What Is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is a form of cosmetic dentistry that can help to fill in minor gaps in between teeth and help with damage to the teeth. This can include chips and fractures. Composite bonding can also be used to restore the natural colour of the tooth after discolouration.

Composite bonding involves the application of a tooth-coloured composite resin to the tooth. This resin will be perfectly moulded to match your surrounding teeth to improve the cosmetic structure and fill in any gaps. Many patients can be eligible for composite bonding, and it remains one of the most popular dental treatments available across the world. You may want to consider composite bonding if you are struggling with the following:

  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Decaying teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Receding gums
  • Fractured or chipped teeth
  • Mismatch teeth

Composite bonding is the ideal solution for so many dental issues. Enquire online today to speak to one of our consultants to see if composite bonding is the right solution for you.

How Long Does Composite Bonding Last?

Composite bonding will last around 5 years on average. The reason for this is that the resin that the composite is made from is not as hard as the natural enamel that your teeth have. Therefore, they can eventually wear down, chip or get stained. Your lifestyle choices will have an effect on how long your composite bonding will last – for example, if you drink a high quantity of coffee or red wine, then your teeth are more likely to be stained quickly. The same goes for if you are known for teeth grinding, this will wear down the composite more quickly.

Does Composite Bonding Ruin Your Teeth?

As composite bonding is a material which is placed over and in between your teeth to mimic the look of a natural tooth, it has no lasting effect on the natural enamel of your teeth. The treatment is completely non-invasive, no tooth structure is removed, and it can be easily reversed if you prefer. The only thing that happens to your teeth when the procedure takes place is the teeth are roughened – the structural integrity of the teeth will remain intact.

Can You Whiten Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding can provide you with whiter teeth and can act as a temporary cure for discoloured teeth, helping to give your new smile a brilliant shine. However, over time the composite can become stained as a result of consuming highly coloured food and drink and/or smoking. Due to the non-porous nature of the material used for the composite, it is not possible to whiten it drastically if this does occur.

Bleaching agents used in teeth whitening treatments are less effective on the composite than they are on your natural teeth. A solution to this however is to have your natural teeth whitened and then have your composite bonding put in (or replaced) as the composite will be designed to match the colour of your natural teeth.

What Is The Cost Of Composite Bonding?

The cost of composite bonding varies depending on the extent of the treatment you are looking to have and the damage that your teeth have already sustained. Generally, this treatment is not considered to be a part of traditional healthcare. When you have dental treatment in Turkey, the costs can be significantly cheaper than that in the UK and the US, while still using high-quality materials to give you the look you desire. Get in touch with our experts to find out more.
