If you’re searching for a brilliant solution for chipped or worn teeth, allow us to introduce you to cosmetic bonding. This amazing treatment can transform the appearance of the teeth, giving you greater confidence and enabling you to enjoy a beautiful new smile.
What is bonding?
Cosmetic bonding, also known as composite bonding, is a dental procedure used to patch up chipped teeth, build up worn surfaces and improve the shape and look of an individual tooth.
Bonding uses dental composite, a tooth-coloured material, to make the teeth look more attractive. Composite has a similar consistency to putty and this means that it can be shaped and moulded to make the necessary changes. Once it is in the right place and your dentist is happy with the new look of the teeth, it is set using a curing light.
One of the best things about composite bonding is the simplicity of treatment. The procedure is complete in one hour-long session and there’s absolutely no pain involved. Your dentist will simply employ their skills to craft the composite to the desired effect and you’ll be amazed at the difference when you look in the mirror. Although the individual changes to the teeth are usually fairly minor, the overall impression is amazing.
Who can benefit from dental bonding?
Dental bonding can be beneficial for patients with a wide range of minor aesthetic flaws, including chipped and worn teeth and small spaces between the teeth. It may offer a cheaper and less invasive alternative to veneer treatment and the results should last for several years.
