Composite Bonding to Restore Teeth

Composite bonding, also known as cosmetic bonding, is a very effective treatment used to repair damaged teeth. This treatment is simple, quick and affordable, yet it can make a massive difference to the look of your smile. If you’ve put up with chipped or worn teeth for too long, now is the perfect time to call us and find out more about composite bonding.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that also has restorative benefits for your teeth. Dental composite is used to repair damaged teeth. In its putty-like form, it can be shaped and moulded to repair chipped teeth, build-up worn tooth surfaces and even close the gap between two teeth. Our dentists will use their creative flair and experience to create amazing results using dental composite and once you are happy with the look of your new smile, the composite will be hardened before final touches are made. Before bonding, your dentist will clean the affected teeth, roughen the edges and apply resin and bonding agent to ensure that the composite will bond properly. The composite is then added and it is set hard using a curing light. After final adjustments have been made, your dentist will give your teeth a polish to ensure you leave with a gleaming smile. Composite bonding usually takes less than an hour and only a single appointment is required; the procedure is painless and most patients do not require local anaesthetic.

Who can benefit from composite bonding?

Composite bonding is an ideal treatment for patients who have chipped teeth, worn teeth or a small gap between two of their teeth; this is a more affordable option than veneers and it is also quicker and more straight-forward.

How Composite Bonding Can Help Chipped or Cracked Teeth

A person’s teeth can end up chipped or cracked for many different reasons varying from involuntary teeth-grinding (bruxism), accidental injuries, and even a severe build up of tooth decay. In the event that a tooth does become chipped or cracked it is possible to look into composite bonding to help correct the damage.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is the procedure in which a dentist repairs a fractured, chipped, cracked or discoloured tooth, using special tooth-coloured resins so as to blend perfectly with the rest of the patient’s teeth.

How is composite bonding treatment carried out?

Composite bonding is a simple procedure and unless the chip or crack in the tooth has been caused by tooth decay, anaesthesia won’t even be necessary.  Firstly, and to ensure that the tooth-coloured composite blends in perfectly with the chipped tooth, the dentist uses a shade guide, finding the best possible match. When this matching colour has been chosen the next step is for the dentist to prepare the tooth for bonding by making the surface of the tooth in question rough and abrasive. A conditioning liquid is then applied onto the tooth to ensure that the composite bonding material will stick. Next comes the most important part, applying the bonding material. This resin is treated much like clay, being moulded and smoothed until it has formed the perfect shape. Once this has been perfected the resin is then hardened into position using either ultraviolet lights or lasers. Once hardened, the bonding material is further shaped, trimmed and finally polished so that it matches the colour of the rest of the teeth.We carry out such treatment at Clifton Dental Studio in Bristol so do contact us if you would like more advice or information.

Repair Chipped Teeth with Composite Bonding

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding, also known as cosmetic bonding, is a commonly used dental procedure and an excellent option for patients with chipped or worn teeth. In this procedure, the dentist uses their experience and skill to shape soft dental composite to repair chips and increase the bulk of tooth structure on worn surfaces to enhance the aesthetic of the smile. During the first stage of treatment, the composite is soft and this enables your dentist to mould it. Once the composite is in the right place, your dentist will then use a curing light to harden it and the tooth will be stronger, as well as looking more aesthetically pleasing. Bonding generally takes less than an hour, there is no pain and therefore no injections and the results are amazing. Even the smallest chip in the tooth can make you feel self-conscious about the look of your smile and chips can also increase the risk of further damage to the tooth. With bonding, the tooth becomes stronger and your smile looks gorgeous and healthy. Bonding can also be used to reduce the size of a gap between two teeth.

Is cosmetic bonding the best option?

There are other options available for chipped and worn teeth, such as veneers and other restorative treatments. However, in cases where the damage is minor and patients are looking for a quick solution, this treatment is often the best choice. If you have chipped or worn teeth, call our friendly reception team today and we can arrange a consultation to go through the different treatment options with you.

The Brilliance Behind Cosmetic Bonding

If you’re looking for a brilliant cosmetic dental treatment, allow us to introduce you to cosmetic bonding. This amazing treatment transforms the appearance of the smile in just one session and could be just what you’ve been looking for if you have minor aesthetic issues, such as chipped teeth.

