Composite bonding (also known as tooth bonding or dental bonding) is a non invasive procedure that can usually
be carried out in just one visit and is a fast and effective way to fix minor cosmetic issues, without causing further
damage to your teeth.

Bonding is usually used for filling chips, fractures or gaps between teeth, or for fixing discolouration. For
composite bonding to be applied, the surface of the existing tooth only has to be roughened to help the resin to
bond, meaning the structure of the tooth remains intact. A composite resin is attached to a tooth and shaped to
restore its original appearance. The colour of the resin is matched to your teeth, so it will appear as though it is a
natural part of the tooth. The composite is hardened using UV light as soon as its applied, resulting in a tooth that
can comfortably bite down by the end of the appointment.

Composite bonding can be a cheaper alternative to crowns or veneers, it’s also minimal invasive process and
with regular brushing and good oral hygiene, your composite bonds should last for years.
