Bonded composite fillings (No-drill technique) are a reliable, aesthetic, and economical way of managing gaps and open spaces in the mouth.
The above patient wanted a more even smile, we added a small amount of composite resin material to the canines to harmonize the aesthetics of the smile as well as some conservative tooth whitening.
Modern composites are strong, durable, and hard wearing. They allow the patient to get a great looking smile without touching tooth structure unlike other options like porcelain veneers and crowns.
• How long will these bondings last?
You can expect a tooth coloured filling to last an average of 5-7 years. This is dependant on diet and maintenance. If and when fillings are lost or break, they are easily repaired.
• Are my teeth damaged by this procedure?
One of the biggest advantages of this technique is that it is a no-drill technique, the teeth are left completely undamaged. This procedure is fully reversible.
• How much does this cost?
You can expect to pay around 100 euro per tooth bonded. The dentist will be able to give you an exact quote, it can be less or more depending on material needed.
