What Is Composite Bonding?

 

  • Composite bonding is a modern way to restore teeth, either for cosmetic reasons or to build up tooth structure that has been lost. It involves bonding a tooth coloured resin material to existing teeth to reshape them or improve their colour.
  • We bond on very strongly the resin material, polish it up, and this will last for many years.
  • Composite bonding is appropriate for pretty much every patient.
  • “Any little imperfection can be improved with composite bonding. Large gaps between teeth and badly broken down teeth can be built up again with this very conservative treatment”.Dr. Niall Vallely

Why Is Composite Bonding Necessary?

 

  • Bonding is not necessary, it is purely cosmetic. Bonding does not require the dentist to remove any part of your tooth usually.
  • It is composite material that is glued to your teeth to give them your preferred shape or colour.

Keep Tooth Structure Intact

 

  • Composite bonding is particularly great because we don’t remove any tooth structure. To bond, we add directly onto the tooth.
  • The restoration will last 5-6 years before it needs to be polished up or repaired in some way.
  • Composite bonding is a completely pain free procedure.
  • No anaesthetic is required.
    No drilling is required.
  • Just polishing of the teeth, and then gently adding on the resin material and then giving that a very high grade polish at the end

After Orthodontic Treatment

 

  • We often provide composite bonding to our patients after braces. Often when the teeth are misaligned, they can get a lot of wear and chipping especially on the front teeth.
  • This can be very noticeable when the teeth have been straightened. We can then build up the teeth after the braces have been removed with bonding.
  • This results in straight and properly shaped teeth and the results can be dramatic.

Damaged & Discoloured Teeth

 

  • We can also provide composite bonding to damaged and discoloured teeth especially teeth with white marks on the front (a very common problem in Ireland due to the fluoride in water).
  • By removing a little of the blemish from the front of the tooth (often we don’t need anaesthetic as the blemish is usually shallow) we can restore the tooth or teeth and make them look pretty much perfect again.

Considering Going Abroad For Dental Bonding? Wait!

 

  • We’ve seen a number of dental bonding cases in recent times that have not gone well. We’re sorry to say that this is typically as a result of people going to Turkey to see a dentist for a ‘cheaper’ price.
  • If this is something you are thinking about doing, we would suggest that you take a moment to reflect on the following:
  • If there is an issue with your teeth after your treatment abroad, you have nowhere to turn.
    Clinics in Eastern Europe are not regulated by any dental bodies
    If you have a dispute with a clinic, it’s up to you to resolve it
    Bear in mind that while the price of the dental work may seem affordable, you will also need to pay for flight, hotel, food and transportation
  • We also encourage people who are considering going abroad for dental work to book a free consultation with us. That way, at least you can make a more informed decision as to what your options are.

Booking Your Consultation

  • You can book via our website for your composite bonding consultation!
  • We will talk about the full range of possible treatments, whether it be orthodontics, veneers or the dental bonding.
  • We often offer bonding in conjunction with tooth whitening (bleaching). This is especially popular after braces and also with wedding parties to improve their teeth before the big day.
  • We usually recommend that you bleach your teeth first as it helps to see the final colour of your teeth before we add the bonding.
  • We can then use a perfectly matched colour of composite to improve the tooth’s appearance
