Composite bonding is a conservative treatment that swiftly restores a cosmetically compromised tooth. Once your tooth has been repaired using slender sheets of composite resin, the result will be practically identical to the real tooth enamel that makes up your neighboring teeth.
Composite resin is highly versatile for repairing teeth that need some cosmetic attention. Minor (and some moderate) fractures, chips, cracks, discoloration and gaps are problems that can be solved with composite bonding. More extensive damage to a tooth may be suited to a more robust restoration, like a crown.
As composite bonding is (in the main) a cosmetic solution for mending teeth, you will need to have healthy teeth and gums before treatment can go ahead.
Slim sheets of composite resin are adhered to the tooth that requires attention, and these are hardened with a UV light throughout, which sets them into place. Before beginning the process, your dentist will ensure the shade of the resin used resembles your own natural tooth structure.
