Composite bonding is a technique that has been used in cosmetic dentistry for many years and can transform your smile in just a single visit.
The process involves the skillful and artistic use of dental composite (white filling material) directly shaped and molded on to the teeth to give the appearance of a straighter, whiter smile. This technique usually requires little to no drilling, and can be complete without injections.
Composite Bonding Vs Composite Veneers
Composite veneers cover the entire surface of the fronting and edge of your teeth. These are usually directly bonded 'free hand' on to your teeth to give the illusion of a more aligned 'perfect' smile.
Composite bonding is typically only added to a part of your tooth, creating length if required or restoring tooth fractures or chips. Bonding does not cover the full surface of the tooth.
White filling material is used for a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, including:
Composite veneers can be a fast, minimally invasive and inexpensive option for the beautiful smile you're looking for.
Unlike porcelain veneer placement, which can often take more than two visits, composite bonding can be completed in one appointment, providing a 'same day' smile.
The average longevity for composite bonding and/or veneers is approximately 3-7 years; this is subject to personal oral hygiene, routine examinations and maintenance.
Composite bonding prices begin from £375 per tooth.
Composite veneer prices begin from £400 per tooth.
