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

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