Our Halifax dentists want you to love your smile. Dental bonding can be used to restore the symmetry, shape or colour of your teeth.
What is dental bonding?
Chipped, discoloured, decayed, fractured or damaged teeth can be repaired with a restorative cosmetic treatment called dental bonding. Tooth-coloured material is applied to your natural tooth, then sculpted, hardened, and polished to match the surrounding natural teeth. This procedure literally bonds the material to your tooth.
Uses for Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is one of the easiest and least costly cosmetic dental procedures. It can be used to correct a tooth's shape, symmetry to other teeth, or to enhance its colour.
Dental bonding produces natural looking results. It is a popular option that can protect part of your tooth's root that may be exposed due to receding gums and is sometimes used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings.
The Bonding Process
In most cases, this non-invasive procedure takes about 30 to 40 minutes per tooth and can be completed in one visit.
