Composite Bonding

Composite bonding provides a conservative treatment option for patients. Composite bonding gives you an aesthetic enhancement of your front teeth.


Composite BondingComposite bonding is a minimally invasive treatment option in cosmetic dentistry to improve your smile. This technique uses tooth-colored composite, giving you durable results and an immediate smile makeover at an economical price.

Composite bonding procedure involves preparation of the involved tooth/teeth, conditioning of the tooth surface, applying tooth colored composite material, curing it with high-intensity light, followed by finishing and polishing the restoration.

Composite bonding can be used for the following dental conditions:

  • Broken fractured teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Spacing between teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • A cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • Prior to getting porcelain veneers to get an idea of the end result


WebMD offers the following procedure description for composite tooth-bonding:

What is the procedure for having a tooth bonded?

Preparation. Little advance preparation is needed for dental bonding. Anesthesia is often not necessary unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth. Your dentist will use a shade guide to select a composite resin color that will closely match the color of your tooth.

The bonding process. Next, the surface of the tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid applied. These procedures help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored, putty-like resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape. An ultraviolet light or laser is then used to harden the material. After the material is hardened, your dentist will further trim and shape it, and polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.

Time-to-completion. Dental bonding takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete.
