Composite bonding is a dental treatment where restorative material, namely composite resin is applied to the tooth or tooth surface. The material comes in a variety of shades to match your natural teeth. Composite bonding is a non-invasive and pain-free treatment since your cosmetic dentist works only on the outer enamel which has no sensation.
What are the benefits of composite bonding?
Most of our patients choose to do composite bonding to fix chipped tooth or teeth. The treatment is also used to:
- Improve teeth shape
- Improve teeth form
- Improve length or symmetry of the tooth/teeth
- Close gaps
- Improve teeth colour

Composite Bonding can be completed in as little as two visits. Upon your first visit, your dentist will perform a full assessment including x-rays and discuss what your goals are. Your second and final visit is when the composite will be applied. Duration of the treatment varies depending on your case.
Aftercare: Composite bonding is an effective method to improve the aesthetics of your teeth, yet one has to be careful with biting and crack opening foods with the composite tooth/teeth. You can eat most foods, however you should be delicate with amount of pressure you add to your composite bonding.
Although composite bonding done by our skillful dentist truly achieves lifelike results, it is not as durable solution as dental veneers are.
