What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is a dental procedure that involves applying a tooth-coloured composite resin material to a damaged or discoloured tooth. This material is then bonded to the tooth using a special bonding agent and cured with a high-intensity light. The result is a tooth that looks and feels like a natural tooth, with minimal visible signs of repair.
Composite bonding is commonly used to repair minor chips, cracks, and other damage to teeth. It can also be used to close gaps between teeth, improve the appearance of stained or discoloured teeth, and even reshape teeth for a more pleasing appearance.

How Does Composite Bonding Work?

The composite bonding process starts with a thorough cleaning of the affected tooth to remove any debris or bacteria. Next, the tooth is etched with a special solution to create a rough surface that will help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The composite resin material is then applied to the tooth and shaped to match the contours of the surrounding teeth. A special curing light is used to harden the material and bond it to the tooth.
Benefits of Composite Bonding:
Non-invasive procedure
Minimally affects to natural tooth structure
Affordable compared to other dental procedures
Can be completed in a single visit to the dentist
Can improve the overall appearance of teeth

What is Edge Bonding?

Edge bonding is a dental procedure that involves applying a thin layer of composite resin material to the edge of a tooth. This can be done to repair a chipped or broken tooth, or to protect a tooth that is at risk of further damage. Edge bonding can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth by adding length or changing its shape.

How Does Edge Bonding Work?

The edge bonding process is similar to composite bonding, but it only involves applying the composite resin material to the edge of the tooth. The tooth is cleaned and etched to create a rough surface for the bonding material to adhere to, and then the composite resin material is applied and cured with a special light.
Benefits of Edge Bonding:
Non-invasive procedure
Minimally affects natural tooth structure
Can be completed in a single visit to the dentist
Can protect a tooth from further damage
Can improve the overall appearance of teeth

Edge Bonding & Composite Bonding FAQ's

If you don't see the information you are looking for, Contact Us, our team are waiting to assist you.
No, both composite bonding and edge bonding are typically painless procedures. Some patients may experience sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures for a short time after the procedure, but this usually subsides within a few days.
With proper care, composite bonding and edge bonding can last for several years. However, they may need to be touched up or replaced over time, depending on diet and overall dental care.
Composite bonding and edge bonding can be used on most teeth, but they may not be suitable for large areas of damage or for teeth that are severely decayed, or severe misalignment.
Composite bonding and edge bonding are often considered cosmetic dental procedures, and as such, they may not be fully covered by insurance. However, it's always a good idea to check with your insurance provider to see what your coverage options are.
Like any dental procedure, there may be some risks or side effects associated with composite bonding and edge bonding. These may include sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, slight discomfort during the procedure, or a slight difference in colour between the bonding material and the surrounding teeth. However, these risks are generally minor and can be managed with proper care and follow-up with your dentist.

We often get asked "Can white fillings be used for all teeth?"

Answer ➡️ White fillings can be used for most teeth, including front teeth and back teeth. However, in certain cases where there is excessive tooth decay or damage, or when a more extensive restoration is required, alternative treatments such as dental crowns may be more suitable.

Taking time to explain everything and what to expect, I never felt pressured or rushed it was exactly what I needed to gain some confidence.

This practice is by far the very best I have been to - ever! ALL the staff are amazing, from the... warmest of welcomes on reception, to the most fantastic and 'state of the art' dental treatment by an experienced, professional and extremely caring dental team. The premises are inviting, relaxing, and absolutely spotless. I've instantly gone from a terrified patient to feeling reassured and happy with my treatment plan - in a very short period of time. I just wish we had found them sooner, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them (in fact I do so at every opportunity!) Never before has a dentist extracted my teeth without sedation, but Dr Johan did so with the very minimum of discomfort. I have now regained my smile, and could not be happier - thank you!read more

We lived in Canada for 20 years and when we returned to the UK eight years ago we struggled to find... a hygienist as thorough as our Canadian hygienist. Then we found Ramsbottom Dental Clinic and Kelly the hygienist. She is thorough but gentle and a lovely friendly person. The new premises are lovely with a large airy and bright waiting area. The receptionists are great and always make you feel welcome. I thoroughly recommend this dental practice.Lesley Welbourneread more
