Cosmetic Bonding

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Composite bonding is a dental technique that can transform damaged, chipped, broken, stained or teeth with unsightly gaps into beautiful pearly whites that dazzle, oftentimes in a single visit to your cosmetic dentist.

This treatment is done using composite resin and is an alternative to more complex treatments like orthodontics, dental implants, crowns and veneers that usually require much more time to be performed.

Composite Bonding treatments are usually performed in one clinical session and they are cheaper and completely reversible, which means that if in the future you decide to do orthodontic treatment, crowns, veneers or implants, you can still do it. This cosmetic treatment option is long lasting, resistant and restores aesthetics and function, offering the patient more confidence and self-esteem.

Several steps are involved in the composite bonding process:

  • Extensive cleaning of the tooth surface to remove any debris or tartar accumulation.
  • Preparation of colour-matched composite material
  • Protecting the tooth and keeping it dry with cotton rolls or a rubber dam
  • Shaping and gently roughing the surface with a special tool
  • Etching the tooth surface with a phosphoric-acid-based gel, to create the optimum composite bonding texture
  • Application of the bonding agent and curing by exposing it to a special light to activate and harden the material
  • Polishing and buffing of the new composite surface for a smooth, natural feel
