We offer dental bonding. This is a painless treatment to repair fractured teeth and restore the natural texture, translucency and colour of the tooth. Multiple layers of composite bonding materials are used.
In some cases, options such as porcelain veneers and ceramic crowns may be appropriate for treating a fractured tooth.
What results can I expect?This young man chipped his tooth exposing the underlying tooth structure. Using gentle numbing and the latest in bonding techniques, Dr. Moroney was able to restore his tooth to its natural form and function. Treatment time was just 30 minutes, and the patient is delighted with the result!
This patient presented with a fractured upper front tooth. Total treatment time was 40 minutes. The result was a very natural shape, colour and translucency to match the original tooth.
This gentleman attended Monkstown Dental Surgery unhappy with the colour of his teeth and his stained anterior composite fillings. After scaling and polishing, we whitened his teeth and replaced the facings of his discoloured fillings using our mimimally invasive bonding technique.
He is delighted with the appearance, and doesn’t have to cover his mouth anymore when smiling!
Composite dental bonding
We use composite bonding technology at Monkstown Dental Surgery. Composite bonding is used to cover worn areas, replacing the missing enamel and preventing further tooth loss. Sensitivity to hot and cold liquids is reduced or eliminated. The teeth are restored to their original shape and colour.
Dental bonding treatment starts with preparation of the tooth surface. The surface is cleaned and then etched with phosphoric acid. This is rinsed away and a special adhesive agent is then applied to the treated surface. This is cured with a special light. Composite increments are then layered onto the tooth surface creating a natural texture and finish. This is then cured again and the surface is polished. The procedure takes 30-40 minutes and you can eat very soon afterwards.
