What is
Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is an easy and conservative way to correct minor errors in your teeth’s shape and size. A tooth coloured resin is applied, shaped to match your existing teeth and the specifications of what you’d like, and then hardened with a special light.

How is Bonding Material Applied?

The doctor first isolates the tooth or teeth that need to be bonded. Next, a gentle phosphoric acid compound is applied to the tooth for 15 seconds to ready the tooth for bonding. The phosphoric acid does not cause any discomfort and is a necessary step to ensure that the bonding resin material will adhere properly to the tooth surface.

The next step is the application of the liquid bonding resin. This is a putty-like compound, matched to your natural tooth colour, that is applied in layers to the tooth surface, shaped properly to match the other teeth, and then “cured” with a special blue light. The resin is applied in several layers and sculpted until the tooth is in the right shape and thickness.

The final step involves smoothing, buffing, and polishing the bonded tooth so it looks natural and blends nicely with nearby teeth.

Is Tooth
Bonding Permanent?

Tooth bonding generally lasts from seven to 10 years with proper daily dental hygiene and regular checkups. Bonded teeth need to be checked periodically due to wear and aging or the need to be redone. Bonded teeth also tend to stain more easily.
