Your composite bonding treatment with Dr Finkelstein
Composite bonding is a minimally invasive treatment usually performed over 2 appointments.
Dr Finkelstein will assess the health of your teeth and the determine the suitability of composite bonding over other treatments. We then work with you to determine the shade of material that will match with your current set of teeth to ensure it will look great but also natural and unique to you.
Applying the resin
When your tooth or set of teeth are ready the resin will be applied. This is molded and smoothened to the proper shape. An ultraviolet light is exposed to the resin to harden it. Once hardened we will then shape, polish and trim the new look teeth to give your smile a natural polished look.

It is recommended that you brush and floss your teeth as usual. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene routines as well as regular dental hygiene appointments to maintain your smile.
What to avoid
Your average diet should not cause any problems after composite bonding has been applied. However, like natural teeth, over time they can become stained from typical culprits like red wine, coffee, and cigarettes/tobacco. Care should be taken with hard objects like nuts and ice along with watching habits like chewing fingernails and pens.
If you know that you grind your teeth or clench them in your sleep, please let us know as we may advise you to wear a guard at night to reduce the pressure placed upon your teeth.
