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.

I have been going to St Helier Dental Surgery for a few years now and my experience has always been a positive one. All the staff are friendly and professional. I recently had the boutique whitening treatment done with Dr Zena and she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. She genuinely cared for me as a person which put me at ease throughout the treatment. It was very uplifting to see how excited she was for the success of my treatment. It is also reassuring to see how the surgery is following government guidelines when it comes to the Covid-19 pandemic. I highly recommend this dental surgery.
