Individuals of all ages often find there is an area of their smile they would like to improve. Whether it be a cavity or unsightly filling, or a broken or chipped tooth. Similar to other methods, Composite bonding is a technique that has been utilised for many years and can completely transform the pearly whites in a single visit to the clinic. During this process, a specialist will skillfully use the correct quantity and colour of the composite substance to resolve a number of oral issues.
Composite bonding is a mouldable material produced from acrylic resins and a number of fillers. This method of cosmetic dentistry is becoming increasingly popular for fillings due to its aesthetically pleasing appearance. Also, a dentist is able to completely match the shade, translucency, and texture of a natural tooth. As a result of recent advancements in technology, many professionals are beginning to adopt the use of CAD/CAM CEREC equipment to create ceramic fillings, which are both durable and attractive. The innovative method also allows patients to receive the full extent of the treatment in a single one-hour visit.
The procedure will often require the use of a local anaesthetic. The tooth is then cleaned, shaped, or roughened using a special tool and etched with a phosphoric-acid-based gel. This creates the optimum texture for the composite to adhere to. Then, the bonding agent is applied and exposed to a special light source to harden and set. Following this, the area is polished and buffed to give it a smooth finish.
One minor disadvantage is that it does not have the strength of many other restorative materials, including ceramic or porcelain. Additionally, it has a greater tendency to stain than natural teeth or traditional materials used for similar purposes.
While any dental professional can carry out this treatment, the artistic skill required means patients should ensure they fully trust the administrator.
The price of composite bonding depends largely on the type of procedure that is carried out, as well as the materials used and the experience of the cosmetic dentist.
