Composite Bonding

At St. Helier Dental Surgery, we offer routine composite bonding for individual teeth to more complex cosmetic bonding involving a smile makeover and teeth wear. 

What Is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is a popular solution to solve damage to the teeth or gaps in the teeth. For instance, chips, fractures or discolouration to the teeth. Our experienced team will use a composite resin to shape and attach this to the affected tooth or teeth and restore your smile. Although the resin is made to match the colour of your teeth, whitening treatment can be done in conjunction for a radiant smile. This is usually done first before composite bonding, so be sure to let us know what shade you prefer before undertaking the treatment.

What Does Composite Bonding Involve? 

Firstly, we will decide on a colour for the resin which is the closest match for your tooth, to ensure it remains natural in appearance. The surface will be roughened a little to coat with a liquid and the resin will be applied and moulded into the tooth shape. UV light is used to strengthen the composite bond and then the tooth will be shaped and polished completely. 

Benefits of Composite Bonding

Aside from only needing one visit at St. Helier’s, composite bonding is a quick and straightforward method to solving cosmetic issues. It uses UV light to strengthen the composite immediately upon application, therefore it will be fully functional for biting down and eating when you are done. Overall, the tooth remains intact and with the original structure, it will only need to be roughened to add the composite bond. There is less chance of more damage and is preferential amongst our customers if you’re on a budget. As long as you maintain good dental hygiene, the composite bond will last a long time. 

Looking After Your Teeth After Composite Bonding 

In order to ensure your teeth stay in good condition after treatment, especially if you are whitening your teeth alongside it, follow the guidance below:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day and having regular dental check ups. It is essential to make sure your composite bond stays clean without stains. 
  • Don’t eat or drink anything that may stain your teeth such as tea, coffee, vibrant fruits, carbonated drinks, sweets and so on. 
  • Try not to bite down on nails or other items as this can damage the bonds as they are not as strong as normal teeth. 

How Much Does Composite Bonding Cost?

With many years of experience in the team and over 40 years of combined clinical experience, Zena and Fatima will be able to assist with your cosmetic treatment. It can cost as little as £180 for simpler cosmetic bonding, more complex bonding that requires our Smile Fast treatment costs approximately £2000. St. Helier also offers 0% finance with a minimum of £500 spend.

The smiling reception is always professional and friendly and I was so pleased when my Dentist, Dr. Deval, took time to inform me of my choices which were best for me personally. A refreshing change. A smashing Dentist, Tuba and her lovely assistant Sanju have taken over from Dr Deval. Tuba, cares about her patients and works towards them keeping a healthy smile, she's a credit to the Dentist profession as is her assistant Sanju. She got rid of an abscess painlessly and on my next appointment she miraculously saved my tooth for which I am so grateful. Valentina and Sarah who work on the reception desk are always welcoming and very helpful. Many thanks to a great Dentist and her team. L Lambert.

I'm so grateful for all the effort and support during my two visits with Dr Tuba Pishgharavol at St Helier Dental Surgery in Morden. Dr Pishgharavol is really a professional, and at the same time showed her passion and commitment in very complicated a root canal treatment. However, all other staff is very polite, friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this dental practice to my friends.
