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?2020-07-07T13:48:02+01:00

Prices start from £120 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.

A wonderful experience! The receptionist who I spoke to was very helpful and understanding. I was referred to Dr. Barzy... who took time to understand the problem I was having with a tooth. I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Barzy on two occasions. I cannot thank him enough for his advice. Whilst I am not a patient at the practice, I have no hesitation to be seen privately by Dr. Barzy at this wonderful practice. Please convey my gratitude to Dr. Barzy and the receptionists.read more
