Cosmetic bonding uses a tooth-coloured composite resin bonded to your teeth to make them whiter and mask any chips or gaps.
The process is relatively simple. First, your dentist will carry out tooth whitening if it is needed. Your then dentist prepares your tooth for cosmetic bonding by roughening the surface. Most patients don’t need anaesthesia for this process. After ensuring that the resin matches your natural teeth, your dentist applies an adhesive to your tooth, followed by the resin.
To set the resin and bond it to your tooth, your dentist uses a special light that hardens it. To complete the process, your dentist shapes and polishes your tooth, creating a beautiful, natural smile.
You won’t need to take any extra steps to keep your cosmetic bonding clean. Floss and brush your teeth twice a day and see your dentist twice a year for cleanings.
To protect your cosmetic bonding from premature chipping or staining, avoid biting down on hard foods like sweets. If you drink staining liquids like tea or coffee, brush your teeth again directly after. Also, avoid using your teeth to open packages or loosen knots.
