Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment, designed to repair and improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile.

  • Tooth Bonding in Mount Lawley

    Tooth bonding enhances a smile by masking minor dental flaws, such as:

  • Is Tooth Bonding right for me?

    Tooth bonding is a cosmetic treatment that can effectively treat both functional and aesthetic dental concerns, however, it does have limitations.

    Like veneers, tooth bonding may not be suitable if you suffer from tooth decay, gum disease or other damage. Instead, your dentist might recommend a crown, bridge or dental implant.

    One benefit of tooth bonding is that it is far more affordable than other cosmetic dental treatments. Since composite bonding can be done in a single visit, it's also a faster way to repair multiple teeth.

    Is Tooth Bonding right for me?
  • Tooth Bonding Process

    Tooth bonding does not require anaesthesia, unless you require a large filling, inlay or onlay during your dental appointment. A simple and straightforward cosmetic procedure, the process involves:

    • Your dentist gently preparing your tooth
    • Your dentist roughens the tooth surface with a special gel to help composite adhere to the tooth
    • Composire resin is applied and hardened using a curing light
    • Your tooth is shaped to make the new surface blend in as naturally as possible
    • Your tooth is polished

  • What Damages Bonded Teeth?

    Composite typically lasts between 4 and 8 years, depending on where the tooth has been bonded and the type of food you usually eat.

    Composite isn't as strong as your natural teeth, and is prone to chipping, so you might want to avoid directly biting into hard foods.

    Here’s what can cause damage to a bonded tooth:

    • Eating hard and sticky food
    • Chewing on pens or biting your fingernails
    • Drinking a lot of coffee or red wine can stain teeth
    • Smoking can stain teeth
    • Teeth grinding and TMJD

    What Damages Bonded Teeth?
  • Looking after bonded teeth

    If you think you regularly grind your teeth, clench your jaw or play contact sports, make sure to ask us about a custom mouthguard so we can protect your newly bonded teeth from possible chipping or breakage.

    Bonded teeth don't require any special care at home, just follow your usual brushing and flossing routine and maintain a good level of oral hygiene and oral health overall.

Frequently asked questions

Tooth bonding and composite veneers both involve using composite resin material to restore the look of teeth.Tooth bonding is used to make minor changes, while veneers are used for larger cosmetic restorations.

Veneers can also be made out of porcelain, a natural tooth-like material regarded for its translucent quality. Porcelain veneers are designed in a dental laboratory rather than being directly bonded onto teeth.

Composite bonding can last between 4 and 8 years, depending on where the tooth has been bonded, the amount of pressure it’s under and the type of food you consume.

You can help your restorative dental treatment to last longer by avoiding foods that can damage or stain teeth.

Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that aims to mask minor dental flaws using a white-coloured composite resin material that gets bonded and shaped directly onto the tooth. It’s a similar treatment to getting a filling placed for sealing small gaps in teeth, but looks at both the functionality and aesthetics of a smile.
