In recent years, white filling materials have become stronger and look more natural, making them a very viable option to improve the cosmetic appearance and restore teeth. Dental bonding is considered a dental art, as it requires an in depth knowledge of the layers, colour, shape and characteristics of the front teeth. Sometimes dental bonding is performed after tooth whitening and/or dental orthodontics to improve the alignment and colour of the front teeth. The biggest benefit of dental bonding is that no tooth preparation is required, so you can get a smile makeover without drilling and injections.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding involves artistically building up teeth with highly aesthetic white filling materials to restore or improve the shape and sometimes shade of teeth.
What can dental bonding do?
Dental Bonding can be used for a wide variety of uses, normally around the front teeth, which are visible when you smile. Dental bonding can be used to close gaps, re-build worn down teeth, repair chips or broken teeth and cover discolouration’s. Have a look at some cases Dr Dev Patel has completed using Dental Bonding.
Bonding is performed by a dentist, so there is no involvement of dental laboratories, which means they are normally during one appointment. Due to the artistic nature of the procedure the treatment time will be longer than normal white fillings, to ensure the bonding is executed with perfection.
