Direct composite bonding, called also direct composite veneers, is a method of using tooth-coloured composites to fill cavities, repair chipped tooth fragments or cracks, build-up worn-down edges and close gaps between the teeth. This treatment option in the category of “gentle aesthetic dentistry”, also called lite aesthetic dentistry, has the top priority of preservation your natural teeth, because firm teeth are an important factor for physical and mental well-being.

Bonding is a procedure of placing precisely restorative material in or on the teeth where needed, usually completed in one dental visit, modelled free-handed by the doctor. More complicated or extensive treatments may require additional visits.


A comprehensive examination and evaluation of your teeth and gums prior treatment will determine, whether you are a candidate to resolve with bonding your dental problems. This includes, but is not limited to, taking and reviewing X-rays of your teeth to fully evaluate candidacy.


For minimal invasive smile makeovers, composite can be applied directly and sculpted to the tooth surface and considered as “long-lasting” solution.

It is important to maintain proper oral hygiene, as well as avoid bad habits, such as e.g., biting your fingernails, chewing on pens, ice or other hard objects that could damage your restorations. If you grind (bruxism) or clench your teeth (clenching) during sleep, we recommend you to wear a night guard (Michigan splint).


Composite bonding is an ideal and less expensive solution than dental crowns or veneers for minor situations such as:

  • Chipped, fractured teeth

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Stains and / or discoloration

  • Slight crooked teeth

Bonding as a «cheap» solution, but it has consequences:

  • Color change after a short time

  • No smoking, no red wine, etc.

  • Avoid bad habits such as biting your fingernails, chewing pencils, hard frozen ice or other hard objects as direct bonding is prone to chipping


LASER application in bonding restorations:

  • Roughening of the enamel surface as a preliminary stage before the adhesive technique procedure
