  • How Tooth Bonding Works

    A tooth-coloured composite resin is directly applied to teeth and set using a curing light. The tooth is then trimmed and polished to finish. Tooth bonding can be an effective way of improving minor blemishes and has several advantages:

    • Minimally invasive
    • Requires little if any tooth preparation
    • Can be achieved in a single visit
    • More affordable than fillings, veneers and crowns

  • Can Anyone Get Tooth Bonding?

    We may recommend tooth bonding if you have minor functional and aesthetic concerns with your teeth, however it’s not suitable for everyone.

    If you want to seal gaps in teeth caused by tooth decay, a white filling may be more suited and if the damage is more extensive, a crown or bridge may be recommended instead.

    Tooth bonding is more affordable than other treatments and bonded tooth surfaces can be maintained and repaired fairly quickly, making it a popular cosmetic dental choice. However, if you suffer from tooth decay, gum disease or other damage you may not be suitable for treatment.

  • Process of Tooth Bonding

    Tooth bonding follows a relatively quick and painless treatment process. Local anaesthesia is not typically required, as your dentist only works on the outside of the tooth:

    • Tooth’s surface is etched with a gel
    • Bonding liquid is painted on the tooth’s surface
    • A curing light hardens the liquid in place
    • Composite resin is moulded onto the tooth and shaped
    • Resin is hardened again by the curing light
    • Tooth is trimmed into shape and polished

  • How Can I Avoid Damaging My Teeth

    A tooth that’s been restored with tooth bonding treatment will look, feel and function just like a natural tooth, yet with any tooth that’s had a restoration, it won’t be as strong as the real thing.

    Composite resin is weaker than tooth enamel and is more prone to stains, so they will require touch-ups from time to time. You can keep them in better condition by avoiding certain foods and activities:

    • Hard and sticky foods
    • Biting your nails, pens and other hard objects
    • Teeth grinding and clenching
    • Staining food and drink like coffee, wine, beetroot, tomato and curry sauces
    • Smoking

Frequently asked questions

The cost of tooth bonding starts from $170 to repair a single surface chip. However, the cost can increase if more extensive bonding is required. During a consultation, your dentist can provide you with a break-down of all costs prior to going ahead with treatment. EVP Dental also provides flexible payment plans with Zip and Openpay.

Tooth bonding and veneers can both cover up imperfections on teeth, but bonding can be more suited to small blemishes, such as chips, cracks or rough edges, while veneers can make a significant improvement and will cover the entire tooth. Veneers may be made from composite resin bonded onto teeth or from porcelain, which is designed in a dental laboratory.

Tooth bonding can last between 4 and 8 years with proper care. It’s common to require touch-up work and minor repairs from time to time. You can help keep bonded teeth in good condition by avoiding the foods and activities that can damage them and by following a good oral hygiene routine.
