How does dental bonding work?
At Cornerstone Family Dental, we will first scrape away the top layers of enamel from your tooth, clean the area and then apply a liquid chemical called etchant on to the area. The etchant will remove any stains on your teeth so that when we apply composite resin there won’t be any difference in colour between your natural teeth and newly applied composite resins. We will then use an ultraviolet light to harden the bond and cure any remaining etchant which could potentially harm or damage other parts of your mouth.
Once cured, we will then polish them for you to make sure your teeth will look at their best before you leave. Looking for a dentist who provides dental bonding in Calgary NE? Our dental bonding treatment provides beautiful results with affordable pricing.

What are the benefits of dental bonding?
Dental bonding can be done on a tooth that has been damaged by decay, or one that has been stained. It can also be used to close gaps between teeth, as well as correct small imperfections in the shape of teeth. At Cornerstone Family Dental, we may recommend this procedure if you have lost some of your natural teeth (as a more affordable option compared to dental implants) or when your remaining teeth are uneven.
Dental bonding procedures are relatively quick and painless, will usually take one visit to complete, with most taking less than an hour, depending on the extent of work required.
What are the common applications for dental bonding treatment?
Whitening discoloured teethMinor to major stains on teeth can be covered up with dental bonding. It first needs to be properly prepared before we ‘bond it’, or the bonding will not properly bond to the tooth. First the teeth are bonded with the help of a preselected bonding shade. Then, if any tooth stains are obstructing a beautiful smile, the spot will be treated with a thin coat.
Fixing misshapen teethMany people with misshapen teeth may look into their cosmetic dentistry options in order to make any misaligned teeth blend in with the rest of their teeth. Misaligned teeth often affect other aspects of a person’s health as a lack of ability for teeth to mesh together properly, could cause orthodontic problems. When dental bonding is applied to misshapen teeth, the positive aesthetic effect is usually very pleasing to the eye.
Minimizing gaps between teethIt is common for people who have gaps between their teeth to want to close them. Gaps between teeth can be minimal or quite large, depending on the size of the gap. Most often, dental bonding is used to address these gaps as a cosmetic issue which can be easily remedied. Bonding usually requires only one dental visit to close gaps!
What are frequently asked questions around dental bonding?
1. How long will dental bonded teeth last?
Bonding on the front teeth can last between 4 and 8 years, depending on the location of the bonded tooth, your bite, and your eating habits. It’s usually better to avoid biting directly into your food, particularly hard consumables that can compromise the structure of the dental bonding.
2. How do I maintain bonded teeth?
Here’s the best maintenance process: Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily. Avoid hard food and candy. Don’t bite your nails. Avoid drinking too much coffee, tea. Don’t smoke. Smoking will cause staining for certain. Schedule regular dental cleanings every six months.
3. Can I use mouthwash with bonded teeth?
There’s no guarantee that veneers, Lumineers, or other dental bondings can prevent damage and decay to your teeth. Alcohol-based mouthwash should also be avoided. Frequent use of mouthwash can lower the lifespan of your dental bonds because alcohol can weaken dental bondings.
