Dental Bonding is an excellent way to repair slightly chipped, discoloured, or crooked teeth. During a dental bonding procedure, a white (tooth coloured) filling is placed onto your tooth’s surface to significantly improve its appearance.
The tooth surface is first prepared and conditioned, and then a filling material is applied to adhere to your teeth. Because the materials are available in a wide array of tooth-coloured shades, it will closely match the appearance of your natural teeth.
Dental bonding is also used for filling decayed teeth in place of amalgam (mercury) fillings. Most patients prefer bonded fillings since the colour is much more natural and less noticeable, compared with silver amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be applied onto front or back teeth.
Bonding is less expensive than some other dental treatments such as veneers, partial crowns or full crowns, and can easily be completed in a single visit to our clinic. Just like your natural teeth, bonding can stain or chip over time but can easily be repaired or polished. If your bonds chip or break, notify our office.
