Composite Bonding - Cosmetic Dentistry.

Composite bonding is an additive cosmetic procedure that does not cause any harm to the natural tooth and is pain free. The procedure can be carried out within one visit at the practice with very minimal work required to get you maximum results and that perfect smile.

Composite bonding is where composite resin (white filling material) is used to improve the appearance and aesthetics of the natural tooth.

Here at Whitemoss we can fix:

  • Broken or worn teeth.
  • Close small gaps in-between teeth.
  • Change the shape, size and shade of the natural tooth.
  • Exact shade match to the natural tooth.
  • Composite veneers, this is where the composite would cover the entire front surface of the tooth to improve appearance.

The above procedures are all carried out in surgery by blending thin layers of different shades of composite resin on top of the tooth’s enamel to perfectly match existing teeth or over take a completely new look and give the best results possible for our patients.

Benefits of Composite Bonding?

  • Improves the appearance of teeth with very minimal work required.
  • Not destructive to the tooth.
  • Easy to maintain.
  • Pain free procedure – no injections required.
  • Easily modified treatment.
  • Fast and immediate results – only one appointment required.
  • Improved appearance
  • Conservative of healthy tooth tissue
  • Usually no requirement to reduce teeth as you would with porcelain veneers
  • Shade can be chosen to match teeth OR be different to natural tooth shade
  • Easily modified and repaired
  • Easily restored if any damage such as wear or fractures
  • Reversible if required (although not easily done)
  • Great for disguising crooked or uneven teeth

Please note:

  • Requires maintenance like any natural tooth would
  • Does not brighten like natural teeth when tooth whitening
  • Like nature, can stain / wear over time

Life expectancy:

  • Composite bonding without servicing will not last as long as veneers which cannot be serviced after fitting. Veneers last 10+ years.
  • Good oral hygiene is essential to look after your investment
  • Without this you may get inflammation or exacerbated gum disease
  • Annual Composite bonding examinations recommended and will be chargeable per tooth for any polishing/adjustments
  • Whitening trays may not fit after composite bonding has been carried out and new versions would be required
