Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves the use of a tooth-coloured resin material to repair or enhance the appearance of your tooth. The procedure involves the application of the resin material to the tooth surface, which is then hardened and shaped to match the natural contour and bite of the tooth.
Dental bonding at Bellesmere Dental can be used to repair a wide range of dental issues, such as:
For this procedure, one of our Scarborough dentists mixes composite resin (a type of plastic) into a paste, then tints the mixture to match the colour of your teeth. Several layers of resin are applied to each tooth. Each layer is hardened under ultraviolet (UV) light or laser. The final steps include shaping and polishing the resin material, so the finished tooth looks natural and smooth.
Dental bonding at our Scarborough dental office can also be used to build up older teeth to make them appear younger. Bonding is an option for people of all ages, including children, as the resin can be replaced as teeth grow. Dental bonding is a simple and effective treatment that can bring balance and uniformity to your smile.
