As an aesthetics clinic in York, you may be surprised to hear that we offer a range of cosmetic dental treatments to our clients, alongside popular procedures such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatment. Today, we’ll focus on a fantastic way to elevate your smile: composite bonding. Find out about this wonder treatment – and its many benefits – in today’s blog post.
So, what is composite bonding?
It’s a way to enhance the appearance of your teeth for a more aesthetically-pleasing smile. Our clients love the way it can improve their smile while boosting their confidence – and the result is a natural-looking enhancement, rather than a fake or plastic-looking appearance.
What does composite bonding involve?
It’s a treatment we offer here at our York aesthetics clinic. You can expect an in-depth consultation – as with any of our other treatments – to ensure it’s the right choice for you. And then, if you’re comfortable to go ahead and the treatment is suitable, we’ll progress to the treatment stage. Here, we’ll apply a putty-like material to your teeth that’s shaped, and then hardened under a special light. It dries in a matter of minutes, and you’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities.
Is composite bonding painful?
No, most of our York patients don’t describe the treatment as painful, though it can feel strange at the time. We always aim to keep any pain or discomfort to a minimum – whatever treatment we offer. Additionally, no pre-treatment is needed to prepare the teeth and it’s considered much kinder than veneers and other procedures, which involve a gentle filing of the teeth beforehand.
How long does composite bonding last?
Assuming you take good care of your smile (no smoking, no bad habits like pen chewing or cracking nuts, and appropriate oral care), you can expect your tooth-bonding results to last for several years. However, you will need to repeat the treatment at a future date.
What else can I try for my smile?
Composite bonding can be carried out at our York aesthetics clinic alongside other cosmetic and restorative treatments to create a full smile makeover. For example, you can have Invisalign braces to straighten, teeth whitening to brighten, and composite bonding to correct.
