This can then be polished so it blends in seamlessly onto your teeth and is so versatile that it can be used from anything from simple repairs of broken teeth to more comprehensive rehabilitations and veneers.
It is a material that can be easily applied repaired and needs maintenance throughout the life of the tooth it is attached to.
Composite bonding refers to the process in which composite is applied and sculpted onto the teeth to achieve the desired goals.

Composite needs to be maintained, repaired and polished more frequently than other alternatives such as porcelain and Zirconia.
It may chip, break, wear and discolour over time and require repairs, re-polishing or resurfacing every so often. These repairs are however fairly easy and cost effective to do.
The lustre and aesthetics of composite are excellent but may not be able to reach the levels of the highest quality porcelain.
Yes it certainly can and we very commonly use both to help enhance a persons smile. The whitening process would always take place first to help us achieve a brighter, whiter smile. We would then wait for approximately 2 weeks post whitening to allow the teeth to stabilised before carrying out the composite to change the shape, size, length of the teeth to complete the rehabilitation of your smile.
We offer a haven of tranquillity, thoughtfully designed to stimulate the senses and complemented by state-of-the-art technology that makes your experience calm, relaxing and ultimately re-energising.
