Tooth Bonding and Reshaping

Tooth bonding and reshaping is a procedure that is commonly used to correct chipped, cracked, discoloured or misaligned teeth and is also effective in closing gaps between teeth.

Tooth bonding has many advantages. It allows the dentist to reshape the teeth without the need to cut any of the healthy enamel underneath. This means the treatment can be minimally invasive leaving the teeth intact which is much better for the health of teeth long term. Also tooth bonding is a simple and quick procedure often allowing us to obtain the desired result in one visit. In addition, tooth bonding is often a better economic option compared to porcelain veneers.

Tooth bonding treatments however can have their limitations.They may not last as long as porcelain restorations and the resin materials used may cause inflammation of the gum if put too close to the gum margin.  In many cases in comparison to tooth bonding, porcelain veneers are  a better option long term especially when using newer materials which require very little amount of tooth cutting. Every case has to be assessed based on its own merits and sometimes even a mock up needs to be done to see which option works best.  A consultation with the dentist is essential before you decide on the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will they look ‘fake’?

A: Resin veneers do not look ‘fake’. The material used is matched to the current shade of your teeth, which means they blend in. Also the material is polished to give the teeth a natural shine and lustre just like the enamel of your tooth.

Q: Are resin veneers long lasting?

A: As long as routine dental check ups are attended, they should last for several years. Regular polishing and stain removal is required to maintain the natural look of the veneers.

Q: Will resin veneers break?

A: Generally Resin Veneers do not break. However biting on hard food may cause chipping of the veneers. Either polishing or the addition of more resin to the veneer can easily repair small chips.

Q: Are they reversible?

A: Resin veneers require no or minimal tooth reshaping. This means, yes, they are reversible. If in several years you are unhappy with the veneers or wish to change/ replace them, we are able to remove the resin and leave behind the natural tooth structure that was originally there.

Q: How long does the procedure take?

A: Resin veneers only require 1 visit to the dentist. In 1 – 2 hours Dr Amrein can transform your smile using Resin Veneers.
