If you chip a tooth it can look unsightly, but it can also increase the risk of more damage in the future. Thankfully, we have amazing restorative options available to restore your smile and reduce the risk of injury further down the line.
We offer a range of restorative and cosmetic treatments for chipped, broken and decayed teeth and one of the best solutions for chipped teeth is composite bonding. This treatment is fast, effective and inexpensive and the best news is that it is completely painless.
Composite bonding is a procedure used to enhance the aesthetic of the smile, but it also has restorative benefits. This is an ideal solution for chipped and worn teeth.
The actual procedure takes around one hour and there is no need for anaesthetic prior to treatment, as there is no pain involved.
Your dentist will use their skill to carefully mould dental composite, a material, which has a putty-like consistency, to repair the chips and build up the tooth structure. Once the composite is in the correct place and your dentist is happy with the result, they will use a curing light to set the composite. This process takes just a few seconds and there is no pain involved; you will be asked to wear glasses to protect your eyes at this point.
Could composite bonding benefit me?
If you have a chipped tooth or your teeth or worn or discoloured, composite bonding may be an ideal choice. Bonding is a simple, painless and quick treatment, which costs much less than veneers and the results are amazing. Despite the fact that the changes made to each tooth are minor, the overall impact is really impressive and treatment can have incredible benefits for the look of your smile, as well as your confidence.
