Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is famously known for filling gaps between teeth. It is a process where a tooth-coloured bonding agent is applied to your teeth.

Composite bonding is a versatile treatment that can be used to fix a range of dental imperfections, including chips, cracks, gaps, and discoloured teeth. This is the same procedure you would have gone through if you had ever chipped a tooth and had it repaired.

Process & Benefits

The procedure is typically performed in a single visit to our dental office and is generally painless, requiring no anaesthesia. The composite material is applied directly to your teeth and then hardened with a special curing light. Once the material has been cured, it is polished to a high shine, giving you a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

One of the advantages of composite bonding is that it is a minimally invasive treatment that preserves the natural structure of your teeth. It also requires less preparation than other cosmetic dental treatments, such as veneers, making it a quicker and more affordable option.

It is important to note that composite bonding is not as durable as other dental treatments and may require periodic maintenance or replacement over time.

After Care

After you’ve received composite bonding treatment, it’s important to take care of your teeth to ensure it lasts as long as possible. Here are some tips on how to care for your composite bonding:

Maintain good oral hygiene to avoid damaging the composite material
Limit staining foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine and berries since bonding material is susceptible to staining.
Quit smoking as it stains the composite material
Wear a mouth guard if you play sports or grind your teeth at night
Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can help detect any issues early and prevent them from becoming more serious.

By following these tips, you can keep your composite bonding looking its best for years to come.
