Composite Bondings

What is Dental Bonding? - London Smiling

What is Composite Bonding and what does it do?

This is a technique using composite resin to correct many aesthetic problems from colour to the shape of a tooth or to minimise gaps between teeth.

Teeth which are chipped, cracked, or discolored may also be concealed through composite bonding. Teeth that have been bonded look just like your own teeth.


How is it done?

Composite Bonding is a simple procedure. First, a solution is painted on the tooth enamel. A liquid resin is then flowed onto the tooth surface. A putty-like resin is then sculpted on the tooth and hardened with a special frequency light to a durable finish. It is polished and smoothed to match your surrounding teeth. The bonding process can be reversible. Depending on the number of teeth involved, one visit of several hours is usually all that is needed and often, no anesthesia is required.

How long does it take?

Composite bonding is a simple and versatile one-step treatment which can be used to address a range of flaws in just one visit.

The bonding material is applied to your tooth and sculpted to an ideal shape to cover or replace the problem area. Then it is polished for an ideal smile.

How long does it last?

Composite bonding is among the easiest and most affordable of all cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Bonding is not as strong as veneers, it is less durable and more likely to get chipped or stained than other materials used in tooth restoration such as porcelain or ceramic. Bonding can last up to 5 years.
