    Smile confidently with composite bonding

    Composite bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic dental procedure that involves using a small amount of composite filling material to shape and mould the edge of your tooth to give it a new look.

    This is a quick and subtle yet effective cosmetic treatment, and an excellent option for fixing chipped, fractured, or discoloured teeth.

    Recently joined this practice. I have always been an extremely nervous dental patient due to previous terrible experiences. I plucked up the courage to register here and I'm glad I did. They looked after me from start to finish and eased my worries. All the staff were friendly and professional and the building is modern and clean.

    How composite bonding works

    Composite bonding treatment is simple and typically completed in a single visit to The Mount. 

    Perfect for hiding dental flaws and quickly boosting your smile, it involves applying, moulding and contouring a tooth-coloured composite resin onto the surface of your tooth. Often used to correct issues like chips, cracks, gaps, and discolouration, composite bonding can help reshape your smile or fill small gaps in your smile. Our skilled dentists use the highest quality materials to ensure the bonding is long-lasting. 

    What happens during composite bonding treatment

    Step 1

    Assess the cosmetic needs of your smile and create a bespoke treatment plan. The £70 fee for this initial consultation is deducted from the cost of your composite bonding treatment when you decide to proceed.


    Step 2

    Prepare the surface of the teeth that will be receiving composite bonding. Your dentist does this by etching it using a totally safe acid solution to create a rough texture, to ensure the composite material will adhere to it.


    Step 3

    The composite resin is layered on to the tooth, with each layer being cured using a special light. This enables your dentist to sculpt and mould the composite material to the desired shape and size.


    Step 4

    The composite bonding is polished to blend seamlessly with the shine and texture of the adjacent teeth, for a smile that looks completely natural.

    Excellent dental practice, everyone is always so friendly and professional. Mathew my dentist is always so patient and explains everything in a manner which makes you feel very reassured.The surgery is always beautifully clean and you can always get an appointment.

    Answers to your questions about composite bonding

    • Is composite bonding a painful procedure?

      Usually, composite bonding is a comfortable procedure and doesn't need anaesthesia. However, some patients might feel mild sensitivity or discomfort during the treatment.

    • How long does composite bonding typically last?

      The durability of your composite bonding varies based on several factors, such as the tooth's location, your oral hygiene practices, and lifestyle choices like diet and smoking. Typically, with proper care, composite bonding can last for 5 to 7 years.

    • Is there any special care needed after getting composite bonding?

      The key to maximising the longevity of your bonding is maintaining excellent oral hygiene. This involves brushing thoroughly with an electric toothbrush twice a day and incorporating a fluoride mouthwash into your daily routine.

      Additionally, we advise daily flossing and the use of interdental brushes, which should be accurately sized and recommended by your dentist. Lastly, we suggest scheduling a composite conditioning polish at least every six months to eliminate any stains, rejuvenate the bonding, and ensure it maintains its sparkle and freshness.

    • What are the potential risks associated with composite bonding?

      The process of composite bonding is extremely conservative, and we hardly ever have to affect the underlying tooth structure. Instead, we simply apply layers of composite over your natural teeth, so there's really minimal risk of nerve damage or discomfort.

      The primary concern is that the bonding material may break if you're not cautious or if you disregard our aftercare instructions. However, if there are any issues, bonding can be repaired. We also suggest coming in for a composite conditioning polish every six months to maintain its freshness and to keep it stain-free.

    • Is composite bonding reversible if I decide I don't like the results?

      If needed, composite bonding can be taken off and replaced by your dentist. However, removing the composite material might entail removing a portion of the natural tooth structure as well.
