All the Facts About Composite Bonding


How can we help?

Cosmetic bonding, also known as composite bonding, is lesser known than some cosmetic dental treatments, such as whitening and veneers, but it is one of the most impressive treatments on the market. In less than an hour, bonding can transform your smile.

What is cosmetic bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a procedure used to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the smile. It also helps to strengthen chipped and worn teeth. Bonding involves using composite material to patch up flaws and problems with the teeth, such as worn surfaces, chips and spaces between the teeth.

Your dentist will use their skill and expertise to mould the composite to improve the shape and appearance of the teeth. Often, the changes made to the teeth are very minor, but the impact on the overall look of the smile is considerable.

What does composite bonding involve?

The treatment is relatively straightforward and usually takes less than an hour. In most cases, there is no need for anaesthetic. Your dentist will use bonding material, which is putty-like in consistency, to patch up chipped teeth and build up worn surfaces and when they are happy with the result, the material will be set hard using an intensive light beam. Once the material is hard, your dentist will make any finishing touches and treatment will then be complete. The results are visible immediately.

What are the benefits?

The major benefit of composite bonding is that it makes the smile look healthier and more attractive. The procedure is quick and safe and patients don’t need to worry about needles or injections. The results are also visible straight away, so you will see the impact of the treatment and there is no need to take time off work for recovery. Following composite bonding, your smile will look much better and you can feel happy and confident when you smile in the future.
