Unfortunately in life we only get one set of adult teeth, so taking care of them is extremely important. However, at Harley Street Dental Clinic we understand that even if you take good care of your teeth, you are not able to predict and avoid any accidents that may occur. Accidents can leave teeth chipped or cracked, resulting in people feeling unhappy when it comes to their smile, but it doesn’t need to be this way. If you have chips in your smile, or even small gaps between your teeth, and want to do something about it then speak to one of our professionals about composite bonding Harley Street and arrange an appointment at a time that is convenient to you. They will be able to explain how our treatments will benefit both you and your smile, as well as answer any questions that you have.
Chips and gaps do not have to get you down
Having chips or gaps in your teeth can lead to all sorts of insecurities. For some people it makes them feel so unhappy with their smile that they avoid being in photographs or only smile with their mouth shut. Even speaking to someone new in public can leave people feeling distressed if they are not confident when it comes to their smile. Having composite bonding Harley Street can help you to overcome these insecurities by ironing out some imperfections that your smile may have. Made from the exact same resin material as white fillings, your new and improved teeth will look and feel completely natural. No more having to navigate around the jagged edge of your chipped tooth, and no more shying away from photographs. Other people are unlikely to even spot that you have had treatment carried out unless you tell them, as the colour of your new piece of tooth will match the colour of your original ones, blending in completely.
An alternative to veneers
A lot of people who decide to have composite bonding Harley Street are having treatment carried out on either their upper or lower front teeth, as these are the teeth that are on show when you smile. Chips and gaps can be disguised easily by the resin that is used within this treatment, with your dental practitioner moulding and manipulating the resin into the right shape for your tooth once it has been applied to it. Once your practitioner is satisfied with the shape of the resin, it will be hardened extremely quickly under a special light. More often than not this treatment will be able to be completed during one appointment, but this can vary depending on individual circumstances. This treatment is often considered an alternative to veneers, another treatment that is used to hide the appearance of chips and small gaps. With resin, the surfaces of your teeth remain intact as no tooth preparation is needed. Veneers require your teeth to be filed down and whilst they last longer than resin they are more expensive and can cause more complications.
