Cosmetic Bonding in Camden and London

Composite Bonding in London is a popular cosmetic dental treatment used to improve the appearance of your teeth by doing minor dental work. At NW1 Dental Care, our team of dentists possesses expertise in performing composite bonding procedures for patients all over Camden, London, and its nearby areas. It remains one of our most popular procedures with patients who want to improve the appearance of their teeth in a conservative manner without causing too much damage to your budget.

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic Bonding also referred to as ‘Composite Bonding’ or ‘Teeth Bonding’ or ‘Dental Bonding’  is one of the simplest restorative procedures that can make a significant difference to your smile. With this bonding treatment, you can transform damaged, chipped, broken, stained or teeth with unsightly gaps into beautiful pearly whites that dazzle. In this procedure, a tooth-coloured composite resin (like a white filling) is applied and hardened with a special high intensity curing light on the patient’s teeth to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured or discoloured tooth. The procedure is called bonding because the material bonds to the tooth. It not only helps to improve the appearance of your teeth or closes unsightly gaps but it also provides support for your teeth.

Cosmetic bonding often requires a single visit to your cosmetic dentist. It takes around one hour and unlike crowns and veneers which are manufactured in a laboratory, composite bonding doesn’t normally require any preparation and can be done without any need for anaesthetic. The materials we use for this allow us to blend colours specific to each patient so we can produce a result that looks not only amazing but natural. Bonding treatment is also a much more cost-effective, versatile, and less invasive alternative to dental veneers, lumineers, crown because it can be repaired, altered, and re-done at any time.

Who can consider Cosmetic Bonding?

Dental Composite or Teeth Bonding is an ideal solution for people looking for instant cosmetic results for teeth that are otherwise healthy. This treatment can be used to resolve the following dental issues :

  • Repair decayed teeth (Cavities filled with white fillings)
  • Repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Improve the overall appearance of discoloured teeth
  • To change the shape of your teeth
  • To increase the length of short teeth
  • To close unsightly gaps between teeth
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • To protect a part of a tooth root that gets exposed when gums recede

However please note that if your smile is crooked because of problems with your bite and jawline this treatment won’t correct it. The dentist would determine the suitability of this treatment for your condition and if you would require a more in-depth or alternate solution
