Bonding

Composite material may be bonded to both front and back teeth. Bonding applies mainly to front teeth to enhance their appearance. No tooth preparation (drilling) is required for direct bonding, and therefore, no local anaesthetic is necessary for such procedures.

Bonding may provide a less expensive alternative to indirect porcelain veneers. This technique can be to situations where teeth are chipped, poorly-shaped, discoloured or spaced apart.
