Dental bonding or teeth bonding involves applying a tooth coloured resin to your teeth which is shaped and set with an ultraviolet light.
Dental bonding is one of the most conservative methods to repair chipped teeth, fill cracked teeth and change your smile. The procedure is quick, cost effective and usually requires no anaesthesia.
In this example a chipped front tooth was rebuilt using dental bonding. This case study also includes teeth whitening to remove the yellow staining.
Your dentist will schedule a consultation to determine if dental bonding is the most appropriate treatment for you.
During the appointment your affected tooth will be etched slightly to create a surface the resin can easily attach to. The tooth coloured resin will be applied and shaped to develop a natural result. The resin is set in place with an ultraviolet light and once set, the resin is trimmed and shaped further until the desired result is achieved.
The procedure usually takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete. If you’re having more than one tooth done, you may need to schedule more time or more appointments.
