What is composite resin bonding?
Composite resin bonding is a specialized material used by dentists in a variety of ways. This material, which mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel, is like a clay-like material that the dentist can mold onto a tooth, harden with a special light, and polish to have the same sheen as natural tooth enamel. The results look just like the natural tooth, ensuring that the repair is indistinguishable.
How is composite resin bonding used?
- Repair of tooth decay – areas of decay, also known as cavities, require a dentist to use a filler in the area to prevent the decay from going deeper and to keep bacteria from entering into the tooth and causing an infection. Many patients prefer composite resin fillings as they are natural looking and do not give off the appearance of having a tooth filled.
- Breakage of a tooth – patients who have chips or cracks on their teeth may use composite resin bonding to repair the tooth and bring the tooth back to its original shape and size. This can also be done with other cosmetic restorations such as porcelain veneers.
- Address gaps between teeth – a small portion of composite resin bonding can also be placed in between teeth where a gap is present. This can eliminate the need for time-consuming orthodontics to permanently repair these spaces.
