If you have a tooth that has been cracked, chipped, discolored, or slightly decayed, you will likely be presented with a few restoration options. These will probably include dental veers, crowns, and dental bonding. Bonding is the quickest and most cost-effective of the restoration options, but it’s the one people tend to know the least about.
