Did You Know You Can Fill the Gaps Between Teeth?

shutterstock_314307803If you have gaps in your smile, you may have assumed that you’d have to have braces to close them. However, there is another option. If you have an unsightly gap, and you don’t want to wear braces, dental bonding could be just the ticket.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is also known as cosmetic or composite bonding. This painless cosmetic procedure is ideal for those who need minor correction for flaws, such as chips and worn surfaces, misshapen teeth and the odd gap between the teeth. Bonding involves using a material called dental composite to reshape the teeth and create a more attractive aesthetic. Bonding is a very versatile procedure, which can address a multitude of cosmetic imperfections without the need for anaesthetic or time-consuming treatment.
Dental composite is a putty-like substance, and its consistency enables dentists to shape and mould it to fill gaps, modify the shape of the teeth and build up worn surfaces. Once the composite has been placed, it is then set using a curing light, and any final adjustments are then made to make the smile look perfect.
Dental bonding takes just an hour, and it can make an incredible difference to the look of the smile. There’s no pain involved, so you don’t have to worry about having injections, and it’s a lot faster and cheaper than veneers and braces.
If you have gaps in your smile or you have chipped or uneven teeth or a misshapen tooth, dental bonding could provide you with an easy and affordable solution. Call us today to find out more and book an appointment.
