What is Composite Bonding for Teeth?

If you want to improve the look of gapped teeth, stained teeth, slightly crooked teeth, or other aesthetic issues, composite bonding may be right for you.

Bonding is an affordable, cosmetic dental treatment in which a tooth-colored composite resin is placed directly on existing teeth. The entire procedure can be completed within a single appointment, sometimes even under an hour depending on the desired results.

When might you need cosmetic dental bonding?

  • Discolored Teeth: The bonding agent can cover the entire surface of a tooth to brighten a discolored tooth.
  • Chipped Teeth/Tooth Gaps: It can also be attached along the edges of tooth that’s been chipped or to fill in a tooth gap.
  • Misaligned Teeth: Bonding can also be used to correct the appearance of teeth that are misaligned to a small degree.
  • Disproportionate Teeth: For patients with short or small teeth, composite bonding can lengthen or widen teeth that appear disproportionate next to others.
  • Weakened Teeth/Exposed Roots: Teeth with decay and cavities can be held together in place with strong, composite bonding. Or, if a patient’s gums are receding and expose tooth roots, composite bonding can cover roots for extra protection.

The composite bonding lasts for about 3-5 years before needing to be replaced. The material might either wear down or begin to stain, but will last longer with regular dental care including daily brushing and flossing and professional dental cleanings twice a year.
