Dental Bonding

Dental bonding aims to correct many minor defects and is a quick and easy procedure to achieve. It refers to the procedure and the substance and can also be known as tooth bonding.

The bonding substance is a white colour and is flexible as it can be applied to your teeth and be shaped in many ways. Bonding your teeth can be used to fill cavities and is also known as “composite fillings” or “white filling”. Once the substance is applied and shaped, our dentists can use a special curing light to harden it.

Common Defects Corrected by Dental Bonding Include:

  • Small gaps between front teeth
  • Slight crookedness
  • Slight misalignment
  • Small chips or surface cracks
  • Discoloration that will not respond to tooth whitening

Dental Bonding Compared to Porcelain Veneers

Both dental bonding and porcelain veneers can be used to correct tooth defects and improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. The main differences between dental bonding and porcelain veneers are:

Dental bonding is applied directly to your teeth and requires only one visit

We carry a range of tooth coloured bonding materials that will match your natural teeth

Porcelain veneers are made in a dental laboratory and require two visits to complete.They are custom made and artistically crafted by highly skilled dental technicians.

Porcelain veneers are partially translucent like tooth enamel. They absorb and reflect light in similar ways to our natural teeth and therefore mimic our natural teeth much better than a dental bonding procedure.

Porcelain veneers are made to last longer and are stain resistant. Dental bonding is more susceptible to staining, depending on individual dietary intake. However, upon staining, dental bonding can be polished or repaired to remove the external stains.
