What is Bonding?

Tooth bonding is used for a variety of purposes:

  • to correct a tooth gap
  • to cover discolorations
  • to repair chipped/cracked teeth.

Bonding takes approximately 30-60 minutes in a single visit to our office. Tooth bonding is dependent upon the artistic ability of the dentist, since the work is done "freehand" without taking impressions or using a laboratory. The tooth must be colour-matched, sculpted, and polished to produce a beautiful and natural-looking result.  Dr. Kurtz is trained in tooth bonding techniques and has years of experience in cosmetic dentistry.

The Bonding Procedure

Bonding takes approximately 30-60 minutes in a single visit to our office.

  • First Dr. Kurtz selects a shade of composite resin that is as close as possible to the shade of your teeth.
  • Then, he applies a liquid that helps the bonding material adhere to the teeth.
  • The composite resin is applied to the teeth, smoothed into the desired shape, and hardened with a high intensity light.
  • After the resin has hardened, Dr. Kurtz makes a few final touches and polishes the teeth being treated until they resemble the other teeth.

Dr. Kurtz can repair multiple teeth during a single visit.

Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth.

However, patients with implants, crowns and some people with gum disease, a genetic predisposition for plaque build-up or cavities, or a weakened immune system might need to visit the dentist more frequently for optimal care. After gathering all the information along with your concerns Dr. Kurtz will meet with you and do a thorough examination.
