May 9th, 2009 Dental Bonding in London W1: A Great Way to Improve Your Smile Get in touch

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that involves the application of a durable resin material to the tooth. A London W1 dentist will use a special light to harden the resin material, which is similar in color to your teeth, to make it bond to your tooth to improve or restore your smile.
Dental bonding can be used to:
• Repair decayed teeth. Your London W1 dentist can use composite resin materials to fill cavities
• Close gaps between teeth
• Repair cracked or chipped teeth
• Eliminate discolored teeth
• Improve the appearance of your teeth by making them longer
• Change the shape of your teeth
• Cosmetic substitute to amalgam fillings
• Protection for your tooth’s root or a portion of it which has been opened when your gums recede
Meanwhile, in the field of cosmetic dentistry, dental bonding is considered to be the easiest and cheapest procedure. The dental bonding procedure includes:
• The preparation – this stage involves your dentist’s selection of a shade that will be his basis for choosing the color of composite resin that closely matches your tooth color. No anesthesia is required during this stage. However, if you are to use dental bonding as filling for a decayed tooth, you may need an anesthesia.
• Bonding process – A conditioning liquid will be applied to your tooth which has been roughened in preparation for the bonding. Then, the composite resin is applied, shaped and smoothed. To harden the composite material, an ultraviolet light will be used. The finishing touches will include trimming, shaping and polishing of the tooth to match the sheen of the surrounding teeth.
