Procedure Details

When you visit the dentist in 6ix Eglinton Dental in Yonge and Eglinton  for a dental bonding procedure remember that it is not an extensive process. It does not need much-advanced planning. In addition, this procedure does not need anaesthesia often except if the teeth have grossly carious decay.

The process: in the first step for bonding the dentist will use a shade guide to pick a composite resin material — that imitates the color of your tooth. The surface of the tooth is slightly scratched and a conditioning liquid is applied. The application of etchant and liquid bond help the bonding material stick to the tooth.

Then the dentist applies tooth-colored filling after this step he shapes and flattens the dental bond according to the tooth requirement. Next, the dentist cures the dental bond with a special light, which attaches the material to the surface of the tooth. Finally, the dental expert will trim and polish the bonded material with the help of disks to match the gloss of the remaining teeth.

The procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete. Procedure duration also depends on the expertise of the dentist.

You’ll get the most out of it by following a healthy oral hygiene routine, avoiding hard candies and chewing on ice, and staying away from food and drink that could stain your teeth. If you happen to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, be sure to brush immediately afterwards.


Dental Bonding is one of the easiest and most affordable cosmetic dental procedures. Dental crowns and Veneers are other types of tooth coverings. However, these dental prostheses are fabricated in a dental lab. Dental Bonding in Yonge and Eglinton usually can be done in one dental sitting unless several teeth need to be restored.

Another advantage is that the least amount of tooth enamel is removed in this procedure. Dental anaesthesia is not required unless it is being used to fill a grossly decayed tooth.
