Why choose Composite Bonding?

It’s a quick and effective way to fix minor cosmetic issues. The composite resin is hardened using UV light as soon as it’s applied, resulting in a tooth that you can comfortably bite down by the end of the appointment.

  • Fix damage or cracks

    The composite resin can be applied and molded into the required shape to correct any damage or imperfections. You will leave the surgery with your new smile.

  • Fix discolouring

    Composite bonding can be a solution for removing staining in teeth.

  • Patients often combine this treatment with tooth whitening

    If you are planning to have composite bonding, the dentist will typically recommend that you have any teeth whitening treatments prior to your bonding to ensure an exact colour match.

  • The treatment can also be an affordable solution

Composite Bonding - before and afters

This patient came in with concerns about her stained and uneven teeth colour. Our talented team used both teeth whitening and composite bonding on just four upper teeth to give her this amazing transformation.

Emily was unhappy with the shapes and colour of her teeth. We used teeth whitening and 10 composite bonding to give her a refreshed and perfect smile makeover.

This patient was always concerned about his teeth. We used a combination of Invisalign to straighten the teeth, followed by teeth whitening and four composite bonding to give him a brighter, sparkling smile.

Ravinder wanted to improve her already beautiful smile. We used a combination of Invisalign to straighten the teeth, followed by teeth whitening and composite bonding to give her the dream flawless smile she always wanted.

What is the treatment process?

Your tooth will then be prepared for treatment by slightly roughening the surface. It will then be coated with a liquid which helps the resin to adhere smoothly.

Your dentist will select a resin colour that exactly matches your tooth, so that the composite bond looks 100% natural.

The resin is applied and molded into the required shape. UV light is used to harden the resin before it is shaped again and polished by your dentist. When finished it will match the rest of the tooth.

Many of our patients choose to have a smile makeover which includes composite bonding. Ask your dentist for more information.

How do I care for my composite bonding?

We recommend that you:

  • Avoid biting nails or chewing items such as pen lids, which may chip the material. Bonds aren’t quite as strong as a normal tooth so it’s important to take precautions to avoid damage.
  • Avoid tea, coffee, smoking and food which may stain for at least 48 hours after yuor proceedure.
  • Brush your teeth often and see the hygienist regularly to maintain good oral health. This will help your composite bond stay clean and unstained.

With careful maintenance your composite bond will last for many years.

Combine composite bonding with teeth whitening

Composite bonding is often used alongside teeth whitening treatments, to help you achieve a whiter and more even smile.

Your dentist will typically recommend that you have any teeth whitening treatments before your composite bonds. The composite resin will be selected to exactly match your teeth colour, so it is advisable to get them to your preferred shade before treatment for bonding begins.

Once the composite bond has been placed, it is not possible to change the shade or make it whiter.

Just a little note to remind you that we are open, and ready to treat you. We want to reassure you that we are taking extensive precautions to safeguard your health, and the health of our team. It is safe to visit the dentist.

We are carefully following government guidelines on infection control, we can continue to see you and offer you the same levels of dental care. With the additional PPE and care pathways we’ve embraced, appointments are taking a little longer than usual. We are required to allow ‘fallow time’ (space between appointments to reduce infection risk). We’re pleased to say, at Together Dental, we’ve invested in air-extraction systems, HEPA filtration systems to reduce fallow time, increasing the number of patients we can now see.

We appreciate your continued understanding whilst we clear the back log of patients. We are currently still prioritising patients with emergency and urgent needs, and gradually resuming routine care. Appointments are still limited as we work through the backlog and waiting lists. Our NHS team of dentists and nurses are working at full capacity and our private dentists are now offering as many appointments as they can, to expand our care.
