As we go through life, our smile go through a lot. Three meals a day, tea, coffee, knocks, and scratches. Often, we start to dislike what we see; chips, cracks, discolouration, and staining are all dental issues that can harm self-confidence.
You might think that cosmetic dentistry isn’t for you. You may worry about how much treatment costs, how invasive the procudures you need will be, and how long it takes to recover. Before you write off seeking treatment, think about composite bonding.
You may not have heard much about composite bonding. Although it’s a smile-enhancing treatment that will help you feel good about yourself, it doesn’t have the same celebrity status as porcelain veneers. So, what do you need to know about dentistry’s best-kept secret?
Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions about composite bonding.
Also known as “cosmetic”, “tooth”, and “dental bonding”, this simple and effective treatment uses a tooth-coloured composite resin to correct a variety of defects seamlessly.
Once we’ve completed the bonding process, you’ll love the results and feel great about sharing your smile with others.
Composite bonding is versatile. We can use this treatment to fix cracks and chips in your teeth and remove staining and discolouration. We can also rebuild mishappen teeth and close small gaps in your smile.
The composite bonding procedure involves the following simple steps:
The entire procedure typically takes around 30-60 minutes per tooth. Many people choose to have several teeth repaired at the same time. We’ll complete the procedure in a single session.
Once applied, the composite resin we use cannot be whitened. If you’re considering whitening your teeth, let us know, and we’ll plan the treatments around each other and match the resin to your new brighter smile.
The great news is that composite bonding is a minimally invasive treatment. We don’t need to alter the structure of your teeth before we start, and there’s no need for tools. Because the procedure is pain and discomfort-free, there’s typically no need for anaesthetic.
As there’s no pain, anaesthetic, or alteration, there’s no downtime following your composite bonding procedure. We recommend avoiding eating anything hard or sticky right after your procedure; however, once the bonding is firmly set, you can resume your normal diet.
Composite resin isn’t as strong as the enamel that naturally coats your teeth. The benefits of composite bonding can last for up to ten years with the proper care and attention. After this time, we can perform a further touch-up treatment to keep your smile looking good.
Composite bonding is a simple and inexpensive treatment with no downtime. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive cosmetic procedure, dental veneers are a popular choice. Veneers are fine porcelain coatings for your teeth that give them an instant makeover.
If you’re looking for a simple, minimally invasive treatment to fix the things you dislike about your smile, composite bonding might be for you.
