Are you searching for a beautiful bright smile that not only looks great but is also affordable? You might be thinking that veneers or advanced cosmetic dentistry might be your only option. But this isn’t the case. Many problems with the way teeth look aesthetically can be changed using dental bonding techniques.
At Woodborough House, we use dental bonding to help to restore your smile – perhaps you have a slight crack or a chip in a tooth, or your teeth are heavily stained and tooth whitening alone won’t help to restore your teeth into beautiful, pearly whites. Maybe you have gaps in your teeth and you feel that if they were filled in your teeth and smile would look better for it. If this sounds familiar, then you could be the perfect candidate for this procedure.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a technique which forms a thin layer of composite resin coating to the surface of the tooth. When it is carefully colour-matched to the shade of your own teeth, it will look completely natural. A composite bonding agent, such as a gel is added to the tooth surface and then exposed to a light source known as a curing light which activates the composite and helps it to set. As the composite resin hardens, it is sculpted by clinicians to cover the surface of the teeth evenly and to ensure that any damaged areas are filled in.
What kind of results can I expect?
The results will look natural, but you can expect to achieve an effect similar to porcelain or ceramic veneers. Dental bonding is in effect, a cosmetic filling for the teeth. As the procedure only takes around 30 minutes to 1 hour, you can have a new smile as soon as you leave the practice.
What should I be aware of?
It’s a safe procedure, but dental bonding is not suitable for large cavities as the composite material is not strong enough to cover large areas. Although it is a more affordable alternative to veneers, dental bonding is not as strong as these and it can be prone to staining, compared to your natural teeth or the porcelain materials.
Overall, if you think that with a little tweaking your teeth would look fantastic, then dental bonding can help to give you a great looking smile, at a fraction of the cost.
