Enhancing Your Smile The Benefits of Teeth Whitening and Composite Bonding

Benefits of Teeth Whitening and Composite Bonding

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. You cannot make a good first impression if your teeth are stained or discoloured. Teeth whitening and composite bonding are cosmetic dental treatments to regain your lost glistening smile. 

Why do you need professional teeth whitening?

With time and natural ageing, your teeth may gradually discolour. In addition, chronic smoking, alcohol misuse, and consumption of teeth-staining food and beverages will make your teeth unsightly. There are several home teeth whitening products available in the market. However, the only efficient is if a dental expert undertakes hygienist treatment and professional teeth whitening. Your dentist will examine your mouth and fabricate a personalised tray before the whitening procedure. Unlike professional custom-made trays, over-the-counter teeth whitening cannot whiten your teeth evenly, safely or efficiently as they do not fit your teeth well.

The concentration of teeth whitening products in the market may differ and do not suit the whitening need for your teeth. Hence, it’s always better to trust a dental professional when your dental health is concerned. 

Why do you need composite bonding? 

Composite bonding or applying a tooth-coloured composite material onto your discoloured teeth is another effective method to make your teeth appealing. Composite bonding can repair minor dental flaws like,

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Minor tooth decay
  • Gapped teeth
  • Misshaped teeth

Composite is a tooth-coloured material that comes in different shades. Your dentist will always allow you to compare the composite shade with your existing teeth and choose the shade. Of course, he will guide you in selecting the best for you. So, no matter how much artificial material you have in your mouth, it will be virtually invisible with composite bonding. 

What are the benefits of teeth whitening and composite bonding?

  1. A brighter smile

These procedures remove the stains from your discoloured teeth, so you will have an esthetically pleasing smile within less than one hour.  

  1. Enhance self-esteem and self-confidence.

You may feel embarrassed about smiling or speaking in public if you have unsightly, discoloured teeth. After receiving these cosmetic dental treatments, you can confidently smile in social gatherings. Not only for others, a pleasant smile also makes you feel good about yourself. 

  1. Improves oral health

Professional removal of stains and weak, porous, discoloured tooth substance reinforces the strength of your teeth. It will reduce the risk of developing dental decay and gum disease in your mouth. 

  1. Long-lasting results

Professional teeth whitening and composite bonding will last long with the maintenance of proper oral hygiene. 

  1. Less time-consuming and immediate results

On average, a dental professional only takes less than one hour to perform whitening or composite bonding treatments. The good news is you don’t have to wait for your teeth to be brighter; you get immediate results. 

  1. Safer treatments

Composite is a scientifically proven bio-compatible material and recommended by holistic and biological dentists. Unlike some home teeth whitening kits, professional teeth whitening doesn’t include any toxic material that can cause health hazards. The composite we use at London Specialist Dentist is BPA-free; hence, it is more biocompatible and less allergenic in the long term.

Thus, recreating your smile with cosmetic teeth whitening and composite bonding will significantly benefit you.
