teeth whitening or composite bonding?
Looking for a brighter, more radiant smile? There are many ways in which our dental professionals can lift the shine of your smile, including teeth whitening and composite bonding treatment. Read on to discover the difference between these two treatment options and see which one could be the ideal route for you!
A brighter, healthier smile with teeth whitening
Teeth whitening is a popular method for brightening your smile and giving you that extra healthy glow from within. With the multitude of at-home whitening kits available on the market, it can be confusing as to which product is the best for your oral health and your smile goals.
The best teeth whitening kits can only be prescribed by a registered dental professional. A combination of in-practice and at-home whitening treatment offers high-strength, gentle and predictable results compared to high-street DIY brands, which can damage enamel and increase sensitivity.
We offer only the most premium whitening brands for our patients, including pola, Boutique Whitening and Phillips ZOOM!, as well as Enlighten which is renowned for whitening smiles to the highest B1 shade. Choosing to have your teeth professionally whitened ensures long-lasting results, low sensitivity and a variety of different strength kits to suit your schedule.
Professional composite bonding by cosmetic dental experts
If you’re looking to transform the brightness of your smile quickly without the need for top-up treatment, composite bonding could be the solution for you. Akin to a ‘mini smile makeover’, bonding can:
- Improve tooth colour and remove discolouration
- Correct irregular tooth shape and size
- Realign uneven or crooked teeth
- Fill unwanted gaps between teeth
So how does composite bonding treatment work? This cosmetic treatment uses a thin layer of resin material that is skilfully applied to the tooth’s surface and carefully manipulated into the desired shape and position. No injections and no drilling!
Whilst picking the perfect composite shade for you might feel overwhelming, the experts at Ascent Dental Care have a keen eye for aesthetics and will work with you to find the perfect, natural colour for your new smile.
Which treatment is the right one for you?
If you’re happy with your smile overall but would like to tackle stubborn stains and create an even shade, teeth whitening treatment offers the predictable and fast-acting results you’re looking for. Composite bonding may be a more appropriate option for you if you’re interested in addressing additional imperfections, such as small chips and cracks in your teeth.
