Bonding uses a composite resin to restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolour your smile.

After applying a very mild etching solution that slightly roughs the surface of your teeth ensuring a strong bond is achieved, the resin is applied and sculpted, colour matched and shaped it to provide a natural result. A high-intensity light hardens the material, which is then finely polished.

Many people choose bonding over silver fillings because it looks more natural – the material can be matched to your natural tooth colour. Dental bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures.

Unlike veneers and crowns, which are manufactured in a lab, bonding usually can be done in one appointment visit and unless it is being used to fill a cavity, it can be completed without the need for anaesthetic.
