Bonding

Restore chipped teeth and fill gaps between teeth.

The Problem:
• Gaps between front teeth
• Chipped teeth
• Rough or jagged edges on front teeth
• Dull coloured or stained teeth

The Solution:
Composite resin is a white, tooth coloured material that can be shaded to match your teeth. This material is applied to your teeth and sculpted to cover or replace the problem area. The material is bonded to the surface of your teeth. It is often “cured” or hardened with an intense blue light.

Advantages:
When skillfully applied and sculpted, this material allows you to have a natural, beautiful improvement in your smile.

Disadvantages:
Bonding is initially less expensive than porcelain veneers. However, it tends to breakdown and discolour over time absorbing food/drink stains and will need to be replaced. For this reason, porcelain restorations are usually more cost effective over time.

Alternatives:
Porcelain veneers or crowns are an excellent, longer lasting alternative.
