Do you have cracked, chipped, or discoloured teeth? If so, you may be a good candidate for dental bonding.
Dental bonding is considered to be the most conservative procedure among other cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments as it only involves small alterations to the original tooth.
In as little as 1 hour, you will be amazed with your result and leave our office wearing your new confident smile. When placed correctly, dental bonding provides you a healthy, natural-looking smile.
Uses of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding can fix various dental issues, such as:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Dental gaps (disastema)
- Short teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Teeth with amalgam fillings
- Teeth that have been affected by receding gums
Dental Bonding Procedure
The dental bonding procedure is simple, quick, and minimally invasive. It only takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete the procedure. Most often, no anaesthesia is required unless the dentist also needs to fill a decayed tooth.
The first step is tooth preparation. Using a shade guide, the dentist will choose a composite resin that closely matches the natural shade of your teeth. The tooth will be slightly roughened, during which a conditioning material is applied so that the resin can better adhere to the prepared tooth.
To harden the resin, the dentist will use a special blue light or dental laser. Once the resin has hardened, the dentist may trim the tooth if needed. Lastly, the bonded tooth will be polished to match the sheen of your other natural teeth.
Ideal Candidates for Tooth Bonding
At Simply Smiles Dental, dental bonding is one of our most popular treatment options to restore patient’s teeth that suffer from cracks and discolouration. It is a non-invasive and cost-effective way to repair and enhance your smile.
However, if your tooth has more extensive damage or you want to achieve a more dramatic change in the shape or colour of your teeth, then your Toorak dentist may suggest other options.
