Aurora Gap Closures and Tooth Bonding

Dental Gap Bonding: Functional and Esthetic Teeth

How can Gap Closure Repair your Smile?

Gaps between your teeth can be embarrassing and at the same time annoying. To some people, the effects can be so overwhelming that they shy away from friends and social gatherings. Fortunately, advanced treatment methods are now available to close teeth gaps so you don’t have to worry anymore.

Considering each patient’s condition your orthodontist will decide which dental procedure best suits you. Dental bonding, dental veneers, dental crowning, and orthodontics can all be used to close teeth gaps.

The most common and cost-effective method preferred by patients is dental bonding. Apart from hiding gaps, this procedure is used for situations like:


  • Masking teeth cracks
  • Concealing tooth stains
  • Protracting teeth if it is required
  • Tooth whitening
  • Act as a preventive to further damage
  • Strengthen and protect roots
  • For fixing chipped, decayed, broken, misshapen teeth.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is the process of adding a resin plastic that will blend nicely with the existing tooth for reshaping or repairs. The composite material selected will be conditioned to the tooth forming a bond hence the name ‘bonding’.

Whether the patient is looking to repair a single tooth or he/she wants several teeth to be bonded, this technique is applicable and takes only one visit to complete. The factors that cause each gap case are usually different, but so are the remedies for every patient’s case. 

You should always consult with your specialist about a solid gap bonding treatment plan. Otherwise, the results can be harmful in more than one way.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding can provide patients with an improved dental appearance that is both functional and aesthetic. In addition, it is among the easiest and least expensive techniques to improve the appearance of your teeth.

It’s a fact that the demand for this procedure has been on the increase with every passing year.  If you would like to fill the gap between your teeth, contact our team of specialists to discuss treatment further.
