When is composite bonding recommended?

Composite bonding can help with a number of issues that may be affecting your smile such as concealing chips or cracks in your teeth, help with tooth discolouring, and change the shape of your teeth. This procedure is usually recommended if your teeth have suffered minor injuries and you have good overall oral health.

Composite Bonding Benefits:

Composite bonding has many benefits, and it can fix a range of issues including discolouration, chipped teeth, and crooked teeth. Composite Bonding is a same day treatment (after the initial consultation), meaning you can walk out the door with a brand-new smile. This makes composite bonding a great option for those looking for a quick and easy treatment.

What is the treatment process?

The process for composite bonding will start with an initial consultation with us to discuss your cosmetic goals. If necessary, we will take a dental X-ray to make sure your goals can be achieved. We will also check for things like tooth decay and other oral health issues, as these would need to be treated before proceeding with a composite bonding treatment.

Once we have set out the goals of the treatment there are several steps to complete:

  1. Selecting a shade of resin to use that matches your teeth.
  2. Prepare the surface of your tooth and apply a liquid that will help the bonding stick to your teeth.
  3. Application of the resin itself which will be moulded to the desired shape.
  4. Once the resin is applied it is then hardened with a special curing light.
  5. The final step is to them polish the tooth to make it as natural looking as possible.

Is Composite Bonding Painful?

The composite bonding process is a painless procedure as it does not involve working near the sensitive nerves inside your tooth that may typically cause pain. In most instances, anaesthesia is not required for dental bonding. However, some individuals may experience temporary sensitivity following the procedure, but this can be helped with some over the counter pain medication.

Will I be able to eat after the composite bonding procedure?

Yes! After the composite bonding procedure, you will be able to eat and drink as normal. Oral hygiene will of course be key in keeping your mouth healthy, so it is important to brush your teeth twice a day after the procedure. Your new bond might take a day or so to get used to, but you will be able to eat and drink as normal. If you do notice an unusual feeling when you bite down after this, then you can contact us with any questions.

How long does the bond last?

Typically, a bond can last several years, but this also depends on how you look after your teeth. Again, oral hygiene and eating habits will be important.
