(Advantages, Disadvantages, Cost)

Composite bonding is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments today. If you want to have your teeth fixed and have a more beautiful smile, and you want this treatment to be finished in a short time, composite bonding is for you. The biggest benefit of this treatment is that it is completed in 1 day. It can also be called teeth bonding.

What Is Teeth Bonding?


Composite bonding is the most effortless and affordable of cosmetic dentistry treatments. It is aimed to make the smile look beautiful with aesthetic dental composite materials. Cosmetic composite material is applied to the front surface of your teeth.

If you are not satisfied with the color of your teeth, teeth whitening treatment is applied before the composite bonding. And the composite material will match to the shade of your white teeth. In addition, the results are comparable to porcelain veneers, the biggest difference being that teeth bonding is more affordable.

How Long The Teeth Bonding Last?

Teeth bonding usually lasts between 1 and 3 years. This is directly related to the patient’s oral care and personal habits.Habits such as clenching teeth, biting nails, drinking too much tea and coffee and smoking reduce the life of teeth bonding. Proper oral care and regular dental check-ups also extend the life of teeth bondings.

  • Composite materials used in teeth bonding treatment can become discolored over time. Consuming coloring drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine accelerates this.
  • After the teeth bonding treatment, it is necessary to see the patient every 6 months and renew the polish.
  • Composite materials used in teeth bonding need to be renewed every 1-3 years.

What Is The Process Of Composite Teeth Bonding?

Teeth bonding application is completed in approximately 2 to 3 hours. A single session will be sufficient to perform the bonding application. To which teeth will be bonded, those teeth are first made ready for application. Your dentist will examine your mouth and teeth and after treating minor problems, the application is started.

First of all, conditioning liquid is applied to the teeth to be bonded to roughen the surface. Thanks to this liquid, the materials to be used are adhered to the teeth. Then the tooth colored composite materials are bonded to the tooth. Before the composite materials harden, the necessary processes are carried out to bring them into the desired shape. After the shaping process is completed, laser or bright lights are used to harden the composite material. After the hardening materials completely settle on the tooth surface, specialist dentists perform the procedures for shaping the teeth. Finally, polishing processes are performed to make the tooth surface look better and match the natural tooth color. You will not feel any pain during these procedures.

After the bonding application, the life of your teeth varies between 3 and 5 years. However, in order to prolong this period, you need to give due importance to your oral and dental hygiene and annual routine controls.
