What is cosmetic teeth bonding?
This is a technique that has been used in cosmetic dentistry for many years and can transform your smile in just a single visit. The process involves the skilful/artistic use of the correct amount and colour of “dental composite”, which is a mouldable material with a paste-like consistency made from acrylic resins and a variety of fillers, depending on the type used. Bonding is used for a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, including:
- Filling dental cavities – “white fillings”
- Replacing metal or amalgam fillings
- Repairing broken and chipped teeth
- Closing gaps between teeth (diastamas)
- Reshaping teeth
- Smile makeovers - composite veneers (although porcelain veneers are the better option for this)
Can any dentist carry out bonding?
Yes. However, you must note that bonding requires a high level of artistic skill and not all dentists are equally skilled. Dr Afzal has underdtaken extensive postgraduate training in the field of dental bonding. Below is example of dental bonding / composite boning done by Dr Afzal.
