While discolouration turns the natural whiteness of a tooth’s surface into a variety of undesirable colours, chips and gaps can develop that make the smile unpleasant to look at. Composite bonding in London is an effective way to enhance the cosmetic appeal of a smile spoiled by minor imperfections. It uses tooth-coloured materials to restore the natural shape and appearance of the teeth at the front of a person’s mouth, the ones most noticeable when smiling and laughing. The specially formulated composite substance is applied in a way that disguises chips, gaps, and other unwanted features.

How does composite bonding work?

Often, composite bonding in London can be carried out in a single visit to a dental practice such as Adams Dental. This innovative procedure rarely requires much removal of the existing dental surface. The composite substance is blended in a way that mimics the patient’s natural dental colouring. This results in an impressive and harmonious aesthetic improvement.

After selecting the most suitable shade of composite, the dentist carefully applies it to the patient’s teeth. It is then meticulously shaped so that unwanted imperfections are covered up and smoothed over for a natural finish. A special light is then applied to the teeth, which hardens the composite. The patient is then free to enjoy their new smile.
