Cosmetic Bonding at New Gisborne,

Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek

 
A chipped or discoloured tooth can affect the appearance of your smile. While these issues can be fixed by cosmetic dentistry, sometimes these procedures can be costly and extensive. If you want results without the price tag or time commitment, cosmetic bonding just might be your answer.

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding in Melbourne is a dental procedure used to fix the appearance of teeth. It is easier and less invasive than other aesthetic cosmetic procedures and often the least expensive way to improve your smile. 

In cosmetic bonding, our dental professionals will apply a durable plastic material called resin that is bonded to the tooth to restore, and in some cases improve the appearance of your teeth and restore your smile.

Cosmetic bonding is a leading dentistry solution to create a beautiful smile and can even be done in just one visit, unlike other procedures that may take weeks to complete. This efficient method helps reduce the cost and is less invasive than other cosmetic procedures and can be used to fix a number of dental issues, such as:

Fix chipped teeth

Improve misshaped teeth

Close gaps between teeth

Repair broken or fractured teeth

Lengthen teeth that appear too short

Protect exposed tooth root if gums recede

Repair and restore the appearance of worn teeth

An alternative to traditional amalgam or silver fillings

Improve the appearance of stained or discoloured teeth

Who is a Candidate for Cosmetic Bonding?

 
Cosmetic bonding is used to improve the appearance of teeth and can be used to repair broken teeth. It is also used by some as an alternative to dental veneers or implants, but it may not be for everyone. This procedure is not ideal to fix large areas of misshapen or missing teeth and not used to whiten all of your teeth.

Cosmetic bonding is an ideal procedure for those with otherwise healthy teeth when only one or a couple of teeth need repair or improvement, and can be easily shaped and coloured to fit in with the rest of your teeth. While mainly used for adult patients, it can sometimes be a viable and cost-effective way to help improve the appearance of children’s teeth while waiting for their adult teeth to come in. At New Gisborne Dental House, our experienced professionals will do a full evaluation and exam to see if you are a candidate for cosmetic bonding.

The best way to determine if your situation will benefit from cosmetic bonding is to come in for an examination or consultation. Our gentle and caring professionals will determine the best procedure for you and guide you through the process.

Cosmetic Bonding Procedure

 

The cosmetic bonding procedure is quite efficient and involves less time than most other cosmetic procedures. Once your dental examination is complete with x-rays and your evaluation, your dental professional will go over the entire procedure you can expect so there are no surprises. We want to ensure your visit is as comfortable and stress-free as possible, and we will be certain you are happy with your choice of dental procedures. 

And while each situation is different, there are general steps that are followed for most everyone who had bonding.

Cosmetic bonding is a basic procedure and usually requires no anesthetic. In fact, often no preparation is necessary, unless it is used as a filling. Here are the basic steps you can expect when visiting us for your cosmetic bonding procedure:

If your bonding is to fill a decayed tooth, then we may apply an anesthetic right before the procedure

First, we will use a shade guide to determine the correct resin colour for your teeth

 Your dentist will then etch, or abrade the surface of your tooth so the bonding holds

Your tooth is then coated with a conditioning liquid

The dental resin is then applied, shaped and smoothed

Your new bonding will be hardened with a light or laser treatment

Once hardened, your dentist may shape it more, if necessary, to give you the perfect fit

The bonding will then be polished until the sheen matches your other teeth

After-Care

 
Just like your regular teeth, those that have cosmetic bonding require maintenance and care. But it is important to not indulge in tea, coffee, smoking or other things that can stain your new tooth for the first 48 hours after your procedure. Aside from that, your regular maintenance may include the following:

Brush daily with a fluoride toothpaste
Schedule regular cleaning and checkups with your dentist
Floss and rinse with mouthwash according to your dental hygienist’s instructions
Do not eat ice, chew your nails or bite anything else hard as it can chip the bonding material
Call your dentist if you feel sharp edges on your bonding or if it feels “wrong” when you bite down
Your dental professional will provide a personalised protocol for your cosmetic bonding procedure. And follow up is important, because regular dental visits and proper care can help your bonding last for up to a decade or more!
