Will my composite bonding look natural and how long will it last?

What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding involves the use of tooth-coloured synthetic resin, which bonds to your tooth. 

Composite resin dental material is shaped to the desired form and hardened with a special light. Composite can be used to fill chipped teeth or cavities caused by decay, to mask stained teeth, to change the shape or size of teeth and to close gaps to enhance your smile. When used for cosmetic purposes, the term composite veneer might be used.


Is Composite Bonding right for you?

Composite bonding, or composite veneers, can be a minimally invasive method to provide the smile you wish to achieve. The benefit of composite veneers is that the procedure often requires minimal to no tooth reduction and, after initial planning and assessment, can usually be completed in a single visit to your dentist. However, composite bonding may not be suitable to everyone. Therefore, it is important to be assessed by your dentist. Generally speaking, composite veneers can be a great choice for improvement of teeth that are predominantly healthy and minimally misaligned.


What will the appearance and longevity be like?

Today’s composite materials are applied in layers, sculpted to the teeth to create a desired shape, size and shade. This can lead to a result that is very natural.

It is difficult to determine the exact length of time composite veneers will last because every individual is different. Composite resin material is susceptible to chipping and staining over time. This means that maintenance will certainly be required. However, composite veneers can generally last anywhere between four to 10 years.
