Dental Composite Bonding in Rugby

Dr Janine Sohota is pleased to offer her dental patients composite bonding in Rugby. This is a treatment that is the height of convenience when you want to transform your smile as quickly and as pain-free as possible.

In most cases suitable candidates for composite bonding can have their treatments completed in just one appointment, depending on their needs. You will need to book an appointment with Dr Sohota at her dental practice at Bilton dental clinic, 322 Bilton Road, Rugby.

Following your consultation, Dr Sohota will be able to get a clear picture of what work is needed. So if you have chipped, broken or badly fractured teeth, you will most likely be a suitable candidate for composite bonding. However, should Dr Sohota discover any hidden dental issues that will need treatment before you can have composite bonding, she will be able to discuss this with you.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is the general name given to tooth bonding or dental bonding treatments. This is an ideal treatment that offers a quick and high-quality solution for dental issues such as gaps between the teeth, minor damage such as chips, small breaks and dental fractures. 

It is an effective way to replace tooth material missing from chipped teeth and for fixing tooth discolouration that cannot be removed. The procedure will give amazing results and the materials used in composite bonding look and feel like your natural teeth. 

A composite resin is mixed together and then attached to the surface of a tooth and then carefully shaped and polished to restore its original evenness and appearance. Dr Sohota will match the colour of the resin to the shade of your natural teeth, so when you smile it will look as though the composite material is a natural part of your tooth.

Combining composite bonding with other treatments

Dr Sohota is a very experienced cosmetic dentist and can offer her patients a range of treatments from her dental practice in Rugby. She will work closely with you to help you get the results you want. 

It may be the case that you are a suitable candidate for composite bonding, but you may also want to combine this treatment with something like teeth whitening to achieve the bright, white smile that you desire. 

If your teeth are heavily stained from smoking or from staining food and drink, such as coffee, red wine and spices, you may want to consider having teeth whitening treatment to remove surface stains before undergoing composite bonding treatment.

Is composite bonding painful? 

We are often asked if it is painful to have composite bonding treatment. The great news here is that it is not painful at all! There are no drilling or anaesthetic injections involved in the treatment, so you don’t need to worry that it will hurt.

As the composite material is attached to the surface of your natural tooth, there is no need to drill into your teeth. It is a safe, fast and effective way to fix a lot of minor cosmetic dental issues.

The composite material is attached to your tooth and is then hardened by using UV light. This means that you will be able to walk out of your treatment and be able to comfortably bite down on your teeth by the end of the treatment session. 

Do not hesitate to get in touch with Dr Sohota and her friendly team to discuss your composite bonding needs.
