Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can be used to repair minor damage like chips and cracks. A composite material is applied to the tooth's surface and shaped to blend in with the surrounding teeth. The material hardens independently and can then be polished for a smooth finish. Bonding is affordable compared to other options but may only last for a while.
A dental crown is a custom-made cap placed over a tooth to restore its original shape and size. This restoration is cemented over the tooth to protect it from further damage and improve its appearance. While crowns are commonly used to protect weak and broken teeth, they are also used to enhance the appearance of discolored teeth. Typically, a crown can last between five and ten years before needing to be replaced.
