24 May Give your teeth a new lease of life
If you have cracked, chipped, stained, rotated or gapped teeth, it can be a bit dispiriting. You may hold back from smiling as often as you’d like or cover your mouth when you talk. Perhaps you feel shy about expressing yourself or even are afraid to get too close to someone because of your damaged teeth.
You may not realise this, but most of us have had or do have teeth that are damaged in some way. Not many of us go through the journey of life without taking a few hits to the body and the teeth are no exception – it’s nothing to feel embarrassed about.
But that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t like to give yourself a confidence boost by freshening up your smile. And the good news is, something can be done.
Composite bonding in London is one way that cosmetic dentists cover up those imperfections. Here at Dental Beauty Swanley in Swanley, we use white filling materials that blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. We use composite bonding in London to:
- Close small gaps
- Hide minor rotations
- Cover up chips, cracks and stains
- Change the shape of teeth
- Contour the teeth.
One of the great advantages of composite bonding compared to say, veneers, is that there is no damage to the surface of the tooth. A veneer requires the surface tooth enamel to be removed so it has a rough surface to bond to. With composite bonding in London, resin is applied and hardened with a special light, meaning you get to keep as much natural tooth material as possible.
Composite bonding can last up to 10 years if you take good care of your teeth: this means twice daily brushing and flossing, twice yearly trips to the dentist and dental hygienist and no subjecting your teeth to risking manoeuvres, such as using them to open a bottle, or playing hockey without a mouth guard.
If the worst does happen and your composite bonding comes loose, you can have repeated treatments without it having a damaging effect on your teeth.
It takes only one appointment to carry out composite bonding in London – come in for a free consultation and find out more.
