The dentists at our dentalhouse locations use dental bonding as a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure to restore a damaged tooth.
Repair Damaged Teeth With Dental Bonding
During a dental bonding procedure, tooth-coloured composite resin is applied to damaged teeth to help improve the appearance of your smile.
During a dental bonding procedure at any of our four locations, your dentist literally bonds tooth-coloured composite resin to your tooth to match the surrounding natural teeth.
This non-invasive cosmetic procedure is typically used to repair chipped or discoloured teeth, but it's also often used to close caps between teeth, to make teeth look larger, or to change their shape or colour, making them appear more symmetrical.
The Bonding Procedure
Dental bonding can typically be performed in a single visit to any of our four locations and can usually be completed within 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.
In preparation for bonding, an etching solution will be applied to the surface of your tooth before a composite resin is used to cover it, matching the shade of your teeth.
A high-intensity curing light is then used to mold the composite resin into shape and harden it into place.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Do you have a minor cosmetic dental issue such as a discoloured, gapped or cracked tooth? Dental bonding may help to resolve it.
After the procedure is complete, your teeth will have a more natural, cohesive look - especially if the tooth being filled is revealed when you smile.
The composite also strengthens your teeth, so you can savour meals without having to be concerned about applying too much pressure to your tooth and cracking it or breaking it again.
