CARING FOR YOUR SMILE

Indications

Composite bonding can fix a defect or imperfection within a tooth. It can be used to repair a decayed, cracked, or discoloured tooth. This procedure can also close small gaps in between teeth.

Composite bonding can help increase the size of a tooth; if for instance you have a tooth that is shorter than the rest, it helps to make them all even

Your Composite Bonding Journey With Us

What to expect during your treatment

Book a consultation

As every case is different, you will have an initial consultation appointment where we will spend some time to fully understand your cosmetic wishes and make sure you are suitable for treatment.

We will then carry out a full assessment of your oral health to make sure you are dentally fit before providing you with a bespoke treatment plan detailing all appointments and costs from the outset.

Once treatment has been planned and your bonding appointment scheduled, it is often completed in a single appointment meaning you will walk out with the smile you want on the same day!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • One of the main advantages of composite bonding is that it is minimally invasive and, in most cases, it can be placed with little to no damage to your underlying tooth structure and therefore does not require any drilling or injections.
  • Another big advantage of composite resin is that it is repairable so if it chips or breaks, more composite can be added to it and polished out to make it look like new again.
  • Composite bonding can often be carried out in a single appointment meaning you can get the smile you want in a time effective and pain-free manner.

Like everything – this depends on how well you look after it! Usually we say anything between 3-5 years but is dependent on a number of things, e.g. if you grind your teeth, bite your nails or a diet of hard food can lead to chipping. Composite bonding usually involves a yearly maintenance appointment for polishing and repair of any minor chipping.

In general, even if you don’t have composite bonding, if it’s not food or drink then it probably shouldn’t go in your mouth. Avoid using your teeth to tear open crisp packets and containers. Nail biting should be avoided, habits like pen chewing should be stopped, hard things in your diet like nuts and bones can cause increased wear of teeth and composite.

Heavily staining food and drinks can stain the composite, just like your natural tooth, and you may need more frequent appointments with the hygienist for polishing – tea, coffee, red wine, turmeric and curry. Just imagine anything you would want to avoid spilling down a white shirt!

They are very similar, but a composite veneer will cover the whole of the tooth surface whereas bonding may be on the edges and partially over front surface.

It is very beneficial to have well aligned teeth before composite bonding. If they are not straight, then the composite will be thick in some areas and thin in others and you will not have your optimum functionality and aesthetics.
