If you’re conscious about smiling in public because of unsightly gaps between your teeth, we have brilliant news. With bonding, we can reduce the size of gaps and create a more attractive looking smile to make you feel more confident and ensure you don’t feel the need to hide your smile away in the future.
What is bonding?
Dental bonding, also known as cosmetic or composite bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure with a range of uses that presents a simple way to make the smile look gorgeous and healthy. Bonding involves using dental composite, a tooth-coloured material, to carry out repairs to the teeth, improve the shape and appearance of individual teeth and decrease the size of gaps between the teeth. Composite is soft and putty-like at room temperature, but it can be hardened and this ensures that any improvements last for a long time.
When you have bonding treatment, your dentist will choose the shade closest to your natural tooth colour and then shape the composite to complete the required modifications. This procedure can be used to repair chips, smooth out uneven edges, build up worn surfaces, balance the shape of a tooth and close gaps between the teeth. Once the composite is in the right place, your dentist will then ask you to pop on a pair of protective glasses and they will shine a curing light onto your teeth to set the composite. This is a very quick process.
How long does bonding take?
One of the best things about dental bonding is that it takes just one hour to produce amazing results! The changes are noticeable straightaway and you’ll be amazed at how much the simple procedure can achieve.
