Composite bonding is a contemporary method of restoring teeth, either for aesthetic reasons or to replace missing tooth structure. It involves shaping or enhancing the color of existing teeth by bonding a tooth-colored resin material to them.
We attach the resin material extremely strongly, polish it up, and it will endure for many years. Just about every patient can profit with composite bonding.
What Is the Purpose of Composite Bonding?
Bonding is mainly aesthetic and is not needed. In most situations, bonding doesn’t really require the elimination of any dentition. It’s a compound that’s attached to the teeth so give them the shape and color you desire.
Keep the structure of your teeth intact.
- Cosmetic dental bonding
Because we don’t have to extract any tooth structure with composite bonding, it’s a great option. We apply directly to the tooth to connect. It will take 5-6 years for the repair to need to be refined or repaired in some way. The procedure of composite bonding is extremely painless. There is:
- There is no need for anesthesia
- There is no need to drill.
- There will be no changes to the tooth structure.
Simply polish the teeth, then add the resin substance gently and finish with a really high-grade polish.
- After Orthodontic Treatment
After braces, we often provide composite bonding to our customers. When teeth are misplaced, they are more prone to wear and chipping, particularly on the front teeth. When teeth have been straightened, this may be highly visible. After the braces have been removed, we can use bonding to rebuild the teeth. This leads to teeth that are straight and properly formed, with remarkable effects.
- Teeth that are damaged and discolored
Damaged and discolored teeth, notably those with white spots on the front, can be repaired by composite bonding.
We can repair the tooth or teeth and make them seem almost flawless again by removing a little portion of the defect from the front of the tooth (we normally don’t require anesthesia because the blemish is usually superficial).
Things that You Need to Know About Composite Bonding:
- Crooked Teeth Composite Bonding
Composite bonding can assist to make slightly crooked teeth look straighter. Your dentist can conceal or mascara crooked teeth by using resin in key locations, enhancing the look of your smile. Please bear in mind, however, that composite bonding can only rectify small position issues. Prior to bonding, we would propose orthodontic therapy if the tooth were substantially misplaced.
- Bottom-Teeth Composite Bonding
Composite bonding can also be utilized to improve the appearance of the bottom teeth, but various variables must be examined first, such as the patient’s bite and how the top and bottom teeth connect.
Dental bonding is not a suitable option if the patient has bruxism or suffers from teeth grinding since the composite resin is not strong enough to withstand the stresses and may fracture.
- Is Composite Bonding a Good Option for Closing Gaps in My Front Teeth?
For filling minor gaps between teeth, composite bonding is a great alternative. With bonding, you can get spectacular outcomes for a single gap or several minor gaps between all of your teeth.
The composite resin is applied to the teeth by the dentist, either entirely filling the gaps between them or making them more inconspicuous if this is not feasible.
If the gap is too wide, the dentist may recommend a brief orthodontic therapy before proceeding with the bonding to prevent creating teeth that are overly large or disproportioned.
- Does It Affect You?
The technique of composite bonding is painless. No need for an injection and the teeth and gums are not drilled.
- What are the Advantages of Composite Bonding?
- No injections are necessary for this process, which is painless.
- Drilling is not required since the tooth structure is retained.
- Durability – Bonding is predicted to last 5 to 7 years if the patient takes proper care of it and visits the hygienist on a regular basis.
- No lab work is required, and the procedure may be completed in just one visit to the dentist.
- Priceless expensive than other cosmetic procedures
- When it comes to composite bonding, how long does it last?
On average, composite bonding lasts 5 years. The substance isn’t as tough as your actual teeth. It may deteriorate, chip, crack, or get soiled. All these concerns have an impact on its longevity.
