Composite bonding is a cosmetic procedure that restores misshapen, damaged or discoloured teeth.
Composite bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses the same material as white fillings to enhance the teeth with a natural appearance. It can be used to:
It is a great alternative to veneers, it is quick, less expensive and non-invasive.
If you're thinking about composite bonding, you'll be asked to book an appointment with our cosmetic dentist who will inspect your teeth and explain how the process works. Your dentist will also work with you to determine what results you can achieve.
On the day, the surface of the tooth will be roughened up for the composite to adhere strongly, then place and shape the composite onto the tooth’s surface. We will then use a curing light that will harden the composite and more layers will be added. Once the bonding process is set, the composite resin and your natural teeth will be contoured and polished for an even result.
You'll be given clear and practical advice to follow in order to lengthen the lifetime of your cosmetic bonding treatment. Your dentist may advise that habits such like too much coffee, red wine or smoking could stain your teeth and you should look to cut them down.
As with almost anything else, composite bonding does not last forever and will eventually need replacing. Typically, composite bonding will look flawless for around 5 years.
Generally, composite bonding is pain-free and there will not be any need for local anaesthetic injection. If the case is more complex and involves multiple teeth or if we need to replace an existing restoration that is quite large, it might be necessary to use anaesthetic. Your dentist will speak to you about what is necessary in your case.
