Same Day Dental Bonding
Do you have a small chip or gap in your tooth? You may want to ask our Mulgrave dentists about an easy cosmetic procedure known as dental bonding.
Bonding uses tooth-coloured filling material (composite) to cover minor blemishes or flaws, such as:
- Exposed root surfaces
- Pitted or misshaped enamel
- Minor chips
- Small gaps between teeth
The procedure is simple, fast, and essentially pain free. In most cases when you walk into our office with an issue, we can perform the procedure on the same day.
No Numbing Needed
Bonding is a procedure that requires little tooth preparation. As such, it’s quite comfortable to complete. Rarely is any local anaesthetic even needed. We’ll gently roughen the surface of your tooth to help the bonding agent adhere, but that’s it!
Matched to Your Tooth
Dental composite comes in a variety of different colours, making it easy for our Mulgrave dentists to select the one that matches your unique enamel. That way when we bond over a specific area, your tooth looks consistent across the entire surface. No one other than the team at Purity Dental should be able to tell that there’s something bonded to your tooth.
Our Mulgrave dentist shapes the composite to your tooth and immediately cures it with a bright light, bonding it to the enamel. The procedure only takes a matter of minutes to complete (it takes longer to set up than it does to perform the actual treatment!)
A Fast Fix
At Purity Dental we use composite bonding for minor to moderate aesthetic issues. It’s a great alternative to veneers or crowns, when the tooth damage isn’t very bad. Yet it’s effective enough to make a huge impact in the overall appearance of your smile.
