Fewer things have more appeal than a bright-looking, uniform smile. This is precisely why Dr. Joly, our family dentist at Edmonton’s Joly Dental Care, offers patients dental bonding, which can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth, and can generally be completed through a single visit to our clinic.
Dental bonding consists of the use of tooth-coloured filling material applied to your teeth to improve their appearance. As a matter of fact, bonding fulfills a wide variety of aesthetic purposes, such as:
Before the dental bonding procedure begins, your dentist will select a composite resin colour that will most closely match the natural colour of your teeth, with the use of a shade guide. Once the colour is chosen, your teeth will be lightly etched and coated with a bonding liquid in order to enhance the grip of the bonding resin material.
Once this bonding liquid sets in, your dentist will apply the bonding resin to each tooth being worked on, and will be hardened with a blue curing light. As soon as it is set, the tooth is sculpted to the desired shape.
After proper hardening, your new tooth is ready for fine-tuning. Your dentist will finalize shaping, as well as smooth and polish your aesthetically enhanced tooth to a natural-looking appearance.
The entire process is actually quite simple, and can generally be carried out in a single visit to our Edmonton dental clinic. Additionally, since dental bonding is non-intrusive, essentially painless, and applied directly onto the tooth, there is usually no need for anaesthetics.
