Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Do you have small cosmetic issues with your teeth you wish to address? Have you always thought that cosmetic dentistry was out of your reach or too complex to be practical?
We can correct some minor aesthetic flaws using a non-invasive procedure called dental bonding. Cosmetic dental bonding offers a solution for patients who want to avoid dramatic procedures, but have some small concerns about the appearance of their teeth.
Which Aesthetic Conditions Can You Correct with Dental Bonding?
- Uneven spacing between teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Short or worn teeth
- Dark metal fillings
- Abfractions (exposed roots from recession)
- Dark spots on teeth and other discolourations
How Does Cosmetic Dental Bonding Work?
If your teeth are yellow or stained, you may consider whitening your teeth prior to dental bonding treatments since the tooth-coloured material will not whiten without replacing it entirely.
We will match a custom colour to your natural teeth so that the bonding will blend well and will blend in nicely.
First, we will prepare the surface of your tooth. Your dentist will apply a conditioning agent to help your tooth to bond to the bonding material. Next, the bonding will be applied in several layers and hardened with a special curing light. Once we apply the final layer, we will polish and smooth it so that it blends well with your enamel and looks natural.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Bonding
One of the main benefits of cosmetic bonding is that minimal prep work on your tooth is required. That means that your tooth will be left intact, and we will be adding the composite material, as needed. Because bonding is non-invasive, you should be quite comfortable for your procedure.
Cosmetic bonding looks and feels natural. Your cosmetic dental bonding will allow you to avoid dark margins or discolouration to your natural teeth.
Cosmetic bonding is a versatile method to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. We can help you determine whether dental bonding will be right for your unique needs or whether you might prefer cosmetic alternatives such as veneers.
