Dental bonding is a process of application and hardening of tooth-coloured material to protect and/or repair damaged teeth.
Dental bonding may be suitable for you in the following cases:
This treatment is especially useful if you have not been able to achieve a level of whitening with a whitening treatment.
Bonding is suitable for treating minor decay in the front teeth as it creates a seamless blend with the neighbouring teeth. It can also be used to protect parts of a tooth root that have been exposed due to gum recession.
Minor chips or fractures
Fixing small cracks is important to prevent the damage from spreading and to improve the look of your smile.
Gaps between teeth
Dental bonding is also used to close gaps between your teeth.
Since the material used in dental bonding is individually shaped to each tooth; teeth can be also reshaped.
Small or large teeth
The size of the teeth can be corrected with dental bonding reshaping.

The Dental Bonding Procedure
Dental bonding usually takes about 30 minutes for each tooth. Results are visible after three easy steps.
Qualified candidates go through the following procedures:
Your teeth will be cleaned to reveal the natural tooth colour. Your Forster dentist will choose a shade of material that matches your natural tooth shade.
To make the material bond well, the surfaces of the tooth are coarsened. A conditioning liquid is applied on the surfaces of the tooth to be treated. The resin is then applied, shaped, and smoothened into the desired result.
To harden the bonded material, a special curing light is focused on the tooth for about 30 seconds.
Once the material is hard, your Forster dentist will evaluate the result and may trim the tooth to perfect it.
