Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a very common cosmetic dental technique and has been used for many years. By using the correct amount and colour of a composite resin (tooth coloured restorative material) the dentist is able to cover any flaws and imperfections in your smile.

Dental bonding can improve you smile in a single painless visit to the dentist (normally just a few hours) and can last for up to 7 years.

Dental bonding

Bonding is used for various dental problems:

  • White fillings.

  • Repairing broken and chipped teeth.

  • Closing gaps.

  • Reshaping teeth.

  • Re-colouring your smile: Eliminating stains.


The procedure: Dental bonding:

  • First a mild etching solution is applied to the teeth being treated to ‘roughen’ up the surface to help the resin bond effectively.

  • The resin (plastic material) is then placed on the relevant teeth and a high intensity light is used to harden the plastic.

  • Once enough layers of resin have been applied to the tooth it is reshaped and finely polished to give the tooth the desired appearance.


Factors affecting the price: Dental bonding:

  • Prices vary from dentist to dentist.

  • The extent of the bonding required.

  • The amount of teeth that need treating.
