Cosmetic Dental Bonding Erin Mills - Onyx Dental

When a smile has aesthetic damage, dental bonding in Erin Mills can be incredibly effective.

Gaps between teeth can be filled, stains and discolorations removed, and your smile can be enhanced to better match the colour, translucency, and texture of your teeth. This is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can greatly increase your confidence.

Our dentists will match the colour of your natural teeth before applying tooth-coloured composite resin to the tooth enamel. A realistically natural appearance is achieved by shaping, contouring, and polishing the bonding material after it has been set with a curing lamp.

How Can Dental Bonding Help?

Dental bonding can be used to treat a number of different problems, including:
  • Tooth decay. Surface decay can be hidden with dental bonding, after necessary treatment of course.
  • Cracked or chipped teeth. Bonding could be the answer to covering up cracks and chips in your teeth.
  • Discoloured teeth. Camouflage discolouration with dental bonding, using a shade that best suits your other teeth.
  • Spaces between teeth. Make spaces appear smaller.
  • Misshapen teeth. Dentists can use dental bonding to ‘sculpt’ attractive teeth.
  • Exposed roots from gum recession. Protect roots by building teeth up when gum recession has occurred.
When your teeth are not what they used to be, it can have profound effects on how you chew and even how you breathe. Tooth problems can even lead to seemingly unrelated issues such as neck problems or headaches.

Is Composite Resin Expensive?

In general, dental bonding in Erin Mills costs about $300 to $600 out of pocket. The process is usually covered by insurance so you may pay anywhere from $0-$120 depending on what type of bonding you need to have done.

Dental bonding is an excellent way to fill any small gaps or holes in your teeth. The cost will depend on several factors, including:
  • The number of teeth that will require teeth bonding
  • Whether you need X-rays or any additional services
  • The size of the area needs repair with teeth bonding
  • Which of the teeth needs bonding

Time Required To Complete Dental Bonding Procedure

The time required to complete dental bonding is minimal. The dentist will use x-rays to ensure that the teeth are healthy enough for the procedure. After the dentist has assessed the teeth, a thin layer of composite resin is placed on each tooth.

This layer is hardened with a special light and the dentist shapes and polishes the completed restoration to match the patient’s natural teeth. The entire procedure can take 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the amount of work involved. The procedure can be completed in one visit, though some dentists recommend several visits to accomplish multiple repairs. In most cases, patients do not need anesthetics.

Patients can return to normal activities the day of the procedure. The process is very quick – patients just need to show up to the appointment with clean teeth. It is usually recommended to schedule a cleaning ahead of time if you are coming up to your next biannual cleaning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bonding materials typically last between three and 10 years, according to the Cleveland Clinic. After this timeframe, your dental professional will need to take steps to either replace or maintain the affected areas.

The process for applying most dental bonds is completely painless since the dentist is usually only working on the surface of the tooth. You may only experience pain if your bond is used to repair a cavity.

In most instances, dental bonding can be replaced successfully. This means it is completely possible to whiten your teeth even if they have been bonded.
You don’t need to stop eating hard foods like nuts altogether, of course, but you should avoid chewing them with your front teeth if you have veneers or dental bonding. Over time, this could result in chipping and premature wear and tear to your dental prostheses.
Veneers are a popular treatment for tooth whitening because they can cover the front of your teeth and make them look like new. Bonding, on the other hand, is more cost effective and results are very similar to porcelain veneers. It will really depend on how much of your tooth will need to change and also how much you would like to invest into your smile.
