Composite bonding ticks the boxes for patients looking for a minimally-invasive way to deal with stains, small gaps, cracks and chips in their teeth.

The craftsmanship involved in carrying out composite bonding is something we’re extremely adept at here at Crown Bank Dental Implant and Cosmetic Centre. The careful laying of composite resin means we’re able to capture the essence of real tooth enamel, making for a highly authentic-looking result.

Composite bonding: the process

Once we have a firm understanding of your tooth anatomy, we can begin planning how we will restore the tooth in question. A resin that matches your natural tooth shade is selected, and this is layered, shaped and applied to your tooth. Prior to this, the tooth is roughened, to make sure the resin adheres to your tooth. Finally, the tooth is hardened with a UV light and polished, resulting in a tooth that fits in seamlessly with your smile. It is advisable to have teeth whitening before composite bonding treatment to ensure that the composite resin colour is matched to freshened, brighter teeth, helping to further enhance the aesthetics of your final result.


How long does it take?

Composite bonding can be carried out in one appointment, the length of which depends on how many teeth are being treated. Your clinician will advise you of how long your appointment time will be.

What alternative treatments are there to composite bonding?

Crowns and veneers can also be used to address the same problems as composite bonding. However, these treatments require the removal of some of your organic tooth structure, as they fit over the top of a tooth (crowns) and over the front surface of a tooth (veneers).

Composite bonding leaves your healthy natural tooth structure intact and is a more cost-effective alternative. This said, both crowns and veneers are more durable and the latter is known for producing a superior cosmetic outcome.

How durable is a bonded tooth?

Whilst a bonded tooth won’t last as long as veneers and crowns, with proper care it can last between 3-7 years. Come along to regular dental check-ups and maintain a good at-home oral hygiene routine to ensure the results of treatment stand the test of time. We also recommend avoiding tooth staining food and drink, and refraining from biting foreign objects, as this could cause the composite resin to become damaged.

Is it painful?

You won’t experience any discomfort during or after treatment.
