Repairing Your Smile With Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a relatively non-invasive cosmetic procedure in which your dentist will bond tooth-coloured composite resin to your tooth to match the natural teeth that surround it.

Dental bonding is most often used to repair discoloured or chipped teeth, but it is also often used to close gaps between teeth, make teeth appear longer, or improve the symmetry of your teeth by changing their shape and colour.

The bonding process may not require significant enamel removal as opposed to other cosmetic treatments such as veneers. 

You will require touch-ups following this procedure, the frequency of which depends on the level of care your teeth get. Patients typically return to have their dental bonding revamped 3 to 10 years after treatment. This timeframe can be prolonged with proper oral hygiene care and regular trips to the dentist.

The Bonding Procedure

Dental bonding will typically require just one visit to your dentist and can usually be completed in 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. 

To prepare your teeth for bonding, your dentist will apply an etching solution to the surface of your tooth, and then apply a composite resin that best resembles the colour of your teeth.

The composite resin is then appropriately moulded into shape and solidified in place with a high-intensity curing light.

Why Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding can be an ideal solution if you have a minor cosmetic dental issue, such as a cracked, discoloured, or gapped teeth.

This procedure can give your teeth a more natural appearance, especially if the tooth being filled is prominently displayed when you smile.

The composite also helps to strengthen your teeth, so you can enjoy meals and go about your everyday life without having to worry about applying too much pressure on your tooth, causing it to break or crack again.
