What is Composite Bonding?
Composite bonding is the process of applying tooth coloured filling material (composite) to the surface of teeth to change the shape, size and colour. Composite edge bonding is where composite is added to the edges of the tooth to make them look more uniform and repair small chips or imperfections of the teeth. The process does not damage the tooth, and usually, no changes to the original tooth structure are required.
Composite bonding is suitable for repairing chipped teeth, help to improve the appearance of stains and general wear, and can be used to improve the overall aesthetic appearance of teeth.
How long does it last?
Composite bonding is considered to be a permanent restoration of the teeth, however the longevity of the treatment can vary from person to person. Good oral hygiene and regular care will ensure the best longevity of the material. The average lifespan is 5-10 years, with occasional maintenance required.
