Composite Bonding Melbourne – Popular & Cheaper Alternative to Porcelain Veneers Are you looking for the fastest, most pain-free methods and most affordable Cosmetic Dentistry procedure to Improve your Smile?
Composite bonding is one of the fastest and most pain-free methods for correcting minor dental issues such as chips, cracks, and stains, strengthening teeth while creating beautiful aesthetic results and a brilliant smile. The treatment is extremely conservative of natural tooth structure, and it can even be used to reshape teeth that are misaligned or overly small.
Each Composite bonding treatment performed at our Melbourne office is usually finished in less than an hour with immediately visible results, although depending on the extent and severity of your dental issues more than one treatment may be required to restore your smile and if you are looking to have several teeth done at once, this may take few to several hours.
Composite bonding treatment is a splendid alternative to more extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures such as those required for the installation of porcelain veneers or dental crowns and bridges, allowing us to create striking results more affordably. Furthermore, many insurance carriers cover dental bonding, especially when a tooth requires structural repair.
How Can we Help to Improve Your Smile Today?
Have a chipped, broken, or stained tooth you are not happy with? Composite bonding can make it look like new again and greatly improve your smiles without causing too much damage to your budget.
At t your initial visit to our office, Dr. Castro will assess the cosmetic problems you are not happy with such as chips, fractures, discoloration, or wear and tear on your teeth. She will walk you through various treatment options and determine whether cosmetic dental bonding is appropriate for you. She will sit down and discuss your options based on the extent of corrections needed, your desired outcome, and what treatments are available to correct what you are unhappy with.
As everyone is not an ideal candidate for Composite bonding, we will want you to have a consultation with an expert cosmetic dentist so that you can determine if it is the right choice for you. Here at our office , we provide Composite bonding to a lot of our patients as an affordable option to help them with their smile.

Composite bonding is a
cosmetic dentistry procedure in which tooth-coloured composite material is applied to a tooth, sculpted into shape, hardened, and polished. It’s called bonding because of the material bonds to the tooth. Composite bonding is ideal for small cosmetic dentistry work, such as fixing a broken or chipped tooth or closing small gaps between teeth. Composite bonding is also used as a tooth-coloured filling for small cavities because it’s more cosmetically appealing than silver fillings.
Composite bonding is a technique similar to veneers. Instead of using a porcelain facing, a tooth-coloured filling material (composite resin) is chemically and mechanically bonded to the tooth giving the appearance of straight teeth.
– Close spaces between your teeth
– Lengthen small or misshapen teeth – Whiten stained or darkened teeth – A single tooth can be shaped and coloured, or your entire smile can be changed!
When teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, bonding can protect them from damage and restore their original look. Bonding your teeth with resin is a one-appointment procedure:
Preparation. Little advance preparation is needed for Composite bonding. Anaesthesia is often not necessary unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth, the tooth needs to be drilled to change its shape, or the chip is near the nerve. We will use a shade guide to select a composite resin colour that will closely match the colour of your tooth.
The bonding process. We will roughen the surface of the tooth and apply a conditioning liquid. These procedures help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-coloured, putty-like resin is applied, moulded, and smoothed to the desired shape. The material is hardened with a bright (usually blue) light or laser. After the material hardens, your dentist will further trim and shape it, then polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.
Once in place, bonded restorations are very strong. Composite bonding can greatly improve the appearance of your teeth, resulting in a more beautiful, natural-looking smile!
However, because of some of the limitations of Composite bonding, some dentists view it as best suited for small cosmetic changes, for short-term correction of cosmetic problems, and for correcting teeth in areas of very low bite pressure (front teeth, for example). Talk to us about the best cosmetic approach for you.
Composite bonding is less expensive than Dental Porcelain veneers, but it also has drawbacks.
ADVANTAGES Cost. The average cost of Composite bonding ranges from $300 to $600 per tooth. But many dental insurance plans cover most of the cost of bonding, particularly when it is done for structural reasons or to fill a cavity. Speed. Composite bonding typically requires only one office visit. The entire process can be accomplished in 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. Ease. Anaesthesia is usually not necessary unless bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth. Compared to veneers and crowns, Composite bonding also requires the least amount of enamel removal. DISADVANTAGES
Composite bonding material can become stained. Unlike crowns and porcelain veneers, Composite bonding has a tendency to become discoloured over time. Coffee, tea, red wine, and cigarette smoke can stain the material used in dental bonding, making it stand out from the rest of your teeth. To minimize staining, you’ll need to avoid these substances for 24 to 48 hours after bonding is first performed. If you’re a smoker, you’ll want to choose a different cosmetic dentistry treatment. Because bonding material is porous, it will yellow from exposure to cigarette smoke. Less durable. Additionally, the material used in Composite bonding isn’t as strong and long-lasting as porcelain veneers and crowns. It can easily chip. With proper care though, Composite bonding can last three to seven years.
If you have a minor cosmetic dentistry issue — such as a cracked or discolored tooth, a gap between your teeth, or silver fillings that show when you smile — dental bonding may help.
Composite bonding is also used in cosmetic dentistry to reshape or recontour teeth. In contrast to veneers and bleaching, however, Composite bonding can’t be used to whiten your entire smile. Composite bonding can also be appropriate as “white fillings” for small cavities in teeth that are not exposed to excessive force when chewing, but the material used in dental bonding may not be durable enough for large cavities.
Is Composite bonding permanent? How Long Does Composite bonding Last?
Your bonding’s lifespan will depend largely on maintaining your oral health and avoiding damaging the bonded teeth. Composite bonding materials typically last between three and 10 years. After this timeframe, your dental professional will need to take steps to either replace or maintain the affected areas.
You don’t need to take special steps to maintain your bonded teeth, but you should pay special attention to your oral health and dental hygiene to ensure their longevity.
Because Composite bonding is more susceptible to staining and chipping than other forms of cosmetic dentistry, special care is required to keep your bonded teeth looking natural. Here are some tips to keep your Composite bonding in tip-top shape:
Cut down on coffee, tea, and red wine. If you’re a smoker, this is a good reason to quit — not to mention that smoking also increases your risk of gum disease and oral cancer. Since Composite bonding can chip easily, avoid biting your nails or chewing on hard objects, such as ice, pencils, and raw carrots. Call us if you notice sharp edges or if your teeth feel strange when you bite down. If necessary, dental bonding can be repaired or touched up.
Because Composite bonding does take some artistic skill for optimal cosmetic results, it’s important to choose a dentist experienced with the procedure. Don’t hesitate to ask to see before and after photos of your dentist’s previous Composite bonding patients.
Composite bonding isn’t appropriate in every situation, but it can be a quick and relatively inexpensive way to improve your smile. And feeling good about the appearance of your teeth can help you maintain good dental health.
