Composite Bonding

One of the easiest ways to quickly improve your smile is through composite bonding. The procedure consists of using tooth-colored resin to restore the appearance and function of teeth that are damaged or decayed.

People receive composite bonding for several reasons, such as:

  • Filling cavities
  • Repairing damaged teeth
  • Recoloring teeth
  • Correcting spacing issues
  • Adjusting height of teeth
  • Fixing misshapen teeth
  • Protecting the roots of teeth

Composite bonding can usually be completed in just one visit. The first step is to clean the designated tooth and determine the specific shade of resin that will be used. Any deterioration or decay that is present will need to be removed at this time. The tooth will then be treated with composite material, which is applied in multiple layers. Each layer is individually hardened using a dental curing light.

Once the tooth reaches the desired level of thickness, the composite material will be allowed to fully harden so it can obtain the proper consistency. The treatment ends with the tooth receiving a polish to give it a nice, even finish and a natural look. If cared for properly, it is expected that the bonding will last between five and ten years.
