Dental Bonding Sydney

Are you struggling with aesthetic dentistry issues, including a chip in the tooth, discolouration, and alignment or spacing problems? Then, dental bonding may be the ideal solution for you. At Macquarie Dental, we offer high-quality dental bonding in Sydney to address all your minor teeth issues.

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding (also known as composite bonding or teeth bonding) is a form of adhesive dentistry where our dentists will use tooth-coloured resin to correct crooked, broken, or wrongly spaced teeth. This resin is bonded with your natural tooth and will help improve your smile’s overall functionality and aesthetic appearance.

What Is Dental Bonding Used For?

There are many minor tooth problems that dental bonding can address, including:

  • Slight chips to the tooth
  • Slightly shorter teeth
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Slightly paced out teeth
  • Discoloured teeth

Before beginning any dental bonding session, our dentists will conduct a one-on-one consultation with you to ensure you know what to expect from the procedure. This session will detail everything you need to know, including maintenance and care tips. In addition, we’ll evaluate the extent of your dental health and determine whether you are the right candidate for the dental bonding procedure. For more information on what issues dental bonding can mend, contact us today.

Procedure

The dental bonding procedure can last anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour. During this time, the following steps will be taken:

  1. Check for suitability: Our dentists will determine whether the procedure is appropriate for your teeth. If you have more severe problems, they may suggest more advanced treatments instead of dental bonding.
  2. Choose your shade: Our dentist will choose the shade of material that best matches your current set of teeth to ensure the filling looks as natural as possible.
  3. Abrade the surface: After you choose the colour of your resin, our dentists will etch the surface of your teeth to make them rougher and ensure the adhesive bonds properly with your set. This part of the procedure is painless and will not require any anaesthetic. Your tooth will then be coated with a conditioning liquid which will help strengthen the bonding.
  4. Application of resin: Once your tooth is ready, our dentist will apply and mould resin into the proper shape of your tooth. A UV light is then used to harden the resin, which is then shaped, polished, and trimmed until it matches your smile perfectly.

Composite Bonding Benefits

There are many benefits associated with dental bonding as the procedure is an ideal way of restoring your teeth’ aesthetic appearance and functionality. If you are struggling with visual deficiencies in your teeth, then you may opt for dental bonding based on the following advantages:

  • Less expensive than other restorative treatments, including dental veneers and crowns
  • An efficient procedure that can be completed within 30-60 minutes per tooth
  • It does not usually require anaesthesia and is, therefore, a relatively easy procedure
  • Includes various oral health benefits and strengthens your original tooth
  • Dental bonding is ideal for mending minor dental cosmetic imperfections

FAQ’s

What is the difference between dental bonding and dental veneers?
While dental bonding and dental veneers serve the same purpose, they have a lot of differing traits. For example, dental bonding can correct minor aesthetic flaws, whereas porcelain veneers can correct almost all aesthetic issues. In addition, durability is another differing factor as dental bonding lasts for about 5 years, whereas porcelain veneers will last longer than 10. To find out which procedure is better suited for you, get in touch with us today.
How do you care for your teeth after dental bonding?
  • Reduce the intake of coffee, tea, red wine, or foods that may stain the resin material
  • Quit smoking to enhance overall dental and respiratory health
  • Avoid chewing or biting on hard objects
  • Continue to book routine 6 month check-ups with your dentist
How many sessions does dental bonding require?
Dental bonding generally only requires one visit and will take about 60 minutes per tooth to complete. Hence, it is a relatively quick and easy procedure that does not require any anaesthetic or invasive treatments.

You do not have to wait after your appointment to eat or drink. You may experience slight tooth sensitivity to heat or cold after teeth bonding; however, this will pass with time.
