We can fix your tooth and improve the look of your smile with an incredibly effective, painless treatment called cosmetic bonding.
What exactly is cosmetic bonding?
Cosmetic bonding, also known as composite or aesthetic bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure, which is used to alter the appearance of the teeth. This is a versatile procedure, which can be used for a host of aesthetic issues, including chipped, worn and broken teeth. To achieve results, your dentist will first select the shade of dental composite that matches your natural tooth shade. Your dentist will then sculpt and mould the putty-like composite material to build up the tooth surface, smooth the edge or repair damage. Once the composite is in the desired place, your dentist will set it using a curing light. As composite is available in a range of shades, the repair work is seamless, and you can’t tell the difference between the natural tooth tissue and the composite.
Cosmetic bonding is a versatile treatment, which produces results in less than an hour. The treatment is painless, you don’t need any anaesthetic, and you’ll be able to see results straight away. As well as repairing the teeth, cosmetic bonding can also be used to reshape the teeth and close gaps between the teeth.
