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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
