What is Composite Bonding?
Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that is gaining popularity among people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth. It involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to the surface of the tooth to correct imperfections such as chips, cracks, gaps, and discolouration.
Composite bonding is an excellent option for achieving a natural-looking smile that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth.
Here are some reasons why composite bonding achieves the most natural look:
Composite bonding is a highly customisable treatment that can be tailored to your specific needs. We will carefully select the shade of composite resin that matches the natural colour of your teeth. We usually recommend a course of Teeth Whitening before the treatment so we can use the thinnest layer possible. We will then shape and contour the resin to match the shape of your teeth, ensuring that it looks natural and blends seamlessly with your smile.
The bonding process is straight-forward and non-invasive. Your dentist will apply a bonding agent to your tooth, followed by the composite resin material. The material is then shaped and smoothed to achieve the desired shape and contour. The composite resin is cured using a special light, which hardens the material and bonds it to your tooth.
Composite bonding is a durable treatment that can last for several years with proper care. The material is strong and resistant to wear and tear, making it an excellent option for restoring the functionality of damaged teeth. You can enjoy your beautiful, natural-looking smile without worrying about the material chipping, cracking, or staining easily.
Composite bonding is a conservative treatment that preserves the natural structure of your teeth. Unlike other cosmetic treatments such as veneers, which require the removal of a significant amount of tooth enamel, composite bonding requires minimal to no tooth preparation. This means that your natural teeth remain intact, and you can maintain excellent oral health.
Easy to Maintain
Maintaining your natural-looking smile after composite bonding is easy. You can care for your bonded teeth the same way you care for your natural teeth by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, having regular dental check-ups and Hygiene cleanings. Cleanings can gently polish away any surface stains and also reinvigorates the shine. You should also avoid biting hard objects, such as ice or hard candy, to prevent damage to the composite resin material.
In conclusion, composite bonding is an excellent option for achieving a natural-looking smile. The treatment is highly customisable, durable, conservative, and easy to maintain, making it an ideal choice for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their teeth.
