Bonding is a cosmetic procedure offered by the dentist at Hog's Back Dental Centre as a way to change the appearance of your smile.
How does the bonding procedure work?
During the bonding procedure, a resin is applied to the tooth, using a high-intensity light.
Once the resin is applied, the bonded resin is sculpted to your teeth and polished. This procedure makes the teeth look natural.
The bonding procedure takes about 30 - 60 minutes per tooth to complete.
When bonding is used:
- Fill cavities and restore decayed teeth
- Fix discoloration and change a tooth’s shape
- Repair chips or cracks and close gaps between teeth
- Protect the tooth root from exposure from a receding gum line.
