No matter how minor a defect in your tooth is, you’ll know it’s there. When you see your smile in a mirror or in a photo, chances are the first thing you’ll notice is ‘that’ crack, chip, or imperfection. If you have several of these dental issues, it makes it even worse.

Cosmetic bonding is one very effective way to repair defects in your teeth. The procedure is very straightforward, and the results are outstanding. In fact, nobody will even notice you’ve had the work done, your smile will just look amazing.

So, what exactly is cosmetic bonding, and what should you expect from the procedure?

Let’s take a look at this astounding procedure and how it can restore your smile.

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding might be a treatment you’re unfamiliar with. It’s perhaps one of the simplest and more elegant procedures available.

Sometimes referred to as ‘tooth bonding’ or ‘composite bonding’, cosmetic bonding uses a composite resin to reshape and improve the appearance of your teeth.

The procedure is carried out by a highly-skilled dentist, and once in place, your smile won’t just look great, but your teeth will be protected from further damage.

What Issues Can Cosmetic Bonding Treat?

This versatile procedure can treat lots of different dental problems, including:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Teeth that have worn down
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Small teeth
  • Slightly misaligned teeth

In all of these cases, building up the tooth using composite resin can restore the appearance of your smile.

How Straightforward Is The Cosmetic Bonding Procedure?

Cosmetic bonding is one of the most straightforward dental procedures available. Before we begin your treatment, we’ll examine your teeth to ensure that cosmetic bonding suits you.

Once we’ve identified the areas we’ll address, we’ll apply the composite resin. At this stage, the resin is malleable, and we’ll sculpt it skillfully on your tooth to correct your specific defects.

After we’re happy with how the resin looks on your tooth, we’ll harden it. To do this, we’ll use a special UV light. This won’t hurt, and it doesn’t take long.

Before we finish, we’ll gently tidy up the edges of your tooth to ensure everything is nice and smooth. The results are instantly visible, and you can enjoy your smile immediately.

Because cosmetic bonding is minimally invasive and is pain and discomfort-free, there’s usually no need for any anaesthetic during your treatment.

The length of the procedure depends on the number of teeth receiving treatment; however, the length of your appointment is typically relatively short. The great thing is that you can have an entire makeover in one sitting using cosmetic bonding.

What Are the Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding might not get the limelight like other treatments such as veneers or teeth whitening, but it certainly has plenty of benefits. We know that you’ll love this treatment because:

  • It’s completely pain-free — you might not even need an anaesthetic
  • The procedure is short
  • There’s no downtime for recovery
  • The results look natural
  • Cosmetic bonding fixes several flaws at once
  • Composite bonding is a cost-effective treatment
