Do you have a cracked, decayed or discoloured tooth? The dentists at Kaplan Dental Clinic in West Toronto are here to help repair the functionality and look of your tooth with bonding.
What is bonding?
If your teeth are decayed, chipped, fractured or have been affected by discolouration, bonding may be an option for you. Bonding can enhance the colour of your smile and can also be used to fix the shape of your teeth and close the spaces between the teeth.
Bonding is a dental procedure that involves the application of a tooth coloured material (resin) to the tooth. This durable plastic resin is applied to the tooth and then harden with a special UV light which results in it “bonding” to the tooth.
The resin material is made to match the natural colour of the individual's tooth, making it more aesthetically pleasing.
When Should Bonding be Considered?
The following are some conditions for which bonding can be used to fix the appearance and functionality of the tooth:
- To repair decayed teeth and fill cavities
- To repair a chipped tooth
- To repair a cracked tooth
- To enhance the appearance of discoloured teeth
- To close the gaps between teeth
- To lengthen the teeth
