Teeth Bonding Teeth bonding can be used to treat a variety of dental problems. People with teeth that are chipped, crooked, cracked, stained and gapped can all benefit from bonding and this sort of treatment is sometimes even used to repair teeth that have been damaged due to decay. In the past few years bonding has also become a popular alternative to silver amalgam fillings, which most people consider to be ugly and out of date. The actual procedure involves having an etching solution applied to the teeth that creates slight grooves in them that facilitates the application of resin layers. Composite resin is applied in coats and each coat is hardened immediately with a high-intensity light. Layers of resin are applied until a desired thickness is reached and then the teeth are sculpted and polished. There are two types of bonding available and the severity of each patient

Do porcelain crowns on front teeth look natural?

Yes they do and they are "caps" (crowns are for the molars.) I just spent $12,000 on my teeth and had the front ones capped as well as the bottom front and the rest bonded. You can't tell they aren't your real teeth. Remember, even though the teeth are capped you have to go in for dental check-ups because you can still get cavities.
