Dental bonding aims to correct many minor defects and is a quick and easy procedure to achieve. It refers to the procedure and the substance and can also be known as tooth bonding.
The bonding substance is a white colour and is flexible as it can be applied to your teeth and be shaped in many ways. Bonding your teeth can be used to fill cavities and is also known as “composite fillings” or “white filling”. Once the substance is applied and shaped, our dentists can use a special curing light to harden it.
A consultation with our dentist will determine what dental problems can be solved with bonding. Our dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth that may involve x-rays and an evaluation of your teeth and gums.
Dental bonding can resolve problems such as:
- decayed teeth
- cracked or chipped teeth
- tooth discoloration
- short teeth etc.
If you have teeth that are extensively damaged our dentist may recommend other restorative or cosmetic procedures that meet more long-term goals.
