Composite Bonding

An advanced dentistry technique that allows you to achieve the smile you have always wanted

Composite bonding is an advanced technique which can improve the overall appearance of teeth, including their colour and shape, without damaging them and with minimal to no adjustment.

The composite resin forms a durable surface that can be polished to replicate the texture and appearance of your teeth. Composite bonding is a quick pain-free, minimally invasive and cost-effective treatment which can last between five and eight years if supported by good oral hygiene and regular check-ups.

    Composite Bonding

    Treatment plans are determined on a case-by-case basis and, in some instances, may be completed in a single session. For more complex cases it may take more that one session to achieve the required results. As part of the treatment programme, we are able to offer our clients study models for assessment of your bite and appearance after treatment. Pre-treatment mockups can also be created so that you can see how your teeth and smile will look post-treatment.

    In all cases, we offer a consultation and pre-treatment assessment to determine the condition, shade and shape of your teeth. This helps us to develop our patient-specific treatment recommendations and pricing.

    If you are also considering teeth whitening, we recommend carrying this out before any composite bonding treatment so that we can match the composite bonding shade to your new whiter teeth. For more information on our Composite Bonding services, click here.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin material is applied to the surface of a tooth and hardened using a special light. The resin is then shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth, creating a natural-looking finish.

    Composite bonding is often used to repair chips, cracks, and gaps in the teeth, as well as to cover up discolouration or staining. It can also be used to change the shape or size of the teeth or to fill in spaces between the teeth.

    Composite bonding is generally not painful, as a local anaesthetic is used to numb the area being treated. Some patients may experience slight discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, but this usually subsides within a few days.

    The lifespan of composite bonding can vary, but it typically lasts for several years with proper care. Good oral hygiene, such as brushing and flossing, and avoiding habits that can damage the resin, such as biting on hard objects, can help extend the lifespan of composite bonding.

    Chips and Cracks

    Sometimes the edges of our teeth can become worn, translucent and chipped and, as a result, when we smile, we may not be happy with the way they look. With composite bonding we can match your tooth shade (natural shade or post-whitening) to restore your natural smile, fixing fractured edges as well as shaping and contouring to improve the overall appearance.

    Edge Bonding

    Genetics, lifestyle or orthodontic treatments can all be contributing factors to why the edges of your teeth are not aligned. Using composite bonding we can carry out edge bonding, which allows us to correct this, aligning the edges of the tooth surfaces for that perfect smile.

    Composite Veneers

    Depending on the individual case, this treatment can be a fantastic and non-invasive way of completely changing the appearance and colour of your teeth. A thin veneer of composite resin is placed over the whole tooth surface, allowing us to choose any shade and shape to compliment your smile and appearance. This technique can also be used on individual teeth, which may be mis-aligned or darker in colour.

    Closing the Gap

    In some cases, we are able to close gaps between certain teeth using the shape and shade of your current tooth appearance. The ‘black triangle’ that sometimes appears after orthodontic treatment may also be treatable using composite bonding.

    Recession and Exposed Tooth Surfaces

    If the root surface is exposed it can be very vulnerable to further wear and will look darker in colour compared to your enamel. We are able to protect and cover root surfaces using this method to protect the surface from further damage, while also improving the appearance to match the enamel shade of your tooth.

    Replacement of old Composite Fillings

    Still have that old filling from years ago? Black edges and discolouration over time is not unusual. We can replace your old fillings, returning them to their former glory.
