Composite BondingComposite bonding, also known as dental composite resins, are a type of dental cement made of synthetic resins. They are used in dentistry due to their tooth-like appearance, insensitivity to dehydration, ease of manipulation, and affordability.

Dental composite resins are typically composed of:

  • Bis-GMA and other dimethacrylate monomers (TEGMA, UDMA, HDDMA): These are the base materials that form the resin matrix. Bis-GMA, or bisphenol A-glycidyl methacrylate, is a common monomer used in dental composites.
  • Filler material such as silica: The filler material gives the composite greater strength, wear resistance, decreased polymerisation shrinkage, improved translucency, fluorescence and colour, and a reduced exothermic reaction on polymerisation. The fillers can be made of glasses or ceramics, including crystalline silica, silicone dioxide, lithium/barium-aluminium glass, borosilicate glass containing zinc/strontium/lithium, zirconia-silica, or zirconium oxide.
  • Photoinitiator: In most applications, a photoinitiator is added to the composite. This substance starts the polymerisation reaction of the resins when blue light is applied. Common photoinitiators include camphorquinone (CQ), phenylpropanedione (PPD), or lucirin (TPO).
  • Coupling agent such as silane: This is used to enhance the bond between the resin matrix and the filler material.
  • Various additives: These can control the rate of reaction.

Safety and Longevity of Composite Resins

Composite resins of composite bonding dental treatment are considered safe for use in dentistry. They are biocompatible, meaning they are not harmful to living tissue. They are also durable and can withstand the pressures of chewing and biting. However, the longevity of composite resin restorations can depend on various factors, including the skill of the dentist, patient characteristics, and the type and location of damage.

Aesthetics of Composite Resins

One of the main advantages of composite resins is their aesthetic appeal. They can be made in a wide range of tooth colours, allowing for a near-invisible restoration of teeth. This makes them a popular choice for fillings, especially in visible areas of the mouth.

Great dentist and hygienist, however the waiting room had no wifi (and no signal) which meant I couldn’t work when waiting. When I asked if there was wifi, I was just told ‘no’ by the receptionist. I was going to add a suggestion to the box, but there was no pen.

I have attended this practice for many years and I never fail to be impressed by the quality of the work carried out by both the dentists and the dental hygienists. Procedures are explained clearly and in such a friendly manner. And most importantly despite having some major work carried out on a few occasions I did not feel any pain during, or after, the treatment. I would also like to pont out that the reception staff are so efficient, friendly and most helpful. This is an outstanding dental practice.
