Tooth bonding can improve the appearance of one’s teeth by making them look more uniform and eliminate chips.

Length of Procedure: Up to 60 minutes per tooth.
Anesthesia: None, unless bonding is being done to cover a cavity.
Recovery Time: None
Treatment Frequency: One
Risks: None
Duration of Results: 5-8 years on average – if you’re careful.
