Dr. Ettienne van Zyl can perform dental bonding to conceal imperfections and enhance your smile in just one quick visit.

A Simple & Cost-Effective Solution for Dental Imperfections


Whether you are focused on treating one aspect of your smile or have several concerns to address, dental bonding is a diverse solution that can conceal stains, gaps, cracks, and even minor misalignment


Dental bonding is a simple treatment that can be completed in a single appointment. Additionally, it is much more conservative than other treatments like veneers and requires only minimal etching on the surface of the tooth.


Many patients are under the impression that they cannot afford cosmetic treatments. However, dental bonding can provide similar results to veneers at a fraction of the cost

Far-Reaching Effects of Dental Bonding

Since dental bonding can address multiple aesthetic concerns, it is an impressive cosmetic dentistry option. With dental bonding, Dr. van Zyl can:

  • Fill in chips and small cracks
  • Reshape teeth that are unusually small, worn, or irregularly formed
  • Close small gaps in between your teeth
  • Cover up stains, especially dark internal discoloration, which will not respond to traditional teeth whitening
  • Conceal slight orthodontic issues

Dental bonding can strengthen your teeth and help prevent future damage. In addition, you can have several teeth bonded at once, saving you the trouble and expense of multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures. 

Dental Bonding Procedure

The first step of your dental bonding procedure will include a thorough evaluation conducted by Dr. van Zyl. He will examine your oral health to determine your treatment candidacy. Dental bonding is suitable for most patients. However, if you have gum disease or dental decay, Dr. van Zyl will want to address these issues first and provide appropriate care before performing a cosmetic treatment.

After the initial evaluation and treatment planning, the dental bonding procedure will take place in a single visit. Dr. van Zyl will coat the teeth with a mild solution which will etch your enamel. This step is not uncomfortable, and simply creates a proper surface area for the bonding material.

Next, he will apply the bonding agent, then the composite resin, which will closely match the shade of your teeth. He will sculpt the material so that it has a smooth, natural look. When he is finished, Dr. van Zyl will harden the composite with a curing light. Finally, he will polish your teeth so your smile has a natural luster.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

The most noticeable benefit of dental bonding is that it can give you an attractive smile, which can light up your face, often helping you look years younger. The results of dental bonding are very natural, thanks to Dr. van Zyl’s skill, and the lifelike color of the composite.

Additionally, bonding is a very affordable choice. The composite used in bonding will typically not last as long as porcelain veneers. But, because of the reasonable cost of treatment, it may be easier to complete touch-ups to maintain your smile.
