Cosmetic bonding is a fast and convenient dental restoration technique to enhance the appearance of stained, irregular or chipped teeth. The treatment can also be used to reduce gaps between teeth for great results and a beautiful smile in just one sitting.
Tooth-coloured composite resin is applied to the outer surface of the front teeth. When it hardens, the resin is shaped to improve the form and appearance of visible teeth.
Cosmetic bonding has the advantage of being minimally invasive, requiring little preparation of the tooth surface. The procedure is also generally undertaken without the need for an anaesthetic and in one appointment.
Your dentist will start by lightly roughening the surface of the front teeth to be treated. The tooth-coloured composite resin is then applied to the tooth. The resin bonds to the surface and hardens in a short time under a special dental light. The composite bonding material is then shaped to give an even form and appearance as well as reduce gaps between teeth.
To complete the treatment, your dentist will polish the surface to match the surrounding teeth as closely as possible. Cosmetic bonding is a relatively short procedure with reliable results.
A composite bonding treatment can generally last several years, with the correct care. Damage such as cracking or chipping can occur just like with like natural teeth. We advise patients having a cosmetic bonding treatment to avoid biting on hard foods such as ice, nuts and sweets.
The advantage of cosmetic bonding is that it can be repaired or replaced if needed.
