Bonding

 

Bonding involves a composite paste made of acrylic resin If you have a chipped, spotted, or discoloured tooth, or a gap between two teeth, it can be repaired like magic using a technique known as bonding.

Bonding involves a composite paste made of acrylic resin and other durable materials that has been carefully blended to match the shade, translucency, and texture of your teeth. The paste is applied directly to the affected tooth and skillfully sculpted into shape—then hardened, smoothed, and polished to a beautiful shine.

The results are stunning. Best of all, they can usually be achieved in just one visit and, in some cases, without any freezing!

  • Metropolitan Dental—Now Open

    To all of our valued patients of Metropolitan Dental:

    Hello everyone! This is coming to all of you with good news! We have finally received official approval to head back to work. We have been closed for almost three months. Needless to say we are all quite excited to head back to Metropolitan Dental and to once again see all of you for your dental needs.

    COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us, including the shut down of dentistry across the province. We understand that many of you have been forced to wait for your dental care and we deeply appreciate your understanding and patience while we were closed. Your health and well being continue to be our highest priority as we carefully prepare and update our practice procedures. Please be assured that we will be taking care of you, just as we will be taking care of our families and ourselves.

    We know that our capacity of getting back to work will not be 100% initially, but we will be working hard to see all of you. We have opened our doors as of June 8th. We ask, unless you are experiencing an emergency, please wait for us to call you, instead of you calling the office. This will help to make our job of scheduling and re-scheduling patients easier. If you would like to email us to schedule or update an appointment click here.

    There are some new protocols that have been put in place by the Minister of Health for your next dental appointment, so we will be emailing these out to you prior to your appointment. These new screening processes are important for everyone to follow, we thank you for your co-operation.

    Once again, we thank you for your trust and patronage over the decades. Please remember as businesses continue to re-open, the DENTAL office is one of the cleanest and most sterile places that you will encounter. We have been working hard to ensure that commitment to you.

    We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces again.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Barton Walters, and Dr. Andrew Kaplan

    And the entire team at Metropolitan Dental
