If you have one or two minor defects in your teeth, it’s easy to fixate on them and worry. But when you have multiple problems, it’s much worse. Not only this but you’d be forgiven for believing that you might need several expensive dental procedures to restore your smile.
Having a mouthful of minor dental issues might get you down, but the good news is that it could be possible to fix your smile without having to endure hours of costly dental work. In some cases, we can give you a mini-makeover in just one sitting using composite bonding.
Sometimes referred to as “tooth bonding” or “cosmetic bonding”, this procedure doesn’t get its fair share of the limelight. In fact, you may never have even heard of it.
To help you understand composite bonding, here are some of the best reasons to love this simple but effective treatment.
Often, dental procedures are focused on fixing one or two distinct problems. Composite bonding can help address several issues all at the same time.
Using a composite resin, we can fix the following issues:
When you need a dental procedure, the first thing you probably wonder is what tools the dentist will use and how much discomfort you’re likely to experience.
With composite bonding, you might be surprised to learn that there’s no pain and not a single drill in sight.
Because we don’t take anything away from the existing structure of your teeth, you won’t usually need anaesthetic. We simply apply composite resin to your teeth and sculpt your new smile.
You could see the finished results within minutes, depending on how many teeth you have treated. Even if you have composite bonding on several teeth, you might need only one short appointment.
Once we’ve placed the resin on your teeth and we’re happy with its appearance, we’ll use a special light to set it. After this has hardened, we’ll smooth over sharp corners to ensure your teeth are perfectly comfortable.
Some people even choose to get composite bonding in their lunch break and return to work in the afternoon to show off their new smile.
Because there’s no pain, there’s no need to worry about taking time off to recover. You shouldn’t need to take any painkillers after the treatment. Also, you won’t even have to avoid any particular foods after the procedure.
Defects in your teeth can harm your confidence. You might not smile as often as you’d like, and you may even avoid being in photos.
All of that can change when you’ve had composite bonding. The results are instantly noticeable.
Your teeth will look fantastic. Best of all, the results will appear natural. Many people regain confidence quickly after getting their new smile.
Taking care of your teeth once they’ve had composite bonding is simple. If you brush your teeth twice daily using fluoride toothpaste and a soft toothbrush, floss and use mouthwash as appropriate, you should enjoy a great-looking smile for many years.
When you’ve had composite bonding, make an appointment with us twice a year, and we’ll ensure you’re maintaining the condition of the restoration.
Composite bonding is a simple treatment that provides exceptional results. If you want to know if you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure, call today to schedule your consultation.Back to Blog
