Composite bonding in Welling, Kent

Perfect your smile seamlessly with composite bonding

Composite bonding is a swift and effective way to enhance your smile, correcting imperfections like chips, gaps, and discolouration in just one visit. It’s painless, affordable, and delivers natural-looking results without altering the natural structure of your teeth.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding, often referred to as dental or tooth bonding, is a groundbreaking procedure in cosmetic dentistry that targets and corrects dental imperfections, significantly enhancing the beauty and confidence of your smile. This minimally invasive treatment involves the application of a tooth-coloured composite resin to mend issues such as chips, fractures, discolouration, and small gaps between teeth. The process is not only quick and effective but also reversible, allowing for adjustments as needed.

With composite bonding, you can achieve a dramatically improved smile in just one visit, making it an ideal solution for those looking to enhance their appearance without the commitment of more invasive procedures.

Our approach

Initial consultation: Your journey starts with a detailed consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic dentists. We discuss your aesthetic goals, evaluate your dental health, and formulate a personalised treatment plan.

Preparation: The tooth surface is gently prepared to ensure the bonding material adheres effectively.

Shade selection: We select a composite resin that closely matches the colour of your natural teeth for seamless results.

Application: The resin is meticulously applied, moulded, and sculpted to correct imperfections.

Curing: A special light is used to harden the resin quickly.

Polishing: The bonded tooth is polished to match the sheen of your natural teeth, ensuring your smile looks natural and radiant.

Frequently asked questions - Composite Bonding

How long does the composite bonding process take?

Typically, the bonding process can be completed in a single visit, usually taking between 30 minutes to an hour per tooth, depending on the complexity of the case.

How long does composite bonding last?

With proper care, composite bonding can last from 5 to 7 years. Longevity can be extended with good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups.

How do I care for my bonded teeth?

Avoid biting on hard objects and foods, brush at least twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly. Avoiding substances that can stain, like coffee, tea, and red wine, can also help maintain the bonding material’s colour.

Is composite bonding painful?

The procedure is generally painless as it involves minimal alteration to the tooth structure. Anaesthesia is rarely required, unless the bonding is used to fill a decayed tooth.

Can the bonded teeth be whitened?

No, the composite material used in bonding does not respond to whitening agents. It’s important to consider whitening your teeth before getting them bonded so the resin can be matched to your desired tooth colour.

What are the advantages of composite bonding?

Composite bonding is less invasive, does not require as much removal of tooth enamel, and is usually reversible. It’s also more cost-effective than veneers and crowns and can be completed in just one visit.

Is everyone a candidate for composite bonding?

Most people with minor cosmetic dental issues are candidates; however, those with significant oral health issues like severe decay or gum disease may need to address these before undergoing bonding.

What should I do if my bonded tooth chips or breaks?

Contact our team. Composite bonding can usually be quickly and easily repaired or replaced.

Can composite bonding be removed or reversed?

Yes, one of the major benefits of composite bonding is that it is reversible. The material can be removed or altered without permanent damage to your teeth.

Are there any risks associated with composite bonding?

The risks are minimal, but the composite resin is not as strong as natural teeth, so there’s a risk of chipping or separating from your tooth.
