What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is also known as cosmetic or composite bonding and it is a procedure, which strengthens the teeth, as well as creating a beautiful smile. This is a really effective treatment for patients who have chipped, uneven and worn teeth and even the most minor alteration can have an amazing impact on the overall impression of the smile.
Bonding utilises dental composite, a highly versatile material, which is also used for white fillings, to repair and patch up the teeth and improve the aesthetic and shape of the teeth. This is a great alternative to veneers for patients who are looking for a fast and affordable way of improving the look of their smile.
One of the best things about cosmetic bonding is the simplicity of treatment. This procedure usually takes around one hour and there is no pain involved, so you don’t have to worry about having injections or dealing with that unpleasant numb feeling when you go back to work. With bonding, your dentist will create amazing aesthetics by shaping and moulding the composite to repair chips, increase the size of worn surfaces and even up edges.
Composite is an excellent material because it comes in putty form and this means that it can be moulded to fit different sized gaps and create different shapes. Once it is in the right place, it is then set using a curing light. Once the composite is hard, it is strong and durable and should last for several years.
Composite is also available in lots of different shades, so we can find a very close match to your natural tooth colour for the best, most natural looking result.
