What does the treatment involve?

After an initial consultation confirming suitability for this procedure and that the rest of the mouth is healthy, the treatment appointment/s can be arranged.

The tooth surface is prepared with a gel. The bonding agent and tooth coloured material is then applied to the tooth’s surface, shaped and sculpted to create the desired effect. The material is set in layers with a blue light. Finally, the composite is polished to achieve a high shine. Subsequent appointments are arranged for further polishing and minor modifications as needed.

The composite is matched to the shade of your teeth so that it blends in naturally. Some patients choose to have a course of whitening before treatment in order to lighten their teeth, as composite will not lighten.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will other people be able to tell when someone has composite bonding done to their teeth?

No, composite bonding is coloured to match the shade of your teeth. It is also possible to mimic natural shapes and imperfections.

Is composite bonding the same thing as getting porcelain veneers?

No, composite bonding and porcelain veneers are separate treatments. Composite bonding or composite veneers involve using a material that is reshaped to mimic the appearance of a tooth and hardened using a light. These can be made by the dentist or by a lab technician.
Porcelain veneers are made by the technician in a dental laboratory. They are thin pieces of porcelain that are placed over and adhered to the teeth. They can involve significant tooth preparation.

Is there a lot of preparation involved when undergoing a procedure involving composite bonding?

No, the procedure may require no tooth preparation and can take as little as 45 minutes.

Are there any special requirements after composite bonding?

Maintaining excellent oral hygiene is key for a beautiful, healthy smile and will help composite to last as long as possible. Avoiding direct, high impact forces such as nail biting, hard foods and other habits will help your composite restorations to last much longer. Avoiding smoking is also strongly recommended as this can discolour composites over time.
