Gaps in your teeth are like fighting friends who’re in the same room. They’re standing close together, but not quite close enough to touch. Supreme Dental Care specialises in bridging the gap between these lifelong friends and finally bringing them back together. Experience the beauty of closeness with our dental bonding procedure.
What is Dental Bonding?
Your teeth are designed to last. Unfortunately, lifestyle choices, such as smoking and heavy soda drinking, and accidental trauma lowers its strength and longevity. Sometimes, the natural formation of your teeth are its biggest aesthetic and function drawback. How can you restore the natural appearance of damaged teeth without undergoing an invasive cosmetic procedure?
Dental bonding is, in many ways, the most conservative cosmetic dentistry procedure. Designed to repair discolouration and chipped or broken teeth, this easy and effective treatment completely alters the look of your smile.
Also known as composite bonding, this restorative procedure uses a tooth-coloured composite resin to literally reshape and restore teeth.
Dental Bonding Uses in Cosmetic Dentistry
Your dentist will ultimately evaluate whether bonding is your best option. In many cases, this procedure is recommended to:
- Replace a standard metal filling to repair tooth decay
- Restore the appearance of cracked or chipped teeth
- Eliminate tooth discolouration
- Close teeth gaps
- Elongate the size of teeth
- Change the entire shape of teeth
- Protect the root of a tooth if your gums have receded too far

Bonding Procedure | The Easy Way to a Perfect Smile
Performed in-chair, this quick procedure is minimally invasive and relatively painless. To make this process more enjoyable, a local anaesthetic is used to ensure a pain-free procedure. Unlike other cosmetic dentistry services, tooth enamel is left relatively unchanged.
To prepare your tooth, a phosphoric-acid-based gel is applied after a thorough cleaning. This solution adds a rough texture to the tooth surface. After an adhesive is applied and cured with a focused-beam UV light, the composite resin is applied in stages. Between each layer, the resin is set with ultraviolet light. Once the desired shape is achieved, your dentist polishes the newly formed tooth. The result? A smile you’ve always dreamed of having.
