Repair minor imperfections in your teeth with cosmetic bonding treatments for a healthier smile.
As we age, teeth are more likely to have minor damage from everyday wear and tear. A chipped tooth may look unpleasant and decrease confidence, but the size of the damage also affects the tooth’s overall health.
Cosmetic bonding can repair discolourations, chips, cracks, or gaps in the teeth. If left untreated, chipped or damaged teeth lead to jaw issues, headaches, or other infections. In severe cases, removing the entire tooth crown may be required to treat a damaged tooth (known as root canal treatment). Our dental team is happy to meet for a consultation to help determine if cosmetic bonding is the right solution for you.
Cosmetic tooth bonding is a simple treatment to improve many dental issues and enhance the overall look of your teeth. The procedure uses a strong composite material that comes in various shades. Our dentists will match the composite colour to your original tooth, so it blends seamlessly and appears natural. Cosmetic bonding is a versatile treatment option for correcting discoloured teeth, reshaping teeth, repairing small chips, or closing larger gaps.
Many patients opt for cosmetic dental bonding since it’s a quick solution for treating minor dental concerns. The results are generally more cost-effective and involve no injections. Unlike dental veneers, cosmetic bonding does not require the removal of your natural tooth structure, making the process effortless, comfortable, and more affordable.
To see if cosmetic bonding is best for your dental needs, reach out to our team and let’s talk about your treatment options.
Cosmetic dental bonding is a non-surgical treatment with little to no preparation on your natural teeth. Before the treatment begins, our team will note the colour of your existing teeth. A cosmetic shading chart with around 26 different tooth shades is used to colour-match the bonding material to your natural teeth. The next step is to gently clean and roughen (or etch) the tooth surface. Tooth etching prepares the tooth’s surface for better adhesion when the cosmetic bonding material is applied.
Once the tooth surface is ready, we apply a small amount of bonding material to your tooth in layers. Ultraviolet light cures or hardens the material between each thin layer. The bonding and curing process is repeated until the tooth is rebuilt to its original height and shape. Your newly restored tooth is then polished and refined to look and feel natural.
