Dental Bonding

Improve the shape or colour of your teeth in a single visit

Are you unhappy with your smile? Are you conscious of gaps between your teeth? Do you want a cost-effective smile makeover in one visit without drills or injections?

If your answer to any of the above is yes, composite bonding can help improve your smile.

Cosmetic dental bonding involves building composite resin directly onto your tooth, covering light damage, closing small gaps or completely rebuilding teeth. Made from a combination of plastic and glass, composite can perfectly mimic tooth enamel and can be matched to your existing tooth colour to slot seamlessly into your smile.

Composite bonding is a completely safe, effective and painless procedure, and there is very rarely any need to remove a layer of enamel in preparation. Contact us today to find out how dental bonding can help improve your smile.

Frequently asked questions

  • How long will composite bonding last?

    Dental bonding can last for up to 4 years following treatment. It can be repaired or touched up in a single visit to the practice if necessary.

  • Is bonding expensive?

    Bonding is a considerably cheaper option for transforming your smile than porcelain veneers or crowns. Our prices start from £200 per tooth depending on the complexity of each case.

  • Is the bonding procedure painful?

    Not at all. We don’t need to remove any of your natural tooth for the procedure and adding the composite to change the shape or size of your teeth is completely painless.

  • What are the advantages of composite bonding?

    Bonding can give noticeable and impressive results in just a single visit to Aesthetique Dental Care, without the use of injections, fillings or drills. Most cases are extremely straightforward, requiring no loss of any of your natural tooth, and can be significantly more cost effective than other restorative treatments.

  • Can dental bonding be reversed?

    Yes, the process is reversible should you decide you no longer want the composite bonding material on your teeth. We can remove it, leaving your teeth as they were before.

  • Does dental bonding damage your teeth?

    No, bonding doesn’t damage your teeth at all and can be polished, shaped, amended and removed according to your preference.

  • Can you eat normally after dental bonding treatment?

    It’s best to avoid hard foods for the first couple of days after your bonding appointment, to give the composite time to harden and settle properly on your teeth. This includes food such as raw fruit and vegetables and crusty bread. You will then be able to eat as normal, although take care when biting directly into hard food.

  • What are the drawbacks with bonding?

    Bonding does not last as long as other restorative options, such as porcelain veneers. Also, it is not as resistant to stains, and can become discoloured over time. Cosmetically, porcelain veneers are superior in appearance to dental bonding but do nearly always require the removal of tooth structure, which not every patient is comfortable with. However, despite this, good aesthetically pleasing results can be achieved with bonding.
