Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is an increasingly popular cosmetic dental treatment that is used to improve the shape, colour and overall appearance of patients’ teeth.

It uses the same resin material used for white fillings, and is most frequently used on the front teeth.

There have been huge advances in the materials used in bonding dentistry in recent years, meaning composite bonding can be used for disguising minor imperfections in the front teeth, closing small gaps and hiding minor tooth rotations, with no damage to your teeth.

Composite bonding is a pain-free experience that requires, in most cases, just one visit to the practice (after an initial consultation). Your dentist will be able to choose a shade of resin that closely matches the colour of your teeth, meaning that the results will look entirely natural. It is also possible to whiten your natural teeth prior to bonding treatment.

What does the treatment session involve?

  1. Your dentist picks a shade of resin that matches the natural colour of your teeth.
  2. The resin is carefully applied to your teeth, with no need for any work or damage to them.
  3. Your dentist then carefully shapes and smooths the resin to hide any imperfections, for a result that looks entirely natural.
  4. Once the resin has been shaped, it is hardened very quickly with the help of a special UV light.

Although composite bonding treatment does not last as long as veneers (on average 3-6 years), many patients find the treatment is highly cost-effective. It can also be repeated with no damage at all to your teeth.

Who is Suitable for Composite Bonding?

People with:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Where teeth have become yellow or discoloured
  • Where teeth are broken or damaged
  • For those with receding gums
  • For those with gapped teeth

Aftercare of Composite Bonding

One of the great advantages of composite bonding is it is inexpensive and a relatively uncomplicated dental option. It is worth noting, however, that the composite material may chip or wear slightly more than the material that is made in a laboratory such as a crown or a porcelain veneer. We estimate that the composite bonding material will stay looking good for around three to six years although that will depend on your oral habits and dietary factors. As time passes the material will appear slightly duller and may stain and show signs of a little wear. If this happens you will have the option of having them re-contoured replaced or re-polished.

How Long does Composite Bonding Last?

The amount of time your bonding lasts largely depends on you. Looking after the composite bonding and taking necessary precautions will make it last longer. Usually, the composite bonding lasts for about 3-6 years. However, it is also subject to wear and tear. In a case where the user breaks the composite restoration, please call us to schedule an appointment to get it fixed. Repairs are free of charge within the first 12 months of treatment.

What are the costs of Composite Bonding

At our clinic, the price of composite bonding start at £195 per tooth. At your initial consultation, you will be able to have a discussion with our cosmetic dentist with regards to what results you are looking to achieve for your smile. From there we are able to give you an exact idea of costings.
