Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is one of the easiest, least expensive, dental procedures available. With superb cosmetic results, dental bonding is most often used to improve the appearance of a chipped, discolored, or otherwise damaged tooth. It’s sometimes referred to as “bonded restoration”, and can usually be completed in one clinic visit. There are numerous applications for dental bonding:

  • To repair a tooth that has decayed
  • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • To improve the look of discoloration
  • To narrow the spaces between teeth
  • To change the actual shape of teeth
  • To protect an exposed part of a root

Dental bonding uses a specially formulated resin that’s applied to the tooth surface, then custom-shaped, and allowed to harden with exposure to light. There are several benefits to this method:

  • resin colours can be matched with the natural teeth
  • the resin can be applied to chipped or broken teeth
  • bonding can build up a tooth or fill gaps in between
  • resin material can restore a broken tooth to its size

With dental bonding, like any procedure, it’s important to assess if it’s right for the patient. At the Mackenzie Dental Centre servicing Vaughan, Maple and Woodbridge, Dr. Lloyd Pedvis and the team evaluate and assess, based on individual patient needs. Unlike some of the other cosmetic options available, there is no need for outside fabrication with dental bonding – the entire treatment can be completed in one visit, unless multiple teeth are involved. In fact, a complete procedure could be concluded in an hour or less.

Dental bonding may not require anesthesia, as the procedure is painless. The process starts with a mild chemical applied to the tooth. This roughens the surface of the tooth, allowing the resin to better adhere wherever applied. The resin has been colour matched and resembles designer’s putty. It’s applied to the damaged tooth, custom molded, and then smoothed into its final shape. Ultraviolet light hardens the resin. When hard, the resin can be further shaped and polished.

While dental bonding is quite resilient and hardwearing, there could be a need for touching up in the future. And although bonded teeth don’t require any special care, good oral hygiene is always recommended. For instance, it’s much better not to bite fingernails, not to chew on pens or ice, and not to needlessly abuse the teeth when eating hard foods. When a bonded tooth feels strange, or when biting something feels unusual, a “preventive” visit to the dentist is highly suggested.

At the Mackenzie Dental Centre, the emphasis with oral care is on prevention and maintenance, and it applies to all age groups. The Mackenzie team encourages regular exams, pre-emptive diagnosis, and treatment plans that are solution-focused. The clinic environment is comfortable and relaxing, and every effort is made to be open and approachable with each patient. Above all, patients are in capable hands with the Mackenzie team, considerate and attentive at all times.

In addition to dental bonding, the Mackenzie Dental Centre offers a full compliment of oral health services - from regular check-ups, to cosmetic dentistry, to dental and implant surgery.

Holly D.

Our Family has gone to Dr. Pedvis for over 25 years in his previous location. You are all so lucky to have him and his team to look after you in Vaughan now. I am a very complicated dental patient due to healthcare issues… I knew I was always safe with Dr. Pedvis!  I will miss your great stories, and trying not to laugh, as you work on my dental issues. Most people do not get to laugh at "The Dentist". Your new office looks awesome! 

Dorothy McMahon

I have been a patient of Dr. Pedvis for 13 yrs now. He is the greatest dentist I've ever had. He's extremely gentle, listens to your concerns and is compassionate. I once emailed the office with a severe toothache when it was closed. Shortly after Dr Pedvis contacted me with my concerns, he called in a prescription for me to get me out of pain. He then took me first thing in the morning and did a root canal. I highly recommend this dental office to anybody looking for a caring dentist. Also the staff is fantastic and they truly care about you as a person.

Kimberly Oppermann

I have seen many dentist prior to Dr. Pedvis, so I believe I have ample reference points to say that Dr. Pedvis is at the top of his field. He keeps up to date with developments in the field, invests in the latest equipment for his office and is able to handle a wide variety of procedures, from simple to complex. He also maintains a equally top level network of professionals to add to his service capabilities if needed.

Christopher Omiecinski

I am pleased to share my experience I had at the office of Dr. Lloyd Pedvis. From the moment I stepped into the office, I was made to feel welcome and comfortable, by the friendly competent staff. I found the office environment very pleasant. Dr. Pedvis is an excellent dentist. He takes the time to explain every procedure, and is attentive that I was comfortable at all times.

Melissa Lombardo

Me and my family have been going to Dr. Pedvis 's dental practice since 1995. He always performs excellent services, and is often available to handle emergencies. First class staff ,as well. Their new location in Vaughan is stunning! Highly recommended.

Cameron A M Muir

Dr Pedvis was so amazing! I can't say enough good things about him. Not only did he get me in quickly for a root canal (replying on a Sunday to my plea for help!) He was so great about addressing my pain, and understanding my irrational fear. His follow up after the root canal was absolutely amazing! I was shocked at his follow through and care for his patients even after the procedure. I would recommend him to anyone in need of dental work.
