  • Is Composite Bonding right for me?

    Composite bonding is a cosmetic treatment that can effectively treat both functional and aesthetic dental concerns, however, it does have limitations.

    Like veneers, bonding may not be suitable if you suffer from tooth decay, gum disease or other damage. Instead, your dentist might recommend a crown, bridge or dental implant.

    Composite bonding is more affordable than many other cosmetic dental treatments and is a minimally-invasive way to enhance the look of teeth.

    If your treatment requires more composite to cover the majority of the tooth surface, this is applied as a composite veneer instead. The cost of a composite veneer starts from $430 per tooth.

  • Composite Bonding Process

    Your dentist will first see you for a consult to discuss your aesthetic goals and to tailor a plan for you detailling costs and treatments. If it's been more than 6 months since your last visit, you will need a check-up and clean to ensure your mouth is healthy.

    A simple and straightforward cosmetic procedure, the process involves:

    • Composite resin is applied to the tooth
    • Composite is then shaped and sculpted to the new surface to blend in as naturally as possible
    • Composite is hardened using a curing light
    • The composite is polished

    In some cases, your dentist may apply a local anaesthesia prior to your composite bonding treatment.

  • What Damages Bonded Teeth?

    Composite typically lasts between 4 and 8 years, depending on where the bonded tooth is located and the food you eat.

    Composite isn't as strong as your natural teeth and is prone to staining and chipping, so you might want to avoid directly biting into hard foods. Bonded teeth can be damaged by: 

    • Eating hard and sticky food
    • Chewing on pens or biting your fingernails
    • Stains from drinking coffee, red wine or dark pigmented food and drink
    • Stains from smoking
    • Teeth grinding and TMJD

    What Damages Bonded Teeth?
  • Looking after bonded teeth

    If you suspect you grind your teeth, clench your jaw or play a contact sport, 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 best practice oral hygiene routine.

Frequently asked questions

The cost of composite bonding in Perth starts from $180 to correct a single surface chip however, prices vary according to how much repair is needed. For instance, if composite needs to cover the majority of the buccal surface, it's classified as a veneer. Composite veneers start from $430 per tooth.

During a consultation, your dentist can provide you with a break-down of all costs prior to going ahead with treatment. Mount Lawley Dental also provides flexible payment plans with Zip.

Composite bonding and composite veneers both involve using composite resin material to restore the look of teeth. Bonding is used to make minor changes to a small section of the tooth, while a veneer is used to restore the majority or entire surface of a tooth.

Veneers can be made of composite resin or porcelain. Porcelain is a natural tooth-like ceramic material known for its translucent quality. Porcelain veneers are designed by your dentist and carefully hand-crafted in a dental laboratory by an experienced ceramist rather than being directly layered and bonded to teeth like composite is.

Cosmetic dental treatments that involve placing composite resin require a specific skillset from a dentist. Not all general dentists offer composite bonding or composite veneers as a treatment option. Dentists choose to pursue aesthetic and restorative training and qualifications to broaden their experience and practice in cosmetic dentistry.

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.

Composite 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 a small section of a tooth.

It’s a similar treatment to getting a filling placed for sealing small gaps in teeth, but addresses both the functionality and aesthetics of a smile.
