Fix Teeth gaps With Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a great way to fix gaps in teeth, both in isolated areas as well as across multiple teeth. It’s all done in the same simple procedure, and as one of the most budget friendly and time efficient dental procedures available, it’s hugely popular across the world as a treatment option.

Composite bonding fixes gaps in teeth by a dental professional carefully adding a composite resin to the tooth or teeth creating the gap. The gap could be due to varying sizes in teeth, it could be alignment, it could be chips, and realistically, it can be a huge number of other causes too. 

The composite resin is added to the smaller teeth, building them up to fill the gaps in question, colour matching perfectly to look seamlessly out of place with the rest of your smile.

This resin is then hardened using a special UV light, bonding to the teeth to which it was applied and comfortably and precisely filling in the gaps as necessary. This could be done in a single space as well as on multiple teeth at the same time, all with the same incredible results.

Benefits of Composite Bonding for Fixing Teeth Gaps

Composite bonding is of course not the only way to fix gaps in teeth. There are other means of alignment like Invisalign or even orthodontic braces that can help with that, but for issues in more isolated areas or where braces aren’t ideal, composite bonding is a hugely advantageous treatment option that comes with a huge range of benefits.

Multipurpose in Nature

Composite bonding is a very multipurpose approach to fixing gaps in teeth. It has a wide range of applications and use cases, from chips and cracks to different sizes and shapes of teeth. Whatever the need, it is a universal approach and the same simple yet effective method to fix gaps.

On top of being used for several different causes of gaps in teeth, it is also interesting to note that composite bonding to fill these gaps is also an effective method for improving oral hygiene in many cases. While it is of course very dependent on your oral hygiene routines, composite bonding reducing gaps means that there is less area of exposed tooth and often the teeth are easier to keep clean for the most part.

High Durability

Composite bonding is very durable. It lasts for around 5-7 years with the potential to last longer too, with the gaps in your teeth remaining filled throughout this time. Maintenance is of course important, and the composite bonding does need to be looked after correctly with regular brushing, flossing, mouth washing and avoiding items that stain teeth where possible.

As a whole, composite bonding should be just as durable as any other possible treatment. What is also great about composite bonding to fill gaps is that it can be repaired where needed, and even replaced with ease, unlike some other treatment options which may require a longer process to restore.

Non Invasive Procedure

Because of how simple the process of composite bonding is, especially when filling in gaps, composite bonding is one of the least invasive procedures available. The composite resin is bonded to the teeth in question using a UV light, with the tooth needing no prep other than getting the tooth ready to be bonded.

The process is completely reversible, pain free and should take less than an hour to complete with just one appointment. This means that your gaps will be filled rapidly and you can carry on with your day to day business with an instantly revitalised smile.

Ultimately, composite bonding is a fantastic option to reduce the gaps in your teeth with ease. It’s extremely cost effective, quick and easy to have done, and effective above all else for the job at hand.
