When you’re flying around London being a busy bee, you don’t really have time to fit in appointments at the dentists and if you really have to, you don’t want to be in there long. This can make things complex for you if something goes wrong, such as cracks and chips appearing that may affect the way you smile at people during the day. So what you’re after is a quick solution to the problem and cosmetic bonding offers the solution- you can be in and out again within the hour and ready to smile again. The dentist first sits you down and cleans your teeth so that the first layer of tooth coloured resin can be applied to the surface of the tooth and then ‘cured’ with a heat source. Then this process is repeated over and over until the offending problem has been covered and the dentist has enough to sculpture. Then your teeth are shaped until they are absolutely perfect, and then after a quick polish, you are on your way again. If there is a down side to bonding, it’s that it is not very stain resistant and not as strong as, say a veneer, but the upside to bonding is that if you do have any problems, they can easily be rectified by going back to the dentist for a quick touch-up. Flexible, fast and at your dentists now!
