What is composite bonding?

The Composite Bonding Process

How we restore your smile with composite bonding

step 1


During your initial consultation, our friendly dental team will discuss your concerns and smile goals. We'll examine your teeth, explain the composite bonding procedure, and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

step 2

Tooth Preparation

Minimal tooth preparation is usually all that is required for composite bonding. We'll gently etch the tooth surface to ensure a strong bond with the composite resin and for optimal longevity.

step 3

Composite Application

Our skilled dentists will apply the composite resin to your teeth, shaping and sculpting the material to achieve the desired result. Layer by layer, the resin is carefully built up to mimic the natural appearance of your teeth.

step 4

Finishing and Polishing

Once the desired shape and aesthetics are achieved, the composite resin is hardened using a specialised curing light. We then polish and refine the bonded composite to create a smooth, natural-looking finish.

step 5

Reveal Your New Smile

In just one visit, you'll reveal your transformed smile. Our team will provide you with aftercare instructions to help you maintain your composite bonding and schedule any necessary follow-up appointments.

Frequently Asked Questions about Composite Bonding

  • What is composite bonding?

    Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses a tooth-coloured composite resin to enhance the appearance of your teeth. It involves the application of the resin to address concerns such as chips, cracks, stains, or gaps, resulting in a beautifully improved smile.

  • How long does the composite bonding procedure take?

    In most cases, composite bonding can be completed in just one visit to our practice. How long it takes depends on the number of teeth being treated and the complexity of the case. Our skilled dentists will talk through your appointment length during your consultation.

  • Is composite bonding a painful procedure?

    Composite bonding is typically a painless procedure. Minimal or no enamel removal is required, and in many cases, no injections are necessary. Our team will take the greatest of care to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

  • How long will composite bonding last?

    The longevity of composite bonding can vary depending on several factors, including oral hygiene and lifestyle habits. With proper care and regular dental visits, composite bonding can last for several years. Over this time, it may require maintenance or touch-ups to ensure its continued beauty and functionality.

  • Can I eat and drink normally after composite bonding?

    Yes, you can eat and drink normally after composite bonding. However, composite bonding is not as strong as your own teeth so it's essential to avoid biting into hard objects or foods. Additionally, limiting things that stain like tea, coffee and tobacco can help preserve the appearance of composite bonding.

  • How do I care for my teeth after composite bonding?

    Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential to the longevity of your composite bonding. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day, interdental cleaning daily, and using a non-abrasive toothpaste will help keep your bonded teeth clean and healthy. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are also essential for monitoring and maintaining your composite bonding.

  • Can composite bonding be used for any tooth imperfections?

    Composite bonding is a versatile treatment that can address various tooth imperfections. It can be used to repair chips, cracks, and discolorations, as well as close minor gaps between teeth. However, for more significant orthodontic issues or extensive tooth damage, alternative treatments may be recommended.

  • Will composite bonding match the colour of my natural teeth?

    Our skilled dentists take great care to match the colour of the composite resin to your existing teeth, ensuring a seamless blend. However composite material reacts with light slightly differently and differences may be seen in certain conditions.

  • Is composite bonding reversible?

    Composite bonding is a conservative procedure that involves minimal alteration to your natural tooth. If desired, it can be reversed, and alternative treatments can be explored. However, spending time at the initial consultation to discuss your goals and expectations is the easiest way of making sure that all the right options are presented to you, and that any treatments that are order sensitive (for example, bleaching should be done before composite bonding), are taken into consideration.
