Are you looking to transform your smile and regain your confidence? At our dental practice in Ely, we offer a revolutionary cosmetic dental procedure known as composite tooth bonding. Glamour magazine concurred stating ‘to say the treatment is revolutionary would be an understatement’. They particularly appreciated that the smile transformation can often be done within one afternoon. Tooth bonding can deal with chipped, cracked, or discoloured teeth, and it could be the smile solution you’ve been searching for.

What is tooth bonding?

Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves applying a tooth-coloured composite resin material to the surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. This versatile treatment can address various dental imperfections. Overall, composite bonding offers a non-invasive and effective solution for improving the aesthetics of your smile.

Why choose composite bonding?

Patients opt for tooth bonding for several reasons. Firstly, it offers a quick and cost-effective solution for enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Unlike more invasive procedures like dental veneers or crowns, bonding typically requires minimal tooth preparation, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.

Secondly, tooth bonding is a versatile treatment that can address a wide range of cosmetic concerns in just one visit to our dental practice. Whether you’re looking to correct a single chipped tooth or transform your entire smile, composite bonding can achieve remarkable results in a relatively short amount of time.

Advantages of composite bonding

Composite tooth bonding offers numerous benefits, including improved aesthetics, enhanced self-confidence, and restored dental function. Whether you’re looking to repair a minor imperfection or completely transform your smile, tooth bonding can help you achieve the beautiful, radiant smile you deserve.

Natural-looking results: Composite resin mimics the natural colour and translucency of your teeth, delivering aesthetically pleasing results that blend seamlessly with your smile.

Non-invasive: Unlike some other cosmetic treatments, composite bonding doesn’t require the removal of healthy tooth structure. It’s a conservative approach that preserves your natural teeth.

Quick and convenient: In most cases, composite bonding can be completed in a single appointment, saving you time, and reducing the need for multiple visits to the dentist.

Versatile: Composite bonding can be used to address a wide range of dental issues, including chipped teeth, gaps, discoloration, and misshapen teeth.

Minimal discomfort: Patients typically experience little to no discomfort during the procedure, and there’s no downtime for recovery.

Cost-effective: Compared to other cosmetic dental treatments, composite bonding is an affordable option for improving your smile.

Disadvantages of composite bonding

Durability: While composite bonding is durable, it may not be as long-lasting as options like porcelain veneers. Over time, the material can stain or chip, requiring maintenance or replacement.

Staining: Composite resin is susceptible to staining from certain foods and beverages, as well as smoking. To maintain a bright, uniform smile, you may need to avoid or limit these staining agents.

Repairable, not reversible: While composite bonding is not a permanent alteration to your teeth, removing the resin is not a reversible process. This means that maintenance or replacement may be necessary over time.

Artistry required: Achieving the best results with composite bonding depends on the skill and artistry of your dentist. Choosing an experienced practitioner is crucial and that’s where we come in!

What does composite bonding treatment involve?

The tooth bonding procedure is straightforward and typically performed in a single appointment. First, our experienced dentist will select a shade of composite resin that closely matches the colour of your natural teeth for seamless blending. Next, the tooth’s surface will be carefully prepared by etching or roughening it to ensure proper adhesion of the bonding material.

Once the tooth is prepared, the composite resin will be applied and sculpted to achieve the desired shape and contour. Our skilled dentist will then use a special light to harden the resin, bonding it securely to the tooth’s surface. Finally, any final adjustments will be made to ensure a comfortable bite and a flawless appearance.

Looking after your restored tooth

Composite is invulnerable to bacteria and decay, but the natural tooth underneath isn’t. Great oral hygiene at home will keep your tooth lasting for as long as possible.

You may require maintenance on these restorations, particularly if you like to drink tea or coffee or enjoy other food and drinks that stain your teeth. This can easily be monitored at your regular check-ups.
