Bonding, also known as bonded restoration, is a painless way to make minor repairs to teeth. In most cases, several teeth can be bonded in one dental visit. Bonding uses tooth-coloured material, called composite resin. Composite resin is put on the tooth, then shaped and hardened with light. The composite resin can be:
- Matched to your teeth.
- Shaped to look like the missing part of a chipped tooth.
- Used to build up teeth and fill between them.
- Used on a broken tooth to restore it to size.
- Painted over a stained tooth to make it match the colour of your other teeth

colour of your other teeth.
Dental bonding can be used to fix teeth that are chipped.
Each layer of the composite resin is shaped and then hardened with a light.
The finished tooth looks natural and smooth.
