Dental bonding is often used to fill spaces, repair chips, gaps between teeth, or change the shape of teeth. The composite material is bonded to the tooth and polished to ensure optimal function and appearance.

Bonding is very useful for correcting irregularities but is generally considered less durable than veneers.

It involves a small shell of tooth-coloured filling material that covers the front surface of the tooth.

The material is closely matched to the colour of your teeth, yet it can become stained and is not as strong as veneers.

Advantages of Dental Bonding

  • Great result when treating small defect.
  • Generally, only requires one visit
  • Bonding is less expensive than porcelain veneers
  • Excellent colour match

Bonding is a conservative procedure, it is done to repair small chip or irregularities or as an interim measure before veneer, regardless of the reasoning why you are having bonding at MVDC, we strive for excellence and use the best material available so that we can get the result you desire.

Dental Bonding FAQ’s

Dental bonding is a procedure that can repair a damaged, cracked, or chipped teeth.

A composite resin is matched to the colour of your tooth and is applied to the surface of the tooth filling in any cracks in the tooth.

Once that is done an ultraviolet light is used on the tooth to harden the composite resin.

Your dentist will shape the resin on your tooth to mimic your tooth structure so that it feels normal in your mouth and when chewing.

The material “bonds” to the existing tooth which is where the term dental bonding comes from.

Tooth bonding can last up to 10 years if proper oral care & dental hygiene is maintained. That includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing regularly, and going to routine dental cleanings and check-ups, every 6 months, together with excellent diet.

This will improve the longevity of your tooth bonding.

However, if you do not keep up with these oral hygiene habits then the life of your tooth bonding can decrease and not last that long. It is also possible that it lasts longer as well.

It all comes down to how well you blook after your teeth.

Dental bonding is generally regarded as safe for your teeth. However, all medical procedures carry risks. Yet, there are not any major risks that are associated with bonding on your teeth.

The only thing to keep in mind is that the composite resin material is not as strong as your own natural teeth, therefore it is possible for the bonding to be chipped if you are eating particularly hard food.

Overall, bonding is a safe and effective option for repairing any cracked or chipped teeth

The short answer is yes you can remove bonding from teeth.

The procedure can be reversed if needed as the composite resin is simply added onto your existing tooth.

No original enamel or tooth surface is removed meaning that bonding can be taken out of your tooth without removing any of your natural tooth surface. This removal procedure can be done in a single visit in most cases at your local dentist.

This can pose a challenge for the future if you plan on getting your teeth whitened after a dental bonding procedure.

The resin material itself will not respond to whitening the same as your natural teeth.

Therefore, you can continue with whitening procedures and see results from your natural teeth but not from those areas that have composite resin applied.

It is recommended that you get your teeth whitened prior to a dental bonding procedure.

The women at this practice are phenomenal. I have had fear of the dentist my entire life due to a traumatic experience as a four year old. I finally bit the bullet last month and went to see Karen the hygienist and she made me feel so comforted. Then I met Erika the dentist and she was wonderful also. Yesterday I had restorative work done and for the first time in my life I wasn’t nervous about going to the dentist. I was so relaxed the entire time. Erika has such a calming, relaxed and professional presence. She continually asked if I was ok through each process and I honestly can’t thank her and her team enough. They’ve changed my life in the sense where I no longer feel scared. I actually can’t wait to go back and have my routinely hygiene appointment. WHAT?! ????

If you’re looking for a new dentist, I can’t recommend this one enough. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a dentist and as such I wasn’t very confident finding somewhere new. However the team here have been absolutely incredible. Kind and happy to explain the process, including prices and health fund contributions. Excellent dental facilities and a comfortable waiting room. I’ve seen they also have online booking options, which seems very convenient. Thank you to all the team today for making my first appointment in a long time an enjoyable one.
