Composite bonding

Composite bonding is where a tooth-coloured resin composite is sculpted and bonded to the tooth. It is a minimally invasive, cost effective technique and can be completed in as little as one appointment. It has many advantages when compared to traditional ceramic restorations, including:

  • Less destructive to the tooth
  • Often does not need drilling or injections
  • Cheaper
  • Easier to repair

FAQs

Can I have composite bonding?2018-12-19T12:25:55+00:00

Although many people can benefit from this technique, it is not suitable for everyone. You can have a discussion with your dentist to see if it could work for you.

What is the procedure?2018-12-19T12:26:19+00:00

Most cases can be completed in one appointment. The teeth are cleaned and prepared with etch. An adhesive is applied to the tooth and set using a bright light. A resin composite is then sculpted to the desired size/shape and set again with the bright light. Finally, the composite is polished to leave it smooth and as natural as possible.

Does it hurt?2018-12-19T12:26:46+00:00

For the majority of people, no! Most cases can be completed pain-free without the need for a local anaesthetic injection. However, for more complex cases where tooth preparation or removal of current fillings is needed then local anaesthetic may be needed.

How long does it last?2018-12-19T12:27:08+00:00

As with any cosmetic dental procedure, composite bonding doesn’t last forever and will eventually need replacing. It is very difficult to give a lifespan for the restorations as it depends on many factors, including how well you look after them at home.

How do I look after my composite bonding?2018-12-19T12:27:33+00:00

Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, as well as daily flossing. Poor oral hygiene can cause early loss of the composite and decay to form around them. The composite is not as strong as natural teeth, so it is important that you avoid using these teeth for biting hard things e.g. nuts, pens, hair pins etc. This can cause them to fall off or chip. Strongly coloured food and drink can cause staining around the margin of the composite and so are best avoided (e.g. tea, coffee, curry, red wine, smoking).

How much does it cost?2018-12-19T12:28:00+00:00

Prices start from £80 a tooth. The price depends on the time it will take to complete and complexity of your case.

Can I whiten my teeth too?2018-12-19T12:29:01+00:00

If you were considering whitening your teeth also, it is best to whiten your teeth first and then have your composite bonding completed. The composite can then be matched to the new tooth colour. Find out more about whitening here.

Absolutely love this dentist. I have a deep set fear of dentists, and this place makes me feel so comfy and talks to me... throughout the whole procedures. Things I've never had done before are spoken through clearly and they always ask if you're comfortable. If not they are quick to numb you more and get you fixed so you can have your procedure pain free. I just had RC treatment, first time ever, and I was so SO scared when I arrived -nearly throwing up scared-. I was nearly asleep on the bed by the end. They are really curing my fear of dentists. I'm so utterly grateful to have such an amazing, calming dentist. 😌read more

I cannot express my appreciation and thanks sufficiently, or properly, for the professional and caring way with which I... was treated. Dr.Usmaan Majid made me feel comfortable throughout ( three teeth extracted and replaced with a plate wired to the teeth on either side of the hole). He and the practice must be the best in Yorkshire or possible Britain. I would heartily recommend the Dewsbury Dental Service to anyone. Brian Clifford JP, FCTSI.read more
