Improving your smile is easier than you think!
A beautiful smile in just one appointment!
Dental Bonding, along with Teeth Whitening, is the easiest way to improve and enhance your smile.
Carried out in just one appointment we can close small gaps, repair chips and cracks and cover stains and discolouration.
The procedure for Dental Bonding couldn’t be easier. White filling material is applied to the area and moulded into position. The material is pliable and easily shaped. It is then set hard with a blue light. The filling material is available in many different shades so will match in with your existing tooth colour.
What else can Bonding help with?
If you have chipped or cracked teeth, short teeth, small gaps in between your teeth or stained or discoloured teeth, then Bonding is great for you!
How long does it last?
Depending on the location of the bonding, the longevity is difficult to determine. Care needs to be taken once treatment has been completed as it can easily be flicked off.
Over time the material used for the bonding can discolour, especially if you are a smoker or drink excess amounts of tea and coffee. On average you can expect the Bonding to last approximately 3-5 years.
Are there other treatments that might be more suitable?
Porcelain Veneers are a great alternative to Dental Bonding. They fix all the conditions above but last a lot longer. Of course, as they are laboratory made and made from porcelain, they are more expensive than having Dental Bonding. On average you can expect Porcelain Veneers treatment to last at least 15 years or more depending on how you take care of them.
If you add up what you spend on Bonding over a 15 year period it would probably equal the same cost of having Porcelain Veneers so it might be something worth considering.
There are so many advantages to having Porcelain Veneers including:
- they will never stain.
- once bonded they are incredibly strong.
- you can change a vast array of problems with just dental treatment.
- they last a very long time.
