Composite bonding is a subtle but effective way of restoring lost tooth structure and repairing your beaming smile. It involves a pigmented resin material, which will be applied to your teeth by your dentist and will cover up any chips or cracks. This is an excellent option for many as it is a very non-invasive procedure that involves no drilling and requires no anaesthetic. It is a virtually painless process, and does not alter the natural structure of your teeth.
WHAT ARE THE OTHER ADVANTAGES OF COMPOSITE BONDING?
This method involves minimal discomfort, as it does not require invasive treatment or any brackets and wires. While it is most commonly used to cover any unsightly chips or cracks in your teeth, it can also be effective in making your smile appear brighter and less dull. It can also sometimes be a good option for those unwilling to go down the orthodontic route who want to realign their smile. In these cases, your dentist will strategically place the resin in the right areas to make your teeth seem more straight. This method can also be used for broken teeth to make the teeth appear full.
WHY CHOOSE COMPOSITE BONDING?
This method is highly effective and can be completed in just one session, ideal for anybody unwilling to undergo major procedures who are experiencing minor issues with their teeth. The pigmented resin is very strong and durable and is able to withstand everything your natural teeth can endure. If you maintain good oral hygiene, the treatment typically lasts around five to six years before it will need redoing.
IS COMPOSITE BONDING SAFE FOR MY TEETH?
Composite bonding is ideal for those unwilling to alter their natural tooth structure, as your dentist will mould the resin to fit your natural teeth. Whereas veneers require the removal of some of your natural tooth enamel, composite bonding necessitates no such action and does not involve any drilling. This makes it an exceedingly safe procedure for your teeth and oral health.
