Dental Bonding

Smile With Confidence Again

Dental bonding, also known as composite bonding, is a cosmetic dental treatment that fixes chips and cracks in the teeth to help prevent further damage and decay. It can also help with unsightly gaps between the teeth. Fixing even small chips is important to ensure dental longevity and good overall oral health.

How Does Dental Bonding Work? Five Steps To Your New Smile

  • Your dentist will first assess your oral health and decide whether you are suitable for the treatment.
  • Next, they will roughen the surface of the teeth slightly to allow the resin to grip better.
  • They will then apply an intermediary liquid onto the tooth surface before placing the resin over the top.
  • Finally, your dentist will shape the resin to match the neighboring teeth.
  • Once your dentist is happy that the shape is right, they will use UV light to harden the resin, completing the procedure.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Bonding?

  • Dental bonding is quick, and does not usually require anaesthesia.
  • It’s very effective at preventing further damage and decay in teeth, and can last for many years. The treatment’s longevity means it’s also a cost-effective solution.
  • There are no side effects involved. There is no way for the treatment to cause the patient pain, as the process only adds to the tooth, rather than taking anything away.
  • Dental bonding does not require intrusive dental work like drilling or extraction.
  • Bonding is bespoke, fitted directly to your teeth and shaped to match perfectly.
  • It is a same-day procedure, meaning patients can leave the office and enjoy their day with a brand new smile!
