Dental bonding is a procedure where a tooth-coloured resin or filling material is applied to the tooth and is hardened using an LED or Halogen light. It can be used to treat various conditions, including:
- Repairing decayed teeth
- Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
- Changing the shape of teeth
- Replacing silver mercury fillings
- Improving the appearance of discoloured teeth
- Closing spaces between teeth
- Making teeth look longer
One of the biggest advantages of dental bonding is that it is a relatively simple procedure. Since nothing has to be custom made, as it does with porcelain veneers or crowns, dental cosmetic bonding can usually be done in a single visit to our Toronto office – usually less than 1 hour long. Also, none or only a very small amount of enamel is removed from your tooth, resulting in less tooth sensitivity. Often, no anesthesia is needed for the treatment.
Since dental bonding is not as strong as other procedures, like crowns or veneers, it is very important to avoid any bad habits, such as biting your fingernails and chewing on ice or other very hard foods.
Dental bonding is affordable way to fix your teeth, leaving you with a dazzling smile.
