Tooth Bonding

Restore chipped teeth and fill gaps between teeth.

The problem:

  • Unsightly gaps between front teeth
  • Slightly 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 bonds to the surface of your teeth like a glue. It is often "cured" or hardened with an intense ultraviolet light.

Advantages:

When skilfully 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 break down and discolour in several years and will need to be replaced. For this reason, porcelain restorations are usually more cost effective in the long term.

Alternatives:

Porcelain laminates or crowns are an excellent, longer lasting alternative.
