Composite bonding is probably the simplest and easiest way to change the shape of the anterior (front) teeth, it can be particularly useful for patients with small irregularities or gaps in their smiles.

In essence composite bonding is achieved by placing thin sections of white plastic material directly onto the surface of the tooth; this means that the tooth itself is not damaged in any way.

Composite bonding is most commonly used after alignment of the teeth to correct any differences in tooth shape.
