Tooth bonding is a cosmetic treatment that can effectively treat both functional and aesthetic dental concerns, however, it does have limitations.
One benefit of tooth bonding is that it is far more affordable than other cosmetic dental treatments. Since composite bonding can be done in a single visit, it's also a faster way to repair multiple teeth.
Tooth bonding does not require anaesthesia, unless you require a large filling, inlay or onlay during your dental appointment. A simple and straightforward cosmetic procedure, the process involves:
Composite typically lasts between 4 and 8 years, depending on where the tooth has been bonded and the type of food you usually eat.
Composite isn't as strong as your natural teeth, and is prone to chipping, so you might want to avoid directly biting into hard foods.
Here’s what can cause damage to a bonded tooth:
If you think you regularly grind your teeth, clench your jaw or play contact sports, make sure to ask us about a custom mouthguard so we can protect your newly bonded teeth from possible chipping or breakage.
Bonded teeth don't require any special care at home, just follow your usual brushing and flossing routine and maintain a good level of oral hygiene and oral health overall.
Tooth bonding and composite veneers both involve using composite resin material to restore the look of teeth.Tooth bonding is used to make minor changes, while veneers are used for larger cosmetic restorations.
Veneers can also be made out of porcelain, a natural tooth-like material regarded for its translucent quality. Porcelain veneers are designed in a dental laboratory rather than being directly bonded onto teeth.
Composite bonding can last between 4 and 8 years, depending on where the tooth has been bonded, the amount of pressure it’s under and the type of food you consume.
You can help your restorative dental treatment to last longer by avoiding foods that can damage or stain teeth.
Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that aims to mask minor dental flaws using a white-coloured composite resin material that gets bonded and shaped directly onto the tooth. It’s a similar treatment to getting a filling placed for sealing small gaps in teeth, but looks at both the functionality and aesthetics of a smile.
