Composite bonding! What is composite bonding in dentistry?

Composite bonding, also known as composite veneer or dental bonding or tooth bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure that works by applying a thin layer of tooth coloured dental resin composite on the teeth. It aims to change the shape, size, colour of the teeth in addition to correction of minor teeth misalignment. It offers a simple and cost effective solution for closing gaps, teeth discolouration, increasing the teeth length and width and to improve smile.


Composite bonding is a non-invasive and almost fully reversible dental treatment for a nicer smile. It avoids the need for tooth drilling or having dental injections. Consequently, dental bonding, in combination with tooth whitening which is another form of non –invasive form of dental cosmetic treatment, has become the treatment of choice in London and the UK for enhancing one’s smile.

At Bayswater Dental Clinic, we have an experienced team of cosmetic dentists with more than 20 years of experience in composite bondings. Having treated 1000s of patients with very high quality of composite bondings, we have been delivering beautiful smiles to our satisfied happy patients for years, many of whom simply refer to us as magicians! A high quality dental bonding is one that not only it makes the teeth to appear nicer, but it also follows the dental rules to avoid damage to the health of teeth and the gum.

Composite Bonding is used in a variety of situations to
improve teeth appearance

Dental bondings can be the ideal treatment choice in a variety of situations;
  • Covering up cracks.
  • Repairing chipped teeth.
  • Increase the length of shortened teeth due to wear and tear or trauma, also known as edge bonding.
  • Close gaps and spaces between the teeth.
  • Reduce the Black Triangles: when there is gum recession resulting in space developing between the teeth close to the gum level. Common in people with periodontal conditions or other gum issues.
  • Improving or brightening discoloured teeth, usually seen in teeth that has had root canal treatment or discoloured due to trauma or Tetracycline staining.
  • Improving minor misalignment in teeth, to make teeth appear straighter.

Who is suitable for composite bonding?

Any person that has healthy teeth and gum can consider having composite bonding to improve their smile. It can be for a variety of situations such as closing gaps, covering cracks, making teeth longer and bigger, correcting discolouration and improving the alignment of the teeth. There are no age limits for any person that wish to have them.

Limitation would be when teeth positions and misalignment compromises the outcome and final result. If there is substantial overlapping of the teeth due to crowding or cross bite, or if the oral health of the teeth and the gum are not satisfactory, the result may not be as good as it otherwise would be. In these situations some prior treatments may be needed such as a hygiene visit, fillings or orthodontic treatment if there is substantial teeth misalignment.

What is composite bonding cost?
What are the prices on composite bonding in London and the UK?

Dental clinics across the UK and London set up their own composite bonding prices and there can be substantial differences between them. The prices can vary from as low as £150 or so and can increase up to £600 per tooth, although sometimes the cost can be even higher but very rarely less than the lower range.

Some of the factors that can affect the price can be listed as:
  • Experience of the cosmetic dentist and their credentials.
  • Number of the composite bondings to be done.
  • Laboratory costs such as designing a trial smile.
  • Existing condition of the teeth and the gum.
  • Whether additional cosmetic treatments are to be done like whitening or laser gum contouring.

Who can do composite veneers? Can any dentist do composite bonding?

Theoretically, any dentist can do composite bonding as the principal for composite resin material adhesion to the teeth are taught at dental school level when white fillings are taught and they are the same. But not every dentist can do cosmetic teeth bonding as many factors need to be considered, some of which can be listed as:

  • The overall facial impact of the teeth bonding and changes in appearance it causes.
  • The impact on the size of the teeth and its effect on gum health and lip support.
  • Planning the treatment in a way that zero tooth removal is needed with no injections.
  • Planning the functionality of the teeth and correct assessment of bite to minimise risk of chipping and breaking of composite veneers.
  • Using suitable polishing techniques to reduce the risk of staining, in particular in between the teeth where access is very limited for polishing.

Our experienced team of cosmetic dentists with more than 20 years of experience and having completed 1000s of teeth bonding, we have developed our own unique and exclusive techniques that allow composite veneers to appear as beautiful as porcelain veneers with minimal staining properties and just as long lasting. One of the best aesthetic properties of our composite bonding is their natural looking appearance, even when the teeth are partially covered. One cannot see the difference between the natural tooth and our composite bonding. You can get top quality and aesthetic composite bonding at very reasonable and affordable mid-range prices at Bayswater Dental Clinic. Our prof is the number of patients that got beautiful smiles with teeth bonding that not only last well beyond the expected time, but they still look as beautiful as the first day they were done years later.

How is composite bonding done?

What happens before the actual teeth bonding appointment?


In a consultation, patient requests and their expectations are listened to and noted. Patient will be asked about their history of dental attendance. Before considering any cosmetic dentistry, patients must have seen their own dentist regularly to ensure teeth and gum are healthy.

