Composite Bonding In Glasgow’s Southside

We offer a variety of cosmetic dental procedures at your Glasgow practice, which range from minor cosmetic perfections to smile makeovers and full transformations.

Unlike crowns and veneers, where a tooth is shaped to fit a porcelain replacement, cosmetic bonding uses a special composite material that is moulded onto your tooth and shaped in order to remove imperfections and give you a straighter more beautiful smile without intensive treatment.

 

Composite Bonding – Cosmetic Bonding

We handle all kinds of smiles with a multidisciplinary approach. When taking care of cracked, worn or chipped teeth, there are a number of options, including crowns and veneers that can be taken to refresh your smile. However, for minor cosmetic imperfections, small chips and wear and tear, there is a fast, minimally invasive solution in the form of cosmetic bonding.
 

Composite Bonding is when a white filling material is bonded to the enamel of your tooth to repair chips or to improve the shade and shape or even to close small spaces between teeth. Unlike porcelain veneers, which are manufactured in a laboratory and require your dentist to drill away some healthy tooth structure, composites can be applied in one visit with no tooth removal.

What Are The Benefits Of Composite Bonding?

Cosmetic dentistry treatment allows for both examination and treatment of your dental and oral health, and helps you to make an informed choice about what aesthetic treatment will best improve your overall look. These treatments and knowledge helps to improve your general physical and mental health because you learn to look after yourself better and can face the world with a confident smile knowing that you look good. For some people, this translates to greater choices, such as with life partner and job prospects where first impressions really count.

What Different Types Of Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments Are There?

There are a number of different types of cosmetic dental treatments depending on individual diagnosis or what is desired by patients. These include gum contouring or reshaping to give people with excess gum tissue or a “gummy smile” a natural smile appearance that reveals their white sparkling teeth.

People with stained teeth or inherited discoloured teeth may opt for laser teeth whitening to whiten their teeth. When teeth are chipped or need reshaping, porcelain veneers are an option, including crowns that reinforce the natural teeth. Lumineers are a new type of Cerinate veneer that also give patients brightly formed natural-looking teeth that are durable.

When teeth overcrowd the mouth or are skew with gaps, Invisalign or Lingual braces can correct the teeth structure and bite for better facial appearance. Some athletes or people in general incur facial injuries that result in lost teeth or damage to their jaws. Cosmetic surgeons can replace lost or extracted teeth with dental implants or work with other trained medical professionals on facial reconstruction.
