One of the fastest and most effective ways to make improvements to one’s smile is through composite bonding treatment. This technique uses tooth-colored resin in order to adjust the appearance of teeth and to repair minor damage. At SmileWorld Dental, we are proud to offer composite bonding treatments that look incredibly natural, leaving our patients pleased with the amazing results.
There are many dental applications for composite bonding, including:
- Filling cavities
- Repairing minor damage
- Adjusting tooth color
- Reducing gaps between teeth
- Making spacing adjustments
- Adjusting tooth heights
- Correcting misshapen teeth
- Protecting tooth roots
Composite bonding treatments can be completed in just one visit to our practice. The first step is to clean any tooth that is designated for composite bonding. By examining the teeth closely, we will determine an exact shade of composite resin to use in the bonding procedure. Next any decay or deterioration that is present in the teeth will be removed, leaving the teeth clean and ready for treatment.
After prepping the teeth, we will begin applying the composite material in multiple layers. Each layer will be hardened individually until the desired thickness is achieved. From there, we will allow the substance to harden completely, and the teeth will be buffed and polished to provide a natural appearance. If maintained properly, the bonding should remain intact for up to ten years.
