What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is a cosmetic technique that involves applying dental composite to the teeth to make it look better. It can be a fast and effective option for that perfect dentition you have been looking for. The process involves moulding the composite on the teeth to give the appearance of a better dentition. What is more? Composite bonding is fast and can be completed in just one dental visit.

What are the steps involved?  

  • Treatment is not complicated.  First your cosmetic dentist will match the correct resin colour to match the colour of your natural tooth.
  • Next the dentist will roughen the surface of the tooth to be treated and bonding liquid will then be put onto the tooth which will work by forming an adhesive surface.
  • Next tooth-coloured putty-like resin will be moulded into shape and hardened with UV rays.
  • The bonding will then be precisely shaped and any trimming done. Lastly will come a polish to match your tooth surface.

  • Cracked or chipped teeth

Aftercare of Composite Bonding & Risk

One of the great advantages of composite bonding is it is inexpensive and a relatively uncomplicated dental option. It is worth noting, however, that the composite material may chip or wear slightly more than the material that is made in a laboratory such as a crown or a porcelain veneer.  We estimate that the composite bonding material will stay looking good for around three to ten years although that will depend on your oral habits. As time passes the material will appear slightly duller and may stain and show signs of a little wear. If this happens you will have the option of having them re-contoured replaced or re-polished.

How Long does Composite Bonding Last?

The amount of time your bonding lasts largely depends on you. Looking after the composite bonding and taking necessary precautions will make it last longer. Usually, the composite bonding lasts for about 5-8 years. However, it is also subject to wear and tear. In a case where the user breaks the composite restoration, our lines are available to schedule an appointment with us to get it fixed.

FAQs on Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a very good choice when it comes to the repair of a tooth that is chipped. Using composite bonding your dentist will be able to restore the look of your tooth and make the surface of your tooth blemish free and smooth, protecting it from further damage.

No, composite bonding is not painful at all. All the work on the tooth is on the surface so usually no painkiller is needed either.

Having composite bonding comes with very little risk. Although the composite resin that we use is strong it will never be as strong as your natural teeth, and you need to bear this in mind. It is, however, a great option but we cannot claim but it is a more reliable option than having a crown or a veneer.

This will depend on the extent of the bonding that's been done by your dentist and also on your own oral habits. Cancel well the bonding material will last anywhere from three years to 10 years before it needs to be replaced.

You will not be able to whiten composite bonding material as you would your natural teeth but you will be able to replace the bonding material to match the rest of your teeth if you do undergo tooth whitening.

Composite bonding will not be a permanent solution although it will be something that can last for a long time. If you care for your composite bonding well it can last up to 10 years before you need to have it replaced.

Like natural teeth, where you have composite bonding, you will need to brush and you will need to floss every day. You should also have them cleaned professionally every six months. Staining from coffee red wine or tobacco may occur if you have any of these habits and bonding material will not whiten like natural teeth do. How good your teeth look depends on how much can you take off them.
