Composite Dental Bonding – A brief introduction
In simple words, composite dental bonding can be described as bonding tooth coloured material to the tooth to improve its overall appearance in terms of shape, size and colour. Unlike dental crowns and veneers, this one requires only a single visit to your dentist. Moreover, when the cost is concerned, this procedure is much reasonably priced compared to that of any other cosmetic dentistry treatment. Unlike many other dental procedures, this one causes minimal damage to your natural teeth to give amazing results.
The procedure is a tried and tested way to improve the appearance of your teeth and is assured to deliver great results.
Composite dental bonding does not require any major preparation for the tooth. It is gradually rising in popularity among other cosmetic dentistry procedures all over the world including London. At Smile Clinic London, we have technically sound and experienced dentists with an excellent track record in the successful handling of dental bonding cases.
How dental composite bonding can be helpful
Dental composite bonding proves helpful on several occasions including the following –
Repair a chipped or cracked tooth
Improve the length of a tooth that is too short
Sort out the problem of gapped teeth
Protecting the tooth surface when it has become exposed to the problem of receding gums
Boost the overall appearance of discoloured or stained teeth
The procedure of composite dental bonding
The composite bonding procedure starts with taking high-quality photos of your teeth. The dentist will discuss with you in detail to inform you about the treatment and what to expect. Based on the discussion and the condition of your teeth the dentist formulates your unique treatment plan. The most crucial objective in this treatment is to improve the aesthetics of the teeth along with improving their overall functionality. After the treatment plan is drawn, the dentist will go through the task of selecting the exact match for the colour or shade of your teeth so that your bonded tooth or teeth look real and do not stand out from the natural ones in sharp contrast.Book an Appointment 020 7139 8611
Preparing the tooth surface
A little preparation is required to ensure the composite material bonds well with the tooth surface. Thus an etching material or agent is placed on the tooth surface. As a part of the procedure, a minuscule amount of the tooth enamel is scraped away as the tooth is cleaned and polished. After these steps are over, composite bonding resin for the teeth is added and moulded to the tooth.
A special type of blue light is used to get the composite material hardened faster. Once the bonding material gets hardened, the tooth is polished carefully to give the exact shape. It is of utmost importance to match the dental composite bonding perfectly with the shade of your teeth to make it look natural. This procedure is completely painless, neither causes any discomfort; thus patients are not administered with local anaesthesia to numb their sensation. Depending on the number of teeth you want to bond, the procedure may last anywhere between 1 and 3 hours.
Risk factors and treatment aftercare
This conservative cosmetic dentistry procedure is pretty reasonably priced to fit into every budget easily. It is relevant mentioning that the filling material is more prone to get chipped or worn down compared to the restorations that are made in the dental labs – like crowns and porcelain veneers. As far as composite bonding is concerned, average life span of the treatment varies between 3 and 7 years. It may also pick up stains, become dull or wear down in the course of time. However, you can easily get your filling polished, retouched or even replaced at any time depending on the level of your aesthetic concern.
