Dental Bonding

 

Do you have small cosmetic issues with your teeth you wish to address? Have you always thought that cosmetic dentistry was out of your reach or too complex to be practical?

We can correct some minor aesthetic flaws using a non-invasive procedure called dental bonding. Cosmetic dental bonding can be beneficial for patients who want to avoid dramatic procedures but have some small concerns about the appearance of their teeth.

Which Aesthetic Conditions Can You Correct with Dental Bonding?

  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Short or eroded teeth
  • Dark metal fillings
  • Abfractions (exposed roots from recession)
  • Dark spots on teeth and other discolourations

How Does Cosmetic Dental Bonding Work?

If your teeth are yellow or stained, you may consider whitening your teeth prior to dental bonding treatments since the composite material will not whiten without replacing it entirely. 

We will match a custom composite shade to your natural teeth colour so that the bonding will blend well and be practically undetectable.

First, we will etch (roughen) the surface of your tooth. Your dentist will apply a conditioning agent to prepare your tooth to bond to the composite material. Next, composite material will be applied in several layers and hardened with a special curing light. Once we apply the final layer, we will polish and smooth it so that it blends well with your enamel and looks shiny.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Bonding

One of the main benefits of cosmetic bonding is that minimal prep work on your tooth is required. That means that your tooth will be left intact, and we will be adding the composite material, as needed. Because bonding is non-invasive, you should be quite comfortable for your procedure. 

Cosmetic bonding looks and feels natural. 

Cosmetic bonding is a versatile method to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. We can help you determine whether dental bonding will be right for your unique needs.
