Composite Teeth Bonding

A painless cosmetic treatment that lets you smile with confidence

Composite dental bonding is a painless cosmetic dental treatment that can transform the way your teeth look. So, if you are unhappy about the appearance of your teeth, then composite bonding could be the solution you are looking for.

  • Filling gaps or chips in teeth
  • Filling cracks in teeth
  • Changing the shape of teeth

Benefits of composite bonding

Compared to some of the more traditional dental treatments, composite bonding offers several major advantages.

As opposed to alternatives like crowns where part of the tooth is removed, composite bonding involves no invasive surgery.

Composite bonding is an affordable cosmetic dental treatment that is able to disguise the things that you don’t like about your teeth.

No drilling, extractions, or injections are needed with this treatment.

In many instances, the treatment can be completed in a one-hour session.

Ultimately, the success of any treatment is judged by the final result. Despite being fast, non-invasive, and cost-effective, the results can be quite literally – startling!

How does composite bonding work?

The dentist will start by selecting a resin colour that blends naturally with your tooth. The tooth is then prepared for the treatment by slightly roughing the surface of the area to be treated, as this allows the resin to adhere to the tooth properly. This is a painless procedure and does not require any anaesthetic injections.

The tooth is then coated with a liquid that ensures the resin adheres consistently to the surface of the area to be treated.

With the tooth fully prepared, the resin can be applied and moulded to the correct shape. Once again, this is an entirely painless procedure. Once the resin has been applied and shaped, it is hardened by the application of UV light. Once this is complete, the dentist will perform any final shaping and polishing it until it matches the rest of the tooth.

Most composite bonding treatments can be completed within an hour. However, if more than one tooth is to be treated, then further appointments may be required.

How can composite bonding work with teeth whitening?

As well as being a fantastic method of filling chipped or cracked teeth, composite bonding is an excellent solution for staining in teeth and fillings and undoing the damage caused by coffee, tea, smoking, and foods that stain.

Before undertaking composite bonding for tooth whitening, the dentist will recommend that you have a teeth whitening treatment. This step is to allow the dentist to choose a resin that blends with your teeth while they are looking their absolute best. This is important as once the resin is applied; no further whitening treatments can be undertaken.

What care is needed after composite bonding treatment?

As with all dental treatments and teeth in general, good oral hygiene and regular check-ups are advised. If cared for correctly, your composite bond should last for years.

A few tips aimed at ensuring your composite bond is long-lasting and stain-free are listed below:

  • For 48hrs after your treatment, avoid smoking, tea, coffee and other foods that may stain teeth.
  • Regular brushing and overall good oral health, including visiting a dental hygienist, will make sure your composite bond is kept unstained and strong.
  • Remember that the bonds aren’t as strong as normal teeth. Try to avoid things like chewing pen tips or nail-biting, as this may chip the resin.
