Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a dental procedure that involves the use of a tooth-coloured composite resin material to enhance the appearance of teeth. Fryern Dental Practice, located in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, offers cosmetic bonding as a minimally invasive solution for various dental imperfections.

Cosmetic bonding is an effective way to improve the appearance of chipped, cracked, or discoloured teeth, as well as to close gaps between teeth and to reshape teeth that are misshapen or too small. The composite resin material used in the bonding process is highly versatile and can be moulded to match the shape and colour of the natural teeth, providing a seamless, natural-looking result.
