Tooth Bonding Manchester

If you’re looking for a tooth bonding Manchester specialist, 360 Dental Care offers high-quality, reliable solutions. As cosmetic dentistry experts, we have a dedicated team on hand to assess whether composite bonding is the right option for your needs, tailoring all recommendations to you.

Dental bonding can transform your smile, rectifying minor damage such as broken teeth. It’s a quick and easy solution that doesn’t involve tooth reduction, making it a highly popular option with our patients. Some even use bonding to test the new aesthetics and bite before replacing with porcelain veneers, crowns or onlays.

Putting you at ease from the moment you get in touch, visit our Manchester dental practice to get the best advice about how to improve your smile and confidence.

To arrange a consultation or free smile assessment, call us now on 0161 834 1000 to speak to our team.

If you’re considering tooth bonding, you may have lots of questions about what to expect. Our Manchester dentists will guide you through the consultation process so that you can make an informed decision about your own dental care. However, we’ve put together some FAQs below to get you started.

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?
Teeth will suffer a lot of wear and tear over the years if not properly cared for, including decay, gum disease and trauma. This can lead to issues occurring such as stained teeth, chipped teeth and an imbalanced bite. If you have teeth which differ in their size, shape and colour, it can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile.

Cosmetic bonding can provide solutions for patients with teeth that differ in the way they look and feel. It’s often referred to as ‘composite bonding’ due to the composite materials used for the procedure. These materials can bond with the natural teeth, helping them to become wider and longer where required without altering the structure of each tooth.

What Are Composite Bonding Treatments Used for?
Cosmetic bonding is one of the most popular solutions available thanks to its non-invasive technique and the versatility of the treatment. It’s a safe, reliable procedure when carried out by an experienced cosmetic dentistry specialist.

Choose cosmetic bonding treatments for:

  • Fixing broken and chipped teeth
  • Changing the shape of teeth (both in width and length)
  • Reducing gaps between teeth
  • Treating decay
  • Improving your mouth’s bite
  • Testing cosmetics before other dental treatments

The composite bonding materials used are tooth coloured, offering highly natural results to give you the smile you want.

Why Choose Cosmetic Bonding?
As a quick and effective solution for a range of problems, there are lots of benefits of tooth bonding treatments. This includes:

  • NO TOOTH REDUCTION – Many patients love the fact their teeth won’t need reducing before the bonding treatment.
  • ONE VISIT – As a fast and simple procedure, the tooth bonding takes place in just one visit.
  • EASY TO MAINTAIN – Your cosmetic bonding specialist will talk you through the easy ways to care for your new smile.
  • AFFORDABLE – Bonding or composite veneers are often cheaper solutions than some other treatments, such as porcelain veneers or crowns.
  • PAIN FREE – Bonding is a highly comfortable treatment due to its non-invasive nature.

After your treatment, you should be able to bite down with comfort. While we hope you don’t experience any problems with your new teeth, if the composite bonding material does become damaged, it can be easily repaired by your dentist.

Is Dental Bonding Right for Me?
When coming in for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, we’ll never just assume what you need. Every patient will require a detailed examination and assessment of their teeth and gums to ensure we recommend the best solutions for you.

Bonding is one of our most popular treatments thanks to the range of benefits it offers and its non-invasive process. Small changes to a smile can make a big difference to a patient’s confidence, so it’s important you find the right options for you.

Cosmetic bonding is often suitable as both a standalone treatment or chosen as part of a smile makeover. Some will even try bonding before investing in other dental solutions further down the line, such as porcelain veneers.

We may also need to address any dental issues you’re experiencing, such as treating gum disease or tooth grinding, before we recommend other solutions. This will ensure the bonding has the best chance of success.

How Does It Work?
As a flexible treatment, your dentist will sculpt the composite materials to get the look you want for your smile. We’ll talk you through the process when you come in for your consultation (if it’s the right option for you), but it’s always handy to have an overview of what to expect during this type of dental treatment.

  • COLOUR MATCH: The composite resin used for the bonding material comes in a range of colours to help create a natural look. This will need to be identified before the treatment can begin.
  • PREPARATION: Before the composite resin is bonded to the teeth, each tooth is cleaned thoroughly. There’s no need to reduce, file or drill into the teeth, but their surface will be roughened and a conditioning liquid applied to help with attachment.
  • TREATMENT: For the treatment, the composite resin is then attached to teeth where required, with your dentist carefully sculpting the material into the desired shape.
  • UV LIGHT: Your Manchester dental expert will then use UV light to harden the resin. Additional layers of the bonding paste can be used if further enhancements are required.
  • FINISHING: Finally, the resin is smoothed and polished to help emulate the natural look of your teeth.

Will My Teeth Become Whiter?
When we select the colour of the material, we’ll always try to match your teeth so that the results are as natural as possible. However, you may also like to consider teeth whitening to improve the overall appearance of your smile, which is often carried out before the treatment.

Should I Choose Dental Bonding or Veneers?
When looking at the ways to transform your smile, it can often be hard to know which solution to choose. Cosmetic bonding vs veneers is one of the most common decisions patients have to make, and there are different benefits of each.

Veneers imitate the look of natural teeth and are also bonded to teeth to affect their size, shape and colouring. They’re often chosen in more complex cases, whereas bonding is used for minor alterations such as repairing chipped teeth.

When you come in for your dental consultation, we’ll talk you through all the options available to you to help you make an informed choice, considering the results required, costs involved and long-term benefits.

Will the Results Last?
While we’ll always talk our patients through how long treatment results are likely to last, we do say they will remain for at least 5 to 8 years – often many years more! However, this will depend on multiple factors, including:

  • How well you follow your dental hygiene programme
  • Your diet (e.g. healthy, low in sugar)
  • Other issues, such as tooth grinding (discuss bite guards with your dentist)

At our Manchester dental practice, we use high-quality cosmetic bonding techniques and materials to give your treatment the greatest chance of success.

Can the Resin Stain?
Yes – just like natural teeth, composite bonding materials can become stained if you don’t care for them and maintain your dental hygiene programme, such as regular brushing and flossing. You can also improve your oral health by following a healthy diet and lifestyle, including stopping smoking and reducing caffeine intake. Please attend all your check-ups as scheduled and in the first 48 hours after a bonding treatment, avoid any foods or liquids which could stain the material.

What Happens If the Resin Is Damaged?
We’ll talk you through the aftercare involved after the tooth bonding, but just like teeth, the resin can be subject to wear and tear, as well as trauma. If the bonding material becomes damaged, luckily, it can easily be repaired via the application of further resin layers.

How Much Does Dental Bonding Cost?
Bonding isn’t available on the NHS, so if you’d like this treatment, you’ll have to fund it yourself. Luckily, it’s more affordable than many other treatments, and the price will depend on factors such as how extensive the work is. When you visit our dental practice for your consultation, we can give you a more accurate quote to help you decide whether to go ahead with the work.
