Bonded Restoration

Also known as adhesive dentistry, bonding allows the dentist to restore teeth, when applicable, with minimal removal of tooth structure.  Chemicals used on the tooth create micropores in the enamel that the bonding material grabs onto.  Some examples of bonded restorations are: composite (tooth colored or white fillings) fillings, porcelain veneers and repair of broken front teeth, oftentimes eliminating the need for a more extensive restoration.
