The best use for bonding is to repair slightly chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.
Bonding involves placing tooth colored composite material onto the tooth. The advantages of bonding is that it is inexpensive and an ultra conservative way to restore a tooth. Bonding will discolor eventually and is easier to break.

Appropriate colored bonding resins are chosen by the dentist with the patient’s input and can be viewed on the tooth as a trial “mock up”. Frequently the procedure can be accomplished in one treatment visit, as bonding does involve the dental laboratory
