Bonding Works

Dental bonding is one of the most administered treatments in modern dental practices. It owes its popularity to its affordability and capacity to cover so many functional and cosmetic dental issues. What’s more, dental bonding is pretty risk-free and has few qualification requirements.

The dental bonding procedure is typically simple and can be completed in just one office appointment. Your Bolton dentist will assess your situation to determine if you are eligible for the procedure or if there is a better treatment for your problem.

Dental bonding can be used to fix small cosmetic issues such as slight cracks and chips, discoloration and misshapen teeth. Other less common uses include covering roots exposed by receding gums, filling unsightly gaps between teeth, and making short teeth look longer.

The dental bonding procedure

Teeth whitening

As stated above, your dentist in Bolton won’t ask for much-advanced preparation going into the appointment. The procedure is minimally invasive and doesn’t even require anesthesia in normal circumstances.

After consultation, the dentist will examine your mouth and try to find a shade of resin that matches your natural tooth color as closely as possible. Your tooth will then be roughened to prepare it for the bonding material before being smeared with a conditioning liquid.

Next, the bonding substance will be applied on the prepared tooth surface and smoothed to achieve the desired shape. A special light may be used to harden the material and strengthen its bonding with your tooth.

Finally, your dentist will use special tools to shape and polish the material to align it with the gloss of your other teeth.

The procedure may take between 30 minutes to one hour per tooth depending on the severity of your issue.

What are the advantages of dental bonding?

  • Dental bonding is versatile
  • It is cheaper than most of its substitutes
  • The procedure is minimally invasive
  • It doesn’t require the use of an anesthetic
  • The procedure is short
  • There is no downtime
  • It doesn’t require trimming off of the enamel

Care and maintenance

Your bonded tooth requires the same amount of care as your other teeth. A good oral hygiene routine is paramount in maintaining the quality of the bonding material for a long time. Brush twice daily, at the least, and floss occasionally to prevent the build-up of plaque and tartar on the surface of the repaired tooth. You should also visit your dentist occasionally for regular checkups and buttressing, if necessary.

Refrain from chewing pens, biting nails and opening bottles with your mouth as the bonding material can chip easily. See your dentist immediately you detect a problem with your bonding.

Dental bonding can come in handy if you are in urgent need of treatment for your slight cosmetic flaw but do not want to break the bank for it. The treatment has the capacity to fix a myriad of dental issues without exposing you to daunting side effects. For the best results ensure you follow the hygiene and maintenance instructions given to you by your dentist.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.
