Cosmetic bonding is an easy and fast way to enhance your smile in one appointment.

What is cosmetic bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a technique that can improve the appearance of stained, irregular or chipped teeth.

Tooth-coloured composite resin is applied to the outer surface of the front teeth. When it hardens, the material can be shaped to improve the form and appearance of teeth.

Cosmetic bonding can also be used to reduce gaps between teeth for a seamless and natural-looking smile.

Cosmetic bonding is minimally invasive, requiring little preparation. The treatment often requires no tooth removal and can be completed in one appointment, generally without the need for an anaesthetic.

What is the treatment for cosmetic bonding?

Your dentist will begin by lightly roughening the surface of the teeth to be treated. The composite resin is then applied to the tooth which bonds to the surface.

A special dental light hardens the resin in a short time. The composite bonding material can then be shaped to improve the form and appearance of teeth.

Your dentist will polish the surface to match the surrounding teeth. It is a relatively fast dental procedure with reliable results.

How long does cosmetic bonding last?

Composite bonding treatment generally lasts several years, with proper care. Damage such as cracking or chipping of the resin can occur through biting on hard food such as ice cubes, nuts and sweets. You should also avoid chewing nails or pens.

The advantage of cosmetic bonding is that it can be repaired or replaced as required.  Ask your dentist about Bespoke Trial Smiles. Find out how your teeth will look with your new smile.
