Bonding is when a permanent white sticky filling material is used to change the shape of your front teeth. Small changes can make a huge cosmetic improvement and enhance the confidence of our patients.
- Minor chips and crack in front teeth
- Reshaping the front teeth
- Hiding stains on front teeth
- Replace your old discoloured fillings on your front teeth with cosmetic bonding
The simple answer is no. If you require a local anaesthetic we will ensure this is done gently. We have patients in our waiting room and we want you to go out and tell everyone, “that wasn’t as bad as I thought. The dentist was very gentle and looked after me well!”
Cosmetic bonding is essentially sticking a permanent white filling material to a tooth to enhance its shape or colour. White fillings average at £120 a tooth. The cosmetic bonding treatment may cost more or less, depending on the complexity of the case and the aesthetic outcome that the patient wishes to achieve. For advanced treatments, you may have the option to spread the cost with our 0% interest-free / low-cost finance payment option.
Depending on how many teeth need to be treated and the complexity of the case, the treatment can take anything between 30 minutes and 2 hours and is done in one day. You will leave the clinic with your new permanent smile! Don’t worry, the dentist will give you enough time to rest in between your treatment and our team will ensure that you’re comfortable at all times.
If you follow a good oral-hygiene routine, your teeth will be with you for many years to come. Good dental hygiene will extend the life of your teeth, so brush and floss regularly and visit the dentist for your regular check-ups.
If you have a tendency to clench or grind your teeth, your dentist may recommend that you wear a soft gum shield at night to cushion your teeth from excessive grinding forces whilst you sleep.
