Bonding for a Beautiful Smile

Print on Demand

Bonding can correct certain dental problems effectively and inexpensively. By bonding plastic or porcelain to the tooth, a dentist can:


•  Cover discoloration.

•  Close small gaps between teeth.

•  Repair fractured and chipped teeth.

•  Protect exposed roots caused by receding gums.

•  Seal out decay-causing bacteria on back teeth.

If you’ve had your teeth bonded, take these steps to prevent chips, stains, or other problems.

•  Don’t chew ice or bite down on hard foods or candy.

•  Avoid smoking, drinking coffee or tea, or eating blueberries or other foods that easily stain.

•  Have the bonded teeth checked every three to five years. They may need to be touched up or done over.
