Cosmetic bonding can be used for a whole range of dental problems, including chips, cracks, discolouration, fixing small gaps and minor fractures.
The procedure is carried out by a trained dental practitioner, who uses aesthetic high end composite materials to correct dental imperfections.
Depending on the problem and the treatment required, you may not even need local anaesthetic for the procedure, as it is generally pain free.
Before treatment begins the dentist will clean your teeth and then prepare the outer surface of the tooth or teeth with an acidic gel to ensure the composite will properly adhere. The colour of your composite will be decided and matched to that of your natural teeth before treatment begins. The resin will be applied to the tooth and then hardened with a blue light to firmly set it.
Once this is done the composite will be polished and moulded into the shape of your natural tooth.
Cosmetic bonding can be completed in just one visit and is non-invasive and generally pain free. Unlike other restorative treatments the main structure of your teeth is left untouched, to ensure you retain all of your teeth's natural strength. Cosmetic bonding is also a reversible treatment, so if any problems do occur they can easily be rectified.
Cosmetic bonding is a completely safe treatment as long as it is performed by a well-qualified and competent dentist. At Cheadle Hulme Dental and Cosmetics we are lucky to have some of the best dentists around today. Cosmetic bonding is unsuitable for large dental cavities but other than that the risks are very few. If you have any concerns then our friendly and professional team will be happy to discuss them with you.
Cosmetic bonding is able to fill, shape and bond teeth in a single visit. The results produced look very natural and blend in well with tooth colour. Outer tooth surfaces can be repaired and a combination of treatments like bonding and veneers can create beautiful smiles. The results should last for up to ten years, though acts such as smoking can lessen life expectancy.
