Composite bonding

Composite bonding is where a tooth-coloured resin composite is sculpted and bonded to the tooth. It is a minimally invasive, cost effective technique and can be completed in as little as one appointment. It has many advantages when compared to traditional ceramic restorations, including:

  • Less destructive to the tooth
  • Often does not need drilling or injections
  • Cheaper
  • Easier to repair

Composite bonding is generally suitable for individuals with minor cosmetic imperfections on their teeth. However, it may not be appropriate for those with severe tooth damage or decay, as they may require other dental treatments.

Composite bonding is typically a minimally invasive and painless procedure. In most cases, it does not require anesthesia unless the bonding is being used to repair a decayed tooth or to fill a cavity.

While composite bonding materials are resistant to staining, they may still become discolored over time, especially if exposed to strongly pigmented foods, beverages like coffee or red wine, or tobacco use. Regular dental cleanings can help maintain their appearance.
