What Is Teeth Bonding?

Teeth bonding, also called dental bonding or composite bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves the application of a tooth-coloured composite material—to reshape, repair, or cover imperfections in your teeth.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Teeth Bonding

Teeth bonding offers several advantages, including:

Versatile Treatment. Teeth bonding can effectively address various cosmetic concerns, such as chipped teeth or discoloured teeth, as well as close gaps and reshape teeth, enhancing your oral health.

Minimally Invasive. Unlike veneers or crowns that may require significant tooth preparation, bonding does not require any anaesthesia and tooth enamel removal, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.

Quick and Convenient. Teeth bonding can often be completed in a single appointment with our dentists. This efficiency makes it a convenient option for people with busy schedules or those seeking immediate cosmetic improvements.

Very Low Risk of Complications. Teeth bonding is generally a safe and reversible treatment. This means that if you're not satisfied with the results or wish to explore alternative treatment options, the bonding material can be removed without causing permanent damage to the natural tooth structure.

Cost-Effective. Dental bonding is usually more affordable than other cosmetic procedures like veneers and crowns. The materials used in bonding are less expensive, and the procedure itself requires less chair time and preparation.

Natural Appearance. The composite resin used in the bonding process is carefully matched to the colour of your natural teeth, ensuring a natural-looking result. Our dentists can blend the bonding material with your surrounding teeth, making it virtually indistinguishable. This helps create a harmonious smile transformation that enhances overall facial aesthetics.

However, there are also some potential disadvantages to consider, such as:

Stain Susceptibility. The composite resin material used in bonding is prone to staining over time, especially if you frequently consume foods and beverages that can cause discolouration.

Durability. The materials used in teeth bonding are not as durable or strong as natural teeth or other restorative materials like veneers or dental crowns. The bonded material may chip or wear down over time, requiring occasional repairs or replacements.

Limited Longevity. While teeth bonding can last several years if cared for properly, it is generally not as long-lasting as other cosmetic treatments. As previously stated, bonding materials may need to be repaired or replaced over time due to wear, chipping, or staining.

Teeth Bonding Procedures

Cosmetic dental procedures typically involve the following steps:

1. Consultation

During the initial consultation, our dentist will examine your teeth and assess their condition to determine if teeth bonding is the right option for you. Our dentist may also take dental X-rays or impressions to gather more information about your teeth and gums. Throughout this process, it is important to communicate your concerns, desired outcomes, and expectations for the procedure.
Based on the examination and your goals, our dentist will create a personalised treatment plan and explain the steps involved in the teeth bonding process, discuss any potential risks or limitations, and answer any questions you may have.

2. Colour Selection

Once the treatment plan has been finalised, our dentist will begin by selecting a composite resin colour or shade that closely matches the natural colour of your teeth.

3. Preparation

Our dentist will prepare the tooth surface for bonding. This typically involves lightly roughening the surface and applying a special conditioning liquid. This step helps the bonding material adhere more effectively to your tooth.

4. Bonding Application

Our dentist will then apply the tooth-coloured composite resin material to the prepared tooth in layers and carefully shape and mould the resin to achieve the desired shape and contour.

5. Hardening

To harden the bonding material, our dentist will use a special curing light. The light activates the chemicals in the resin, causing it to bond and become strong.

6. Reshaping and Polishing

Once the bonding material has hardened, our dentist will trim and shape it further as needed and finally polish the bonded tooth to give it a smooth and natural appearance. This helps the bonding material blend seamlessly with the adjacent teeth.
It is important to note that the procedure takes about 30-60 minutes per tooth.

7. Final Assessment

Our dentist will assess your bonded teeth to ensure they look and feel natural and make any necessary adjustments to achieve the desired result.

Dental Bonding vs Dental Veneers: Understanding the Differences

  • Dental bonding uses a composite resin material, while dental veneers are made of porcelain.
  • Dental bonding typically requires minimal tooth preparation, while dental veneers often involve the removal of a thin layer of enamel.
  • Dental veneers are more durable and stain-resistant compared to teeth bonding.
  • Dental veneers can provide a more natural and translucent appearance, closely resembling the look of natural teeth.
  • Tooth bonding works best in the front teeth, the part with a low bite pressure, while dental veneers are ideal for extensive teeth damage.
  • Dental bonding is a quick treatment and cost-effective option compared to dental veneers.
