A perfect smile is more attainable than you might think, even when dealing with minor imperfections. At Waterloo Dental Clinic, we offer dental bonding as an affordable, quick, and effective solution to enhance your smile. Dr. Ash and his team are skilled at addressing various aesthetic concerns, from small chips and cracks to minor discoloration, helping to restore the natural beauty of your teeth.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is applied to the teeth and hardened with a special light. This effectively “bonds” the material to the teeth, allowing Dr. Ash to alter the shape, size, and color of your teeth, and correct minor imperfections.
How Dental Bonding Can Help
Dental bonding is a versatile treatment that can provide quick and impressive improvements to your smile. Whether you’re dealing with minor chips and cracks, improperly shaped teeth, a single discolored tooth, or small gaps between your teeth, dental bonding can effectively address these concerns.
Dental bonding is an excellent choice for addressing various dental issues, including:
Minor Chips and Cracks: Even small chips and cracks can detract from your smile. Dental bonding seamlessly repairs these imperfections.
Improperly Shaped Teeth: If a tooth is misshapen or too short, bonding can help reshape and resize it for a more uniform appearance.
Discoloration: For a single discolored tooth, dental bonding can be a quick and cost-effective solution to match the color with the rest of your teeth.
Small Gaps Between Teeth: Dental bonding can effectively close small gaps between teeth, creating a more evenly spaced smile.
During the dental bonding process, Dr. Ash will first select a resin that closely matches the color of your natural teeth. He will then apply this resin to the prepared tooth, meticulously sculpting it to achieve the desired shape and size. Once the resin has been shaped, it will be hardened with a special curing light. Finally, Dr. Ash will polish the bonded area to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth.
