Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that offers a solution to minor imperfections. It can also be used to straighten the edges of the teeth to make them appear more uniform. This is known as edge bonding, and when the composite is placed onto the whole front surface of the tooth, this is known as a composite veneer.

The benefits of dental bonding
Enhanced aesthetics: Composite bonding can transform your smile by concealing imperfections and creating a more uniform appearance.
Minimally invasive: Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, composite bonding typically requires minimal removal of tooth enamel, preserving your natural teeth.
Quick and painless: Most treatments can be completed in a single visit, with little to no discomfort.
Cost-effective: Composite bonding is often a more affordable option compared to porcelain veneers or crowns, making it accessible to a wider range of patients.
Long-lasting results: With proper care and maintenance, composite bonding can last up to 5-7 years, providing lasting value for your investment.
Are there any disadvantages of dental bonding?
While composite bonding offers numerous advantages, it's essential to be aware of its limitations:
- Staining: The composite material may stain over time, especially if you consume staining foods or beverages like coffee, red wine, or tobacco products. This is less of an issue with longer lasting porcelain restorations.
- Durability: Although durable, composite bonding is not as strong as natural teeth or alternatives like porcelain veneers. It may be prone to chipping or wear with heavy use.
- Maintenance: Maintaining good oral hygiene practices is crucial to extend the lifespan of your composite bonding. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are essential.
How long does it last?
The longevity of composite bonding can vary depending on individual factors, such as oral hygiene habits, diet, and the patients bite / occlusion. On average, it can last anywhere from 5 to 7 years with proper care. Composite is also easily repaired chairside.

What is composite bonding?
Can composite bonding be used on more than one tooth?
Yes, composite bonding can be used to repair a single tooth or used on multiple teeth to transform the appearance of your smile. At your first appointment, we do a mock/ trial smile so you can see on your teeth what the improvements could be like without committing to anything. This mock up is completely reversible and takes a few minutes.
How long does composite bonding last?
Typically, bonding material lasts between 5-7years before needing to be touched up or replaced.
Is composite bonding treatment painful?
Composite bonding is a widely favoured cosmetic option due to its pain-free nature. In most cases, it doesn't necessitate the removal of any natural tooth structure or enamel, ensuring a comfortable experience free of pain or discomfort. Furthermore, the need for injections or anaesthesia is typically minimal, if required at all, making it an attractive choice for patients seeking effective and painless cosmetic enhancements.
Can composite bonding be reversed?
Yes, composite bonding is reversible. If you change your mind over time and no longer want the composite bonding material on your tooth, it can simply be removed.
Can you whiten composite bonding?
No, the resin will not react with the whitening product, therefore it’s best to get your teeth whitened first and when you are happy with the shade, get your composite bonding done to match.
How do I look after my tooth following composite bonding treatment?
Maintaining excellent oral hygiene in your daily routine is essential to maximize the longevity of your bonding. In some cases, you may need periodic maintenance for the restorations, especially if you consume teeth-staining beverages like tea or coffee or indulge in foods that can cause staining. These maintenance needs can be conveniently monitored during your routine check-up appointments.
How much is composite bonding?
Our composite bonding starts from £199 per tooth.
How long does composite bonding take to do?
