Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin on your teeth to improve your smile. Here at Chapel Gate Dental, we use this technique to improve the appearance of chipped, cracked, broken and stained teeth. We also use this procedure to fill spaces between teeth and to change their shape and colour. Typically, bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings and to protect the root of the tooth when gums recede.
What Are Our Veneers Made Up Of?
Dental bonding, also known as composite veneers or composite resin veneers, is made from white composite materials that can be bonded to your teeth to mask any natural flaws. They mask flaws by either re-shaping your teeth or changing the shade of your teeth. The composite veneer comes in different shades of white that can match seamlessly and exactly to the shade of your teeth.
Dental Bonding Procedures:
One of the best things about dental bonding is that it is usually a quick and painless procedure, requiring just one appointment with very little to no preparation of the teeth. Unless there is decay or an old restoration present, we never use anesthesia for dental bonding. During your visit,
