What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding, often referred to as dental bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure used to improve the appearance of teeth. It involves the application of a tooth-coloured resin material to the tooth’s surface. This material is then sculpted, shaped, and polished to blend seamlessly with the natural teeth. Composite bonding can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, or even gapped teeth.

The Composition of Composite Bonding Material

The composite bonding material is primarily composed of resin, a type of plastic, mixed with finely ground glass particles. This combination creates a durable material that can be custom-tinted to match the natural shade of your teeth. While the composition contains plastic, it is essential to understand that dental-grade resin is safe and has been used in dentistry for decades.

Safety of Dental-Grade Resin for Composite BondingSafety of Dental-Grade Resin

Dental-grade resin used in composite bonding is considered safe for teeth. It has undergone rigorous testing and research to ensure it meets the necessary safety standards. This resin is biocompatible, meaning it is well-tolerated by the human body and does not cause adverse reactions when properly applied.

Minimal Invasive Nature

One of the safety advantages of composite bonding is its minimal invasive nature. Unlike some other dental procedures, such as veneers or crowns, composite bonding requires little to no removal of the natural tooth structure. This means that the tooth’s overall integrity remains intact.

Allergies and Sensitivities

While dental-grade resin is generally safe, some individuals may have allergies or sensitivities to certain components of the material. It’s essential to communicate any known allergies or sensitivities with your dentist before undergoing composite bonding. Our dentist can then take appropriate precautions or recommend alternative treatments if necessary.

Durability and Longevity

Composite bonding is durable and can last for several years with proper care. However, it may not be as resistant to staining as some other dental materials. Avoiding habits like smoking and excessive consumption of staining foods and beverages can help maintain the longevity and appearance of bonded teeth.
