Sometimes, small fixes can do the trick. Dental bonding is a technique in which a tooth-like resin is carefully sculpted and affixed to the tooth, creating a strong, durable surface indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel.
Dental bonding is an excellent solution to several dental problems, including gaps between teeth, chips, cracks, pitting, stains, and cavities. Book your appointment today!
A cosmetic dental bonding procedure involves sculpting and bonding tooth-like resin to the front of your teeth to reverse cosmetic problems like gaps, pits, discolouration, or cracks. It’s highly durable, long-lasting, and natural-looking. However, it isn’t as strong or stain-resistant as your natural teeth, so it’s important to follow our care instructions to ensure you don’t damage your bonding.
Dental bonding is a simple procedure that typically doesn’t require anesthesia and can be completed in a single appointment.
Once your dentist has discussed the procedure with you, they’ll select a matching shade of composite resin to suit your natural teeth colour.
Your dentist will apply the resin to your tooth and shape it appropriately. Then, they’ll harden the resin with ultraviolet light. After your short 30-60 minute procedure, you can get straight back to your day with no downtime.
Remember that while composite bonding can last for years if you look after it, this material is not as strong as your tooth’s natural enamel.
Avoid chewing on hard foods that may crack the composite material, like ice or popcorn kernels. Even ripping open food packaging with your teeth or biting your nails can put bonding at risk. Coffee, tea, and tobacco can also stain both your teeth and the bonding.
Regular dental exams will help you stay ahead of any problems and allow your dentist to treat them before they become more severe.
