Do you have a few cracked teeth in your mouth? Or do you have some gaps in between teeth that you want to have closed?
It is a somewhat common occurrence amongst dental patients to have minor gaps or cracks in their mouths; if you are a fan of contact sports, you probably have more than a few chips or cracks here and there. And, while there is nothing inherently wrong with having gaps between your teeth, it can put a bit of a dent in your confidence.
However, there are many options open to you if you want to close that gap or rebuild a tooth. While you could choose to undertake an adult brace to close gaps, this may not be feasible due to time constraints or finances. Luckily, there is a simple, cosmetic solution which can reshape and smooth your teeth, while also closing up those pesky gaps.
Far from a new concept, composite bonding in Harley Street can achieve all of the aforementioned goals and more. At Harley Street Dental, our team has used this method to improve the smiles of thousands of patients. Everything from concealing a crack to building up worn down teeth, this treatment does it all!
But what are some of the other dental issues that can be treated with composite bonding in Harley Street? Read on to find out!
A fairly common issue which can be due to genetics or indeed injury, using composite bonding in Harley Street to reshape teeth is a popular procedure.
Our team will be able to create better symmetry in your smile by shaping your misshapen tooth to the one on the opposite side using a composite solution, without needing to shave down your tooth. Perfect!
Let’s face it, metal fillings are far from aesthetically pleasing. They are also sensitive to temperature changes in the mouth, and can crack the tooth due to expansion- not great if you like drinking hot tea!
Similar to a composite filling, bonding can be used to replace metal fillings, creating a more natural-looking restoration that won’t crack under pressure.
As mentioned before, cracks and chips are extremely common in dentistry but will need to be repaired to prevent decay and infection.
Bonding is often used in this instance by our team, as it is a painless and simple solution, with aesthetically pleasing, long-term results.
Another great aspect of bonding is that the composite is durable.
If you have lost part of your tooth due to injury, our team can use composite materials to rebuild your tooth in layers. This will provide you with a natural-looking tooth, that is also as sturdy as natural teeth.
Finally, another great use of bonding is to close gaps in between teeth.
In a similar way that our team rebuilds a tooth, this will involve extending the sides of the teeth until they meet in the middle, closing the gap and preventing any future bacteria accumulation or decay.
