What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding involves using a tooth-coloured resin that is fixed to or between the teeth. The material is similar to that used in dental fillings. Composite bonding or composite veneers, can be applied in a shade of your choosing and produces beautiful and natural-looking results.

The composite resin is made with a combination of plastic material and glass particles that can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth. Once applied, it will be shaped and polished to resemble your teeth and improve your smile.

The history of composite bonding

Adhesive dentistry dates back as far as 1955 with technologies and bonding processes improving significantly over time. 

In approximately 2012, universal adhesive bonding treatments were commercialised, allowing professional dentists to carry out treatments which involved adhesive bonding in a single treatment.

Dr Oliver has been treating patients for over 30 years and has unrivalled experience with composite bonding. 

How is composite bonding done?

Composite veneers or composite bonding involves the application of thin layers of composite resin that is bonded to the natural teeth. The cosmetic procedure is incredibly quick and can be done in one session. 

Results can last several years making it a popular choice for those looking to improve the appearance of their teeth with long-lasting results. If you decide you do not like the look or feel of composite veneers, the resin can be removed easily.

The benefits and top 5 reasons to get composite bonding in London

Composite veneers have many benefits if fitted by an experienced cosmetic dentist. Composite bonding can disguise damage to the underlying tooth, close gaps and improve the appearance of crooked teeth. 

Here are the top 5 reasons to get composite bonding in London:

1. Cost – composite veneers cost significantly less than porcelain veneers

2. Durability – they can last for several years with amazing results, making them a cost-effective way to improve your natural smile

3. Efficiency – they can be fixed in a single application and repaired easily if they become chipped or damaged

4. Appearance – composite bonding can brighten and whiten your smile while fixing minor damage or gaps in the teeth

5. Minimal to no damage – treatment is pain-free since it involves no shaving of the teeth and therefore they can be removed easily without leaving lasting damage

Quality composite veneers will brighten and whiten the teeth in a natural-looking way. They can be shaped to any size to resemble your natural smile and correct minor dental issues.

Composite bonding is also less invasive than other methods of cosmetic dentistry, such as porcelain veneers. This is because there is no shaving involved with the natural tooth. For this reason, composite bonding can be removed easily should you wish to revert to your natural smile.

An experienced cosmetic dentist can repair damage to the composite veneers if they become chipped or damaged. This is an advantage over porcelain veneers, which would need to be entirely replaced.

The risks of composite bonding

There are some drawbacks to composite bonding. Composite veneers can become stained over time and may be more prone to chipping and damage than porcelain veneers. However the cost of composite veneers usually offsets this risk, since they can be repaired easily without needing to replace the whole veneer.

How much does composite bonding in London cost?

Composite veneers start at £375 per tooth at Dr Oliver’s dental practice in London. They are significantly less costly than porcelain veneers, however you should weigh up longevity when choosing dental treatments based on cost.

How long does composite bonding last?

Depending how well you care for composite veneers, they can last for several years. The average duration for composite bonding is between 4-8 years.

How to take care of composite bonding

Take care of your composite veneers as you would your natural teeth, if you want to maintain a bright and white smile. Avoid substances which may stain, including harsh and abrasive toothpaste.