Then the dentist checks:
  • The health status of the teeth and the gum to ensure it is satisfactory. There should be no defects or cavities in the teeth. The gum MUST be free from bleeding and gingivitis. Patients suffering from periodontal disease, their condition MUST be under control and stable.
  • Teeth position, gum position and the chewing function of the teeth are noted to see if they can accommodate the patient’s expectations for a nicer smile. In some occasions the teeth position, like in cross bite, or if there is very large gaps between the teeth, or if the teeth are very misaligned with substantial overlapping as in some crowding cases, composite bondings as the first choice of treatment may not be suitable. In these cases orthodontic treatment like Removable Invisible Braces or Fixed Invisible Braces may be advantages. Although in some cases still may need dental bonding after orthodontic treatment is finished to change the shape of the teeth for a nicer smile.
  • If teeth are suitable for bonding straightaway, any recommended treatment such as hygiene visit, tooth whitening, or if needed, laser gum contouring treatments are completed.

Composite Bonding appointment

When teeth are ready to have the composite bondings done:

First, the colour of the composite resin to be used is chosen. At this stage different colours are checked by adding a small amount onto the tooth and checking how closely it matches the colour of the teeth. Needless to say that at this stage, patients checks the suggested options and decides which colour they prefer.

Teeth preparation. Surface of the teeth are cleaned, followed by application of an etching agent. After washing off the etching agent, teeth are properly dried and the conditioning liquid is applied and cured with a Blue light. This enhances the bonding process of the resin composite to the surface of the teeth, hence the name “composite bonding”.

Next step is to add the composite resin material which is of a putty consistency and the dentist starts to shape, mould and smoothen it to the desirable shape. This is the stage that the higher the skill and experience of the dentist, the better the outcome. The material is then hardened by application of a UV light. In some cases the composite veneer is premade or moulded and then in a similar process is attached to the tooth.

The final step is to make the finer adjustments and tweaks to finalise the shape, making sure patient is happy with them. Also their function is checked and they are checked to identify any possible inference with bite and accordingly adjusted to avoid damaging them and chipping. This is followed by final smoothening and polishing. The procedure can take 30-45 minutes per tooth.

  • Before
  • Immediate after composite bonding on top front 10teeth + teeth whitening on bottom teeth.
  • About 4 years later straight after polishing them.

Is composite boding painful to do? Is composite bonding natural looking?

Placement of composite bonding is not a painful procedure and very rarely dental injections are needed. One of the most important aspects of composite bonding is that it is not an invasive procedure, meaning very rarely there is a need for tooth drilling. As no tooth removal is needed, we do not enter the very sensitive parts of the teeth that would require dental numbing.

In the hands of an experienced cosmetic dentist, such as our team at Bayswater Dental Clinic, in majority of the times it would be very difficult, if not impossible, for people to realise that someone has had this cosmetic procedure done. Combination of experience, skills and right type of resin materials, can make the dental bonding to look incredibly natural looking.

What is composite bonding after care?

If done correctly, the maintenance of composite bonding is fairly simple;

  • As in with natural teeth, always good oral hygiene is needed. So regular hygienist visits are necessary.
  • If the margins of the teeth bonding near the gum are too bulky and not smooth enough, they will cause the unsightly redness of the gum due to plaque retention and must be kept clean, if possible. This problem is very common when bondings are not done skilfully. Even when flushed with tooth, composite must be very polished near the gum to avoid plaque and bacteria depositing there.
  • The more coloured foot and drinks taken, the higher the risk of getting stains.
  • If a grinder or bruxist, one must use night guard as otherwise the bondings can be chipped and damaged regularly.
  • It is advisable to avoid biting into hard food and chewing nails. Cut hard food and eat it.

The good news is that if a dental bonding is damaged, it is fairly cheap and quick to repair it.

How long do composite bonding last?

Going through information available on internet, one can easily see a large variation in the number of years quoted for longevity of teeth bonding. What is certain is that no dental restoration last for ever and it is said, on average, dental bondings are expected to last between 3-5 years. In real life, we have seen the composite bondings done in our clinic not only to last well over 5 years, but they also maintain their good condition and appearance. Needless to say this is conditional to our patients follow our instruction on how to maintain them, given to them at the bonding appointment.

What is teeth edge bonding? Is it different to composite bonding?

Composite edge bonding is a phrase that some dental professionals have started to use for the same procedure as dental bonding. The difference is that this group of dentist are specifying where composite will be added to teeth and that is the edge or tips of the teeth only, hence the name “edge bonding”.

In effect, edge bonding is the same procedure as composite veneers and the only difference may be that in composite veneer the whole surface of a tooth can be covered where as in edge bonding, resin material only is added to the incisal tips of the teeth. This is mostly when teeth are shortened due to wear and tear, teeth grinding (known as bruxism), broken teeth in trauma or due the function of the teeth.

Contrary to what is commonly thought, edge bonding technically is more difficult to do than composite bonding and it requires more skills to get it right. This is because masking the line where composite joins the natural tooth requires a lot of skill and knowledge if you want to avoid noticing it. Understanding the composites resin properties, technical ability and understanding how light transfers through different materials are essential to do edge bonding for achieving a very natural look.
