Dental Bonding in Oshawa
Looking to change the appearance of your teeth or fix cracked or chipped teeth? Learn more about dental bonding at our Oshawa dental office. Bonding is a composite resin that can be placed and bonded to your teeth. Composites are the materials used for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements, and even changing the color and reshaping of teeth.
Bonding has become a common procedure and can usually be completed in one short visit to our Oshawa dental clinics! Bonding will cover any natural flaws by first applying a thin coating on the front surface of your teeth to which the bonding material is applied. Bonding can be sculpted, colored, and shaped by our skilled dental team to provide the look and feel that you desire.
There are many cases in which our Oshawa dentists may recommend having teeth bonding done.
Dental Bonding is a versatile treatment and can be used to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Fix cracked or chipped teeth
- Close gaps between your teeth
- Change the shape of your teeth
- Improve the look of discolored teeth
Bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin. Our dentists prepare the tooth for bonding by placing a mild chemical on it to roughen the surface. Using a shade guide, we select a shade that closely matches your tooth and then mix and tints the resin. The resin is applied in thin layers and then hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser. We then shape and polish the resin to smooth it and give it a natural look.
The procedure usually takes about 30-60 minutes to complete. You can even get several teeth bonded in one visit. No special techniques are needed to care for bonded teeth - just good oral hygiene.
