Cosmetic Bonding in Golders Green
Improving your teeth to give you a more attractive smile.
Cosmetic bonding can change your smile in as little as one appointment, although more complex cases can take up to 3 visits. Cosmetic bonding is a procedure in which tooth-coloured resin is applied and hardened with a special light, this ultimately "bonds" the material to the tooth to restore or improve your smile.
Cosmetic bonding provides an affordable and less invasive alternative to other more costly cosmetic procedures. The technique is designed to last between 3-4 years before consideration for replacement is required. However, this can be carried out to good effect as the tooth underneath remains completely intact.
Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth.
Sometimes, bonding also is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede.
