Have you started to flinch when you look back at your teeth in the mirror?
Maybe you’ve never been fully happy with the shape or your smile, or there’s a small crack or chip that repeatedly catches your eye for the wrong reasons.
Composite bonding is a minimally invasive treatment that improves imperfections in your teeth and takes very little time to complete.
Achieve a natural aesthetic for your teeth
Everyone wants their teeth to look naturally beautiful, but the thought of a lengthy and complex treatment process can be a real barrier to entry. This is where composite bonding comes in.
This process uses tooth-coloured composite resin, which is bonded to your teeth. If you’ve chipped or fractured a tooth, the composite will cover this up, and be matched to your own tooth shade. The result is indistinguishable from your existing teeth, so no one will know you’ve actually got a piece of resin in place of real tooth enamel – it will look completely natural.
Composite bonding can also artificially straighten your teeth; we can look at making the front surfaces of your teeth line up, and close small gaps in your teeth that are stopping your smile from looking symmetrical.
All of this adds up to helping you to feel proud of your teeth, and able to smile without even having to think about it.
How does the composite bonding process compare with veneers?
Both treatments address cosmetic defects you dislike about your teeth. However, the composite bonding process is significantly easier to undergo. We can provide treatment in as little as an hour, and there is no need for us to shave down your tooth so that we can place the resins. This is the downside of veneers, which requires the removal of healthy tooth tissue.
I’m scared of the dentist – how can you help me have treatment?
The great news is that in most cases, we won’t need to use anaesthetic when we perform your treatment. There is also no drilling involved. However, if you are still quite anxious about the process, we can offer sedation, which will put you in a state of complete deep relaxation. Whilst you will still be awake and able to communicate with the dentist, you will feel completely unfazed by what is going on around you.
