Dental Bonding In Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham
Treat Cracked, Chipped Or Discoloured Teeth Or Need a Dental Bonding Treatment
Are you unhappy with your smile? Are you conscious of gaps between your teeth? Do you want a cost-effective smile makeover in one visit without drills or injections?
If your answer to any of the above is yes, then dental bonding also commonly referred to as composite bonding can help improve your smile.
Cosmetic dental bonding involves building composite resin directly onto your tooth, covering light damage, closing small gaps or completely rebuilding teeth. Made from a combination of plastic and glass, composite can perfectly mimic tooth enamel and can be matched to your existing tooth colour to blend seamlessly into your smile.

What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that uses a tooth-coloured resin material to improve the appearance and function of teeth. The treatment involves bonding the composite resin material to the surface of the tooth using a special light that activates the bonding agent.
This procedure is typically used to fix minor dental problems such as small chips, gaps, discolouration, and misshapen teeth. Dental bonding can also be used to replace old metal fillings with a more natural-looking composite material.
The procedure is relatively simple and can usually be completed in one appointment with your dentist. Your dentist first cleans and prepares the tooth surface, then applies the bonding material in layers, sculpting it to the desired shape. The material is then hardened with a special curing light and polished to match the surrounding teeth.
One of the benefits of dental bonding is that it is a non-invasive procedure that does not require the removal of healthy tooth structure. This makes it a popular alternative to more invasive treatments such as veneers and crowns. Additionally, dental bonding is a relatively affordable treatment option compared to other similar cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Composite Edge Bonding
Edge bonding is commonly used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, as well as to close gaps between teeth, reshape teeth, or cover stains or discolouration. It can also be used to change the shape or length of teeth, or to protect the exposed root surfaces of teeth that have receded due to gum disease.
The process of edge bonding typically takes between thirty minutes to an hour per tooth, depending on the complexity of the case. Your dentist first prepares the tooth by roughening the surface and applying a conditioning liquid to help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. Next, the composite resin is applied in layers and sculpted to the desired shape. Finally, a special curing light is used to harden the material, and the tooth is polished to give it a natural, smooth appearance.
One of the advantages of dental edge bonding is that it is a minimally invasive procedure that can often be completed without the need for anaesthesia. The bonding material is also very strong and durable, and can last for many years with proper care.
