Cosmetic bonding enhances the appearance of your teeth and is a fast procedure that involves minimal preparation for your natural teeth. The procedure involves the usage of the same material found in standard white fillings, which are designed to match your natural teeth. Through cosmetic bonding, your dentist can fix staining, small gaps between the teeth, and also chipping in a single appointment.
It is recommended to brush and floss your teeth as usual, but avoid biting on hard foods or objects such as fingernails and pen caps. However, cosmetic bonding does stain on the surface if you consume coloured beverages, wine or tobacco products. Regularly booking appointments with a hygienist can take care of removing the surface stains.
Cosmetic bonding can last depending on the location of the restoration of the tooth as well as chewing, biting and eating habits. For example, patients who have cosmetic bonding on their front teeth should avoid biting into any kind of food that can damage the structural soundness of the tooth restoration.
On average, cosmetic bonding can last for 4-8 years depending on the above factors.
Never felt so relaxed at the dentist before, friendly, welcoming staff who provide an efficient service
I had a fulling and extraction carried out in the same appointment. It was all carried out very professionally and am very happy with the service
Absolutely fabulous! Very nervous customer but was kindly put at ease and supported throughout. Excellent customer care - would gladly go again rather than put off. Thank you!
Excellent, Ashmi and Sophie were so good. I am quite a nervous patient, but was continuously at ease by Ashmi running through the procedure before, during and after. Thank you.
