Cosmetic Dentist in London
Dental bonding or Composite Bonding as its often called, is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that’s used to fix minor teeth defects to improve their look and appearance. The procedure requires the application of a composite resin to the surfaces of the tooth; the resin is then sculpted like putty into the desired shape and hardened by the cosmetic dentist using a special light to produce beautifully natural looking results. The composite resin comes in a wide variety of shades, enabling the cosmetic dentist to exactly match the colour and texture of your natural teeth. Dental or Composite bonding is completely pain free as the dentist only works on the outer enamel of the teeth. The procedures produce beautiful natural looking results.
Composite bonding is used to fix a number of cosmetic issues such as fixing broken, chipped or cracked teeth, whitening discoloured teeth, fixing teeth that are worn-out and closing spaces or gaps between teeth. Composite bonding can often be a good alternative to porcelain veneers and also more cost effective. Composite bonding is also less invasive than porcelain veneers and causes little to no damage to the underlying tooth structure. Porcelain veneers tend to be more invasive and cosmetic procedures using porcelain veneers cannot be reversed as a result.
A vast majority of composite bonding procedures are usually completed in at most 1 to 2 visits to the cosmetic dentist. The first visit includes an initial assessment to determine the health of your teeth and gums. The cosmetic dentist will also ascertain your dental aspirations and needs, understand the results you are keen to achieve and will suggest cosmetic treatment best suited to your needs, including composite bonding and veneers. The cosmetic dentist will explain the pros and cons of each option in regard to the results you seek. The cosmetic procedure can be started the same day usually. If not, the next appointment is when the cosmetic dentist will start the treatment. The dentist will first apply composite resin to the relevant teeth and shape it into the desired form. The resin is then hardened to provide the results you need. The duration of the procedure depends on the nature and complexity of the results you desire, including the changes you wish to make to the size and shape of the teeth. An experienced cosmetic dentist can usually complete a composite bonding treatment in 1 to 2 hours for straight forward cosmetic changes.
Composite Bonding Cost
How much does Composite Bonding Cost in London?
Cosmetic dentistry treatments are no longer as costly as they once used to be. With new advances in dental technology over the last decade, new tools have become available, cosmetic treatment times have reduced and as a result, costs of cosmetic dental procedures have come down as well. Composite bonding treatments can be as low as £160 to fix chips and make minor changes to the shape of a tooth. More advanced treatments such as composite veneers and porcelain veneers can be more expensive, costing upwards from £460 to £600 per veneer. The cost of composite bonding and veneers depends on three factors mostly. The first factor is the scale and complexity of the change you wish to make. If you want to make significant changes to the shape and size of a tooth, the treatment duration will be longer. Longer treatment duration requires the cosmetic dentist to spend more time making the changes, thus leading to a higher cost of treatment. The second factor impacting the cost of cosmetic dental treatments is the type of treatment you choose to use. Porcelain veneers typically tend to be more costly as compared to composite veneers and composite bonding. Also, the more number of teeth you want to change, the more expensive the cost of treatment. The third factor driving the cost of cosmetic dental treatments is the cosmetic dentist you choose to take up treatment with. Different cosmetic dentists have different cost structures for cosmetic procedures, depending on their area of focus. Some cosmetic dentists focus on porcelain veneers, and can therefore offer larger discounts or lower costs given the higher volume of treatments they do for porcelain veneers. Other cosmetic dentists focus on composite bonding and can therefore often offer the procedure at cheaper cost. It’s useful to therefore determine what type of treatment best suits your need and to then find a cosmetic dentist who focuses on that specific type of cosmetic treatment.
