For teeth with minor crowding or mild discolouration/chips, then composite bonding is an excellent option. Composite resin is an advanced tooth-coloured filling material and we use an aesthetic range for the front teeth. This means that minor alterations can be simply done and completed quickly and painlessly, and look great.
Composite bonding is a cosmetic procedure used in dentistry and it is an effective method we use at The Dentist to remedy minor defects, edge bonding, composite veneers, bonding after orthodontic treatment to enhance the final outcome with your teeth.
- Preserves remaining tooth structure
- Long-term aesthetic and functional solution
- Natural-looking restoration
For composite bonding, edge bonding and composite veneers, at TheDentist we will place advanced composite resin over teeth, reshaping the resin before polishing it to match the rest of your teeth. This is more of an aesthetic procedure.
Using digital technologies we can mock up your new smile, and create your new smile with composite bonding, whether using edge bonding or composite veneers.
Composite bonding can also prevent further damage to a chipped or cracked tooth while improving the appearance of the tooth.
The benefit over porcelain veneers
- Completed in a single visit
- More cost effective
- Easy to repair compared to porcelain veneers
(You must be aware that ongoing maintenance of composite veneers may include but not limited to regular repolishing, and resurfacing. Please ask your dentist for more information on this)

There are many factors that can diminish your smile. You may have a chipped or broken tooth, or you may have stained teeth or too wide a gap between your teeth. These are considered minor flaws that may not require extensive dental work. Composite bonding is a relatively simple and painless procedure that can quickly and effectively correct misshapen, chipped or stained teeth and the composite resin can be tinted to match the rest of your tooth.
The process involved in composite bonding is simple and painless. First, your dentist will examine your teeth to make sure there are no underlying problems that may cause problems for you later. Depending on the state of the affected teeth, some preparation work may be needed. Once your teeth have been checked and readied, the dentist will carefully cover your teeth with a composite bonding resin. Once the resin sets, the restored tooth can be shaped and polished so that it looks and feels as perfect as the rest of your teeth. In most cases, your dentist can complete this procedure in about an hour, possibly less, depending on the size of the tooth and the damage it has sustained.
It’s not easy to predict how long composite bonding will last. Factors including the extent of the work completed and your oral hygiene habits will need to be taken into consideration. However, you can expect composite bonding to last for at least three years. With proper care and good oral hygiene, your composite bonding may last ten years or more. The Dentist’s practitioners are skilled at composite bonding and will advise you on the best way to care for your restored tooth. In particular, white wine, Prosecco and other white grape drinks can denature the surface of composite bonding, reducing the lifespan.
There are a number of benefits to having composite bonding done on your teeth. Firstly, it is a relatively painless procedure, which is a major consideration for many patients. It is also a quick, simple solution that looks completely natural and won’t damage the tooth’s natural structure. Composite bonding can usually be completed in a single visit to the dentist and, if you accidentally chip or crack the tooth that has been fixed, replacing the composite bonding is easy. This procedure is also a cost-effective way to treat minor dental problems.
