Small changes to your smile could make a big difference
If you are looking for a minimally invasive way to get a happy, healthy and improved smile then composite bonding might be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Composite bonding is a popular treatment here at one80 dental in Sheffield. It is a tooth-coloured filling material, used as a cosmetic solution that can be applied to a tooth (or several teeth) surface to close gaps, improve proportions or even redesign a whole smile.
It can also be used to fix chipped teeth, fractures and cracks, as well as help to deal with more aesthetic concerns around the appearance of discoloured, shortened, or misshapen teeth.
Also referred to as “cosmetic bonding” or ‘tooth bonding’ this affordable cosmetic treatment is appropriate for patients of any age with good dental health.
The procedure is affordable and longlasting
Composite bonding is an affordable option and less invasive than treatments like dental crowns or veneers.
Dental bonding treatment begins with an initial examination of your smile where your individual requirements and any concerns or problems will be identified and discussed before any dental work is started.
Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding
The Composite Bonding process
Your dentist will start by choosing a composite resin colour that matches your tooth best so that the end result looks natural. We normally recommend that you have any teeth whitening treatments first to achieve your preferred shade before treatment for bonding begins.
This treatment is also ideal following a tooth whitening procedure as the composite material can be matched to the brighter and whiter shade of the natural teeth. It is also ideal after orthodontic treatment as any gaps or discolouration discovered as a result of tooth movement can be dealt with efficiently by composite material – this popular combination is often referred to as Alignment, Bleaching and Bonding (ABB).
Benefits of professional home whitening
Composite bonding is an for closing small gaps between teeth. If the gap is too big, orthodontic treatment may be recommended prior to tooth bonding. The two treatments can compliment each other very well (if appropriate)
Composite resin isn’t as strong as your natural teeth and it is possible for the material to chip or crack but it is repairable.
With good oral hygiene and regular check-ups, composite bonding can last for several years.
