Do you receive compliments over your smile? Did you ever fall in love with someone’s smile and never got over it? Well, here we will talk about how we are going to make our smile more elegant, beautiful, and attractive? Smile, a priceless possession of humans, which is appreciated by our friends, family, and in some cases a stranger. It is a significant part of our emotional state and physical projection. A confident-radiant smile exudes very positive energy.
Nobody wants their possession to be tainted with negativity, all of us want an impressive and attractive smile. Someone with a pretty smile definitely has easy access to people’s hearts. And obviously, our teeth play an important role when we smile. Composite Edge Bonding acts guard to your precious teeth and does not allow your confidence to waver.
Generally, the application of using a Composite (plastic, durable material) in Dentistry is referred to as with many names – ‘Dental/Tooth/Composite-Resin/Composite Bonding. Don’t get confused, they are identical.
Generally, composite bonding is the process of improving teeth structure or restoration of the teeth. Composite Edge Bonding (also known as Incisal Edge Bonding) specifically means that the composite is applied only to the edges and not to the entire teeth.
A one-line definition would be – ‘short-term cosmetic dental procedure’.
Best suited for low-pressure areas like the upper front tooth/teeth or incisors (canines can also be included, but rarely). Lower tooth/teeth are also applicable, but only after analyzing their bite-type and the frame when the upper jaw meets the lower jaw.
Time duration of the entire procedure is lesser compared to other dental procedures, i.e., 1 hour (give or take); it may vary depending upon the number of teeth under treatment. Recommended number in one go is 8-10 teeth for best results.
It is not suitable for everyone, so, detailed consultation with your Dentist is mandatory before initiation. Also, check if your insurance covers the composite edge bonding procedure or not.

Regular attendance to follow-ups/check-ups/hygiene visits/dental cleanings – every six months.
Brush twice a day for at least 2 minutes with a non-coarse toothpaste and soft-bristle/electric toothbrush.
Regular flossing with a floss/flossing device/interdental brush once a day.
Avoid hard foods like candy.
No biting of things like pen caps or pencil bottoms.
No coffee, tea, red wine, or smoking a cigarette for a minimum of 2 days immediately after the composite edge bonding has been performed.
No grinding of teeth, else wear a guard.
Take a healthy diet that should be lacking in acidic and carbs-rich foods and beverages.
Consult a doctor immediately in case of sudden/accidental chipping/ breaking; if you notice any sharp edges; or if tooth/teeth feels weird on biting.

Composite bonding doesn’t ruin your teeth and is even a reversible process. It’s a good cure to look up to by people requiring any cosmetic treatment for their teeth. Composite Edge Bonding is a form of art that aids in protecting them.
Remember, Composite Edge Bonding is just a boost to your personality and is not the defining point of it, so don’t think of it as a miracle procedure. It just enhances your already beautiful character.
