Discover Cosmetic Dental Bonding for a Chipped Tooth in Mississauga On Area

Our smiles help define us and help us make good impressions. Unfortunately, chipped teeth can cause embarrassment or make us hide our smiles. Located in Mississauga, ON, Dr. Rina Kotecha of Dentistry on 10 offers cosmetic dental bonding to improve or enhance the smile. Bonding restores or corrects imperfections in the teeth. It is a simple office procedure which uses a composite resin material on the tooth’s surface to correct the shape. 

What to do for a chipped tooth

Dental bonding involves using a tooth-colored material to address dental imperfections. The resin blends with the natural tooth and has the consistency of modeling clay. When it is applied to the tooth, it can be formed into the necessary shape.

Before the resin is applied, the tooth is etched with a conditioning liquid. This roughens the tooth so the bonding material adheres better. The resin material is applied to the chipped tooth, sculpted into shape, and then hardened using a special light. The process bonds the material to the tooth creating a sturdy, complete smile. Cosmetic bonding is a durable, economical option for small dental imperfections.

Cosmetic bonding may be used to correct the following issues:

  • Gaps or spacing issues between teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Exposed roots if the gums recede

Benefits of dental bonding

When it comes to addressing small imperfections, bonding is an effective, efficient procedure. Advantages of this procedure include the following:

  • Cost-effective – Compared to cosmetic alternatives, dental bonding is often less expensive.
  • Natural-looking results – The resin material is durable and long-lasting. It is sculpted to blend with the adjacent teeth creating a natural-looking result.
  • Quick – Usually only one appointment is necessary. The bonding process is started and completed in a single dental appointment.
  • Simple – Anesthesia is generally unnecessary for bonding procedures.
  • Safe – Bonding requires less of the natural tooth to be shaped or treated ahead of time. The integrity of the tooth remains intact.
