COMPOSITE BONDING
SERVICES

ONE OF THE SIMPLEST
DENTAL COSMETIC PROCEDURES

IMPROVE THE APPEARANCE
OF YOUR TEETH

Composite bonding aims to correct many minor defects and is not only low cost but one of the simplest of dental cosmetic procedures. It refers to the procedure and the substance and can also be known as tooth bonding.

Tooth bonding is the application of a tooth-coloured resin material using adhesives and a high intensity curing light. The procedure gets its name because materials are bonded to the tooth.

At Collins Precision Dental, we offer the highest quality tooth bonding in Melbourne Central Business District – find a service that’s right for you.

WHAT IS COMPOSITE BONDING?

Bonding is typically used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discoloured or chipped tooth. It is also used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or colour of teeth.

Often, bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede.

Here are a few common corrections from tooth bonding Melbourne:

• Small gaps between front teeth
• Slight crookedness
• Slight misalignment
• Small chips or surface cracks
• Discolouration that will not respond to tooth whitening

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT PROCEDURE FOR COMPOSITE BONDING?

TREATMENT PROCEDURE INCLUDES

Procedure – On the day of your procedure, your cosmetic dentist will prepare your tooth or teeth by roughening and shaping the surface- this is not always required – perhaps use term priming. This process is not painful and does not use anaesthesia. From here, a bonding agent will be applied to ensure the composite sticks strongly to the tooth or teeth. The composite material will be applied and shaped. Several layers of the material may be required. A high intensity light may be used to harden the material. The dentist will smooth and polish your tooth.

Preparation – You will discuss your treatment goals with your Collins Precision Dental professional during your initial consultation. Our team will assess what you need and explain your options, the procedure and address any possible risks. From here, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums and may take photos. You may also receive instructions on how to prepare for your treatment.
