What Is Composite Resin Bonding?
Composite resin is a unique material used by dentists in a variety of ways. This substance, which mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel, is a clay-like material that dentist can mould onto a tooth, harden with a special light, and polish till it has the same shine as natural tooth enamel. The results look just like the natural tooth, ensuring that the repair is indistinguishable.
Composite resin bonding is a fantastic solution for people who want a minimally invasive option to repair and protect their teeth. Composite bonding has a massive range of uses and can improve the overall look and function of the teeth.
How Is Composite Resin Bonding Used?
Repair of tooth decay – Cavities typically require a dentist to fill the area, which prevents corrosion from spreading and keeps bacteria from entering the tooth and causing an infection. Many patients prefer composite resin fillings over metal fillings as they are natural-looking and look like typical fillings. Metal fillings also contain mercury, which is toxic to human beings.
Breakage – patients who have cracks or chips on their teeth may use composite resin bonding to repair the tooth and bring the tooth back to its original shape and size. We can also repair breakage with porcelain veneers.
Address gaps between teeth – a small piece of composite resin bonding placed in between teeth where a gap is present will close the gap in a natural-looking way.
Composite bonding is such a versatile treatment, and the results are visually astonishing. If you’re interested in changing aspects of your smile, composite bonding is a minimally invasive, easy way to adjust and tweak specific issues to give you an overall improvement in your smile.
