Bonding

Tooth bonding is the application of a tooth-coloured resin. Using adhesives and a high-intensity curing-light the process takes its name from the materials which are used and then bonded to the tooth.

Typically bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of discoloured or chipped teeth. Bonding can also be used to close spaces between teeth, make teeth look longer or change the shape and colour of teeth. Bonding can be used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, and to protect a portion of the tooth’s root if it has been exposed when gums recede. The benefit of these techniques is the conservative nature of the tooth preparation. It is essentially an “additive” treatment where natural tooth-structure is maintained and materials are added or bonded to it.
