Have you chipped or broken your teeth? Do you want to get back the natural smile you had but afraid of long hours in a dentist’s chair?
If you answer in the affirmative, then there is a perfect solution. Cosmetic bonding can restore your appearance in less than an hour.
Cosmetic dental bonding is a straightforward procedure that does not need to drill into your teeth. Using synthetic resin, a dentist recreates the broken portion of the tooth crown and makes it as good as new in a jiffy.
The advances in medical science are astounding and nowhere more so than in the art and science of dentistry.
Cosmetic bonding is a prime example of such technological advancement. It can be used in place of crowns and veneers and costs far less.
The procedure is painless and over in half an hour or a little more.
What are its steps? Let us share an inside look.
Your dental care provider would examine the chipped tooth. No x-ray is usually necessary unless there is suspicion of a cavity underneath that requires filling.
Next, he would clean and prepare your tooth for the process. A minute amount of the enamel is removed to create a rough surface the resin can adhere to easily. There is no need to use anesthesia and no feeling of pain either.
The fluid is applied; it’s a fluid that helps the resin to stick to the teeth surface.
The bonding resin is placed and slowly sculpted by the dentist. It has the consistency of clay and is shaped with a scalpel to match the contour of the missing portion exactly.
UV light is applied to the resin with a probe. The resin hardens immediately. After an hour or two, you can use the tooth as usual. It is best that you avoid chewing vigorously for a couple of hours.
The hardened resin is gently polished and looks exactly the same as the crown that broke off. Since the resin used matches the color of the tooth, there is almost no difference to the smile.
The entire treatment requires a single dentist visit lasting no more than an hour. Immediately after the procedure, you can resume your normal activities without any obstacles.
Cosmetic bonding can be used in many situations.
Chipped tooth – Did your teeth fall out partly when you fell off your bike? Cosmetic bonding is the perfect solution to rectify the problem.
Discolored tooth – If a front tooth is discolored, it cannot be very pleasant. Using cosmetic bonding, a dentist can set the problem right and restore your beautiful pearly whites to their glory.
Gaps – Teeth gaps or diastema can be unsightly and cause a lack of confidence. Using resin, a dental care professional can precisely cover the gap and provide a natural-looking smile.
None whatsoever. It is a cosmetic procedure that does not extract material from inside your mouth.
However, the resin that is used, though extremely hard, can never replace the natural enamel you were born with. Your teeth are very strong and resilient. No artificial substance can match its durability.
Therefore you have to be careful if you like to chew pencils or ice cubes. The resin would become chipped under such enormous stress, and the procedure would have to be repeated.
There is nothing special that you must do to take care of the composite bonding. Your normal oral care routine has to, however, be stringently followed. Lack of care is the principal reason for tooth falling out prematurely.
Brush teeth twice daily. Be careful and remove all debris during brushing. Make brushing a deliberate action and brush all of your teeth equally well.
Floss the area between your teeth once every day and remove trapped food. This has the potential to become a nest for bacterial growth.
Rinse your mouth with tepid warm water and, if possible, add a tiny bit of salt to it. This reduces bacterial infection in your mouth. Bacteria are the cause of cavity and decay.
There are numerous benefits of cosmetic bonding and almost no disadvantages.
Painless – There is no pain whatsoever. The dentist does not extract any material, and no anesthesia is used.
Child friendly – It is an ideal solution for younger patients who have cracked or chipped their teeth and are scared of a long visit to the dentist.
Speedy – Not many teeth procedures are over in a few minutes. Some treatments, viz teeth alignment, take many visits. Cosmetic bonding is over in an hour.
The cost of cosmetic bonding varies depending on the service provider. It can be around £300 to £350.
The average price charged is about £300-350 per tooth. At Natural Smiles, we offer the cheapest and most affordable rates compared to other dental care providers.
The change that cosmetic bonding brings is enormous. It is hard to be personable and charming when you cannot smile.
Make sure that your chipped teeth are treated at our clinic, and you would soon find your smile opening doors for you in your personal and professional life.
There is no reason at all to feel depressed and go through life with discolored or damaged front teeth. Our dentists atNatural Smiles would ensure that your billion-watt smile is back in place before you leave their chamber.
Teeth are extraordinarily strong. But it is usual to chip or break one in an accident. That does not mean you have no way to improve it.
Tooth bonding is the best way to take care of your tooth. It is swift and costs less than alternatives.
When done perfectly, cosmetic bonding can last years.
If you want to stop hiding your smile, it is time to go for cosmetic bonding.
