A lot of you may not be conscious that this is a problem a dental professional can help to solve. As you the above images illustrate, you can see that holes and snacks have been filled out, creating a significant distinction to the patients’ smile, I’m sure you’d concur with the fact.


Dental composite bonding was applied to make the teeth look more attractive and improve their appearance.

Composite bonding is the procedure employed, using the material called – yes you guessed it – ‘composite’; The same material used for long durable white fillings instead of silver or metal fillings in teeth. It’s similar to that which keeps orthodontic supports to teeth which must hold up against recurrent forces and daily pressures the oral cavity goes through and therefore is not only natural looking natural but also durable and reliable.

Cosmetic bonding by use of the dental composite bonding method makes the teeth look more attractive and improves their appearance. It works like dental veneers in the process of cosmetic dental care, only that the materials used to make it are different.

Main ingredients of this dental composite are finely ground glass particles and a filler plastic resin which acts as the bonding agent. Composite white fillings can restore the natural looks of teeth from their decayed, broken or discoloured state. This type of bonding, also known as the white filling.

This compound can be bound to any enamel of a tooth with any shade or colour to achieve teeth straightening. So there’s not the need to fret that it won’t blend in with other teeth. It’s easily polished so that you cannot feel or see a join between the tooth and the composite filling material. It doesn’t cause harm, and replacement, removal, or alterations are safe and efficient.

Most importantly, it can be done in one bonding procedure appointment and does not require any drilling (like a veneer or crown would) or even injections. It’s minimally invasive and pain-free. And for juicier news, it comes not with a hefty price tag!

Besides closing gaps between gum or teeth and even repairing chipped teeth, the composite is used to lengthen teeth. Also, it can work hand in hand with tooth whitening. The compound is suitable for dental bonding in areas where there are small cavities, like on the front, and preferably in areas where there’s little to medium pressure applied during chewing.

Other situations, though, such as large cavities on teeth zones that handle a lot of chewing, could call for sturdier filling processes such as metal filling or tooth replacement. In dental care, these procedures are professionally determined while undertaking dental surgery, dental implant or teeth whitening.

Working on all teeth at once can cause problems for a cosmetic dentist. For instance, when working to place dental bridges, and close the gap from a missing tooth. In dental clinics, a rubber dam is used to isolate the affected tooth area from the rest of the mouth for more focused treatment.


This filler compound requires to be used on clean and dry teeth, and aims at achieving the desired shape and colour, while keeping the natural tooth structure intact through the bonding procedure, to avoid any dental emergency that may arise due to unchecked conditions.

Over the past years, methods of filling teeth have evolved. Composites are the modern way of giving you back that natural looking smile. These smile makeovers get much sought in this society where by everyone treasures a smile with pearly whites. The white fillings blend in perfectly with tooth enamel.

An Inman aligner realigns crooked front teeth to their original vertical alignment. This method is painless and can happen in a short while of 6 weeks to 6 months. The one to six-month month smiles were introduced and helped many patients requiring teeth straightening.

This material receives favour from practitioners of cosmetic dentistry in the attempt to restore people’s natural teeth as a perfect choice for filling the cavity in a visible area of your smile, like on the front teeth or the gum line that may have had gum disease problems.
