Composite bonding treatment is a form of cosmetic dentistry that is fast, inexpensive and minimally invasive. This form of treatment primarily aims to improve the aesthetics of your teeth and your overall smile using a tooth-coloured composite tough and durable plastic material (resin). This material is applied onto the tooth that has been chipped or cracked, damaged or broken. The composite resin is shaped and moulded on the damaged tooth to give it a natural appearance and to make it appear straighter, whiter and better. Apart from repairing your damaged tooth, dental bonding treatment or dental tooth bonding is also used by dentists to fill up the gaps in between your teeth created by missing tooth. Local anaesthesia is not usually needed for composite bonding treatment unless the bonding is being done to fill up a decayed tooth. Prior to applying the bonding material, your dentist will prepare the surface of the tooth by roughening it and applying a conditioning liquid so that the composite bonding adheres well onto the teeth. Once the tooth is prepared, tooth-coloured, putty like material is applied, moulded and smoothened to give it the desired shape, such that its appearance is in line with the rest of your teeth. Post the application an ultraviolet light is applied on to the tooth to harden the material. After the material gets hardened, your dentist will further shape and polish it to give it a final touch. The entire process takes not more than 30-60 minutes of time to get completed.
