Dental bonding is a conservative cosmetic treatment that can achieve dramatic results
Dental bonding is an effective treatment to correct and repair minor dental imperfections such as chips and stains, tooth decay and filling gaps in between your teeth. We offer dental bonding from our Upper Mt Gravatt dental practice to fill the unwanted imperfections in our patients smiles.
As a result, dental bonding is a quick and easy method to brighten your smile.
This treatment has been used for many years to correct issues such as:
- Chipped, cracked or misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- An asymmetrical smile
Dental bonding uses a composite resin material that can be matched to the colour and shape of your natural tooth . This resin mimics the translucent quality of your tooth enamel, providing a beautifully seamless result.
The benefits of dental bonding
Dental bonding usually requires only one visit to our dental practice and as such many patients find this dental correction method desirable as it requires less time in the dental chair and is also less expensive than other forms of restorative dental treatments. Best of all, the procedure is virtually pain free although you may experience some minor discomfort during the tooth preparation stage.
Here at Family Dental Excellence we pride ourselves on providing a comfortable and relaxing dental experience which is why we also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for those patients who are anxious about their dental work. This is aimed at allowing you to receive the dental treatment you need and want while being comfortable and relaxed during your procedure.
It is important to note that dental bonding is a great solution for treating only minor tooth/teeth imperfections. However, if you have structural problems with a tooth or problems with multiple teeth then crowns or perhaps veneers may be the most appropriate and effective dental treatment.

What will happen at the initial consultation?
During your initial consultation, our dentists will discuss with you the changes you would like to make in your appearance. From here, they will explain the various treatment options that are available to you. This consultation will give you the opportunity to ask all the questions you have about the procedure. Once you have decided on the type of treatment you would like and are ready, we will walk you through the entire process, its limitations and risks so you are fully informed about the procedure and the expected outcomes of your treatment.
