Resin Bonding

Resin Bonding is a method of restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements, changing the colour of teeth, closing gaps, fixing chips, correcting crooked teeth or reshaping teeth with a pliable material, all in ONE appointment .

How It's Done:

Resin is available in an assortment of colours. The first part of the treatment involves you, in selecting what colour of resin you would like to have. Generally not one but several colours are applied to the teeth in order to give a more realistic look.

Next, a thin coating of adhesive is applied on the front surface of the teeth. The resin material is then applied and sculpted and shaped to provide an attractive, natural-looking result. A high-intensity light then hardens the plastic, and the surface is finely polished.

After Treatment Expectations:

Since bonding involves little or no tooth removal, there should be little or no sensitivity or opportunity for infection. And once the tooth surface has been bonded correctly, no decay can attack the tooth under the bonded resin.

Complications:

There are no known complications with bonding.

Am I a Candidate?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of a tooth or teeth due to chipping, staining, gaps or shaping, you may be a candidate for bonding. You will need a smile assessment to ascertain whether this procedure is suitable for you.
