Looking for dental bonding services in North York? For almost 30 years (since 1994), Dr. Claire Benmergui Family & Cosmetic Dentistry practice has grown to be your go-to family or cosmetic dental clinic y in North York, Toronto.
You may have an idea of what dental bonding entails. However, let’s discuss the process in depth.
What’s Teeth Bonding?
Dental bonding or teeth bonding refers to a cosmetic dentistry procedure that uses tooth-coloured material (usually composite resin) to address different cosmetic issues.
For Example, Dental Bonding for Gaps in Teeth and More
Dental bonding is commonly used to close gaps between teeth, repair chipped teeth, and uneven teeth, change the colour/shape of teeth, and perform other enhancements to the teeth and the entire smile.
What is the Teeth Bonding Process Like?
A typical cosmetic bonding process at our practice is fast and comfortable. It’s also a painless cosmetic procedure that takes 30 to 60 minutes in most cases.
Step 1: Initial Consultation and Dental X-ray
Before we start with the dental bonding process, Dr. Claire will discuss your aesthetic goals and do a dental x-ray/s to confirm eligibility for the procedure. Those with serious dental issues like gum disease or a decayed tooth/teeth must treat any issue before undergoing teeth bonding.
Step 2: Selecting Teeth Shade
Our dental assistant will provide a shade guide for you to select an ideal composite resin shade that matches your natural teeth or preferences.
Step 3: Preparing the Teeth
The tooth surface may require roughening for the bonding material to stick. However, there is minimal tooth enamel removal, making the process reversible.
Step 4: Composite Resin Bonding
Teeth bonding utilizes the same composite resin used for restorative dentistry procedures i.e., filling cavities, protecting tooth root (exposed due to gum recession), and replacing old dental filling (amalgam fillings) with better cosmetic alternatives. A tooth resin material will be applied and molded before being smoothened to a perfect shape/size.
In some cases, the dentist can cover the entire tooth using composite resin material i.e., install “composite veneers”. If you already have traditional veneers and need a better modern alternative, our composite resin bonding service is for you. The dental bonding procedure utilizes composite resin to reshape or restore the teeth.
Composite bonding is highly recommended for individuals who have traditional veneers installed to address teeth problems like damaged teeth (chipped, cracked, or broken teeth), stained teeth, discoloured teeth, crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, uneven bite, and more.
Step 5: Polishing the Tooth
After the composite resin has hardened (aided by a special light), the dentist will make final adjustments and polish to give your new teeth/tooth a natural look.
Step 6: Aftercare
You need to maintain proper dental hygiene (brushing and flossing regularly) for dental bonding to last. It’s also advisable to use a soft toothbrush and go for dental visits as many times as required for dental checkups and cleaning.
How Long Does Teeth Bonding Last?
Dental bonding is a long-lasting and well-worth-it solution. Touch-ups might be required after several years (after 3-10 years, depending on your special care routine).
