Home » Direct Composite Resin
Direct composite resin bonding can be a fast, minimally invasive, and inexpensive option for the beautiful smile you’re looking for.
Knowing what makes you a qualified candidate can help you determine if composite bonding is the right treatment for you. Read on for more information.

Composite bonding is a technique in which a dental material – in this case, composite resin – is shaped and moulded on your teeth to give the appearance of a straighter, whiter smile. It can be used as a cosmetic solution to chipped, gapped, and stained teeth and fillings. Unlike porcelain veneer placement, which can take more than two dental visits, composite resin bonding can be completed in one appointment.

Advantages of Direct Composite Resin

Composite resins offer multiple advantages over conventional silver amalgam fillings:

  • They are better refined than gold and amalgam – producing a more precise replication of a natural tooth’s function.
  • They are not made of metal – a blend can be created to match the natural colour of the patient’s teeth.
  • The bond between the tooth and composite resin supports the remaining tooth structure, helping to prevent breakage and relieving temperature sensitivity.
  • Medium to small dental composite resins can last more than ten years.
  • More of the original tooth is saved.

What Happens During Your Visit

Composite bonding is a non-invasive and effective technique that has developed for more than five decades and has been widely available for over 30 years. The fillings and processes nowadays are very efficient, making it easier for both you and your dentist.

The treatment often starts with the removal of some surface enamel, allowing the dentist to shape the composite resin to your tooth, followed by the application of the bonding agent.

Then, your dentist will add the composite resin, harden it with a special light, and finish by polishing your teeth. Because the procedure requires a high level of technique to create a natural-looking mould and shape, it’s best to go to a dentist who has experience and skill in this area.

Oral Care Tips for Direct Composite Restorations

Avoid stain-inducing beverages – coffee, tea, red wine, and other substances can stain the resin used in bonding.

Practice good oral hygiene – to keep your newly bonded tooth beautiful, brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily. Don’t forget to rinse off with a fluoride mouthwash.
