Composite bonding (commonly referred to as bonding), can work wonders for a smile that’s developed some aesthetic damage.
Using materials that match the shade, translucency and texture of your teeth, gaps between teeth can be closed, spots and discolorations can be eliminated, and your self-confidence can be enhanced through the improved appearance of your smile.
Our dentists will match the shade of your existing teeth and then tooth-coloured composite resin is applied to the tooth - similar to the procedure used for filling. The resin is hardened (cured) with a curing light and then shaped, contoured, and polished to give an authentically natural appearance.
Composite bonding is excellent for small defects in the teeth - spots, chips, or gaps between teeth. For smile alterations involving an entire tooth or multiple teeth, a more comprehensive procedure will need to be performed - such as implants.
Dental Bonding can be a quick fix for minor teeth problems
Dental bonding can fix minor teeth problems including:
- Worn out teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Teeth with gaps
Bonding is the least expensive cosmetic procedure and can be completed during a single dental visit. However if a tooth has decay, functional damage or severe fractures, you may need a crown or filling instead. Crowns and fillings offer more structural support to a tooth with severe damage.
