Composite bonding improves the look of your teeth by making small alterations to their shape or size, covering up small chips in the surface, or making them whiter and brighter.Composite bonding can offer excellent aesthetic results and is a shorter term solution than other aesthetic options such as porcelain veneers. Whether it’s the right choice for you also depends on the current situation of your teeth.
Composite bonding uses a flowable composite resin material which is applied and shaped directly on top of your natural teeth. Once it’s fixed in place it gives your teeth a more aesthetic appearance, improving the overall look of your smile.
First of all, your dentist will choose a shade for your composite material that matches the colour of your natural teeth as closely as possible – this way, they blend in with the rest of your smile to give a natural-looking result.
Then, some minimal preparation might be required to make sure that the composite material is able to fix firmly to your natural teeth. This will depend on your own teeth. We then apply the composite onto your teeth, shape it to create the appearance you want, fix it in place and polish it to give the best aesthetic results.
Composite bonding is an easy way to achieve stunning aesthetic results without undergoing invasive treatment that affects the structure of your natural teeth underneath.
As composite bonding is fast and could give you a brand new smile in just one appointment, it’s a great choice if you want results quickly.
Composite bonding is more affordable than a treatment such as porcelain veneers. While it doesn’t last as long, it could be a good starting point for a brand new smile.
The materials we use, our skill in these techniques and our ability to perfectly shade match our materials to your natural teeth mean we can deliver beautiful results that look and feel right for you.
We use Digital Smile Design digital planning and techniques such as pre-created moulds to make composite bonding even more precise and efficient.
