Bonding

Bonding

Dental bonding refers to the specialised process that dental professionals use to repair cracked or chipped teeth, to correct stained teeth and to replace silver amalgam fillings. It is also a highly effective process for the repair of the teeth on dentures.

A common procedure in modern dentistry, bonding is also an effective method of closing gaps and reshaping misaligned teeth. We use advanced materials and modern techniques to provide the best possible outcomes. The result is healthier looking teeth and a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Our Denture Repair Clinic

At Dentistree, our denture clinic in Melbourne has skilled technicians who can provide fantastic bonding services and results. We boast a team of dental professionals who have extensive experience applying advanced composite resins and have detailed knowledge of the techniques to provide repairs that will match your teeth or your dentures. When working on your teeth, we take a conservative approach that involves minimum alteration to the original tooth enamel.

There are some limitations to the restorative impacts of bonding. We will undertake a consultation with you to identify the work that is needed, and we will be able to tell you if bonding is right for you or if there are other recommendations we believe you could consider. Then we will ensure you understand the proposed outcomes for the procedure. We appreciate that this is an important decision for you and that you must have clear information that you fully understand.

Our Bonding Procedure

Our denture clinic in Melbourne uses a comprehensive bonding procedure to ensure the composite resin is properly applied. We aim to ensure that this procedure is pain-free, that it is almost impossible to notice the difference between the repair and your teeth, and that the greatest possible strength is achieved with the resin.

  • We use a local anaesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding tissue.
  • The tooth is isolated from the rest of your teeth using a thin sheet of rubber. This prevents saliva from ruining the bond of the composite.
  • The tooth is thoroughly cleaned to remove remnants of food, plaque, and tartar.
  • We prepare the tooth by roughening its surface using a phosphoric-acid based gel.
  • The composite resin is applied in layers and set at each stage using a special UV light. This is continued until the desired tooth shape is achieved.
  • Finally, the restored tooth is polished to give it a smooth finish.

The technicians at our denture clinic in Melbourne are very skilled at achieving a match with your teeth and also in producing the best possible aesthetic outcome by shaping and polishing the resin appropriately. We are committed to achieving the best possible result for you.
