What Is Dental Bonding?
Composite bonding, also known as bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure that can repair and enhance the appearance of teeth. Using materials that match the shade, translucency, and texture of the patient's existing teeth, gaps between teeth can be closed, spots and discolorations can be eliminated, and overall self-confidence can be increased through the improved appearance of the smile.
What's Involved in Dental Bonding
Our dentists will match the shade of the patient's existing teeth and then apply tooth-coloured composite resin to the tooth, similar to the procedure used for fillings. The resin is then hardened with a curing light and shaped, contoured, and polished to give an authentically natural appearance.
A Rapid Fix for Minor Dental Concerns
Composite bonding is excellent for small defects in the teeth such as:
- Worn out teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Teeth with gaps
Comparing Dental Bonding to Other Dental Treatment Options
When it comes to restoring your teeth or achieving your dream smile, there are various options available. The best choice for you will depend on your specific needs. During your consultation, we will discuss all of your options and the benefits and drawbacks of each, to help you make an informed decision. One option to consider is dental bonding, which has several advantages, such as:
- Being quick and painless: Unlike fillings or dental veneers, which require some drilling to prepare the tooth, dental bonding usually does not require any removal of your natural tooth, making it almost always completely painless.
- Being a cost-effective option: More extensive treatments like dental veneers and orthodontics can be more expensive. However, for minor changes to a few teeth, dental bonding is a simple and cost-effective treatment.
- Being great for small repairs: If you're envisioning extensive changes to your smile, you may benefit from a more complex treatment plan like dental veneers, crowns, or orthodontics. But for minor changes, dental bonding is a simple solution.
