What is a Composite Bond?
Composite Bonding is used to help restore broken, chipped or cracked teeth. The bonding is made from a tooth colored putty-like resin or plastic. It is shaped to the form of the original tooth and then hardened with a special UV light or laser.
What are the benefits of Composite Bonding?
There are many benefits to composite bonding, making them ideal for patients with a range of other restorative options. Unlike dental crowns or porcelain veneers, there is little to no preparation required with restoration through composite bonding. This in-office procedure takes about 30 minutes, saving the patient time and discomfort. The procedure is also non-invasive and requires no anesthesia. Bonded sites are fairly durable and can last up to ten years before needing to be repaired or replaced. Lastly, the price per tooth is low enough to fit patients with a budget.
