Composite bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment to give a touch-up solution to your chipped or gapped teeth. It also hides your teeth staining. Composite bonding gives your teeth a straighter appearance with a whiter smile. The procedure involves molding composite resin on the teeth and unlike porcelain veneers, you get this treatment done usually in just a single appointment.
Composite bonding is as reliable and yet more pocket-friendly solution in comparison to veneers and other treatment alternatives in cosmetic dentistry.
Camden High Street Dental Practice has a high success rate in providing a composite bonding treatment to correct the appearance of chipped, broken or fractured teeth for patients all over London and its nearby areas.
What are the steps involved in a composite bonding treatment?
The treatment procedure is quite simple; the dentist uses a shade guide to select the composite resin color that accurately matches the natural colour of your teeth.
In the next step, the expert lightly etches your damaged tooth to roughen its surface. A conditioning liquid is then applied to the tooth. This liquid works as the adhesive for the bonding material.
Once the preparation part gets over, the dentist molds tooth-coloured, putty-like resin, till it comes to a proper shape. Then, it is hardened by using a laser beam or UV rays.
The hardened bonding material is then trimmed and shaped for the final time. Then it is polished till it matches the shine of the rest of your tooth surface.

Enables you to display a natural, healthy smile that immediately catches one’s attention.
No collateral damage to your teeth; they remain strong and healthy.
Treatment is usually over in a single session.
It is also used to protect your exposed tooth root resulting from gum recession.
