If misshapen teeth, chipped, short or stained teeth or minor gaps are causing you to hide your smile; these issues are easily corrected in just one visit to your dentist. Composite bonding offers a quick and affordable cosmetic solution to disguise dental flaws. The tooth-coloured filling material used is called composite resin and is bonded to your teeth to give them a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Composite bonding can last up to 10 years with proper care. Maintaining a vigorous oral hygiene routine that includes regular dental appointments and avoiding hard sweets or crunchy foods can help increase the lifespan of composite bonding.
This cosmetic treatment takes 30-60 minutes per tooth. Dr Neal selects a resin colour that is a perfect match for your natural teeth. The tooth’s surface is roughened to ensure the resin adheres, and then a conditioning fluid is applied before your dentist moulds the resin in place. A special light is used to cure and harden the resin then your dentist trims and smooths the resin until it feels and looks natural.
Since composite bonding does not alter your natural tooth structure, this is a non-invasive treatment and typically doesn’t require an anaesthetic. Directly following your appointment, you may experience mild tooth sensitivity to hot or cold that subsides within a few hours.
To book your cosmetic bonding appointment or to arrange a consultation, contact Dr Steven Neal.
