Composite bonding is a quick, easy and effective way to enhance the appearance of your smile and repair small areas of damage. It can be used to close small gaps, correct irregular spacing, improve worn teeth, cover small areas of damage or brighten discoloured teeth. It is a fast, pain free and non-invasive smile transformation that is applied to the surface of your natural tooth so none of the structure of your tooth needs removing. The composite material is colour matched to your existing teeth to achieve a high aesthetic result.
Your dentist will discuss with you what you would like to achieve from your treatment. This may involve taking models of your teeth and having them made into your desired look. Your dentist will build up your tooth in layers, crafting the perfect shape and size.
The best way to look after your composite bonding is to maintain a great oral hygiene routine at home which includes brushing twice a day as well as daily flossing. The composite is securely bonded onto your teeth but it is wise to take care when biting into or chewing particularly hard things (such as crusty bread, finger nails and opening crisp packets with your teeth!) to avoid any damage.
