What is Composite Bonding?

The world of cosmetic dentistry is evolving all the time and the focus is now shifting to minimally invasive treatments which do not require removal of tooth structure.

Composite bonding is at the fore front of this revolution as it is minimally invasive and can transform the appearance, shape, shade and the colour of teeth on the same day

Composite – the tooth coloured filling material

Bonding – the mechanical process whereby the tooth colour filling material is attached to the teeth

Improving the cosmetic appearance of the teeth can be achieved in a variety of ways. Quite often this can be through orthodontics to improve the position of the teeth. However, teeth can vary in shape, size and colour. This can be due to the way they have developed, dental trauma, or from general wear and tear throughout life which can result in cracks, chips and stains.

Composite bonding

Composite bonding can improve virtually all of the scenarios mentioned above by the addition of a tooth coloured filling material to the teeth which are “bonded” to the natural tooth. This material is hand sculpted by the dentist to the desired shape to create a natural looking tooth. A wide variety of shades are available to ensure that the colour matches perfectly.

The main benefits are:

  1. No needles / Injections
  2. No drilling of the natural tooth structure
  3. A Reversible procedure
  4. Same day result

Composite bonding vs Composite veneers

Composite bonding is usually reserved for situations where small chips or repairs are required. Subtle changes to the tooth shape and length can also be made. Composite veneers on the other hand, work by covering the complete front surface of the tooth structure enabling larger changes in tooth shape and form to take place. Usually 4-6 composite veneers are done to the front teeth to give the same day smile makeover.

Either of the two are great options if you are looking for fast, minimally invasive way to get the perfect smile.

  Symptom Checker

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms below, Composite Bonding may help.

Teeth can occasionally chip and fracture over time. Tooth coloured composite filling material can be attached (bonded) to the chipped or fractured areas to restore the aesthetic appearance of them

Occasionally teeth can erupt and are asymmetrical in shape and size. Orthodontics can correct the position of teeth, but cannot change their shape. Quite often at the end of orthodontic treatment composite bonding is required to correct these shape problems.

When teeth have erupted, leaving spaces, it lead to problems with cleaning and aesthetically is not pleasing. composite bonding can correct these spacing issues by symmetrically and proportionally increasing the size of the teeth to close the spaces

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Chips
  • Discolouration
  • Spacing irregularities

Composite tooth coloured filling material, like any other dental material will deteriorate with time. As a result, it normally isn’t as long lasting as some other restoration techniques such as veneers or crowns. However, with good personal care and maintenance they can maintain their appearance for years.

Composite bonding is a single session treatment option which is great to correct smaller imperfections, chips, cracks and minor spacing between the teeth.

Veneers on the other hand are lab made ultra thin sheets of ceramic material which are shaped to fit onto the teeth. They usually require some removal of natural tooth structure to create enough space for the veneer to attach to the tooth. They are normally recommended for larger imperfections of the teeth and as they are lab made, are more costly than composite bonding.

The tooth surface is thoroughly cleaned and then prepared with a gel that roughens the surface microscopically. The putty like composite resin material is then applied using special instruments and brushes to sculpt to the desired shape, often in several layers. Using a special light, the material is then hardened. Further layers can then be added accordingly. The procedure is then completed with smoothing of the tooth surface and polishing.
