What are the benefits of bonding?
Bonding can significantly improve the appearance of a tooth and can usually be done in a single office visit. On back teeth bonding is preferable to a metal filling as it will strengthen the structure.
How long does bonding last?
Bonding is durable in the posterior and many applications on the front teeth. For full coverage of front teeth, it is expected only to last around five years. For full coverage on the anterior teeth, veneers are usually best for a long term solution.
Veneers are usually the preferred option
Veneers are stronger and last longer, which is why most people choose veneers over bonding. However, bonding has its place as a short term solution.
