Modifying the Look of Your Smile

If you have noticeable imperfections on your teeth that you'd like to have covered, dental bonding may offer a non-invasive solution.

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin material is applied to the tooth in order to alter the shape or look of the tooth.

This procedure is a versatile option, able to help fix a variety of dental issues. These can include chips, cracks, discoloration and gaps between teeth. Dental bonding can also be used to reshape teeth for a more balanced and symmetrical look.

The Bonding Procedure

The bonding process typically requires only one appointment lasting 30-60 minutes per tooth.

Your dentist will start by selecting a shade of composite resin that closely matches the natural color of your tooth.

A conditioning liquid is applied to the tooth to help the composite resin adhere properly. Then, the resin is carefully applied, molded, and smoothed into the desired shape.

A curing light is used to harden the resin and bond it to the tooth's surface. This is followed by final molding, smoothing and polishing for a natural-looking shine.

Bonding vs. Veneers

Porcelain veneers are custom-made ceramic shells bonded to the front of your teeth, requiring some enamel removal during placement. While they can be a durable solution, it is important to note that replacements may be needed every 10 to 20 years to preserve their appearance and functionality.

Dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require the removal of enamel. But it is important to note that bonded teeth may need touch-ups every three to 10 years to keep them looking their best.

Both procedures can improve the appearance of your teeth by fixing imperfections, such as chips, gaps, and discolouration.
