Dental Bonding Canley Heights

Dental bonding is the application and hardening of tooth-coloured material to teeth.

Unlike porcelain veneers and crowns, which usually take more than two visits to finish, this treatment can be performed in a single dental visit.

Dental bonding may be right for you in the following cases

Discoloured teeth: Dental bonding is especially useful if you have not been able to achieve a desired level of whitening with a professional whitening treatment.

Minor cavities: Dental bonding is suitable for treating minor decay of the front teeth as it creates a seamless blend with the surrounding teeth. It can also be used to protect portions of a tooth root that have been exposed when gums recede.

Minor chips or fractures: Repairing small cracks and chips is important to prevent the damage from spreading and to improve the appearance of your smile.

Gaps between teeth: Dental bonding is used to close gaps between your teeth.

Misshaped teeth: Since the resin used in dental bonding is individually shaped to each tooth; teeth can be reshaped.

Small or large teeth: The size of both small and large teeth can be corrected with dental bonding reshaping.

The Dental Bonding Procedure

Dental bonding takes about 30 minutes for each tooth. The result is visible after three easy steps.

Ideal candidates go through the following:

Z Preparation

A dental hygienist cleans your teeth to reveal the natural tooth colour. Your Canley Heights dentist will choose a shade of material that matches your tooth shade.

Z Bonding

To make the material bond properly, the surfaces of the target tooth are coarsened. A conditioning liquid is applied on the surfaces of the tooth. The resin is then applied, shaped, and smoothed into the desired result.

Z Curing

To harden the bonded material, a curing light is focused on the tooth for about 30 seconds.

Once the material is hard, your Canley Heights dentist will evaluate the result and may trim the tooth to perfect it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a treatment where special composites are used to repair a damaged tooth. The composite is typically soft when applied to the tooth; then it is reshaped and adjusted accordingly. The composite is then hardened using a special curing light.
Will others be able to tell if I had my tooth bonded?
The composites used for tooth bonding are made to look just like your natural teeth, so it is impossible for others to tell a tooth repair.
Does dental bonding require several visits?
Not at all. Tooth bonding requires just a single visit to the dentist. The procedure typically lasts around 30 minutes per tooth.
