Cosmetic bonding, also called composite veneers, involves a thin coating of putty-like material, called composite resin, placed on the teeth. Dr. Harden blends the composite resin to match your tooth color and hardens it with a special curing lamp. With cosmetic bonding, Dr. harden can cover chipped or broken teeth and close gaps between teeth. Advantages of composite veneers over porcelain veneers include time and cost. Typically, Dr. Harden can bond teeth in a single appointment.
Dr. Harden has been creating composite bonding / veneers for over 20 years and routinely creates beautiful smiles using this technique. However, if several teeth are involved in a smile makeover, then porcelain veneers are typically the better option.
