Tooth bonding is the application of tooth-colored resin material using adhesives and a high intensity curing light. Bonding is typically used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth.
Dental veneers are thin, translucent all-ceramic shells that are placed over the tooth and applied with special adhesive. Veneers are predominantly used on the front teeth. They are also known as facings, laminates or partial crowns.
