Cosmetic Bonding Cairns

Treat a range of aesthetic dental issues with this rapid and aesthetic treatment

Composite bonding is a fast and effective cosmetic treatment which can be used to fix a range of issues. It involves a minimal amount of tooth reduction and in some cases none at all. It is also a particularly good option if you have suffered a dental emergency, like a chip or crack, as we can work to fix it immediately. If you are in need of an emergency appointment, contact us immediately.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is one of the simplest and least invasive cosmetic dental procedures. Bonding involves the application of a tooth-coloured resin to the outside of the tooth to fix the shape and colour.  Unlike porcelain veneers, composite bonding requires far less tooth preparation and can often be completed in one visit. The process can usually be completed within one visit and while everyone is different, patients do normally not experience any discomfort while undergoing this procedure. Although it is fast and painless, composite bonding isn’t as suitable as porcelain veneers as a long-term option, but it is much more economical and is a great option when dealing with dental emergencies.

What can composite bonding fix?

Composite bonding is a good option for treating a range of different cosmetic issues, some of which include:

  • Chips and cracks in teeth
  • Gaps in between teeth
  • Improving discoloured or stained teeth
  • Reshaping teeth
  • Correcting the length or size of teeth
  • Whitening teeth
  • Correcting crooked or crowded teeth

If you have suffered a trauma to your teeth and are in need of a rapid and economical option for fixing it, contact us immediately and we will be able to find a solution.

How long does composite bonding last?

The lifespan of your composite bonding is dependent on a number of factors:
The experience, expertise and artistic ability of the dentist. Dr Gibbins has been bonding in practice since 1972, the time when the bonding era really commenced and has a great eye for detail, colour and symmetry.

  • The quality of the composite resin
  • The technique by which it was applied
  • How you care for your teeth after the composite bonding has been applied

Bonding made from high-quality materials usually has a 10-15 year lifespan, and in some cases even longer. Bonding can easily be re-done when needed. It is important to note that there are a few limitations with composite bonding. It is recommended that you avoid biting into hard objects, like ice cubes, and although they are designed to be stain resistant, the same foods that discolour your natural teeth can affect the colour of your composite bonding. The best way to treat this is to maintain your six-monthly cleans at your dentist.

What are dental bonding alternatives?

Dental bonding is a process by which a composite resin is shaped to fit gaps between teeth or on top of them so that teeth have improved colour, or to close gaps. Another option is veneers, which are put in place to change the colours and even the shape of teeth. You can also get teeth whitening if your concern is discoloured or yellow teeth.

Is dental bonding removal bad for teeth?

Dental bonding is a reversible procedure, the composite resin can be removed without doing any harm to your teeth. Because there is no enamel removal when you get them to put in place, the process of removing them is easier and quicker, so if you want to switch to a different treatment like veneers, you can easily do that.
