Composite Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a great option for fixing chipped or cracked teeth and is usually performed in a single visit and usually there is no need for anaesthetic.

Your dentist will initially discuss the areas of concern you want to address, after which they will choose a shade of composite material to match your natural teeth and mould the material to improve the state of the teeth. The area to be treated will be thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris or tarter build up, ready for the special gel that is then applied. The dentist will shine an intensive light beam on the tooth to set the bonding agent. In many cases, bonding material is applied in thin layers to recreate the look of natural teeth.

The application of cosmetic bonding is generally for a single tooth or a small number of teeth, rather than an entire arch. Composite bonding works best on small areas as the bonding is not strong enough to work over large areas.
