Cosmetic Bonding at Kedron Dental Centre

What are Dental Fillings?

Cosmetic bonding is a technique which is designed to repair damaged or discoloured teeth. Bonding can correct blemishes and irregularities of your front teeth without removing tooth structure e.g large gaps between front teeth can be reduced. Tooth bonding is the application of a tooth-coloured resin material using adhesives and a high intensity curing light.

Dental bonding is a more affordable option to crowns and veneers and usually only requires one visit. The duration of how long dental bonding can last differs from patient to patient.
