Teeth Bonding

Unlike porcelain veneers, which are manufactured in a dental laboratory, composite bonding is generally done in a single visit at the clinic. In certain cases where multiple teeth require bonding, we anticipate requiring 2-3 appointments for the whole process.

An initial consultation takes place to help the dentist determine exactly what you would like to change about your smile and give you options on ways to do this. It is recommended that you whiten your teeth prior to bonding - this is also discussed and planned, if necessary, at your bonding consultation. A ‘trial smile’ is placed on your teeth temporarily to demonstrate the proposed final aesthetic outcome and this really helps you to visualise your new smile before proceeding.

When both you and the dentist are happy, you can book your bonding appointment. On the day, the composite resin will be applied to the necessary areas and hardened with a special light before more layers are added. Once the bonding process is set, the composite resin and your natural teeth will be contoured and polished for an even result.

The composite resin used is almost as strong as your natural teeth. With good care, dental bonding can last up to 7 years. During your regular dental exams, your dental care specialist will help you decide if the dental bonding and contouring procedure needs to be re-done to maintain your smile.

Composite Bonding Q&A

What is a Composite Material?

Composite is a material produced from resins and a number of fillers. It is essentially white filling material but it has been enhanced through the years so it is stronger and can bond better to teeth. Composite bonding is a hot trend in dentistry due to its aesthetically pleasing appearance. Dentists are now able to completely match the shade, translucency and texture of a natural tooth with composite bonding.

If your teeth have minor cosmetic imperfections that you’re conscious of, bonding may well be a quick and effective way to even out your smile. Even if porcelain veneers are your ultimate goal, you could opt for tooth bonding as a short-term measure while you save for the more expensive treatment.

It is non-invasive (so there are no injections/needles), and there’s no drilling of the natural tooth surface, so you can have a beautiful result on the same day!

One minor disadvantage of composite bonding is that it has a greater tendency to stain and chip than natural teeth, but it can be easily polished in future by your dentist.

Usually composite bonding can be applied to 4 to 6 teeth on the same day, meaning you can transform your smile in just a couple of hours.

The bonding will need to be replaced approximately every 5 to 7 years although this could be sooner if you smoke, or drink a lot of coffee and wine.

Before & After Bonding Examples

Forget Instagram filters and Photoshop, cosmetic bonding can help you to cosmetically enhance your smile without investing in veneers.

Repair Chipped Teeth

You can have composite bonding applied to several teeth, it can be used to repair a chipped tooth; or even make the edges of your teeth more even. No pain, no injections, no drilling.

Enhance Teeth Length

Here, composite edge bonding has been used on 6 teeth to enhance their length, which had been worn down by excessive stress-related grinding.

Robiha Nazir the hygienist, is brilliant. I’m a nervous patient & she completely put me at ease, the cleaning session can almost be... described as relaxing, definitely not painful at all. The small touches of putting a lip balm on my lips before she starts work makes such a difference to the experience, no sore cracked lips! She’s extremely knowledgeable & gave me excellent tips & techniques on general dental care.read more

I chipped my front tooth around 10 years ago. Always had it done via dentists who did not care about how my smile looked but instead just... to repaired the chipped section. I was never happy with my smile or gum line, always being extremely self conscious of smiling for photos/being up closer to people around me. I had a couple of other consultations before Italo with other dentists. One whom said a veneer would be the solution, however, I was adamant that this was not necessary. The first consultation with Italo and the team put my mind at ease and their friendly manner made the whole process a simple and stress free one. They explained every possible detail which is what I wanted, Italo was very reassuring, understanding of my insecurity and had the best possible solution. I was extremely excited to see the change in my smile! After my consultation, 2 weeks later I had my appointment. I was nervous but throughout Italo kept me involved in what was taking place. After correcting my front two teeth to be identical and contouring my gums. I must say I could not be happier with my smile!! It has given me extra confidence in every day life. For any dental work, I will be returning and I continue to recommend Italo and the team to everyone I know!! Thank you again! *photo taken straight after appointment.read more

I accidentally chipped a tooth during the night, woke up in a panic! Was able to book an emergency appointment to have this rectified... within a couple of hours. The location is excellent, right by Sloane Square. The dental practice itself is very smart, clean and friendly. My dentist was Annie, and I highly recommend her. She couldn’t be nicer and her professionalism, depth of knowledge and expertise is outstanding. You’re sure to come out with a wonderful smile when you come here! I highly recommend this practice.read more
