What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a technique used by dental professionals to help conceal certain dental flaws and provide a more beautiful smile. Perfect for chipped or broken teeth, the resin can be colour-matched to the exact shade of the tooth which renders the resin virtually invisible! The resin is applied to the area and once you and your dentist are satisfied with the placement, it will then be hardened for a long-term solution.

At Ironside Advanced Dental in Sydney, we are dedicated to helping our patients achieve their perfect smiles.

When is dental bonding required?

Bonding can be used as an alternative to veneers to restore teeth that are damaged and enhance the way your smile looks. Bonding can be used for teeth that have been affected by:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Discolouration

Bonding can significantly improve the appearance of a tooth and can usually be done in a single office visit. We are able to effectively shape and contour your teeth with our high quality bonding resin for superior results. Your bonded tooth should last from 3 to 5 years prior to needing repair.

The process of dental bonding

The process of this treatment is actually quite simple! Best of all, it is minimally invasive and involves minimal preparation of your natural tooth! The dental bonding process includes:

  • The tooth is first prepared for bonding by lightly etching the surface
  • The tooth is then coated with a bonding liquid
  • Once the liquid has set, a plastic resin is applied sculptured it into the desired shape

When the resin has set, it is trimmed and polished to a natural appearance
