Dental Bonding From Your Dentist in Scarborough

If you’ve noticed chips, discoloration, or other minor imperfections in your smile, dental bonding may be the ideal restoration treatment you’ve been looking for. At Eastside Family Dental in Scarborough, we’ve seen this cosmetic procedure update the look of our patients’ smiles time and time again.

Along with correcting the issues mentioned above, bonding can fill in unwanted gaps and improve the look of cosmetic cracks, often with one treatment. It’s also affordable, long-lasting, and is minimally invasive since it requires the removal of a very small amount of enamel for proper adhesion. Additionally, patients can also choose to have multiple teeth bonded in one visit to our office. An innovative application of this technique is bonding for receding gums, which helps to protect the roots of the teeth that have become exposed due to gum recession.

What’s involved with the bonding process?

Depending on the tooth (or teeth) you’re interested in having bonded, it can take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete treatment. After we select the shade of bonding material that closely matches the color of your natural tooth, we’ll use a mild solution that will gently etch the area and help the bonding material permanently adhere. Next, after the material is carefully shaped to complement your smile, we’ll use a special curing light to harden it. We’ll finish by smoothing and polishing the area to ensure that it looks great. This process is known as composite bonding, a popular cosmetic dental technique that can instantly transform the appearance of your teeth.

Who is a candidate for dental bonding?

As is the case with every treatment, it’s important to have a thorough assessment performed before determining if cosmetic bonding is right for you. During this assessment, the focus will not only be on the aesthetics but also on the overall health of your teeth and gums to ensure that teeth bonding is a suitable option.

We’ll examine your teeth and gums and make recommendations about whether this treatment might benefit your smile.
