Composite Bonding – also called resin bonding or tooth coloured bonding. It is a minimally invasive dental procedure to restore tooth to its original appearance and aesthetically or cosmetically enhance its appearance.

How long does composite bonding last?

The resin material may last up to 10 years. It is weaker than enamel but same as our natural tooth it can be chipped off, stained, and broke down. If these happens you just need to go back to the dentist to do touch up and polishing.


  • Edge bonding – as the name implies, it is a composite bonding restoration on the incisal edge of the tooth. Either the tooth was chipped off or broken due to accident, worn out because of teeth grinding (Bruxism) or  the patient wants to lengthen the tooth/teeth cosmetically to even out the edges to have a better smile line.
  • Composite veneers – is a cosmetic composite bonding procedure directly applied to the full surface of the tooth or teeth. No need to reduce the tooth size or do tooth preparation or drilling. No damage to natural tooth. It’s a popular and affordable choice to even out the teeth surfaces without undergoing orthodontic braces.
  • Porcelain veneers – a thin wafer type restoration made of ceramic material done in the laboratory. The dentist will then bond the Porcelain to the pre shape tooth surface using dental adhesive. The laminated Porcelain mimic the enamel surface of the tooth.

Do I need Invisalign before I do composite bonding?

It all depends on your case and preference. Ideally, we do Invisalign first and do composite bonding of the worn-out teeth edges after.

In some patients we do composite bonding first until they have sufficient funds to do Invisalign or braces in the future particularly if the teeth are chipped or worn down.
