Composite bonding is an aesthetic treatment that involves using a tooth coloured composite resin material on the existing tooth.
The resin is sculpted in place and bonded to your tooth to create the shape and shade that you need. The colour of the resin is selected to perfectly match your teeth. It is very conservative and involves minimal removal of the tooth structure.
When would we do
Composite Bonding is used for fixing minor aesthetic issues such as teeth discolouration, chipped teeth, to close spaces and to align mildly crooked teeth. It is a more cost-effective cosmetic treatment that can be used to rejuvenate your smile.
Composite Bonding can also be used to repair teeth and replace old, discoloured and failing metal fillings in both the front and the back teeth.
Metal fillings are packed into a tooth, which requires the removal of a significant amount of enamel around a cavity for their placement. This process can weaken a tooth already impacted by decay and does nothing to prevent the filling from falling out. Because metal expands and contracts with heat fluctuations in your mouth, further tooth damage or loose and missing fillings can occur.
The composite resin used in white fillings is not impacted by temperature fluctuations and will remain in place, protecting both the underlying cavity and the health of your natural tooth for years to come.
What to expect ?
Did you know ?
Composite bonding can be used to improve the aesthetic of the bottom teeth, but there are some factors that need to be considered before doing it, like the patient’s bite and how the top and bottom teeth meet.
If the patient suffers from teeth grinding, composite bonding is not a good option because the composite resin is not strong enough to resist to the forces and may fracture. The process is absolutely pain free, No injection is necessary and there is no drilling in the natural teeth.

When Should We Do Composite Bonding?
Composite Bonding is a one sitting process, faster and more cost-effective than porcelain restorations or fillings. The main shortcoming however is that the bonding is not as long-lasting as porcelain and can stain and get rough over time.
