Cosmetic Bonding at New Gisborne, Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek

Cosmetic bonding can quickly and efficiently repair a tooth and restore it to its natural colour and shape. This dental procedure is an ideal solution for those who want a cost-effective way to fix a tooth, and you can even upgrade to a porcelain veneer later on, if you choose. Our team at New Gisborne Dental House has the skills to create and apply cosmetic bonding for your dental concerns.

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment in which the dentist applies a composite resin onto the tooth, then shapes it to repair and fix the tooth to restore its look and function. It is a patient favourite since it is a lesser invasive treatment than other, more permanent cosmetic dental treatments.

Cosmetic bonding is usually completed in just one dentist visit. The method is efficient and effective, which is why many patients use this option as their first choice to repair or improve the shape of teeth. Along with improving the appearance, bonding may also help protect teeth from further damage. The following are dental issues that can be repaired with cosmetic bonding:

Quickly repair a chipped tooth

Restore the colour of a stained or discoloured tooth

Build up a tooth that has been worn down due to bruxism (teeth grinding)

Repair a fractured tooth

Replace silver or amalgam fillings

Lengthen short teeth

Fill small gaps between teeth

How it’s Done

After a dental checkup and evaluation, our dentists will be able to determine if cosmetic bonding is an option for you. A complete set of x-rays will help us determine if you have any hidden dental problems that need to be addressed. Once we determine you are a candidate for bonding, your dentist will explain the process of cosmetic bonding so you know what to expect next. In general, the following steps are common for those who get dental bonding:
Once the exam is complete and it is determined that bonding is right for your tooth, a shade guide will be used to find the right colour of the resin to match your teeth
If you are receiving bonding to fill a cavity, an anesthetic will be applied, the cavity will be cleaned, and then the bonding will be applied and shaped
If the cosmetic bonding is for any other purpose, the dentist will simply abrade the tooth surface to ensure the bonding holds
The tooth is coated with a conditioning liquid
Dental resin or composite is applied, shaped and then smoothed
A laser well be used to harden the bonding
Your dentist may further shape the tooth, so it is comfortable and natural-looking
Number 8
The bonded tooth will be polished to match your other teeth

Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Bonding?

Dental House Group_Candidate for Bonding
We understand that cosmetic bonding is a popular dental solution for many of our patients, but it may not be ideal for everyone. The best candidates for this treatment are patients with healthy teeth, yet only one or two teeth need protection or repair. It may be ideal as a transitional treatment for those who are deciding if they want a dental crown or bridge in the future.

While dental bonding is a low-stress option for some issues, the following dental problems may require other treatments:

\
Wide gaps between teeth
\
A series of crooked teeth
\
Missing teeth
\
When all teeth need whitening
If you are not a candidate for cosmetic bonding, our skilled team of dentists will do a thorough exam and work with you to find the best dental solution for your needs.

Caring for Your New Teeth

Unlike porcelain veneers, bonding resin is susceptible to stains, just like your natural teeth. Taking care of them is like caring for your own teeth with regular oral hygiene and dental visits. Avoiding or cutting back food and beverages that stain will help keep all your teeth from discolouration, and your dentist will provide customised care instructions for your new bonding. The following are some regular oral maintenance tips that anyone can benefit from:
N
Brush at least twice each day and floss according to your dentist’s instructions
N
Rinse with any prescribed or recommended mouthwash
N
Do not bite on hard objects such as pens and pencils
N
Do not eat ice, as this could chip bonding material and your natural teeth
N
Maintain regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings
N
Avoid staining foods and beverages for at least 48 hours after bonding is applied
