Bonding

Bonding is a contemporary method used for the restoration of natural wear or flaws of the teeth.

Νatural wear of the teeth includes discolorations or certain crooks, whereas flaws include the gaps between the teeth, the shape, the size and the bad convergence of the teeth during chewing.

This method uses special veneers with color, selected by the dentist, so that they can be similar to the natural color of the teeth or in order to give the desired bleaching after their bonding to the teeth.

Usually bonding is combined to bleaching.

The process is simple. The cosmetic dentist applies a sculpture on the teeth that already exist, using porcelain which is solidified with L.E.D. or Plasma Laser.

So, the bonding of the porcelain to the teeth becomes very potent, whereas the hardness of the porcelain becomes similar to the hardness of natural teeth.

The result is direct and impressive. Teeth that are formed badly or crooked, decolorized teeth are restored very quickly. In only one session the patient gets a transformed smile.

A special solution for children

Bonding is an excellent solution for children that have broken teeth and the alternative of filing down their teeth is not possible, due to their small oral cavity and the small surface of their teeth.   

General information about Bonding technique:

In general Bonding is a perfect solution for restoring teeth that have deep cervical corrosions or for patients who want to change the shape of their teeth but cannot afford porcelain veneers.

The result is excellent, without having to fill down the teeth. Some of the advantages of this method are the low cost and the fact that filing is avoided. However, Bonding technique cannot give us the aesthetic perfection that porcelain veneers provide.
