Bonding

Bonding

Bonding, also known as bonded restoration, is a painless way to make minor repairs to teeth. In most cases, several teeth can be bonded in one dental visit. Bonding uses tooth-coloured material, called composite resin. Composite resin is put on the tooth, then shaped and hardened with light. The composite resin can be:

  • Matched to your teeth.
  • Shaped to look like the missing part of a chipped tooth.
  • Used to build up teeth and fill between them.
  • Used on a broken tooth to restore it to size.
  • Painted over a stained tooth to make it match the colour of your other teeth.
