What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding, also known as composite or cosmetic bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure, which is capable of sculpting and reshaping the teeth to create a beautiful, flawless smile. If you have chipped teeth, worn surfaces, uneven teeth or misshapen teeth, this could be the solution for you.
The bonding process takes around an hour and there is no pain involved at all, so you won’t need any injections or anaesthetic. Your dentist will use material called dental composite to sculpt your smile and carry out running repairs to teeth are not shaped perfectly. At room temperature, composite has a similar consistency to putty, and this enables your dentist to shape and mould it. They will use their skill and experience to reshape the teeth, making minor adjustments that will make a massive difference to the overall look of your smile. Once the composite is in the right place, your dentist will use a curing light to make it firm.
