Changing The Shape Of Your Teeth

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

1050560_blogVery few people are lucky enough to have perfectly shaped pearly whites, but if you’ve got a worn edge, you’ve chipped a tooth or your teeth are in need of a little cosmetic TLC, there’s no need to worry. With cosmetic bonding, we can transform the appearance of your teeth in no time at all!

About cosmetic bonding

Cosmetic bonding, also known as composite bonding, is an aesthetic technique, which uses a material known as dental composite to change the shape and appearance of the individual teeth to create a beautiful, healthy looking smile. Dental composite is also used for white fillings and it has a putty-like consistency at room temperature; this means that it can be shaped and altered to fit gaps and carry out basic repairs. We are able to use this simple and painless technique to repair chips, build up worn edges, alter the shape of the teeth and even reduce the size of gaps between the teeth.

The process

Cosmetic bonding is a straightforward and pain-free procedure, which can usually be completed in just an hour. Your dentist will start by selecting the closes shade match so that the composite matches your natural tooth colour; they will then prepare your teeth and apply the composite, shaping and moulding it to create the perfect aesthetic. When your dentist is happy with the placement of the composite, they will ask you to put on a pair of goggles for a minute and shine a curing light onto the composite. This hardens and sets the composite; once this stage is complete, your dentist will then carry out any final modifications to ensure the perfect new look.

The benefits

Cosmetic bonding is one of the most affordable, effective and fastest ways to improve the look of your smile. It is a versatile treatment and you will be able to enjoy the benefits immediately. There’s no pain involved, so you won’t need any injections and the results should last for years to come.
