What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is the process of applying tooth coloured filling material to the surface of the teeth to change the overall shape, size and colour of the tooth.

Composite edge bonding is where composite is added to the edges of the tooth to make them look more uniform and repair small chips or imperfections of the teeth

Situations where composite bonding is suitable:

Chipped tooth
General Wear
To improve aesthetic appearance of teeth or smile

The Composite Bonding Procedure:

During your composite bonding procedure, our experienced dental team will guide you through the following steps:

1. Consultation and Examination

We will begin with a thorough examination of your teeth and discuss your cosmetic goals. This initial step allows us to determine if composite bonding is the right treatment option for you.

2. Shade Selection

We will carefully select a composite resin shade that closely matches the color of your natural teeth, ensuring seamless integration and a natural-looking result.

3. Composite Application

In cases where tooth preparation is not required, the composite resin material will be directly applied to the tooth surface. Our skilled dentist will skillfully sculpt and shape the composite to achieve the desired form and symmetry. Special attention will be given to color blending, translucency, and texture to ensure a flawless result.

4. Bonding and Curing

Once the composite is in place, it will be bonded securely to your tooth using a specialized curing light. This process helps the composite resin harden and ensures its durability and longevity.

5. Finishing Touches

After the bonding process, any necessary adjustments will be made to perfect the shape and contour of your newly enhanced tooth. The bonded area will be polished to a high shine, seamlessly blending with your natural teeth.


Frequently Asked Questions

No Drilling No Needles or injections Same day smile transformation
The composites themselves are done in one appointment. We will always book a consultation appointment first. Most people will have a review appointment after to ensure they are completely happy.
The great majority of all cases are completed pain-free and without the need for local anaesthetic.
In most cases composite is applied with no obvious drilling to the natural tooth. For cases that require tooth adjustment, you will be advised beforehand in the consultation appointment.
As with most cosmetic dental procedures they will eventually need replacing. Typically we see good results of up to 5 years for composite veneers and 7 years for edge bonding, dependent upon care.
There is no minimum recommendation for this. In order to gain optimal aesthetic results most individuals require approximately 8-10 composite restorations. This allows for a more uniform and symmetrical smile.
Composite bonding is a single session treatment option which is great to correct smaller imperfections, chips, cracks and minor spacing between the teeth.

Veneers on the other hand are lab made ultra thin sheets of ceramic material which are shaped to fit onto the teeth. They usually require some removal of natural tooth structure to create enough space for the veneer to attach to the tooth. They are normally recommended for larger imperfections of the teeth and as they are lab made, are more costly than composite bonding.
We would always recommend straightening before the bonding as it helps. Slight minor misalignment can be masked with composite. However it is always advisable to straighten with braces or invisalign first.
The tooth surface is thoroughly cleaned and then prepared with a gel that roughens the surface microscopically. The putty like composite resin material is then applied using special instruments and brushes to sculpt to the desired shape, often in several layers. Using a special light, the material is then hardened. Further layers can then be added accordingly. The procedure is then completed with smoothing of the tooth surface and polishing.
The great majority of all cases are completed pain-free and without the need for local anaesthetic.
