Do you dream of a perfect smile? Do you have niggling imperfections, which your eyes are drawn to every time you look in the mirror? If so, dental bonding could be a solution worth considering. This is a versatile, affordable, rapid treatment, which can transform your smile and iron out those minor flaws.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a procedure, which is also known as composite or aesthetic bonding. The aim is to create a beautiful, more attractive smile by addressing mild imperfections, such as chipped teeth. Dental bonding involves using an incredibly versatile dental material known as dental composite. This tooth-coloured, putty-like substance is capable of a range of jobs, including building up work tooth edges, filling in chips and improving the shape of the individual teeth. The changes made to each tooth may be minor but the overall impact is magnificent. The best news is that this procedure takes less than an hour, and there’s absolutely no pain involved.
You may benefit from dental bonding if your teeth are misshapen, you have the odd chipped tooth or your teeth have gaps between them.
What does treatment entail?
When you have dental bonding treatment, your dentist will first select the appropriate shade of composite to match your natural tooth colour as closely as possible. They will then use their skill and creative flair to carry out the necessary modifications. Once they are happy with the new aesthetic, they will use a curing light to set the composite, making it firm. This process takes a minute and there’s no pain involved. Once the composite is hard, your dentist will carry out any final alternations to ensure a perfect finish. You can then see the results of their hard work in the mirror, and hopefully, you’ll be beaming from ear to ear!
