By using composite bonding, your dentist can restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and rejuvenate your smile!

Procedure

Composite resin is a putty-like material, matched to the natural tooth colour for repair. The surface of the tooth is firstly roughened to help the material adhere in place.

Smooth procedure

The paste is then layered, shaped and smoothed to the tooth to create the desired contour. The composite is then set by a heat-activated light to secure placement.

As good as new

After the material is hardened, your dentist will polish the area to match the lustre of the natural tooth. The whole procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete.

Cosmetic Re-contouring

Gum contouring involves contouring and reshaping the gum line that surrounds the teeth. This can be done to one tooth to even your gum line, or to several teeth to expose more of the tooth and create a proportionate smile.

Benefits of composite bonding:
  • Repair chips or cracks in the teeth
  • Re-shape teeth to make them appear longer
  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Alters the shape of the teeth
  • Repairs decayed teeth
  • Improve appearance of discoloured teeth
