What is Tooth Bonding or Composite Veneers?
Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that can be used to fix chipped teeth, breaks and cavities, aiming to correct many minor defects and is a quick and easy procedure to achieve. It is considered to be one of the most affordable cosmetic options, can can be done in one visit.
It refers to the procedure and the substance and can also be known as tooth bonding. In otherwords, it is simply a white "filling" although for cosmetic purposes often, there is no drilling or preparation of the teeth.
What is it?
Bonding refers to the procedure and the substance and can also be known as composite resin.
The bonding substance is a white colour and is flexible as it can be applied to your teeth and be shaped in many ways. Bonding your teeth can be used to fill cavities and is also known as “composite fillings” or “white filling”. Our clinicians first prepare the tooth, and then resin is moulded to the shape required to repair the blemish. Once the substance is applied and shaped, our dentists can use a special curing light to harden it. This is then trimmed and polished to a final finish. To get the best result, our dentists take the colour and shade of your teeth to match with the composite we use to get the most aesthetic result.
What is it used for?
Composite bonding can be used to correct defects such as:
- Small gaps between front teeth
- Slight crookedness
- Slight misalignment
- Small chips or surface cracks
- Discoloration that will not respond to tooth whitening
