Composite tooth bonding is a technique that can change your smile. Composite bonding is a simple solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color or reshaping of your teeth as an immediate orthodontic treatment.
Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed. However, this will subside after your tooth acclimates to the new filling. But in some cases, sensitivity will be treated by a slight bite adjustment in a separate appointment while the tooth is not numb. You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
