Composite Bonding

Composite bonding has experienced a real surge in demand lately and is now the most popular cosmetic dental treatment our patients ask for.

While a perfect smile is high on the list, so is the need to protect the teeth and avoid unnecessary procedures. That is where composite bonding, also known as dental bonding ticks all the boxes. It is akin to white fillings and is mostly used on anterior teeth – the ones that show when you smile.

Yes, chipped teeth can be repaired by applying and sculpting tooth coloured resin. It can be done on a single tooth or on multiple teeth. It is essential to see your dentist for a chipped tooth as it will not heal on its own, and you should not try fixing it at home.

It is the safest and most affordable way to fix the gap between your teeth. We use a tooth coloured material (resin) to shape and sculpt around your tooth and bond it to close the gap between your teeth.

We almost always recommend composite bonding to people having Invisalign® to overcome any blemishes on their teeth and to shape their teeth after teeth straightening.

Composite bonding lasts as least 5 years, but does not last as long as veneers. However, the cost effectiveness of this treatment and the fact that it can be re-done without damaging teeth makes it a very popular option.

No, on its own it does not hurt. Generally, the area of the tooth that is being worked upon is not sensitive so you won’t feel any pain.

Case selection is crucial for composite bonding. Our Private dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your oral health and eating habits before recommending any treatment. With that said, generally, anybody with a reasonably good oral health can benefit from composite bonding. If you are looking to get rid of some imperfections in teeth like small chips, slight changes to the shape of your teeth or discolouration, then composite bonding may be the correct treatment for you.

This treatment is not available on the NHS as its cosmetic treatment. Its best to ask our private dentist as they offer cosmetic bonding for 1-2 teeth from £175 per tooth and SmileFast is from £1800. We offer 0% finance options Please ask the treatment coordinator for further details.
