paces between the teeth can naturally occur for many reasons, and those who deal with this imperfection on the front of the smile will often want to talk to their dentist about the options available to them when it comes to achieving the smile they have always wanted—free from imperfections! One option available to Oakville, ON area patients is teeth bonding.
What is teeth bonding for gaps?
Oakville, Ontario patients interested in teeth bonding
for gaps between the teeth can work with Drs. Stephen Gaines
and Arti Patel
to find out if they are a good fit for this specific treatment. Professional teeth bonding, sometimes called dental bonding, is a viable option for patients looking for a fast solution to spaces between the teeth. The material, often made of a composite resin, is administered onto the area of concern, and hardened with a special light. Then, after the material has been cured, the dentist then files and polishes the bonding to look like natural tooth enamel while disguising the gap between the teeth. This is a fast, effective, and affordable solution for improving the smile.
What other options are available?
Other options that can be used for disguising gaps is porcelain veneer. Porcelain veneers are ceramic restorations that are made like thin shells. They are created to match the patient’s natural teeth in color, shape, and size. The restoration is bonded onto the front of the tooth to cover imperfections, including unusual shape and size of a tooth, a broken tooth, or even a misaligned tooth. This is an alternative to composite resin bonding, though it costs more and takes more time. Unlike tooth bonding, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, which allows them to last longer than traditional bonding. During a consultation appointment, patients can ask about the pros and cons of tooth bonding versus porcelain veneers.
