What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure where your dentist bonds tooth-coloured composite resin to your tooth to match the surrounding natural teeth. 

Dental bonding is most often used to repair discoloured or chipped teeth, but it is also often used to close gaps between teeth, to make teeth appear longer, or to change their shape or colour, making them look more symmetrical.

The Bonding Procedure

Dental bonding typically requires only one visit to your dentist's office and each tooth can usually be completed in 30 to 60 minutes. 

To prepare your teeth for bonding, an etching solution will be applied to the tooth's surface, and then apply a composite resin to match the colour of your teeth.

The composite resin is then moulded into shape and hardened in place with a high-intensity curing light.

Why Dental Bonding?

If you have a minor cosmetic dental issue, such as a cracked, discoloured, or gapped tooth, dental bonding may help address it.

This procedure can provide your teeth with a more natural appearance, especially if the tooth being filled is prominently visible when you smile.

The composite also helps to strengthen your teeth, so you can enjoy meals without having to worry about applying too much pressure on your tooth and causing further damage.
