Composite bonding (also known as dental bonding) offers a solution for minor damage or gaps in the teeth. Dental bonding is commonly used to fill chips, fractures or gaps between teeth or to correct discoloration.

A composite resin is fitted to a tooth and shaped to restore its original appearance. The color of the resin matches your teeth, so it will look like a natural part of the tooth.


What is the procedure for composite bonding?

Your dentist will start by choosing a resin color that best matches your tooth so that the resin fixture looks natural. Your tooth will then be prepared for treatment by slightly roughening the surface. It will then be coated with a liquid that helps the resin to adhere smoothly. The resin will be applied and formed into the desired shape. It is hardened with a polymerization light before being reshaped and polished by your dentist until it matches the rest of the tooth.


Can you have a complex connection with gum disease?

If you have gum disease or have had it in the past, you may notice that your gums have receded (shrunk). This can cause gaps to appear between some of your teeth. Composite bonding can be used to cover these areas. However, if you still have gum disease, your dentist should first treat and resolve it.


How do I take care of my composite bonding?

Avoid tea, coffee, smoking and food that can get dirty for 48 hours after the procedure is completed. Brush your teeth often and visit your hygienist regularly to maintain good oral health. This will help your composite bonding stay clean and stain-free. Avoid biting nails or chewing objects, such as pen caps, which can crush the material. The bondings are not as strong as a normal tooth, so it is important to take precautions to avoid damage.
