Composite bonding is typically used to repair discoloration, filling defects, and close gaps between teeth. A composite resin is fitted to a tooth and molded to mimic the tooth's natural shape. Since the resin's color matches that of your teeth, it will appear to be a natural component of the tooth. You may be able to achieve a smile you're happier with through composite bonding.

Fast and effective
Often, composite bonding only requires one dental appointment. It's a quick and efficient technique to address minor aesthetic problems.
As soon as the composite is put, it is hardened using a curing light, and by the conclusion of the visit, the tooth is ready for comfortable biting.
Moreover, bonding is a non-invasive process. Alternatives like crowns and veneers involve the permanent removal of a portion of the tooth.
The tooth's surface just needs to be roughened for the resin to adhere in order to apply composite bonding, leaving the tooth's structural integrity untouched.
Procedure To Get Composite Bonding
- Select a shade
- Prepare your tooth
- Apply the composite resin material
- Cure the material
- Polish your tooth
A composite resin material that closely resembles the color of your natural teeth is chosen by your dentist using a shade guide.
Your tooth's surface is roughened, and a liquid conditioner is then administered. These actions aid in the bonding substance's adhesion to your tooth.
The putty-like resin material is applied, shaped, and smoothed into the required shape.
The composite resin is then "bonded" to the surface of your tooth by being hardened using a specialized curing light.
Next, your dentist will make any last-minute modifications that are required and polish your tooth to a gloss that looks natural.
