Dental Bonding – Instantly Transform your Smile

Friday, March 31st, 2017

shutterstock_306203957Are you looking for a magical treatment, which is capable of transforming your smile instantly? If so, your search could be over. With dental bonding, we can patch up worn edges, repair misshapen teeth and fill in chips in just an hour.

What is Dental Bonding and Could it Work for Me?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure, which is used to carry out minor repairs and adjustments to the teeth. It is a very simple and quick procedure, which can make an amazing difference to the overall aesthetic of your smile. If you have worn tooth edges, misshapen teeth, gaps between your teeth or chips, this could be the treatment for you.

When you have dental bonding, your dentist will first select the shade of composite that matches your natural tooth colour. The composite, the material that is used to repair and reshape the teeth, has a similar consistency to putty. It can be shaped and modified to fit and fill in gaps and alter the shape of the individual teeth. When your dentist is happy with the placement of the composite, it will then be set firm using a curing light. The light beam is simply directed onto the composite, and this causes it to harden. At this stage, your dentist will make any further adjustments to ensure a perfect outcome.

The Benefits of Bonding

Bonding is a simple, painless and quick solution for minor aesthetic problems such as chips. In just an hour, we can transform your smile, giving you more confidence and helping you to feel more attractive when you smile. There’s no pain involved, so you won’t need anaesthetic, and you can get back to the rest of your day straight away.

With dental bonding, we can offer a cheaper, simpler and faster alternative to dental veneers, so you can have a perfect smile without a hefty bill.

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a really effective technique that irons out minor cosmetic imperfections. This treatment is often recommended as an alternative to dental veneers. It is cheaper, faster, and more convenient.

Your dentist will use their expertise to mould the composite, which has a similar consistency to putty, to build up uneven surfaces, patch up small chips and improve the shape of the individual teeth. This treatment has a wide range of uses and it can really make a difference to the overall look of your smile. As well as repairing minor damage, bonding can also be used to close gaps between the teeth and create a more balanced aesthetic.

Once your dentist has shaped the composite and it is in the right place, they will use a curing light to set it. This makes the composite firm. This only takes a minute and you won’t feel any pain at all. Once the composite has set, your dentist will carry out any final adjustments, such as trimming, to make sure your smile looks flawless.

How long does treatment take?

Typically, dental bonding can be completed in around an hour. Before you have treatment, your dentist will explain what is going to happen, and you can ask as many questions as you like. You won’t need any anaesthetic, as this is a painless procedure. You’ll able to check out your new smile and see the incredible results as soon as your dentist has finished.

The great thing about this is if there are further problems down the line, you can simply get the resin touched up again making this a very versatile treatment indeed. If it has any weakness, it is open to staining because of the resin being slightly porous.
