Composite bonding can create a whiter, brighter, aesthetically pleasing smile for patients and is often described as a quicker and more affordable alternative to treatments such as porcelain veneers and teeth straightening.
Composite bonding resin can be used for filling chips, fractures or gaps between teeth, or for fixing discolouration. The resin is attached to a tooth and shaped to restore its original appearance. The colour of the resin is matched to your teeth, so it will appear as though it is a natural part of the tooth.
Our skilled clinicians often use a combination of teeth whitening and composite bonding to provide a quick, effective smile makeover.
What is the procedure?
- Composite bonding is a pain free cosmetic dentistry treatment.
- Your dentist will use composite resin that is the same colour as your teeth (or whiter if that is what you prefer) to transform your smile.
- The resin is applied to the teeth and skilfully moulded and shaped to create the beautiful smile you have requested.
- Once the resin is in place your dentist will use a special light which hardens the material to bond it to your teeth.
Benefits of composite bonding?
- Composite bonding can usually be carried out in just one visit. It’s a fast, minimally invasive and effective way to fix minor cosmetic issues.
- The composite is hardened using UV light as soon as it’s applied, resulting in a tooth that can comfortably bite down by the end of the appointment.
- Composite bonding can be a cheaper alternative to crowns or veneers
- With regular brushing and good oral hygiene, your composite bonds should last for years.
