Composite Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding for Cracked and Chipped Teeth

At Estrabillo Dental Group, we can help restore confidence in your smile. If you have stained, chipped, cracked or damaged teeth, bonding may be the right solution for you. It is often used to improve the appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile. Using a high intensity light we apply either a plastic or resin and bond it to the existing tooth. Unlike veneers or crowns, composite bonding removes little, if any, of the original tooth. If you choose Estrabillo Dental Group, you are getting dental bonding in Ancaster for chipped teeth with a holistic approach. This means we focus on your oral and overall health to get the best result.

Cosmetic bonding is usually recommended for the following:

  • Fixing or repairing chipped or cracked teeth

  • Reducing unsightly gaps or spaces between teeth

  • Hiding discolouration or faded areas on the tooth’s surface

Composite bonding has many advantages:

  • It is a quick procedure, typically an hour or less for treatment time

  • It does not reduce the tooth’s original structure and is relatively inexpensive

  • Composite resins come in many different shades and provide better matching of shades to the natural colour of your teeth

Composite bonds, however, are not as durable and long-lasting as veneers and crowns and may need to be re-touched or replaced in the future. Composite bonds stain more easily and therefore require proper care and regular cleaning. In order to ensure the longest possible duration of the bonding, composites should be brushed and flossed daily. Common staining elements include coffee, tea, tobacco, foods and candy.
