Why choose composite bonding?
If you have a chipped, cracked or misshapen tooth, or would like to change the appearance of one or more of your teeth, composite bonding is the perfect pain-free and fast treatment.
The composite material is bonded directly onto your tooth in layers, meaning there is no need to remove any natural structure, take impressions or wait for a restoration to be created in a laboratory. Our skilled dentists carefully build up the desired shape in a single appointment, making it appear as if there was never any damage at all.
How does composite bonding work?
We start by preparing your tooth for the bonding treatment. We carefully clean and dry it before applying an acidic gel to the surface to help the composite bond effectively.
The composite material is applied in layers, gradually building up the desired shape. We match the colour to your existing natural teeth, or your preferred shade, for an aesthetic finish.
We use a blue UV light to harden the composite, which sets immediately. Your tooth is then polished to leave it beautifully smooth, shiny and natural looking.
