A Quick Solution to Enhance Your Smile
Composite bonding is commonly used to fill gaps in teeth that may develop over time due to tooth movement. This procedure involves the careful application of composite resin, which is shaped and moulded onto the tooth to restore its original appearance. The colour of the resin is matched to the shade of your tooth, ensuring a natural look.
Benefits of Composite Bonding:
- Non-invasive procedure.
- Usually completed in just one appointment.
- Does not cause damage to your existing teeth.
- Provides a quick and effective solution for minor cosmetic issues.
- With proper oral hygiene and regular cleaning, composite bonds can last for many years.
- Unlike Veneers, Composite Bonding is fully reversible, allowing you the freedom to change your mind and feel confident about your smile.

Composite Bonding with Teeth Whitening
Composite Bonding can also be suitable for the treatment of stained teeth and may be applied with Teeth Whitening treatments to enhance the brightness of your smile.
It is generally recommended to undergo teeth whitening before opting for composite bonding. This is because the composite resin is colour-matched to your teeth after the whitening treatment, and once applied, the bonding material cannot be further whitened.
How to take care of your Composite Bonding?
Consider the following guidelines in order to provide for appropriate care and maintenance of composite bonding:
- Avoid consuming tea, coffee, and smoking for at least 48 hours after the treatment.
- Regularly visit your hygienist and maintain a consistent brushing routine to ensure the longevity of your Composite Bonding.
- Avoid biting your nails or using your teeth to bite on hard objects, as this can potentially cause the resin to chip.
By following these practices you can expect your composite bonds to last for many years to come!
