Cosmetic Bonding

There's nothing more valuable than a smile. It reflects healthy self-esteem, confidence, and openness to the world around you. 

But what if you're someone who shies away from smiling due to insecurities? Do you wish that you could amplify your smile without undergoing years of dental work and potentially irreversible removal of tooth structure? 

If so, then cosmetic bonding may be for you! 

 

What Is Cosmetic Bonding? 

Cosmetic bonding lets you achieve the smile of your dreams in usually one visit. Through a simple procedure, your smile can instantly be transformed within hours. 

While people once relied on crowns and veneers, cosmetic bonding is becoming more and more popular with people all over the world - and for a good reason too. 

Cosmetic bonding helps to fill in chips and gaps with synthetic resin naturally. It helps with various issues, such as discolored teeth, gaps and length issues. Unlike a crown, composite bonding involves using a color similar to the tooth, helping the overall look appear natural. 

Cosmetic bonding can change the shape, size and color of your smile, making it the perfect solution for people looking for noticeable improvement. 

 

How Does Cosmetic Dental Bonding Work? 

After a thorough consultation, your dentist will decide the resin color they should use. All decay will be removed to ensure a sanitized and ready base. 

After your teeth are clean, a special liquid is applied that allows the resin to adhere to it.  The dentist then forms the dentin into natural-looking tooth anatomy.

 

How Long Does Cosmetic Bonding Last? 

The great thing about cosmetic bonding is that the treatment lasts between 5 and 10 years. After this time, you should visit your dentist for any required touch-ups or replacements. This keeps your smile looking healthy, clean and brand new. 

 

Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding not only looks great but has countless other benefits, too! It can help with the following issues:

  • Chips: Cosmetic bonding uses resin to conceal chips, making your teeth appear undamaged and natural. 

  • Gaps: Instead of waiting for months and years to fix dental gaps, cosmetic bonding lets you close these spaces in one procedure. 

  • Tooth discoloration: Cosmetic bonding helps camouflage tooth discoloration. 

  • Tooth length and shape: You can change the shape and length of your teeth through this groundbreaking procedure. 

The overall treatment is very quick and safe, leading to a healthier and happier smile. Composite bonding can be a more affordable solution than other costly dental procedures. 

 

Is Cosmetic Bonding Right for You? 

Before going ahead with any dental procedure, it's essential to ensure it's right for you. 

Composite bonding benefits people who want to enhance their smile due to chips in teeth, large gaps or mismatched lengths. It's a worthwhile treatment for people looking for a quick and safe solution to transforming their smile. 

Composite bonding isn't suitable for people who need to readjust their bite due to overjet or overbite issues. We recommend getting this fixed with orthodontics before booking your composite bonding consultation. 

Composite bonding may also not be suitable for you if there isn't enough material in your natural tooth to help shape your smile. 

This treatment is recommended for people looking for a more affordable solution to dental work than traditional veneers. So, if you're after a safe, quick and effective way to conceal gaps and improve your smile's overall shape and size, look no further than composite bonding. 

 

How to Care for Bonded Teeth 

Once you get your treatment done, taking aftercare seriously is essential to preserve your results. Here are some standard care tips to keep your new smile healthy and beautiful.

  • Brush and floss morning and night 

  • Avoid colored beverages such as coffee, tea and dark soda for the first week after treatment

  • Don't bite your nails 

  • Keep up with dental cleanings every six months

  • Avoid hard foods and candy 

  • Avoid smoking 

The better you care for your new smile, the longer your results will last.
