If you are suffering from chips or worn teeth, gaps or tooth discoloration then dental bonding may offer you the solution to restore your teeth’s natural sheen.
Dental bonding is an aesthetic dental procedure which involves using white filling materials to change the shape and shade of your teeth.
Cosmetic bonding is fast becoming a more popular dental treatment. This is because recent advances in materials and its ability to be used in conjunction with other dental procedures mean that a patient can restore their teeth in a healthy and inexpensive manner.
In dental bonding a composite resin is used that can be shaped and bonded to match your existing teeth. In most cases, it is used for dental cosmetic purposes to help to improve the appearance of a discoloured or chipped tooth. It can also be used to close up spaces between teeth, to visibly elongate teeth or to change their colour or shape.
A benefit of dental bonding is that no preparation is needed before treatment, and anaesthesia is not often necessary, unless the bonding is being used to fill an already decayed tooth.
