Composite Bonding

What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is the process of applying tooth coloured filling material to the surface of the teeth to change the overall shape, size and colour of the tooth.

Composite edge bonding is where composite is added to the edges of the tooth to make them look more uniform and repair small chips or imperfections of the teeth

Situations where composite bonding is suitable:

  • Chipped tooth
  • Cracks
  • Stains
  • General wear
  • To improve aesthetic apperance of tooth/smile

The main benefits are:

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How many visits are needed?
The composites themselves are done in one appointment. We will always book a consultation appointment first. Most people will have a review appointment after to ensure they are completely happy.
Will I need an injection?
The great majority of all cases are completed pain-free and without the need for local anaesthetic.
Will my teeth need to be drilled?
In most cases composite is applied with no obvious drilling to the natural tooth. For cases that require tooth adjustment, you will be advised beforehand in the consultation appointment
How long do composite veneers last?
As with most cosmetic dental procedures they will eventually need replacing. Typically we see good results of up to 5 years for composite veneers and 7 years for edge bonding, dependent upon care.
Is there a minimum number of teeth recommended?
There is no minimum recommendation for this. In order to gain optimal aesthetic results most individuals require approximately 8-10 composite restorations. This allows for a more uniform and symmetrical smile.
Composite bonding or porcelain veneers?
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.
Do your teeth have to be straight first before composite bonding?
We would always recommend straightening before the bonding as it helps. Slight minor misalignment can be masked with composite. However it is always advisable to straighten with braces or invisalign first.
What is the composite bonding procedure
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.
