TEETH BONDING

Teeth bonding is non-invasive treatment that is highly effective in delivering you a brand-new smile. There is minimal preparation needed on your natural teeth and after the procedure is complete, you will be amazed at your new smile.

WHAT IS TEETH BONDING?

Teeth bonding is also known as dental bonding and it is a new way of repairing teeth. This treatment uses special tooth-coloured resin that is bonded to the teeth to repair discoloured, chipped fractured or decayed teeth.

WHAT KIND OF DENTAL ISSUES CAN BE RESOLVED WITH TEETH BONDING?

The composite resin used in teeth bonding allows a dentist to re-shape teeth. The resin can be polished to look like natural teeth. The dental problems treated with teeth bonding include chipped teeth, gappy teeth, and discoloured teeth.

Furthermore, dental bonding can also be used in creating longer teeth. Another useful application of the bonding material is its use as an alternative to silver fillings. These fillings resemble the colour of natural teeth.

TEETH BONDING PROCEDURE

The main advantage of a teeth bonding treatment is that you could have everything completed in just one visit!

One of the first step in the treatment is to colour match the composite resin with the colour of your teeth. This ensures that your teeth look natural after the treatment.

The next step is to prepare your teeth for the resin to places. A light amount of a conditioning liquid is used to treat your tooth surface so that the resin can bond with tooth surface.

With the teeth prepared, now the resin is applied to the teeth. It is a thick liquid that can be formed to the desired shape. Once the resin has been applied, a special ultra-violet light is shone over the resin. This hardens the resin and sets it onto the tooth.

The final step includes polishing the resin surface to appear like your natural teeth.

This relatively short procedure produces amazing results and is also very economical.
