Cosmetic bonding is a restorative surgery that uses a plastic resin to repair broken teeth, gaps, and discoloured teeth. The procedure requires the placement of resin composites in the back and front teeth, to restore teeth affected by decay, improve the appearance of yellowing teeth and can even be used to reshape the teeth.
A thin coat of resin is placed into etchings on the surface of your tooth, more layers of this resin are then added. Your dentist will then place a bonding material onto your teeth can begin to colour, shape and sculpt your teeth until they are happy with the result.. High-intensity light will then be used to harden the plastic, and your newly protected teeth will be finely polished.
The main benefit of cosmetic bonding is it’s advantage over silver fillings. As silver does not stick to the teeth, healthy tooth structure must be removed in order to keep a silver filling in place. Composites however, allow for the removal of the decayed area of the tooth only. Composite resin bonding are much less likely to cause cracks in your tooth as they expand with the teeth. Bonding provides support for the teeth as the bond directly onto their surface. Finally, composites can be used to fill in cracks, chips and gaps and can be colour matched to perfection for discreet results.
