Composite Bonding in Dumbarton

Enhance Your Smile with a Quick and Effective Solution

At CHURCH STREET DENTAL PRACTICE, we offer composite bonding, a cosmetic dental procedure that can transform your smile in a quick and non-invasive way. If you have chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth, composite bonding can be an excellent solution to restore the beauty of your smile.

What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to the surface of the teeth. This resin is shaped and polished to match the color and contour of your natural teeth, creating a smooth and seamless appearance.

The composite resin used in this procedure is made of a mixture of plastic and glass materials. This material can be molded and sculpted to improve the shape, size, and color of your teeth, covering up any flaws or imperfections.

Why Choose Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is an excellent option for anyone looking to improve the appearance of their smile quickly and easily. Some of the benefits of this procedure include:

What to Expect During the Procedure?

The composite bonding procedure is simple and straightforward. First, our dentist will select a shade of composite resin that matches the color of your natural teeth. Next, the surface of your teeth will be prepared, and a bonding agent will be applied to help the resin adhere to your teeth.

Then, the composite resin will be applied to the surface of your teeth, molded and sculpted into the desired shape. Once the resin is in place, our dentist will use a special light to harden the material, and then polish it to a smooth finish.

After the procedure, you can resume your regular activities right away. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures for a few days, but this should subside quickly.

Take a 6-inch piece of floss and a floss threader, place one end of the floss between your fingers and the other end in the threader, then wriggle the floss between two of your front bottom teeth. Gently raise and lower the floss as it runs along the sides of the teeth from their tops to where they contact the gums while it is in between the teeth. Avoid using excessive force to avoid cutting or harming your gums. Move the floss to the top of the teeth once you’ve finished with one set of teeth, then slide it to the next set.

Maintaining Your Results

Composite bonding is a durable and long-lasting solution to improve the appearance of your smile. However, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing regularly, and visiting our dental practice for routine check-ups and cleanings.

Avoid biting or chewing on hard objects, such as ice or pens, as this can damage the composite resin. Additionally, you should avoid foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, as the resin can become discolored over time.
