Composite Bonding

A pearly smile is a necessary ingredient for achieving success in your personal and professional life. You feel more confident as you smile, and confidence lets you meet life’s challenges more effectively.

Even if your natural teeth are not ideal, there is no reason to restrain your ambitions. A composite bonding treatment can help you restore cracked and decayed teeth, as well as hide gaps between teeth painlessly and effortlessly.
Dr Juliane Scandian offers composite bonding treatments in Milton Keynes that provide patients with successful attachments between the filling material and the tooth’s original enamel and dentin.

What is Dental Composite Bonding?

Dental composite bonding is a leading cosmetic procedure that is full of restorative benefits. Using composite bonding resins, Dr Juliane Scandian can repair your chipped front teeth or hide minor aesthetic defects. Composite resins for bonding cracked teeth actually stick with your teeth changing shape.

Direct composite bonding is used to recreate a smile in an additive manner, where little or no tooth reduction is needed. Direct bonding, in the hands of a skilled operator, is less costly than porcelain veneers and crowns and can be long-lasting with proper maintenance.

Some of the benefits of composite bonding are:

Composite Bonding Treatment
  • Patient-friendly procedure that can be recommended for children, youth and adults

  • Costs much less than other dental procedures

  • Painless, so there is no need to use anaesthesia

  • Bonding materials have the same colour as your tooth

  • Composite resins are laid directly on your tooth, so laboratory customising is not necessary

Questions & Answers about Composite Bonding in Milton Keynes

The cosmetic dental composite bonding procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. Because it is so time-intensive, teeth bonding may not be the best option when working on many teeth. Dr Juliane Scandian provides Composite Bonding in Milton Keynes, and the procedure for each tooth includes:

  • Using a shade guide to choose the composite resin colour that is most similar to the tooth being repaired.
  • Roughening the tooth’s surface then coats it lightly with a liquid, both of which help the bonding material stick to your natural tooth.
  • Applying the tooth-coloured resin to the tooth and moulds it to the desired shape.
  • Using a blue spectrum light to harden the material.
  • Trimming and shaping the hardened resin so that it fits your mouth and your bite.

Before the procedure, Dr Juliane Scandian and the Sorriso Design Dental Clinic team will discuss the treatment options with you. You learn the pros and cons of each option, as well as the costs involved. If you decide on cosmetic teeth composite bonding in Milton Keynes, we can usually do it right away.

During the procedure, your cosmetic dentist in Milton Keynes first numbs the area in your mouth, especially if the damage to the tooth being repaired is severe. You shouldn’t experience any pain, but you may experience some sensitivity. Dr Juliane may ask you to bite down several times while she shapes the resin to fit your mouth. She trims the excess so that the bonding material is smooth and fits your bite perfectly.

After the procedure, you may go through a short adjustment period. Still, soon you’ll be chewing better and speaking clearer than ever before. Follow any special instructions for aftercare, such as not biting hard candy or ice, which you should never do anyway.

For the first 48 hours after the procedure, you may need to avoid foods and drinks that can stain your teeth. But once the bonding process is complete, your previously chipped or broken teeth have been rendered much more aesthetically pleasing.

The spaces between teeth that used to bother you are now less noticeable.

Over time, the composite resin can chip.

Avoid biting your fingernails or chewing on pens or sharp objects. Cigarette smoke can permanently stain your teeth and the bonding material. With proper care, teeth composite bonding can last for years.

Dental composite bonding is usually more cost-effective than dental veneers, which makes composite bonding a good choice for treating cosmetic concerns on a budget.

Another advantage is that composite bonding doesn’t require your cosmetic dentist to remove as much enamel as when fitting veneers.
