Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth without reducing the structure of the tooth in most cases. Dr. Wohlers will sculpt the material to create a natural-looking tooth. Bonding corrects chipped, broken and discolored teeth, and, in some cases corrects gaps. It is less expensive than veneers but doesn’t last as long and can stain. A benefit of bonding is that, generally, the natural structure of the tooth can be maintained.
