If you have unsightly gaps between your teeth, we have the perfect easy solution. You don’t need to wear braces for months on end or worry about injections or needles: with dental bonding, we’ve got it covered!
Dental bonding is a procedure, which is used to make repairs to damaged teeth and improve the aesthetic of the smile. It is a quick, affordable and straightforward alternative to orthodontic treatment and veneers.
What does dental bonding involve?
Dental bonding involves using dental composite, a putty-like material, to fill gaps and reduce the size of spaces between teeth, repair chipped teeth and build up worn tooth surfaces. Dental composite is also used for white fillings and it is available in a range of shades, so we can match the composite to your natural tooth colour.
When you have bonding, your dentist will use their expertise to shape the composite and then set it using a curing light. The entire process usually takes around one hour and there is no pain involved, so you won’t need to worry about injections or anaesthetic. Once the composite has set, it becomes strong and durable, although it is not as strong as the natural enamel we have and you will need to take good care of it.
If you have large spaces between your teeth and you are looking to fix the problem, rather than finding a way to change just the aesthetic of your smile, we recommend orthodontic treatment. We have many treatments available, including discreet systems, which enable you to enjoy a straight smile without any worries about your image.
