To rebuild teeth or cover light damage, we can use composite bonding. Composite, a special dental resin, can be built directly onto your tooth, without needing to remove a layer of enamel. It can be colour-matched to your natural tooth colour and is able to mimic tooth enamel, ensuring it looks and functions just like your other teeth.
Our skilled restorative dentists accurately build up the shape of the tooth from scratch, improving the appearance of your smile and making it seem as if there was no damage present in the first place. The treatment is quick and can be done in one appointment.
We will start by cleaning and drying your tooth, before preparing it with a special acidic gel. This creates a rough surface for the composite to properly bond to.
We will apply the composite material in layers, gradually building up the shape. We will then harden it in the final shape using a special blue light.
We will then polish the composite so it looks just like a natural tooth and fits perfectly into your smile.
Composite is not affected by bacteria and decay but the natural tooth underneath is, so it is important to keep up with your regular brushing and flossing routine at home to keep your tooth lasting as long as possible.
At Dartford Road Dental we believe that quality dental care should be affordable to as many patients as possible. We can split the cost of certain treatments up to five years.
