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:
|Good aesthetics||Excellent aesthetics, they are custom made and artistically crafted by a highly skilled ceramist|
|Correct minor aesthetic flaws||Able to correct most aesthetic flaws|
|Lasts 2-5 years||Lasts 10+ years, they are made to last longer|
|More susceptible to chipping||Less susceptible to chipping|
|Susceptible to staining, regular maintenance required||Does not discolour over time|
|Cheaper short-term alternative||A long-lasting investment|
