Composite Bonding

Composite is a white filling material bonded onto the teeth to hide discolourations or badly positioned teeth, and to repair small chips or fractures. Usually there’s no need to prepare the teeth underneath, so the composite can be removed if necessary without too much damage. The teeth may look a bit bulkier, however, there is no preparation.

A composite may need one or several appointments to be applied, depending on the condition of the underlying tooth, and may not require an anaesthetic.

The cost of composites is moderate and the results are good; they generally last two to five years before polishing, buffing or redoing is needed.
