Composite bonding is a cost-effective way to have a smile makeover in one visit without drills or injection.

Cosmetic dental bonding is a technique used to improve the shape/colour of teeth in a single visit. It involves the use of composite resins added to the surface of the tooth to contour them in a way that can close gaps, hide mild crowing and give a more uniform and symmetrical appearance to the smile.

The procedure is safe, effective and painless, requires no injections or drilling and rarely ever involves the removal of any tooth tissue.

Common Questions About Composite Boning

How long will the bonding last for?

Dental bonding can last for 3-5 years. And can be done in a single visit. You will leave the surgery with a new smile on the same day.

How much is composite bonding?

Dental bonding is considerably cheaper than porcelain veneers/crowns. Prices can be anything between £250-£350 per tooth. Depending on complexity.

Is composite bonding painful?

Composite bonding is an additive treatment. We are adding to the teeth, not taking away tooth structure, this helps to change their shape and close gaps without removing any tooth, meaning it’s a pain free smile makeover!

What are the advantages of composite bonding?

Composite smile makeovers are completed in a single visit without the use of injections and the filing of teeth. They rarely require the removal on any of your natural tooth structures and on average are 50% cheaper than porcelain veneers.

What are the disadvantages of composite bonding?

Bonding does not last as long as porcelain veneers, by comparison of the 3-5 year lifespan of composite veneers, porcelain veneers should last 10-15 years. Composite as a material is not as resistant to stains as porcelain veneers are. Cosmetic porcelain veneers are superior in appearance to dental bonding but invariably nearly always require the removal of tooth tissue which not everybody is happy with. However, bearing all this in mind good cosmetic results can be achieved depending on the skill of the dentist and the materials used.
