What is Composite Bonding?

Also called dental bonding, composite bonding is a cosmetic dentistry process that restores the shape and colour of your teeth. During the procedure, a thin coat of acrylic resin is applied to your teeth, and as the resin hardens, it is sculpted to alter and supplement damaged areas of teeth. The acrylic is impeccably matched to the natural whiteness of your teeth, so it is virtually undetectable.

Types of dental issues that can be corrected with Composite Bonding

Composite bonding can correct numerous damage-related, colour-related, and shape-related teeth issues. Composite resin bonding can;

  • Repair your chipped or cracked teeth
  • Change the shape of teeth
  • Repair decayed teeth to fill cavities and replace amalgam fillings
  • Increase the length of short teeth
  • Improve the appearance of discoloured teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Protect exposed roots when they are exposed by receding gums

Benefits of Composite Bonding

  • Composite bonding is a dental cosmetic treatment designed to enhance the appearance of teeth. It is an effective method to refine your teeth with no waiting time. A single visit to the dentist is all it takes, and the bonding material is directly applied to your teeth, then carefully sculpted, smoothed, and polished. Several teeth can be restored in a single session. The bonding not only mimics the natural teeth colour but also the translucent characteristic of the natural tooth enamel.
  • The treatment is non-invasive, which means, usually, there are no anesthetics involved unless bonding is used to fill a decayed tooth. It is relatively pain-free.
  • Composite bonding cost is lesser than other dental cosmetic procedures. They are cheaper than porcelain veneers.
  • It is long-lasting, but at the same time reversible so, there’s always the opportunity to take them off or replace them when you whiten teeth to match the new colour. Failures are rare and easy to fix.
  • Bonding does not cause pain or discomfort.
  • Results are easy to predict and functional from the start.

Composite Bonding Procedure at Mouth Dental

  • It is important to consider professional teeth cleaning and whitening before bonding. It enables the resin to match the new tooth colour. Teeth whitening gel is not effective on composite. Therefore, whitening before bonding is recommended. Composite conditioning treatment is designed to maintain the shade of composite bonding.
  • The first step is matching the resin to your teeth colour perfectly.
  • Then, the tooth enamel is gently cleaned with a weak acidic gel to prepare the tooth surface for bonding.
  • The resin is applied incrementally to restore the form and colour of teeth. The putty-like resin material is shaped and moulded to achieve the desired result.
  • It is then rapidly hardened with UV light.
  • The bonding is further shaped and trimmed. It is finally polished to give for natural tooth appearance.

Before and After images

Am I suitable for composite bonding?

It is suitable for almost everyone who needs to correct minor dental imperfections. However, the effectiveness is determined by the level of damage to the teeth or the condition your teeth are in. For serious cracks and chips, dental crowns or veneers are more suitable. Some tooth gaps, if too wide, need to be corrected through Invisalign or other orthodontic treatment. We carry out a detailed clinical examination and perform a digital intra-oral scan for an aspirational smile analysis to help you decide which treatment offers the best results for you. If you have a general or nightly habit of teeth grinding, it is best to look at other options as well.

How long do the results last?

Good oral hygiene and bonding care determine how long the results last. Generally, bonding can last up to 10 years. It does wear with time, lose shine, and pick up staining. However, re-contouring, polishing, and touching-up are possible. If you are careful enough to protect your bonded teeth from hard foods and excessive nail-biting, you can make them last their full lifespan. You will need replacements after that.

Aftercare- how to take care of my teeth after the treatment

The biggest culprit of bonded teeth is hard foods, such as candies or ice cubes. Biting pencils, pens, and daredevil tricks with your teeth like opening bottle caps or pulling off corks, are damaging to the bonding.

As it is not possible to effectively whiten bonded teeth, it’s crucial to ensure their colour is retained by practicing anti-staining teeth cleaning. Make sure to clean your teeth after eating foods that cause stains and discolouration. It is not only good practice for maintaining the bonding’s lustre but also for the general health of your teeth.
Opt for non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your teeth twice a day.
Teeth grinding will have to be a habit of the past. Consider wearing a nightguard if you have sleep bruxism.
Avoid overly sugary, acidic, and highly starchy foods. Eat a fibre, mineral, and vitamin-rich diet with lots of greens, vegetables, and fruit.
Make regular visits to the dentist a general rule to maintain overall good hygiene.

FAQs

Will Composite Bonding damage my teeth?


No, it will not damage teeth. The process is non-invasive to minimally invasive, and there's no need for tooth grinding or your enamel to be removed.

Is Composite Bonding suitable for me?


If you have chips fractures, broken or uneven teeth, stubborn stains, short teeth, or exposed roots, composite bonding can fix it all.

Can I whiten my teeth after a bonding treatment?


Bonding resin does not respond to whitening agents. However, you can always replace bonding material to match the enhanced colour of your natural teeth. We recommend teeth whitening prior to the bonding treatment.

Can I clean my teeth as usual?


Yes, you can. Just make sure not to use abrasive material or abrasive toothpaste. Use alcohol-free mouthwashes if you are using them. Follow your dentist’s instructions.

How do I prepare my teeth for bonding?


Composite bonding requires little to no preparation. However, your teeth should be clean. They should be free from tartar and plaque. Dental cleaning will prep your teeth to ensure they are clean before the resin is bonded. Any decaying should also be removed.

Does the procedure hurt?


No, it is pain-free and non-invasive. No anesthetics are used. It is only minimally invasive when used to repair a cavity.

Can I remove Composite Bonding?


Yes, it is reversible. You can either remove it altogether or replace bonding.

How soon after can I eat and drink?


You can eat and drink after you leave the dental clinic. However, refrain from having hot beverages, acidic food, sticky foods, nuts, alcohol, or fizzy drinks soon after. Try to avoid stain-causing foods and drinks for the first 24 hours, such as tea, coffee, wine, tomato sauce, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, grape juice, berries, beets, and fresh cherries. A soft diet is recommended for a day. It gives time for the bonding material to gain its full strength. It is important aftercare to protect your bonded teeth from hard foods. Some may feel tooth sensitivity right after, but it gradually disappears.

Do bonded teeth need any special attention?


Keeping your teeth cleaned and flossed is essential. Brush twice a day and floss regularly. Make sure not to bite anything too hard with your bonded teeth. Regular dental cleaning performed every 6 months will ensure your teeth do not build up stubborn stains.

Can I get Composite Bonding through the NHS?


No, the NHS does not provide Composite Bonding, as it is purely a cosmetic dental procedure.
