Dental bonding is one of the easiest procedures cosmetic dentists use to correct the appearance of one’s teeth. A synthetic, coloured resin is applied on the discoloured teeth, cracked or chipped teeth. Composite bonding has become a popular option and is recommended by dentists for various dental issues.

This blog discusses the procedure and advantages of Composite bonding.

Composite Bonding Procedure

After your first consultation, your dental conditions are diagnosed and affected. The tooth will be cleared with special equipment. We paint a mild gel on the area of the natural tooth enamel – this hardens the face of your tooth and allows for a tight bond. The dentist then applies a resin that contains a colour that matches your natural tooth. Finally, they cut and shape the resin to match your natural teeth. 

Once the resin is set, the dentist will harden it by treating it with a UV light and then polish it to get a natural shine. The procedure is simple and can be done in a single visit. It is also claimed as one of the most affordable ways to correct one’s teeth’ shape, size and colour of one’s teeth. 

Composite resins are a durable mix of glass and plastic. Dental bonding can be a great choice for people who want to get a beautiful smile snappily and affordably. 

Composite Bonding For Dental Issues

Composite bonding can be used for the following dental issues.

Corrects Gaps between Teeth

Do you have a gap between your teeth that makes you feel awkward? In that case, composite bonding will give you a solution. You can correct the gap with dental bonding and enhance the appearance of your smile.

Removes Teeth Stains 

Stained teeth can be a discomfort for all. Though teeth whitening is a good option, it won’t give a long-lasting result. But, with a composite binding treatment, your teeth will look brand new.  

Chipped or Cracked Teeth 

If you have a cracked or chipped tooth, composite bonding might be the best way to restore your teeth’s natural appearance. The materials used in dental bonding can be made to match your natural teeth’s colour.

Corrects Size and Shape of your Teeth

Some people have uneven teeth shapes- perhaps they’re too round or just a little too square. In these circumstances, you can opt for a composite bonding procedure to correct the shape and size of your teeth.

Corrects Crooked Teeth 

Composite bonding can even correct crooked or misaligned teeth and give you that smile you’ve always wanted. This can be a good alternative for those who don’t prefer braces.

How Long Does Composite Bonding Last?

With proper oral hygiene, composite dental bonding can last around 5 to 10 years before they need another dental appointment.  

Some best practices to help maintain the composite bonding are

  • Using Mouthwash after every meal and once before going to bed
  • Avoid habits such as hard foods, alcohol, acidic food etc.
  • Schedule regular dental cleanings once every six months.
  • Limit the intake of coffee and avoid smoking as they stain your teeth and even lead to teeth abrasion.
