What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is a dental procedure used to enhance the appearance of teeth by applying a tooth-coloured resin material directly to the surface of the teeth. It is a popular cosmetic dentistry technique that can address various aesthetic issues, such as chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth.

During the procedure, the dentist first prepares the tooth surface, then carefully applies the composite resin, which is matched to the natural colour of the patient's teeth. The resin is shaped and sculpted to achieve the desired outcome, and then it is hardened using a special curing light. Once the bonding material is set, the dentist further refines and polishes it to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, resulting in a natural and improved appearance.

  • Versatile: it addresses both minor cosmetic imperfections and rebuild of lost tooth structure.
  • Non-invasive: it preserves the natural tooth structure without requiring removal.
  • Personalised: careful selection of composite resin to match their natural teeth colour seamlessly.
  • Quick: In a single visit, we can efficiently address minor cosmetic imperfections, leaving you with a beautifully restored smile.

Unlike natural teeth, composite bonding material cannot be whitened through traditional teeth whitening methods. Since the composite resin used in bonding is colour-matched to the patient's teeth during the initial procedure, it does not respond to bleaching agents. If you have composite bonding and wish to achieve a whiter smile, you may need to consider other cosmetic dental options, such as replacing the bonding with a lighter shade.

During the composite bonding procedure, patients typically experience little to no discomfort. The process is minimally invasive, and the dentist will use anaesthetics to numb the area before starting. Any preparation of the tooth surface, such as etching or bonding, is generally painless. After the procedure, some individuals may experience mild sensitivity in the treated teeth, but this usually subsides within a few days. Overall, composite bonding is considered a comfortable and well-tolerated cosmetic dental treatment.

What are Teeth Veneers?

Teeth veneers are ultra-thin, personalised shells made from premium materials like porcelain or composite resin. These custom-designed shells are carefully bonded to the front surface of the teeth, effectively masking imperfections and transforming smiles. Teeth veneers are a versatile cosmetic solution, capable of correcting issues such as chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth, leaving patients with a naturally beautiful and captivating smile that can last for years to come.

With our cutting-edge Digital Smile Design technology, you no longer have to wonder!

First, you get to see a preview of your new smile, and then you decide if you want to bring it to life! Thanks to this innovative procedure, we can show you a digital simulation of how your final result could look.

If you decide to proceed, we'll start the process of crafting your new smile. But what truly amazes our patients is that the preview isn't just on a screen—it's temporarily created directly in your mouth! This allows you to experience the shape, colour, and appearance of your new smile in real-time.

First, the dentist will carefully prepare the teeth by filing the most outer layer of the tooth to ensure a proper fit for the veneers. Next, precise impressions of the teeth are taken to create custom-made veneers. These the personalised veneers are bonded to the front surface of the teeth using a strong dental adhesive. The result is a stunning and natural-looking smile, concealing imperfections like discoloration, chips, or gaps.

When applied and maintained properly, veneers are not bad for your teeth. The preparation process, which involves removing a small amount of enamel, is irreversible, but it is a standard practice for most dental veneer treatments. As long as the veneers are well-crafted, and oral hygiene is diligently maintained, they can serve as a long-lasting and safe solution for improving the appearance of teeth.

Teeth veneers are typically designed to cover existing teeth, so they are not suitable for replacing missing teeth. If you have missing teeth, alternative dental procedures such as dental implants, bridges, or partial dentures may be recommended to restore your smile effectively.

The cost of teeth veneers can vary depending on the type of material used and the number of veneers needed. It is essential to consult with a dentist for a personalised evaluation and accurate cost estimate.

The lifespan of teeth veneers varies depending on the materials used and how well they are cared for. On average, veneers last between 10 to 15 years but they can last much longer with proper oral hygiene practices, regular dental check-ups, and avoiding habits that may damage the veneers (like biting on hard food) can significantly extend their longevity.

Teeth veneers can be an effective cosmetic option for improving the appearance of slightly crooked teeth. However, they may not be suitable for severely misaligned teeth. In such cases, orthodontic treatments like braces or clear aligners may be recommended to achieve more significant tooth alignment before considering veneers as the final cosmetic enhancement. A consultation with us can help determine the most appropriate treatment plan for individual needs.
