Why composite bonding
Composite bonding is used to repair fractured teeth that appear at the front of the mouth. It is also used on patients that suffer from wear or grinding, it can be used to build the edges of the teeth back up. It can be used to improve the overall appearance of the natural teeth.
People who are unhappy with the shape and size of their teeth can consider composite bonding to improve this rather than porcelain veneers. If you required a whiter smile and composite bonding, you would need to consider teeth whitening prior to composite bonding as the dentist usually matches the shade of the composite to the natural tooth colour in order for it to blend in.
Bonding is often performed after finishing a teeth straightening treatment. Once the teeth are all in their final position, bonding would provide an overall symmetry by fixing chipped corners for example.
While composite bonding is an amazing, cost effective way of treating the teeth, it is not a long term treatment, the resin material can stain over time with heavily staining foods, so people do have to consider replacement treatments when required.
