Why having a perfect smile is such a trend
Why is having the perfect smile such a trend nowadays? You could probably blame the masses of influencers and TV personalities for showcasing their pristine pearly whites with every glimpse of a grin on our news and social feeds.
A perfect smile can make a person feel more confident, more well-presented and all-around better looking in terms of appearance.
The perfect smile usually consists of bright white, neatly aligned, perfectly shaped teeth. To achieve this look, a colossal number of people are conforming to the veneer trend – as this is usually the most efficient way of achieving all three. It can also be the quicker method!

What is Composite Bonding?
Patients often present with well-aligned teeth but are not quite happy with their smiles. Composite Bonding can be the solution and involves the bonding of composite resin to the edges and front of teeth.
It may be minor changes a patient requires, like fixing one chipped tooth, or a more dramatic change, like building symmetry and size into a smile.
The treatment will often involve an assessment where an experienced aesthetic clinician gets to know what the patient wants to achieve. They can temporarily place composite on a patient’s teeth as a ‘mock-up’ to show them what the result could look like.
The process will then add composite to a person’s teeth, and they will leave with a new smile!
Why Composite Bond over Veneers?
The most significant benefit Composite Bonding has to offer in comparison to veneers is that Composite Bonding is a great way to restore your smile if you have lost some of your teeth.
Unlike veneers, which require the removal of healthy tooth structures in order to place them, composite bonding can be placed without any damage to your natural teeth.
This makes composite bonding a much better choice for people who have mild dental problems or who are concerned about preserving as much of their natural tooth structure as possible.
Other benefits include:
