What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is a dental procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin material is applied to the surface of a tooth, sculpted into shape, hardened, and polished to improve the appearance of the tooth. It is also called tooth bonding or dental bonding. The resin material used in composite bonding is a mixture of glass or quartz filler particles and a resin medium that is used to hold the filler particles together. Composite bonding in Marbella is often used to repair chips or cracks in teeth, to close gaps between teeth, or to change the shape or color of teeth. It can be an effective and less expensive alternative to porcelain veneers or crowns. The procedure is typically quick and can be performed in one visit to at R&H DENTAL in Marbella.

Composite Bonding Vs. Porcelain Veneers

Composite bonding and porcelain veneers are both dental procedures that can be used to improve the appearance of teeth, but they have some differences.

Composite bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the surface of a tooth, sculpted into shape, hardened, and polished to improve the appearance of the tooth. It can be used to repair chips or cracks in teeth, to close gaps between teeth, or to change the shape or color of teeth. Composite bonding is typically less expensive than porcelain veneers and can be performed in one visit to the dentist's office. However, the resin material used in composite bonding is not as durable as porcelain and may not last as long. It is also more prone to staining and may require touch-ups or replacement over time.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. They are used to improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, worn, discolored, or misaligned. Porcelain veneers are more durable and resistant to staining than composite bonding, but they are also more expensive. The procedure for placing porcelain veneers typically requires two visits to the dentist's office, with the first visit being used to prepare the tooth and take impressions for the veneers, and the second visit being used to place the veneers.

Which procedure is better for you will depend on your specific needs and budget. Your dentist at R&H DENTAL will be able to advise you on the best option for you based on the condition of your teeth and your desired results.
