There are many reasons a patient would choose a composite bonding treatment over other dental options. One of those reasons would be if you have healthy teeth but also have a slight misalignment, misshapen teeth, or crooked teeth that are also in need of whitening. We can use the composite material to make your teeth appear straighter and whiten the teeth too. If you were to opt for braces, you would still need a teeth whitening procedure once your teeth had been straightened.
Whilst braces are still an excellent option, they aren't able to change the shape of the individual teeth. However, using the tooth-coloured composite resin, we're able to alter the shape of teeth, filling in gaps and making damaged teeth appear whole. Even teeth that have suffered permanent damage can be fixed using the material, making them appear healthier.
The speed of the treatment and the fact that it is a non-invasive treatment is a huge bonus for a lot of clients. The quick procedure and streamlined process will require you to make minimal visits to our facility and you'll be able to achieve stunning results in a single day. For those with busy lives, spending time attending appointments and attempting to integrate a treatment such as braces into their daily lives can be extremely stressful.
It is also likely that if you have misaligned teeth, that you won't want to wait a long period of time to have the issue corrected. As the treatment can be applied in a single day, you can enjoy the results in a matter of hours, compared to the several months it may take for other treatments. It also takes minimal time out of your busy schedule and ensures you can get that much-needed confidence boost as a result of having a stunning smile, much quicker.
Composite dental bonding is also a reversible procedure, meaning that you can decide to have the composite resin material removed at any time. This is different to porcelain veneers, however, as the tooth is permanently changed to have the porcelain material fitted. Whilst the composite material won't last forever, it's still a great cost-effective choice for treatment, without the life-long commitment.
If you have discoloured teeth but they are predominantly healthy, you may want to retain your natural teeth and simply have the treatment to achieve better-looking teeth. Stained teeth can damage your confidence and make the act of smiling scary for some. By having coloured resin material cover up these stains on your teeth, you can enjoy smiling, knowing your teeth are looking their best.
