Composite Bonding

Our highly skilled dentists regularly restore smiles through composite bonding. Used to correct minor imperfections, dental bonding leaves you with results that are both natural and impressive.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is a non-invasive treatment that enhances your natural teeth using a material called resin, creating a brand new surface layer for the tooth.

Our compassionate dentists will often recommend composite bonding treatment to fill gaps between the teeth or repair discolouration. It can also help to rebuild areas of damage and enhance the shape and appearance of your teeth.

What does composite bonding look like?

One of the benefits of composite bonding is that it can be colour-matched to your existing teeth. As the composite resin restores the initial function of the tooth, it tends to look completely natural. Therefore, unless you choose to tell them, nobody will notice that you’ve undergone the procedure.

Why may you need composite bonding?

One of our experienced clinicians may recommend composite teeth bonding to repair the following dental issues:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Fractured or worn teeth
  • Discoloured or stained teeth

What is the composite bonding treatment process?

Composite bonding treatment is minimally invasive and does not require sedation.

After your consultation, you will be invited back to our warm and welcoming practice, where one of our skilful clinicians will colour-match the composite resin to your existing teeth, ensuring a natural shade. Your tooth will then be prepared and the resin will be applied. After this, the resin is hardened and polished by UV light.

Composite bonding can usually be completed in just one sitting. If multiple teeth need to be bonded, this may require multiple appointments. We will discuss this with you based on your oral health requirements.

Benefits of composite bonding

When you visit our practice, our experienced clinicians will take the time to discuss the right treatment for you, talking through your oral health history and the goals you’d like to achieve for your smile.

There are many benefits of choosing composite bonding, including:

  • Results can be made to look completely natural
  • Predictable aesthetic and functional results
  • No drilling needed
  • No injections required
  • Can be completed in a single appointment
  • Reversible in most cases
  • Failure is rare and very easy to fix
  • Can be done directly in the chair without laboratory involvement
  • Suitable for patients of all ages

Aftercare of composite bonding treatment

Look after your composite bonding the same way as you would your natural teeth. Make sure to brush using fluoride toothpaste and floss twice a day.

Just like your enamel, your bonding can become stained. Keep your composite bonding looking fresh and white by limiting your consumption of food and drinks with a strong colour, such as black coffee and red wine. We also recommend visiting our practice twice a year, or every six months, for your regular dentist and hygienist appointments.

If you are continuing to experience discomfort after your composite bonding treatment, or if something doesn’t feel right, please contact us immediately.

Cost of composite bonding

The cost of composite bonding treatment can vary depending on how many teeth are being bonded. It may also differ based on your tailored treatment plan. When you choose our practice, your dentist will keep you informed about the costs before treatment begins. You will never be surprised by any hidden fees, and our team is always available to answer any questions you may have.