About cosmetic bonding

Cosmetic bonding is an aesthetic procedure designed to reshape and repair the teeth using a material called dental composite. Composite has a putty like consistency at room temperature and it comes in an array of shades designed to match natural tooth shades. Your dentist will use their skill to place the composite onto the individual teeth and shape it to address problems such as uneven and worn surfaces, jagged edges, chips and gaps between the teeth. Once the composite is in the right place and your dentist is happy with the new aesthetic, they will shine a curing light onto the material and this sets it. Once the composite has set, you won’t be able to tell the difference between the natural tooth structure and the composite.

Who can benefit from cosmetic bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a simple and quick cosmetic treatment that offers an ideal solution for those who have mild imperfections affecting the shape or look of the teeth. Minor changes are made to the individual teeth, but the overall impact is incredible and after just an hour, you’ll be surprised at the difference. Bonding is a more affordable and faster alternative to veneers and it can also offer another option to braces for those who have small gaps between their teeth. If you like the sound of cosmetic bonding and you’d like to find out more, call us today!

What is dental bonding?

Bonding, also known as composite or cosmetic bonding, is a procedure that we use commonly to make running repairs and aesthetic improvements to individual teeth. Often, the changes to the teeth seem very minor, but the overall impact of treatment on the aesthetic of the smile is amazing. After just one hour in the chair, your smile will look totally different. With bonding, your dentist uses their skill and experience to shape dental composite to add volume to worn edges, improve the look of misshapen teeth and repair chipped teeth. We can also use composite to decrease the size of a gap between two teeth. Composite looks and feels like putty and it comes in a range of shades, so we can match the shade to the colour of your tooth. When your dentist is happy with the placement and position of the composite, they will shine a curing light onto the material and this will make it firm.

What are advantages of dental bonding?

There are many advantages of dental bonding, including:
  • speed: this procedure only takes one hour
  • simplicity: treatment involves a single session and the effects of treatment are visible straight away
  • pain-free: there’s no pain involved, so no need for injections or anaesthetic

Improve your Smile quickly using Composite Treatment in Bath

2904346_blogWe’re not all blessed with perfect pearly whites, but if you suffer an injury, you chip your tooth or you have a worn tooth, cosmetic contouring can help to restore your beautiful smile. This incredible treatment is simple, safe and effective, there is no pain involved and you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes. Cosmetic contouring is designed to re-shape the teeth to create a more attractive smile. Your Clifton Dental Studio will use their expertise to gently re-shape the teeth to address chips, worn surfaces and misshapen teeth; a specially designed polishing instrument is used to smooth rough edges and improve the shape of the teeth. The procedure usually takes less than an hour and simple changes to individual teeth have an incredible impact on the overall aesthetic of the smile. There is no need for patients to have anaesthetic because it is only the outer enamel surface, which is involved in the procedure, and therefore you will not feel any pain and you won’t have to deal with unpleasant numbness after treatment. As well as aesthetic benefits, tooth contouring can also help to boost oral health, as reducing crowding and making the teeth more uniform makes teeth cleaning easier.

Bristol chooses Cosmetic Bonding for a fast fix

2445507_blogIt is always lovely to retain a beautiful smile, especially as you get older and your teeth are starting to suffer from ravishes that life and age are throwing at them. If you find yourself in this predicament, it isn’t hard to rectify, especially if you choose to go for cosmetic bonding; this is probably the best treatment for cost, effectiveness and versatility you could go for. It involves rebuilding the damage areas and hiding them away with layers of white coloured resin (matched to the colour of your teeth), and once everything is tucked away, the teeth can be sculptured and polished until they fit in precisely with the rest of your mouth. The results will look great and it will only take an hour to achieve this. The only flaw with using resin is that it isn’t as durable as say porcelain veneers and comes with a shelf-life of around 5 years- it is also susceptible to staining. However, this can be simply remedied again by popping back for a top-up when things go wrong. Ask Clifton Dental about bonding and get this wonder treatment done in Bristol.
