At our Kelowna dental clinic, we often use dental bonding to alter the colour, shape, and symmetry of your teeth.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment where your dentist bonds a tooth-coloured material to a chipped or discoloured tooth by sculpting, hardening and then polishing it to match your surrounding natural teeth.Request Appointment
Uses For Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a relatively non-invasive procedure most often used to repair discoloured or chipped teeth.
It is also often used to close gaps between teeth, to make teeth appear longer, or to change their shape or colour.
The finished tooth often looks quite natural and smooth and is can be closely matched to the surrounding teeth.
The Bonding Process
Dental bonding typically requires only one visit to your dentist's office. The process can usually be completed in 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.
Your dentist will apply composite resin to your tooth in layers and use a high intensity curing light to harden each layer. After the last layer of composite resin is hardened, your dentist will shape and polish it to form your new tooth.
