Dental Bonding in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Woman with beautiful smile looking over shoulderWhen a tooth has a chip in it, has a fracture line, or is heavily stained, a resin compound can be bonded to it that will repair the tooth or teeth, making it fit once more with the rest of your mouth.

Bonding can also be used to fill your teeth out and in doing so eliminate any gaps that may exist between them. The compound is tinted to be a perfect match with the rest of your teeth so that no one will know you have had anything done. The process at Niagara-on-the-Lake Dental is quick to perform and more cost-efficient than dental caps. The method of dental bonding is similar to receiving a composite filling.

Our Process

Surface Texturing

First, your tooth is given a slightly textured surface through the careful application of a mild chemical solution. The rough surface will help ensure a strong bond between the resin and your tooth’s enamel. This not only helps prolong the life of your dental bond but also prevents bacterial buildup leading to decay between the resin and the enamel.

Resin Preparation

Next, Dr. Clark prepares the resin, mixing the composite with tinting compounds to achieve the desired shade and ensure the new work matches your natural teeth.

Resin Application

The composite resin is then applied to your teeth or tooth in layers, with each application being exposed to a very bright light which activates the hardeners and makes sure that the final surface is completely solid (cured).

Shaping and Polishing

Finally, the bonded surface is shaped and polished by Dr. Clark to make sure that the finished composite resin looks great, feels comfortable and matches the look of the surrounding teeth.

Furthermore, should children require the use of dental bonding, the bonded material can be modified as the child grows to ensure that it grows along with the child’s teeth.
