Composite Bonding Procedure

STEP 1:Preparing The Teeth

Cleaning and preparing the tooth surface is the first step required. We make sure to maintain the highest standard of hygiene. Our dentist will first get the surface of the tooth ready. The tooth is cleaned thoroughly and prepared with a gel which chemically roughens the surfaces. This gel roughens the surface to a microscopic level and allows for the composite to bond well to your tooth. An adhesive bond is then applied to the tooth surface. At SDS we use a glue based on evidence based research to ensure the best outcomes.

STEP 2: Using Composite

Composite (which behaves similar to moulding putty) is then applied onto the tooth surface. With a series of special instruments and brushes, we sculpt and mould the composite to the desired shape, size and curves for your tooth. These are generally applied in layers to recreate the natural shades. A special light is used to harden the composite. Once we have applied all the composite, we go through a series of polishing instruments to enhance the shape and ensure a high lustre polish for the final result.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately you can only whiten natural tooth structures. You can not whiten white filling materials. So it is important we support you to choose the right shade for you from the start.

Should you find the natural tooth colour starts to discolour but your existing composite bonding remains the shade you desire, then you can do a course of whitening to match the tooth colour close to the existing composite. Otherwise you may need to consider to replace the composite bonding with a brighter colour.
We typically do a smile design and see how this might look via a mock up in your mouth. You can see a draft of how the composite bonding may turn out. We can of course fine tune and adjust some of the shapes, size and contour.
Once this is verified with you, we can use a series of templates to apply the composite to this shape.
