Composite bonding

Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that entails the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to enhance the appearance of your existing teeth. It’s an effective solution for repairing chipped, fractured, or discolored teeth.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

  • Convenient: Most cases can be complete with a single visit to the dental clinic;
  • Affordable: Can be completed directly in the chair (no further costs of additional technological assessments);

  • Suitability: Composite bonding is suitable for most patients and can be done at any age (optimal gum health is the only requirement);
  • Reversible: When no drilling has been done, composite bonding is 100% reversible;
  • Safe: The failure rate of composite bonding is remarkably low and easy to fix;
  • Beautifully-looking: The aesthetic results of cosmetic bonding are optimal, and it is virtually unnoticeable to others.
