Dental Bonding in the Gold Coast
We all have tiny imperfections that bother us from time to time, and this holds especially true for teeth. It could be staining from drinking a tad too many cups of early morning coffee or maybe one of your teeth is a little bit shorter than its friends. It’s natural to have imperfections, but it’s human to strive for perfection! That’s why Dental Bonding may be what you need.
Whether it be a discolouration, a spacing problem, alignment problem or even a minor tooth chip, dental bonding can restore your teeth and enhance your smile! It’s a super quick and easy process, where we will apply a tooth-coloured resin to the tooth and correct it to best suit your needs. At WiSE Dental located in Robina, we can help you fix your minor imperfections with dental bonding!

What can dental bonding fix?
Dental bonding is an affordable solution that can fix a number of cosmetic issues. This includes:
Chipped tooth: Teeth chip all the time! Trust us. We know. Dental bonding solves this by replacing the chipped parts of the teeth and restoring it back to its original shape.
Slightly shorter teeth: Just because one tooth is slightly shorter than the others doesn’t mean it has to stay that way. With a few adjustments, dental bonding can lengthen the tooth so it can join its friends!
Slightly misaligned teeth: We get it. It’s frustrating when your teeth are slightly misaligned.It’s not so much that you need braces but it’s enough to annoy you. With dental bonding, we just need to “add” a bit to the teeth to straighten the entire row. It’s significantly faster than braces and just as cosmetically effective!
Slightly spaced out teeth: It can be demoralising when you look in the mirror to see a slight gap in between your teeth. But you don’t have to put up with this! We can compensate for this with dental bonding!
Whether dental bonding can fix your issues is highly dependant on your specific circumstances. With a quick consultation with our experienced team at our Gold Coast dental practice, we can tell you whether dental bonding is the right solution for you.
How long does dental bonding take?
The process can be summed up as being quick, simple and easy! One short trip to the dentist is all it takes to repair your tooth or enhance your smile with dental bonding. Dental bonding usually only takes up to an hour, but if you need more than one tooth that requires restoration then it may take multiple sessions.
It’s important to know that for the first 48 hours the resin is very vulnerable to stains. It’s advised that you avoid coffee, tea, cigarette smoke and anything else that may leave a blemish during this period.
Dental bonding maintenance and aftercare
As with anything, it’s important to take proper care of your dental bonding. It’s vulnerable to chipping and staining, so if you want your teeth to keep looking perfect then you need to put in the effort.
Here are a few tips to help!
We all enjoy daily pleasures like coffee, tea and perhaps a cheeky bottle of red wine, but limiting your consumption will help your teeth from staining.
We’ve all heard the news, smoking is bad for your health and this is just another reason to quit. Not only will you be protecting your smile from staining, but you will also reduce your chance of gum disease and oral cancer.
Dental bonding is not as strong as some other alternatives, so depending on its location, it may be recommended that you avoid biting or chewing on hard objects, otherwise you might chip it. Habits such as biting your nails are a big no no!
Notify your dentist if you’re feeling uncomfortable with your bite. It’s possible for us to repair or give it a little refinement if necessary.
Dental bonding does require some degree of artistic skill and experience to get the best results. With the dentists at the WiSE Dental, you’re just one quick and easy trip away to having the confidence to be you!
At WiSE Dental Clinic, we have a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options under one roof. Our highly experienced dentists will help you decide on the best treatment based on your specific circumstances. Come see our dental practice in Robina, Gold Coast today for a smile design consultation!
Pros and cons of dental bonding
Cost: Compared to other more expensive options, dental bonding is a cost effective way to fix your tooth and enhance your smile.
Speed: There’s never enough time! Luckily for you, dental bonding is only one quick visit away from giving you the perfect smile. It only takes up to an hour at most per tooth, so unless you need more done, you will be in and out in no time!
Ease: Dental bonding doesn't require you to visit the dentist multiple times like many other cosmetic dentistry alternatives such as porcelain dental veneers. Typically, dental bonding is completed in a single sitting!
Stains: Unfortunately, dental bondings can become discoloured over time. Everyday habits such as coffee, tea, red wine and smoking are all culprits of ruining your teeth. It's important that you don’t consume any of the above during the first 24-48 hours after your dental bonding! And if you’re a smoker, then maybe dental bonding isn’t the best option for you.
Durability: If you give your teeth the proper care, a dental bonding can easily last many years. However, it’s important to note that the material used in dental bonding can chip because it isn’t as strong as porcelain dental veneers or dental crowns.
What is the process of getting dental bonding?
The process of dental bonding is fairly simple and usually consists of:
Checking for suitability: Before we start anything, we first need to decide where dental bonding is the best approach for your teeth. In cases that are more serious, we may ask that you consider alternatives.
Choose the shade: The right colour is important! Once we’ve decided that dental bonding is the way to go, we will work with you to choose the perfect shade for your teeth.
Abrade the surface: Once we’ve decided on the colour, it’s time to start the process. The dentist will roughen the surface of your tooth so that the adhesive bonds well. Don’t worry, this is typically painless! A conditioning liquid is then applied to help with the bonding strength.
Application of resin: We’re almost done! When your tooth or teeth are ready, it’s time to apply the resin. We will mould the material to the right shape before exposing it to a blue ultraviolet light to harden it. After that, we just need to refine it to perfection and you’re ready to go!
The process may vary depending on your teeth but your highly experienced dentist will walk you through the entire process in detail.
