What Is Dental Bonding?

Do gaps between your teeth make you self-consciouss?

Are repeat visits to our offices unlikely to fit your schedule?

You can often eliminate embarrassing spaces without the intrusive nature of braces or other costly, time consuming procedures. Of the several procedural options available to you, one that may fit your budget, time constraints and needs is called bonding.

Bonding has become a very common procedure and can usually be completed in one short, comfortable visit.

Bonding is a process by which a composite resin is placed on your teeth. Composites are the materials used for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the colour and shape of teeth. Bonding can be used to lighten any stains you may have, close up minor gaps and correct awkward looking crooked teeth.

The procedure is safe and quick; bonding will cover any natural flaws by first applying a thin coating on the front surface of your teeth to which the bonding material is applied. Bonding can be sculpted, coloured and shaped to provide the look and feel that you desire, which is always a pleasing result. To finish the procedure a high-intensity light hardens the material, and the surface is finely polished to appear as natural as any tooth in your mouth.
