Dental bonding is among the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve a smile. The dentist applies a matching tooth-colored plastic material to the tooth that he hardens with a special light. This light ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth. Then the doctor shapes the material into the desired length and width and he polishes the surface to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.

Why Dental Bonding?

Decayed Teeth

Dental bonding can restore decayed teeth aesthetically to give the colour and feel of natural teeth

Discloured Teeth

Our highly advanced resin composite material can mask those stained teeth providing a beautiful smile.

Restore Gapped Teeth

Spaces between teeth can be a problem for some patient as it causes an unsightly smile as well as allowing food to be pushed in between teeth causing gum irritation, caries and bad mouth odour.

Alternative to Amalgam (silver) Fillings

Amalgam (Silver) fillings not only cause bad appearance, but there are numerous articles published concerning their longterm safety. It’s time to replace those fillings with resin composite fillings that are now recommended both for safety and aesthetics.

There are many advantages to dental bonding including bonding is the least expensive of most, if not all, cosmetic procedures. Also, dental bonding can be done in one office visit, whereas porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers must be manufactured in a laboratory. Another advantage to bonding is that only a very little bit of tooth enamel is removed.

Many cosmetic dentists view dental bonding as best suited for minor cosmetic changes and for correction of teeth in areas of very low bite pressure (front teeth). Because bonding can chip, it is very important to avoid practices such as nail biting, chewing on ice and other hard food/objects and using your teeth to open things.
