If you have a gappy smile, this may affect your confidence, especially when you smile in public or you meet new people. Thankfully, we have a range of treatment options, which are capable of closing gaps and improving the aesthetic of the smile. One of our most effective and impressive procedures is cosmetic bonding, which can transform your smile in just one hour!
What is bonding?
Bonding is a process, which utilises dental composite to carry out repairs and adjustments to the teeth to improve the look of the smile; it is also known as composite or cosmetic bonding. Dental composite is a versatile material, which is also used for white fillings.
Bonding is a quick and affordable alternative to veneers and orthodontic treatment and it can be used to reduce the size of gaps between the teeth and to repair chipped and worn teeth. Bonding can also adjust and modify the shape of the teeth for a better aesthetic.
What does treatment involve?
Dental bonding is a simple, safe, effective and quick procedure, which produces amazing results in just an hour. There is no pain involved, so you don’t need an anaesthetic and the results are visible immediately.
Your dentist will shape and mould the dental composite to close the gaps between the teeth while it is still in soft form. Once they are happy with the position of the composite, it will be set firm using a curing light. The process requires skill and precision on the part of the dentist, but the patient is invited to sit back and relax. Once the composite is firm, any final adjustments are made and you can take a look at your brand new smile.
Bonding is a really impressive treatment because even the most minor alterations can have a drastic impact on your looks and the treatment is really quick and completely pain-free.
