the missing portion or decay can be restored. The enamel edges surrounding the missing portion are roughened (mechanically and chemically), then the restoration is applied, creating a very strong bond which also seals and protects the area.
