Dental bondings are used to enhance a tooth’s shape, colour and function. Because bondings are tooth-coloured, they act as a more cosmetically pleasing alternative to silver fillings. Perfect for the front of teeth or as fillings, bondings are painless, non-invasive and quick to apply.
Reasons for dental bondings
- Small chips
- Tooth fractures
- Discoloured teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
What do dental bondings involve?
The dental bonding process is quick, easy and painless. After adjacent teeth are covered, a tooth-coloured bonding resin is applied to your chipped or damaged tooth in layers — each layer is cured by a special light beam. This curing process bonds the material to your tooth. The dentist will then shape the bonded material to perfect the look and feel of your tooth.
