The advantage of dental composite bonding is that it is widely regarded as the most conservative and straightforward way to improve the appearance of your teeth. Dental composite bonding gives great results; see our composite bonding before and after gallery above. Further to this, the process of composite bonding is kind to opposing teeth (and the teeth that are affected by the dental bonding itself).
Repairs to the bonding are relatively easy, and there is virtually no preparation required regarding your gums, the tooth’s surface or the surrounding teeth. This, as well as the excellent results that are achievable, is why composite bonding is quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. Here at Elegant Smiles, we have a long and proven track record of creating happy patients.
Composite bonding has a wide and varied range of different uses and is therefore considered an incredibly versatile procedure. Some of the most popular uses for dental composite bonding UK include:
So, what is the composite bonding procedure like? The dental composite bonding process begins with us taking high-quality photographs of your teeth. From here, we will work together to plan exactly what needs to be done regarding the results and the look that you want to achieve. We will also then work together to choose an exact shade match, more often than not the best approach will be to actually blend a couple of different shades together so as to achieve a beautiful and natural match for your existing teeth and the composite bonding before and after effect you want.
To prepare the tooth for the composite bonding, an etching material is placed onto the tooth’s surface. This aids the dental composite bonding in binding to the tooth. During this process, no natural tooth tissue is removed. Once the applicable materials have been applied, the composite bonding resin is added and moulded to the tooth (or in such a way as to achieve the desired look/solving the specific issue).
After the composite is hardened using a specialised blue light, we will spend some time on polishing so that the ideal shape is achieved; it is also important that we blend the dental composite bonding perfectly into your tooth surface for a natural composite bonding before and after effect. Local anaesthesia or numbing solutions are very rarely used as composite bonding is not a procedure associated with any degree of pain or even discomfort. The process itself can take anywhere from 1-3 hours, depending on the number of teeth being treated.
The beauty of composite bonding is that it is one of the least expensive and most conservative of cosmetic dental options – just see the composite bonding before and after above. This being said, it is important to note that the filling material may wear or chip more easily than a lab-made restoration such as a porcelain veneer or crown. Composite bonding will look its best for 3-7 years. As time goes on, they may grow duller, pick up staining or generally wear a little. In this case, you can choose to have the fillings recontoured, polished or replaced depending on the extent of your aesthetic concerns.
