Even the most minor teeth imperfections can make us feel unconfident. Many people feel self-conscious when speaking to others and even avoid smiling altogether because of the way their teeth look.

People can sometimes be put off cosmetic dental procedures because they think the treatment will be too intensive. However, treatments like composite bonding are quick and effective, and can transform a smile in no time.

What is composite bonding?

Composite resin is a very thin material, matched to the colour of your teeth and then affixed permanently, disguising minor imperfections. Much like porcelain veneers, your existing teeth are covered in the process. However, unlike veneers, your tooth structure remains intact as the procedure requires only minor work to the tooth surface.

Composite bonding provides you with healthy, natural-looking teeth, indistinguishable from the real thing. You can opt to undergo composite bonding for the full set of teeth, or individual teeth only.

Who is composite bonding for?

Composite bonding works best for people hoping to disguise:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Jagged edges
  • Minor gapping
  • Discolouration

What is the composite bonding process?

Following an initial assessment, your dentist will match the colour of the resin to your existing shade. If you are combining composite bonding with teeth whitening, this will take place before the resin is applied.

Your dentist will then prepare your teeth for treatment and cover it in a bonding agent. The thin composite resin will be applied to the teeth and shaped while in place. Finally, the resin will be hardened and set using a UV light.

How long does composite bonding take?

After the initial consultation takes place, we can usually complete the composite bonding treatment in one appointment. You can expect to leave the practice with a dazzling new smile.
