Composite bonding is a cosmetic technique where a composite resin material is shaped and bonded on your teeth to make them look better. It is a good solution to problems such as simple chipped teeth, gapped teeth and staining in both teeth and fillings. Unlike porcelain veneers, composite resin bonding can be completed in one appointment.

Can Anyone Have Composite Bonding?

Composite resin bonding isn't for everyone. If your smile is crooked as the result of an over- or under bite, this treatment may not work for you. Equally, you may need more detailed work for treatment of complex chips or gaps in your teeth. Composite bonding is usually if you need a simple cosmetic solution for teeth that are otherwise healthy.

What is a Veneer?

They can be used to fix chipped, stained, crooked, worn down and abnormally spaced teeth. Dental veneers can be made from composite resin and porcelain. The dentist will remove a small amount of the tooth surface to make space to place the veneer. A mould of your tooth (impression) is taken and sent to the dental laboratory. The dental veneer is then made to fit the tooth and mouth by a dental technician. The veneer is bonded to the tooth with resin cement by the dentist at the following appointment.
