Dental bonding is a dental treatment used to repair chipped, decayed, fractured, or discolored teeth. Bonding is achieved using tooth colored composite resin and the entire procedure can be performed in office typically in less than one hour. Dr. Yao and the staff at Wyndam Manor Dental Care use the latest dental technology to perform procedures like dental bonding to ensure your treatment is as easy and stress-free as possible.
Dental bonding is one of the simplest and most affordable cosmetic dental procedures available. The composite resin material used in dental bonding can be shaped and polished to match the patient’s surrounding natural teeth. Bonding is most commonly used to repair chipped or discolored teeth, but it can also be used to close in gaps, elongate or change the shape of a tooth. In some cases, dental bonding is used to protect portions of a tooth’s root that are exposed due to gum recession.There is no preparation required for dental bonding, nor is anesthesia typically necessary. However, dental sedation is available for patients who feel anxious about undergoing any dental procedure.
Most dental bonding procedures take 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Patients will also receive education on properly caring for their teeth after the procedure. Typically, patients are advised to avoid eating or drinking foods that can stain teeth for at least 48 hours after the procedure, in addition to their normal oral hygiene routine.
