Dental Bonding Melbourne
From the use of antibiotics to smoking, coffee and tea consumption to the affects of time and wear and tear, teeth may become discoloured and stained. The staining of teeth can impact your confidence and social interactions.
Dental or composite bonding is a commonly used conservative approach in covering stains and rebuilding teeth that have been fractured, stained or sustained damage.
At ProSmiles our experts offer cosmetic contouring on teeth with dental bonding Melbourne that can enhance the appearance of crooked teeth and may be used to close spaces between teeth. Composite bonding is also used in the treatment of temporary bite changes with less invasive techniques that would normally compromise the integrity of the natural tooth.
What is Composite Dental Bonding?
Improve and enhance your smile with dental bonding! A process of applying a matched resin to your teeth, composite bonding is then hardened using an intense light. This ensures the resin adheres to the dentin and enamel of the tooth, limiting the amount of tooth structure that needs to be removed.
Dental bonding is an alternative to dental crowns and veneers, whilst highly affordable and a quick resolution, bonding is susceptible to staining. The process may need to be repeated after a 5-8-year period. Whilst not an equivalent to crowns, the immediate results and transformation is very rewarding for your patients.
What is Composite veneers?
Composite veneers are thin shells that fit over the front of your original teeth to improve the overall appearance of your smile. Composite veneers are made from resin which is customised to match the distinct colour of your natural teeth so that they’re an easy fit for your smile.
Composite veneers are perfect for covering imperfections such as crooked, misshapen, chipped, stained or discoloured teeth. Hence, for aesthetic purposes, composite veneers are a smart choice.
Indications Of Composite Dental Bonding
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Improve the appearance of discoloured teeth due to tea, coffee and antibiotics
- Close the diastema (the gap between the front teeth)
- Elongate teeth
- Alter the shape of teeth
- As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
- Protect the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede
Fractured and cracked teeth can be restored using this dental technique. Transforming badly decayed teeth and lengthening and reshaping teeth, depending on your requirements, composite bonding offers an affordable alternative to dental crowns and veneers.

Types Of Composite Veneers In Melbourne?
There are two types of composite veneers that you can choose from – each made with the same material but differing in the application process.
Direct Composite Veneers
Made from a resin material, direct composite veneers are applied to your teeth in one appointment. Therefore, making them a quick, easy option for transforming the look of your teeth. Direct composite veneers are known to be minimally invasive, and at ProSmiles, we can prepare your teeth for application efficiently and without any extra procedures. When you want composite veneers without any of the hassle, choose direct composite veneers from our specialists at ProSmiles. Contact us today to find out more about direct composite veneers.
Indirect Composite Veneers
The application process for indirect composite veneers is different. Although your teeth are prepared in the same way as when getting direct composite veneers, the veneers are custom-made outside of the patient’s mouth. These veneers are created in our dentist’s office and take longer to form than traditional direct composite veneers. Our dentists are ProSmiles will ensure that you receive a temporary set of veneers until your indirect veneers are made. Once you arrive at your next appointment, your indirect veneers will be applied to your teeth using a layer of adhesive and you’ll finally have a new, perfect smile that you can start showing off to the world.
Due to the increased durability of indirect veneers, these composite veneers cost per tooth tends to be higher. To find out more about composite veneers cost in Melbourne and the differences between direct and indirect veneers, contact our team today.
Maintaining Your Composite Veneers
Ensuring that your composite veneers last as long as possible can be achieved through standard maintenance and appropriate dental care routines. On average, composite veneers last 5-7 years if maintained properly, and can even exceed this limit if the appropriate measures are taken.
However, after this, you will usually need a replacement set of veneers to maintain an aesthetically pleasing look for your teeth.
You can take care of your composite veneers through regular, yet simple dental care routines such as brushing twice a day, using a non-abrasive toothpaste and resisting to chew on ice or any other overly hard foods or objects.
To keep your composite veneers clean and stain-free, you may also choose to steer clear of drinks like coffee or wine, which may discolour your veneers over time.
When you choose ProSmiles for your new composite veneers, we’ll outline all the procedure guidelines in detail so that you know what to expect both composite veneers before and after the treatment.
