Invisalign and composite bonding might not seem like dental procedures which are related, but in reality, they are two treatments that complement one another really well when it comes to creating a new smile. Invisalign’s purpose is to straighten teeth and close gaps, whilst composite bonding is a treatment used to fix teeth imperfections such as cracks, stains and chips.
Invisalign and composite bonding can create a straighter and more aesthetic smile and here at Dental Solutions, this can be done in conjunction with one another. If you have questions about how Invisalign and composite bonding can create a perfect smile, then here are some of the most frequently asked questions.
Invisalign is a teeth-straightening system that works without anyone really noticing that you’re having treatment! Invisalign is a popular treatment particularly for adults who would like teeth-straightening treatment and, as Invisalign uses clear retainers, this means that people are unlikely to notice. The clear aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and look like a thin, clear gum shield, so there are no traditional metal wires, braces or brackets involved and they can be removed whilst eating and drinking. Treatment time for Invisalign depends on your teeth and what you want the final results to look like, as well as which type of Invisalign treatment our dentists recommend.
Composite bonding is the process that involves applying a material called composite resin or dental composite to a tooth in order to make it look more aesthetically pleasing. Patients who are interested in this procedure often feel as though their natural teeth could use some improvement, either because of crooked, misshapen or chipped teeth.
Composite bonding can also be used for a number of other cosmetic dental procedures, such as making teeth appear longer or changing the shape and colour of a tooth. It can even be used to close gaps in between teeth. Treatment time is usually a lot shorter than people realise, with a single tooth taking around an hour on average.
Just as Invisalign works to straighten teeth, composite bonding works by altering the appearance of the tooth. Invisalign and composite bonding treatments work well together as they both compliment the appearance of teeth and leave you with the perfect smile.
Composite bonding can be done both before and after Invisalign treatment, but most patients choose to have composite bonding treatment as a follow-on procedure following their Invisalign treatment to create the perfect finish. Composite bonding can help to create smoother tooth shapes and sizes and be used to fix any remaining chips, cracks or gaps left after Invisalign treatment.
