If you’ve chipped, fractured, or discoloured teeth, aesthetic dental bonding is an easy and affordable way to restore your smile. Bonding is the application of tooth-coloured composite resin using a high intensity curing light. It’s a relatively inexpensive way to make minor aesthetic repairs to your teeth. The tooth-coloured composite resin used for bonding can be shaped and polished to match the appearance of your surrounding teeth.
What happens during treatment?
At Ocean Dental we’ll use a combination of analogue and digital shade guides to select an appropriate composite resin colour to match your teeth. We create an individual shade map for your teeth. Many patients take this opportunity to whiten their teeth before bonding so please ask one of the team for more details and we’ll schedule this in.
After the surface has been prepared, we’ll place the composite resin on your tooth. The material can be shaped and sculpted to achieve the best result. Next, we’ll use a special light to harden the resin before polishing it to a smooth finish.
