Composite Bonding/Artistry

Enjoy the confidence to show off your smile

Would you like to change the colour or shape of your teeth, without damaging them?

Composite artistry, also know as composite tooth bonding, is an advanced technique that allows you to have the smile you have always wanted without damaging your teeth. This versatile material can be applied directly to the tooth to replace a broken edge, to lighten teeth, to improve tooth proportions and form, or to redesign your entire smile.

In short, it’s a minimally invasive mini smile makeover and treatment could change your smile in a single visit, offering significant financial savings over conventional porcelain laminate veneers.

Composite bonding/artistry is growing in popularity and has many applications in dentistry.

Useful facts:

  • Composite bonding/artistry can be used to hide the gaps between your teeth.
  • The treatment can cover tooth chips and cracks.
  • It’s a great alternative to silver amalgam fillings.
  • This strong, versatile material can be used to form practically any shape, and made to match the colour of your teeth.

Here are a few of the ways composite bonding/artistry can help restore your smile to its former glory.

Cracked teeth

We can use the bonding material to help prevent a crack from extending.  This amazing material can also help minimise the appearance of cracks, especially miniscule cracks that may be extensive and cause your smile to become discoloured.

Chipped teeth

Composite tooth bonding/artistry is an excellent treatment choice for repairing chipped teeth.  Using the material our skilled dentists can restore the tooth, prevent further damage, and create an even look, often restoring your confidence in a single visit.

Close gaps in teeth

Using the composite resin we can build out the teeth on either side of the gap to effectively close the gap. However, if the gap is very wide or if you have multiple gaps in your smile we may recommend Invisalign treatment or dental veneers.

Protect Exposed Tooth Roots. 

Yes, composite resin can even help conceal exposed tooth roots and prevent painful sensitivity.

This technique requires skill and artistry and is an area of special interest at The Essex Smile Centre in Rayleigh.  Speak to us today to find out more and book an initial assessment.  We would be delighted to help.
