Cosmetic dentistry can transform smiles and lives. However many traditional cosmetic techniques can lead to healthy teeth being sacrificed in the pursuit of beauty. Destructive cosmetic dentistry is easy but creating beautiful smiles conservatively is an art. Using bonding techniques here at Alverna House we can transform smiles and teeth whilst wherever possible respecting their long term health. We achieve this by using the latest in adhesive dentistry techniques, tooth whitening and cosmetic orthodontics.
Composite bonding is becoming increasingly popular, as it is one of the least invasive cosmetic treatments and can deliver life-changing results in a single visit.
The colour of the material is matched to the colour of your other teeth and is bonded directly onto the tooth surface. It can be shaped or contoured to match the surrounding teeth or alter the shape, depending on your needs. In this way, prominent or overlapping teeth can be reshaped and recontoured painlessly.
We can discuss all your cosmetic options to eliminate imperfections in your teeth and enable you to smile with confidence.
The procedure should take between 30 to 60 minutes. However, if you’re having more than one tooth treated it may take a little longer. As we only use the latest high-quality bonding materials, you can expect your composite bonding work to last for 5-7 years, depending on how you look after it, your diet and your bite. Sometimes it can last even longer.
