What is composite bonding?
Composite bonding, also known as dental bonding, is a popular cosmetic treatment to enhance the shape, shade and size of teeth. It can be an alternative treatment to veneers and is considered a pain free and quick solution in repairing minor imperfections and improve the appearance of your smile.
At Rose Garden Dental Practice our dentists use tooth-coloured composites which are natural-looking materials, to fill cavities, repair chips or cracks, close gaps between your teeth and build up the worn-down edges of teeth.
Because direct composite bonding involves the precise placement of restorative material, the direct composite bonding procedure usually is completed in one dental visit. More complicated or extensive treatments may require additional visits. However, there is usually no need for temporaries or to wait days for laboratory restorations.
Composite Bonding FAQs
The term bonding is used in dentistry to describe permanently attaching dental materials to your teeth using dental adhesives and a high intensity curing light.
The composite materials are directly applied and sculpted to the surfaces of teeth that show most prominently when you smile. While some dentists call them direct composite veneers, many people just refer to them generically as “bonding.”
Composite bonding usually is an ideal and less expensive solution than crowns or veneers for people with chips, gaps between the teeth, staining and discolouration, slight crookedness and misshapen teeth.
