Would you like to change the colour or shape of your teeth, without damaging them? Would you like to do this in a minimally invasive way and in a single visit?
Composite tooth bonding is a versatile treatment which offers significant financial savings over conventional porcelain laminate veneers. The treatment is minimally invasive and could change your smile in a single visit to your dentist here at Highworth Dental Care.
A Mini Smile Makeover
Using a material called composite resin our dentists can restore a broken edge, lighten teeth, improve tooth proportions or even redesign your entire smile.
Did you know that:
- Composite tooth bonding can be used to hide the gaps between your teeth
- Composite tooth bonding can cover the chips and cracks in your teeth
- Composite resin is a great alternative to silver amalgam fillings
- Composite resin can be used to form practically any shape and modified to match the colour of your teeth
Here are a few of the ways in which composite tooth bonding can help restore your smile.
If you have a crack in one your teeth, composite resin can be used to prevent the
crack extending and strengthen the tooth. The resin material can also minimise the appearance of cracks, especially tiny cracks that may be extensive causing some discolouration.
Tooth chips can happen for a variety of reasons and are fairly common. Composite tooth bonding is an excellent choice for repairing chipped teeth. The application of composite resin can restore the tooth, prevent further damage, and create an even look all in a single visit.
Close gaps between teeth
If you wish to close a single gap between teeth, composite tooth bonding can be the perfect solution. Using composite resin our skilled dentists can build out the teeth on either side of the gap to effectively close the gap. However, if the gap is very wide or if you have multiple gaps in your smile we may recommend Invisalign or veneers instead.
Repair Tooth Cavities
Composite resin is a popular choice for tooth coloured fillings as it is indistinguishable from the actual tooth after placement unlike amalgam (silver) fillings.
Protect Exposed Tooth Roots
If you have receding gums, composite resin can help cover the exposed tooth roots and prevent sensitivity. The result is very natural and virtually invisible. However, if gum disease is found to be the cause of your gum recession, it’s important to address this with your dentist before choosing composite tooth bonding.
So there you have it, composite tooth bonding can help improve your smile in many ways. To find out more about treatment speak to your dentist or call our friendly team.
