Composite bonding is perhaps the most significant advancement in dentistry of the last 50 years.
More than any other procedure, this is the one technique that enables more of the accomplishments of modern dentistry than any other.
|Composite bonding can solve many problems:
While dentists have come to depend on bonded composite for so many uses, we may tend to take it for granted as routine dentistry.
But if you’ve ever broken a front tooth and had that cosmetic disaster transformed into a non-event by a dentist who knew how, in just a few minutes, to make the repair as natural looking and invisible as if the tooth had never broken, then you know the wonder of bonded composite.
Advantages of Composite bonding:
- It can be bonded to a tooth and stay for many years.
- It can be matched to your tooth color so that when a tooth is repaired with composite, the repair is invisible, and often improves the appearance of the tooth if there was a prior defect.
- Composite can be added to existing tooth stucture when a tooth is broken or chipped, so it is a minimally invasive procedure not requiring a lot of tooth structure to be removed.
- It is less costly than a porcelain restoration to do the same job, and can be completed in one visit whereas many porcelain or metal restorations require a second visit.
- If the composite chips, repair is relatively easy
Disadvantages of Composite:
- While composite is very strong it is not as strong or as durable as porcelain or metal restoration, so there are some limitations as to where it should be used.
- Composite restorations on average do not last as long as porcelain.
- There is more tendency over time for staining to occur with composite compared with porcelain.
Bonded composite is the ideal choice if you want to correct a single defect in your smile such as a chip or a gap between teeth. For more extensive work, it may be an option to consider.
