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:
