Who is composite bonding in Essex suitable for?

Composite bonding in Essex can help with a number of issues that may be affecting your smile such as concealing chips or cracks in your teeth, help with tooth discolouring, and change the shape of your teeth. This procedure is usually recommended if your teeth have suffered minor injuries and you have good overall oral health.

Composite Bonding Benefits:

Composite bonding has many benefits, and it can fix a range of issues including discolouration, chipped teeth, and crooked teeth. Composite Bonding Essex is a same day treatment (after the initial consultation), meaning you can walk out the door with a brand-new smile. This makes composite bonding a great option for those looking for a quick and easy treatment.

What is the composite bonding treatment process?

The composite bonding process will start with an initial consultation with Courtyard Dental Practice to discuss your cosmetic dentistry goals. If necessary, we will take a dental X-ray to make sure your goals can be achieved. We will also check for things like tooth decay and other oral health issues, as these would need to be treated before proceeding with a composite bonding Essex treatment.

Once we have set out the goals of the treatment there are several steps to complete:

  1. Selecting a shade of resin to use that matches your teeth.
  2. Prepare the surface of your tooth and apply a liquid that will help the bonding stick to your teeth.
  3. Application of the resin itself which will be moulded to the desired shape.
  4. Once the resin is applied it is then hardened with a special curing light.
  5. The final step is to them polish the tooth to make it as natural looking as possible.

Is Composite Bonding Painful?

Composite bonding in Essex is a painless procedure as it does not involve working near the sensitive nerves inside your tooth that may typically cause pain. In most instances, anaesthesia is not required for dental bonding. However, some individuals may experience temporary sensitivity following the procedure, but this can be helped with some over the counter pain medication.

Will I be able to eat after the composite bonding procedure?

Yes! After the composite bonding procedure in Essex, you will be able to eat and drink as normal. Oral hygiene will of course be key in keeping your mouth healthy, so it is important to brush your teeth twice a day after the procedure. Your new bond might take a day or so to get used to, but you will be able to eat and drink as normal. If you do notice an unusual feeling when you bite down after this, then you can contact us with any questions.

How long does composite bonding in Essex last?

Typically, a bond can last several years, but this also depends on how you look after your teeth. Again, oral hygiene and eating habits will be important.

Frequently Asked Questions

Typically, a bond can last several years, but this depends on how well you look after your teeth. 

The key to making sure your treatment lasts is good oral hygiene. By this we mean ensuring teeth are brushed at least twice a day, you floss regularly and maintain routine dental check-ups. 

Eating habits are also important. Just as with natural teeth, dark, rich food and drink will stain over time, meaning that to preserve the look of composite bondings, coffee, red wine, curries etc, are best enjoyed in moderation. 

It’s also important not to use your teeth as a tool. Composite bonding adds a protective layer over teeth, but they’re not invincible! Opening bottles, ripping tape, and biting on particularly hard or chewy food can cause bonds to chip or crack.

In reality though, composite bondings require no greater effort or upkeep than natural teeth. Take a little care, and observe good oral hygiene habits, and you can expect many years of enjoyment from them.

This is one of the great features of composite bonding – it can work for almost any patient!

Offering a non-invasive and pain-free way to cover minor dental problems such as cracks, chips, gaps, or discolouration, composite bonding is ideal for anyone looking for a fast and effective fix.

One of the many great things about composite bonding is that it’s quick and easy – so if you want a great-looking smile with minimal fuss, this treatment is perfect! 

The final step in the procedure is to polish the bondings to ensure they look as natural as possible – once this is done, you’re good to go. 

There should be no pain – at most, you may experience a little sensitivity, but this will soon pass, and as most cases require no anaesthesia, you can get straight back to your normal routine. 

You can eat and drink as normal immediately after treatment too, just be aware that it may feel a little different in your mouth for a day or so while you get used to the bondings being in place.

All you really need to do post-treatment is stay on top of your oral hygiene by cleaning teeth at least twice a day but that’s it – we said it was easy!
