At our Edmonton dental office, dental bonding can be used to repair damaged teeth and help improve the look of your smile.
Dental bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment in which a tooth-coloured dental composite resin is used to repair a tooth. It's called bonding because the material literally bonds to the tooth.Book Online
Your dentist will apply the composite to your tooth in layers and use a light to harden each layer.
After the last layer of composite resin is hardened, your dentist will shape and polish it to form your tooth. The finished tooth looks natural and smooth.
Dental bonding can help repair discoloured or chipped teeth. It can also be used to close gaps between teeth or to alter tooth shape and colour.
Your dentist can choose a composite resin that best matches the colour of your natural teeth so that it blends in, creating a more natural result.
Bonded composites have an average lifespan of four to eight years, but they often last longer, depending on where in the mouth it is applied and how it is maintained. The restoration can be touched up and even re-bonded over time, if necessary.
