We’re Open!

In line with Government guidelines, we’re pleased to say that our practices are open again to care for you and your smiles.

We’ve been working hard to put extra safety measures and safety steps in place to keep you safe and have created an FAQ section to help answer the key questions you may have.

May we ask that you don’t visit your local practice in-person without a pre-arranged appointment first – it’s for everyone’s safety.

If you’re after some help and advice, we’ve created a series of guides on how to look after your oral health during COVID-19 which you can find in the Our COVID-19 Safety Charter.

Take care and stay safe.

Composite Bonding

What is composite bonding?

A composite resin is used to build a new surface on top of your existing tooth, whether to change the appearance of the tooth or to fill gaps. Unlike other cosmetic treatments, composite bonding does not require any changes to your teeth – everything can be done in one visit. The resin used will be colour-matched to your teeth to ensure a discrete result.

Is it the same as veneers?

Porcelain veneers involve trimming a small amount of enamel off your teeth so that the veneers can be fitted, whereas composite bonding does not. The composite resin is also a different material to the ceramic porcelain used in veneers.

Can I have composite bonding?

Composite bonding is suitable for most patients, but we recommend having a consultation with a dentist to find out what is right for you.

Does it hurt?

As there is no tooth preparation, composite bonding is not painful and does not require anaesthetic. However, nervous patients can talk to us about possible sedation during treatment.

How long does composite bonding last?

With proper care and hygiene, composites regularly last 3-5 years before they need replacing. We recommend replenishing your composites every 3 years to keep them looking natural and flawless.

How do I care for composites?

You need to keep your composites clean just like you would your teeth – brushing twice a day, flossing once, and minimizing consumption of stain-prone liquids like tea, coffee, and wine. Eating solid foods like hard sweets and ice cubes is not recommended, as these are much more likely to damage both your teeth and your composites.
