Answers

1.) a. Composite resin–The material is made out of a composite resin that is sometimes used in fillings. This resin is natural-looking so that it doesn’t stand out against your other teeth. The resin can also be bonded to your teeth with only minimal enamel modification, and can be replaced if it is damaged.

2.) d. All of the above–Dental bonding is a useful cosmetic procedure for filling cracks in teeth, covering severe stains that won’t come out with teeth whitening, and helping restore teeth with chipped or worn edges. It can also close gaps in teeth or be used to make teeth more symmetrical.

3.) a. One–Bonding can usually be completed in one office visit, as it is a fairly quick procedure, and no anesthesia is required.
