Dental bonding doesn’t have any major risks. Keep in mind that the composite resin used with this procedure isn’t as strong as your natural teeth. It’s possible for the material to chip or separate from your real tooth. Chipping or breaking, however, doesn’t occur as often with a crown, veneer, or filling.
Can dental bonding be reversed?
Is a tooth bonding procedure reversible? Yes, since bonding is applied without removing the enamel on your teeth, the process is reversible. This means that if you want to change course and restore your teeth or change their appearance with an alternative procedure in the future, you can.
