Composite bonding involves applying a tooth-coloured composite resin to one or more of your teeth to repair damage. The composite resin will closely match the colour of your natural teeth so it is undetected. Your dentist will clean the surface of the tooth, and then apply a liquid that bonds the tooth to the composite resin. As a final step, your dentist will harden the material with a UV light, and if necessary, further shape the tooth once the resin has hardened.
For those who are apprehensive about sitting in the dentist’s chair, there’s good news: it doesn’t require multiple visits to the dentist or anaesthesia, making it one of the more popular options.
For a healthy smile that will give you a confidence boost, look no further than composite bonding. It’s the inexpensive solution if you’ve got a chipped tooth, a gap, a discoloration, or even need an emergency repair.
