Chipped, worn and disfigured teeth can often be corrected with cosmetic bonding. Quite simply, tooth-coloured filling materials are adhered to the missing portion of the tooth or used to fill gaps or spaces. In some cases, cosmetic bonding can be used to hide or change the colour of the teeth.

Bonding is made from a tooth-coloured, putty-like composite material, as opposed to hard porcelain. And instead of being crafted in a laboratory, it is shaped to fit by the dentist, directly on the tooth, and set hard under a laser light.
Although not as long-lasting as porcelain, Cosmetic Bonding is the method of choice when an immediate result with minimal cost is required. It is very conservative, and as you can see, the results can be quite dramatic. In fact, many of our patients report that this simple and relatively inexpensive procedure has given them the confidence to smile for the first time in years!
