Emergency Composite Bonding in London at Cost Effective Prices

If a tooth is cracked or chipped or you need to change the shape or the colour of the tooth then composite tooth bonding will be a very good option. Our team of emergency dentists are highly experienced in cosmetic dental work and would love to show you how you can improve your smile with composite bonding. 

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is used in dentistry to help improve the colour, shape and the overall appearance of teeth.  Made from a material called composite resin it can be shaped and moulded onto teeth to produce a straighter and whiter smile.  This is a treatment that is often used for stained, gapped or chipped teeth.

Some of the most common uses of composite bonding are

  • For the repair of chipped or cracked teeth
  • To achieve an improved appearance for the teeth
  • To close any gaps there are between teeth
  • To lengthen teeth

The composite bonding process

  • Composite bonding is not complicated and will start with the dentist choosing a composite resin colour from a shade guide that will match with the natural colour or the whitened colour of your teeth
  • The next step is for the dentist to etch the surface of the damaged tooth very slightly to roughen it.  After that a liquid will be added to your tooth to act as a bonding agent
  • Once the preparation stage has been finished, your dentist will mould the putty like tooth coloured resin into the correct shape and it will then be hardened with UV rays
  • The now hardened cosmetic bonding material will be shaped and trimmed for the last time and polished so that it matches the remaining tooth surface

Composite Bonding is a non-invasive  procedure that can really change your smile. Some of its benefits include:

  • Improvement in the colour of your teeth.
  • Ensuring functional and aesthetic results.
  • No or very minimal drilling is required so no need for an injection.
  • One appointment is usually all that is needed.
  • Composite bonding is, in some cases, reversible.
  • There are many treatment options available.
  • Any failure of this treatment is very rare and can easily be fixed.
  • Costs will be lower due to reduced laboratory charges.

What is the cost of composite bonding?

The cost of composite bonding depends on the complexity of the case and the expertise of the dentist as well as how long it take to complete. Composites might vary, and so the cost  will too. As a guide, asmall fill in or an addition will start in cost from about £195 upwardsfor each tooth. We can arrange finance options and we think that our prices are affordable to everyone.

These are some of the FAQs on composite bonding.

If you need a chipped tooth repaired, compositebonding will be a great choice. One of our expert dentists will be able to restore the look of your tooth and smooth the surface so that further damage is prevented.

Will have composite bonding be painful?

No, this treatment will not cause any pain, but it will help to alter the tooth shape and will close any gaps between teeth.

Will having composite damage my teeth?

Dental bonding has almost no risk. The  composite resin used is not as strong a material as your natural teeth are made of and sometimes might separate or chip which will rarelyhappen with a crown or a veneer.

What length of time will my composite bonding last?

This will depend on what bonding you have had done and also how carefully you carry out oral health regimes. Bonding material will typically last from about three to ten years before it needs to be replaced.

Can I have teeth that have beentreated with composite bondingwhitened?

Bonding material will not whiten as your natural teeth would but if you do have teeth whitening then all that you will need to do is have the composite bonding changed to one that’s colour matches your other teeth. 

Will my composite bonding be permanent?

Teeth bonding cannot be considered a permanent solution for a dental cosmetic problem although it can last for a long time. It is quitepossible to have your dental bonding for up to ten years, if every care is taken.

Do you need to give bonded teeth special attention?

Like all teeth, teeth that have been subjected to composite bonding need flossing and twice daily brushing. They should also be cleaned by a hygienistevery 6 months. Bonded teeth can be stained by coffee,red wine or tobacco andyou will not be able to whiten them as you could your natural teeth. Whitening can be done before composite bonding is carried out.
