Procedure for Composite Bonding
Treatments usually takes less than 1 hour, can be carried out in one appointment and there is no damage to your teeth. Local anaesthetic is usually only needed if the dental bonding is being used to fill a tooth with a cavity. The dentist will choose a bonding colour that matches the patient’s teeth making it nearly impossible to tell it is not your tooth.
Firstly, your dentist will use a shade guide to choose a colour of composite that closely matches your natural teeth. If you wish to whiten your teeth before having Dental bonding the dentist will arrange this for you. Your dentist will roughen the surface of the tooth, and then apply a liquid that allows the bonding agent to stick to the tooth.
Your dentist will apply the composite resin over the liquid and then harden the material with visible blue light. If necessary, your dentist can further shape the tooth after the resin hardens.
Composite Bonding Aftercare and Maintenance
After the procedure, it is important to avoid habits such as biting fingernails, chewing pens or using your teeth to tear things open as this could cause your Dental Bondings to chip. If your teeth feel sharp after Dental Bonding treatment it is important to tell your dentist so that they can assess what needs to be done.
Follow good oral hygiene practices after your composite bonding treatment – remember to brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day, floss, use mouthwash once or twice a day and keep appointments as advised by your dentist.
