Cosmetic bonding in Colchester through Advance Dental Clinic

Dental bonding in Colchester is a form of restorative surgery that uses a resin to fill in chips, gaps, reshape teeth and recolor them too. It involves placing resin composites in the back and front teeth, composites restore decayed teeth, improve cosmetic appearance and can even reshape your teeth.

A thin coat of plastic material is placed on the front of your teeth. Following this, a bonding material will be applied and your dentist can sculpt, shape and colour your teeth to perfection. High-intensity light is then aimed at the plastic in order for it to harden, then the surface is cleaned and polished.

Dental bonding can be used to correct small areas or large areas of your teeth that need attention. Small corrections only need one appointment and involve the attachment of colour-matched resin onto the surface of teeth, they will typically be used for small fillings and front fillings. Large corrections need laboratory fabrication and so will need temporary fillings to be worn whilst your mould is sent to be produced into resin. These restorations are more durable and better fitting than smaller corrections as they are individually made.

Prices will vary with different patients, but it may also vary depending on the extent of the bonding needed. Prices typically start from £300 to £600 per tooth that needs attention. Call 01245 268 494 for a free consultation at Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford.
