What is cosmetic bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is also known as composite bonding, and it is an effective procedure that involves using dental composite to fix damaged teeth and improve the overall aesthetic of the smile. Composite is a tooth-coloured putty-like material, which can be set using a powerful light source. It is also used for white fillings.
Bonding is most commonly used to rebuild chipped teeth, but it can also be an effective solution for patients with worn teeth and spaces between their teeth.
The best thing about this treatment is that it guarantees amazing results without any pain. The procedure is quick and simple and the results are visible straight away.
Your Clifton dentist will use their creative flair and expertise to mould the composite to repair your chipped tooth. The shade of the composite will be closely matched to your natural tooth so that you won’t be able to spot the difference between the composite and the tooth.
Once your dentist has shaped and bonded the composite onto the tooth, it will be set. This involves shining a curing light onto the tooth. This process is quick and painless, and all you need to do is pop on a pair of goggles to protect your eyes from the light.
Once the composite is hard and any final adjustments have been made, you can take a look at your new smile! Often, even the simplest and most minor changes to the individual teeth can make an amazing difference to the overall look of the smile and you can get ready to smile with confidence again.
