Dental bonding is a versatile and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can enhance the appearance of your smile. At Facial Harmony Skin & Dental in Box Hill, our experienced dental team offers professional dental bonding services to address a variety of dental imperfections and help you achieve a more confident smile.


What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding, also known as composite bonding, involves applying a tooth-coloured composite resin material to the surface of your teeth to correct imperfections and improve their appearance. The resin is carefully sculpted and shaped to match the natural contours of your teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking result.


Benefits of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Cosmetic Enhancement: Dental bonding can effectively correct a wide range of cosmetic issues, including chipped, cracked, or stained teeth, as well as gaps between teeth and minor misalignments.
  • Minimally Invasive: Unlike other cosmetic dental procedures, such as veneers or crowns, dental bonding requires minimal removal of tooth structure, preserving the natural integrity of your teeth.
  • Quick and Convenient: Dental bonding can often be completed in a single visit to our clinic, making it a convenient option for busy individuals seeking immediate results.
  • Affordable: Compared to other cosmetic treatments, such as veneers or crowns, dental bonding is a more cost-effective option for enhancing the appearance of your smile.


Common Uses of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding can be used to address various cosmetic and functional concerns, including:

  • Repairing Chipped or Cracked Teeth: Bonding can restore the shape and structure of teeth that have been chipped or cracked due to trauma or wear.
  • Closing Gaps Between Teeth: Bonding can fill in spaces or gaps between teeth, improving the overall symmetry and alignment of your smile.
  • Concealing Stains and Discoloration: Bonding can cover surface stains and discolouration, giving your teeth a brighter and more uniform appearance.
  • Reshaping Irregular Teeth: Bonding can reshape and contour teeth that are uneven or irregularly shaped, creating a more harmonious and attractive smile.


The Dental Bonding Process

Consultation and Treatment Planning

During your initial consultation at Facial Harmony Skin & Dental, our experienced dentists will examine your teeth and discuss your goals and expectations for dental bonding. We will explain the bonding process in detail and answer any questions you may have.

Bonding Procedure

The dental bonding procedure typically takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth, depending on the extent of the treatment. Our dental team will carefully select a shade of composite resin that matches your natural teeth for optimal aesthetics.

The tooth surface will be roughened slightly to help the bonding material adhere securely. The composite resin will then be applied to the tooth and shaped to achieve the desired result. A special light will be used to harden the resin, and any final adjustments will be made to ensure a comfortable fit and natural appearance.

Final Polishing and Finishing

Once the bonding material has been sculpted and shaped to perfection, our dental team will polish the surface to smooth out any rough edges and create a natural-looking shine. The bonded tooth will blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your smile.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Dental bonding is a durable and long-lasting solution for improving the appearance of your smile. With proper care and maintenance, your bonded teeth can last for several years. To prolong the lifespan of your bonding, it’s important to:

  1. Practice good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing regularly.
  2. Avoid biting on hard objects or using your teeth as tools to prevent damage to the bonding material.
  3. Attend regular dental check-ups and cleanings to ensure the health and longevity of your bonded teeth.
