Dental Bonding

When We Offer Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an unobtrusive way to repair both the appearance and functionality of your mouth. It may be the solution if you have a chipped, crooked, discoloured, or decaying tooth. This simple procedure is the ideal treatment for many patients since it is quick and inexpensive.

The chance of future issues is lessened by adding a level of bonding over chipped or crooked teeth, while also eliminating any trace of damage. The natural white colour of bonding also makes it the ideal solution for discoloured or decaying teeth. When used as a filling, dental bonding is much less noticeable when compared to silver alternatives, making it the preferred choice for most patients.

Our Dental Bonding Procedure

First, the tooth is prepared by roughing up the surface to promote a strong bond. Next, a white filling material is placed onto your tooth and precisely shaped. Finally, we set the bond using our VALO LED Curing Light to ensure it remains strong for many years. Once the bond is fully set, your dentist will trim and polish it to perfectly match the look of your surrounding teeth. Depending on the severity of the issue, dental bonding is a simple procedure that can be done in a single appointment.

How Long do Dental Bonds Last?

If properly cared for, dental bonds usually last anywhere from 3-10 years, but can remain strong longer than that. The amount of bonding that was performed, and your overall oral hygiene determine the durability of your bond.

What if My Dental Bond Cracks or Chips?

You should inform one of our team members if your dental bond does crack or chip, as it can usually be patched or repaired with ease. This damage can spread and compromise the entire bonding if left untreated, which may require a replacement.

We recommend maintaining a healthy oral hygiene routine by brushing twice-a-day and flossing at least once to avoid damage. Dental bonds stain easier than other cosmetic materials, such as porcelain. Regular visits to our office also help to promote a clean mouth that will support your bonding. Finally, you should avoid biting on materials like fingernails, pens, ice cubes, or any hard foods. These are notorious for cracking and chipping dental bonds.
