Composite bonding known as dental bonding is fast becoming one of the treatments of choice world-wide in improving the overall appearance of your smile.
The composite materials is applied to your teeth and artistically shaped and polished to suit each patients goals. This method is generally used for single tooth or minimal repairs or improvements; such as to the edge of the tooth.
A composite resin is used, the same material used in white cosmetic fillings. This is a tooth coloured material which is available in an array of shades to suit your natural tooth shade or even to make your teeth whiter. The underlying natural tooth is not affected or damaged and the treatment can be completed in a single session.
Edge bonding is a popular with patients that have just completed teeth straightening treatment and want to make subtle fine changes to the edges of the front teeth, to get their desired end result. It can also be the perfect treatment for patients who have chipped a single tooth and want to restore the look and shape of the tooth.

Composite bonding tend to last 7-10 years and require home care and regular maintenance. Patients may experience small chips which will need smoothing or repairing throughout.
Oral hygiene is of paramount importance. You must floss or use interdental brushes every day around your own teeth and the composite. Staining can occur and keeping up with regular scale and polishes, air polishes and bonding maintenance is vital. We would recommend 2 visits a year to maintain the colour and shine of your composite. You may also need a bite guard to wear at night to protect the composite from coming off or chipping during the night and such things as biting into an apple may not be advised.
Digitally designed composite veneers are better suited for patients who want a smile make-over, to trial their smile first or have any complexity in their current alignment, shape and bite. Using the skills of the lab technician and the dental software means the results are crafted in a more precise and specialist manner. The digital design is the method used for full smile make overs, overall smile improvements and multiple teeth bonded.
