Do you have concerns about the appearance of your teeth?

The impact that dissatisfaction with the appearance of your teeth can have on your self-esteem should not be underestimated.

Thankfully, you don’t have to put up with this for long. Visiting a dentist for composite bonding Harley Street can really transform your smile in a non-invasive and time-efficient way. In fact, you may only need to visit your dentist once to get the results you’re hoping for.


What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding involves using a plastic-like resin that hardens under ultraviolet light and can be used to change the shape, size and colour of the teeth. Your dentist will be able to choose a resin that is a similar shade to your teeth so that, when it is applied, it doesn’t look different to the rest of the enamel on your teeth. It is called composite bonding because the resin bonds with the teeth it is being applied to and the result is a natural-looking smile.


Why should I consider composite bonding?

Two of the great advantages of choosing this treatment is that it is a procedure that has minimal discomfort and takes little time to carry out. It is also a versatile option as it can be used to close gaps between teeth, treat minor rotations of the teeth as well as disguise any discolouration you may have on the front teeth. Your teeth will not be damaged in any way when the resin is being applied so you don’t need to worry about the safety of the procedure.

Although composite bonding may not last as long as veneers, which also help with the issues you may be considering this treatment for, it is much more cost-effective and can always be repeated in the future if required. Bonded teeth are also easy to take care of. You should avoid biting your nails – maybe start treating yourself to manicures instead – and brush and floss regularly. Using mouthwash after this is the only other care that is required to keep them squeaky clean and looking good!


Would this be the right treatment for me?

Every patient’s needs are different so there is no hard and fast rule to say that this is definitely the treatment for you. The best way to find out if composite bonding is the treatment you need is to book a consultation with a dentist who offers this treatment.

You can then ask as many questions as you like as well as discuss what you hope to achieve from your treatment. Once you have a treatment plan drawn up, you can get started on getting the smile you deserve to have and not shy away from it!
