Composite bonding (or composite veneers) involves applying a thin layer of composite resin material to the front surface of teeth, sculpted to achieve the desired shape. It can be used to repair cracks, chips, tooth wear and other defects, improving the shape and colour of the tooth. It is available in a wide range of colour shades to match natural or restored teeth.
In many cases, composite bonding is applied to several front teeth as part of a smile makeover, and can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. It may also be used in combination with other restorative treatments, such as crowns or implants.
Your teeth and gums need to be in good health for composite bonding, so it cannot be used in all cases. Some patients may need to complete other treatments before composite bonding, including visits to the hygienist. Some cases will require a smile design analysis, including preparation of models, before composite bonding.
For further information on composite bonding, please read our patient information leaflet. To find out if you would be suitable, please book a no-obligation consultation, or simply ask your dentist at your next appointment.
