Sometimes smile imperfections such as gaps, chips and cracks in your teeth can be easily solved with composite bonding. This process is simple, affordable and often completed in just one appointment.
The process uses a material very similar to that used for tooth-coloured fillings to disguise small imperfections. The tooth is prepared, usually with etching solution, and we apply and shape the material, making it look natural. It is then set, or bonded, into place using a special light.
Unless you have a decayed and painful tooth, you won’t need any of kind of anaesthetic, as the procedure is pain free.
Bonding offers an additional benefit in that it does not require the removal of any of the natural tooth surface.
Despite its simplicity, this process can make a remarkable difference to the way you look.
4 Reasons Why Many Patients Choose Tooth Bonding To:
- Close the gaps and space between their teeth
- Cover up any decay and hide discolouration
- Shape and lengthen the appearance of teeth
- Fix cracked and chipped teeth.
This usually pain-free procedure can reshape pointy or worn down teeth and smooth small chips and breakages, often to great effect.
The changes are usually very subtle – sometimes our clients cannot even tell exactly what we have done – but they can make a big impact, especially when combined with tooth whitening.
