What is composite edge bonding and how is it different to composite veneers?

One of the most common cosmetic dental treatments we provide on a daily basis is composite bonding or composite edge bonding. Now, let us explain what composite edge bonding is exactly.

This could be from remnants of the pulp tissue being left within the root canal system and then decomposing within the tooth permeating into the dentine. There can also be rupture of the blood vessels within the pulp allowing blood products to see… CONTINUE READING
