What is Composite Bonding?
Have you ever thought about getting veneers, but aren't quite ready to irreversibly alter your teeth? Composite bonding is for you! Composite bonding is a completely additive procedure that is completed in a single, painless visit. No numbing required. Filling material is added to the edges and front surfaces of the teeth to change the shape and shade creating aesthetic enhancements without the need for porcelain veneers.
