Dental bonding is an easy alternative for teeth restoration. Tooth Bonding can enhance the appearance and longevity of teeth that are damaged or discoloured. The blog explains the four dental issues that tooth bonding procedures can correct.

Tooth Bonding Procedure

The affected tooth is prepared before the procedure. To correct the teet’s shape removing a part of the enamel is necessary to attach the resin. Dental resin is available in a variety of shades. The dentist chooses the resin colour that matches your exact tooth’s shade. There is also various transparency, and we can utilise multiple shades to find the perfect match with the natural tooth.

After applying a conditioning fluid, the resin is attached to the tooth’s surface and hardened with the help of UV light. After the process, the tooth is shaped and carefully polished. This polishing method natural look similar to the tooth’s surface.

Tooth Bonding for Discoloured teeth

Tooth bonding is a perfect method to cover minor or large stains visible on teeth. The procedure requires a dentist to make sure the tooth is prepared for bonding material because this will allow the bonding material to connect with the teeth effectively. 

Tooth Bonding for Misshaped teeth

Although misshaped teeth can create an unbalanced smile, they may also cause problems with a bite if teeth aren’t in a position to be a perfect fit. Bonding is a well-known cosmetic procedure to make uneven teeth appear more uniform and create a pleasing smile.

Tooth bonding to correct gaps

The gaps between teeth could be small or large. These gaps can result in oral health issues, like decay or gum inflammation. The tooth bonding procedure can effectively seal the gaps and give you a wholesome smile.

Tooth Bonding for Bottom teeth alignment

Tooth bonding can also improve the lower teeth’s appearance. They can fix any bite issues or even correct chipped teeth. However, if a patient suffers from bruxism, the tooth bonding procedure is not an option as the composite resin isn’t robust enough to withstand the forces, and it could fracture.

Cost of Tooth Bonding in the UK

The price can vary between various dental practices. The average cost for cosmetic bonding in the UK is between £ 200 and 350 per tooth. It is more cost-effective and not invasive than porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, composite crowns, or veneers.
