What is composite bonding teeth?

Composite bonding is one of the easiest ways to solve different dental problems including chipped or cracked teeth, decaying teeth, discolored teeth, spaces between teeth, or restoring lost teeth structure. Composite bonding involves applying a tooth coloured composite resin material to existing teeth. The resin is molded by dental experts so that it creates a perfect match with the surrounding teeth. It is widely used across the world for whitening or masking discoloured teeth, improving cosmetic structure, filling dental gaps or cavities, and repairing broken or fractured teeth. All in all, composite bonding or dental bonding is a perfect solution for solving minor dental imperfections.

Composite bonding is widely used for solving problems related to discoloured and stained teeth and fillings. In most cases, dentists recommend a teeth whitening treatment before conducting a composite bonding procedure. When used along with a teeth whitening treatment, dentists can achieve whiter teeth with less discolouration.

Composite bonding doesn’t require expensive aftercare products. Regular brushing of teeth preferably twice a day along with habitual use of dental floss ensures that your composite bonding lasts long.

Composite bonding is usually not recommended for chain smokers. Smoking causes extensive staining to teeth. Composite bonding is also susceptible to staining in the long run and hence it is not suitable for smokers.

Composite bonding may be used for filling single as well as multiple gaps in your front teeth. Dentists will match the colour of your teeth with the colour of the composite resin to ensure a natural look.

If you are suffering from teeth clenching, jaw clenching, teeth grinding, or bruxism, composite bonding is not recommended for you as it is not strong enough to sustain the pressure or force caused by clenching.
