Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment that can give you the smile of your dreams, with minimal preparation of your natural teeth. Once the teeth bonding procedure is complete, you’ll have a beautiful smile that will see your confidence soar.

What is Composite Bonding

Composite Bonding involves the use of tooth-coloured resin to repair chipped, discoloured, fractured or decayed teeth. The treatment is so-called because the material is ‘bonded’ to your teeth.

What can Composite Bonding do?

  • Composite resin used during this treatment can be shaped and polished to match your natural teeth
  • We use teeth bonding to brighten up a discoloured tooth or improve the appearance of a chipped tooth
  • Bonding can also be used to make teeth appear longer, change the shape or colour of a tooth or close gaps between the teeth
  • Composite bonding can even be used as a cosmetic alternative to silver fillings.

Benefits of Composite Bonding.

Very little preparation is needed – this means that we won’t need to remove much (if any) of your existing tooth enamel to make room for the composite material

Quick procedure – the treatment is typically complete in just one appointment!

No need for anesthesia – meaning that you can carry on with your day with minimal downtime once the treatment is complete.

The Procedure.

  • Before we begin the bonding procedure, we will use a shade chart to make sure the composite resin we choose is a perfect colour match to your natural teeth
  • Then, we prepare your surrounding teeth for the procedure and coat the tooth we’re treating with a light amount of conditioning liquid to help the resin bond with your enamel
  • The next step is to apply the resin. We will mould and smooth the putty-like material until it is shaped exactly the way you want it, before shining a special ultraviolet light onto your tooth to set the resin.
  • When the resin has hardened, we will polish the tooth so that it matches the shine of your natural teeth
  • This procedure is shorter than many other cosmetic procedures, lasting upwards from an hour. All that’s left to do then is enjoy your beautiful new smile!
