What Problems Can Composite Bonding Help With?

The wonders of this teeth bonding treatment are endless, but here are some of the ways Smile Stories can help you with composite bonding:

  • Shape finessing — composite bonding can be used to make your teeth larger, squarer, longer or more rounded.
  • Close the gap — composite bonding is a fantastic way to close any unwanted spaces in your smile.
  • Fix the chip — we can use composite bonding to fix any chips or breaks in your teeth.
  • Whiter and brighter — if teeth whitening isn’t an option for you, composite bonding is a great way to improve the colour of dull or discoloured teeth.

If you still aren’t sure whether dental bonding is suitable for you, why not check out our dental transformations and follow the smile stories of more people like you.

Benefits of Composite Bonding

Here are a few of the fantastic benefits of composite bonding and why it could be an excellent option for you:

  • Same-day Smile Makeover — the treatment is normally complete in just one single appointment! Is there a special event creeping up in the diary? This could be the perfect solution to get you camera-ready.
  • No drilling or injections — one of the great things about composite bonding is there’s no need for any drills or anaesthesia, meaning you can go about your normal day straight after your visit.
  • Your teeth stay protected — this is a non-invasive treatment, which means you need very little preparation for your natural teeth. To make room for the composite material, we aim to remove minimal amounts (if any) of your existing tooth enamel.

Which Dental Treatment Is Right for You?

Edge Bonding

This is where we add composite only to the edges. It is perfect to increase the teeth’ size or shape, close up spaces, fix chips and lengthen them.

But your teeth need to be straight to do this.

If they’re crooked, you may need Invisalign or composite veneers.

Gap Closure Bonding

We select specific areas to add composite, sometimes worn grooves or those pesky in-betweeny triangles where gums might have receded over time.

With careful polishing and buffing, you’d barely know they ever existed.

Composite Veneers

We bond composite veneers to the whole front surface of your tooth to completely mask what’s underneath.

Think of it as a shellac nail. They can whiten, straighten, close up large spaces, reverse worn-looking teeth and even widen your smile.

Your Composite Bonding Questions Answered

Does composite bonding hurt?

Not at all.

We usually do it all in one appointment, without drilling or injections.

How can composite bonding help you?

  • A fuller, wider smile with more teeth on show at the back
  • To make your teeth more visible in photos
  • Improve the shape of your teeth
  • Make your teeth whiter, especially if teeth whitening hasn’t worked for you
  • Straighten your teeth if you have mild crowding
  • Replace silver fillings and make them invisible
  • Fix chips and fill them in
  • Close up the big space between your front teeth
  • Restore worn teeth if you’ve ground them down.

How do composite veneers compare with porcelain veneers?

  • It’s quicker and less expensive.
  • Usually, the teeth underneath are untouched.
  • Pain-free – rarely requires drilling or injections.
  • Composite veneers can be repaired and replaced with ease.

However, they don’t last as long and need more maintenance than porcelain veneers. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, and as long as you understand them, we’ll help you make the right choice for you.

How do I care for teeth after composite bonding?

After the bonding procedure, you need to care for your teeth as you would normally, cleaning them twice daily and flossing/using interdental brushes daily. Attend your regular health checks where our team can look after your bonding.

One disadvantage with teeth bonding is that smoking and chewing tobacco can cause staining. These stains are tough to remove and may even result in the dental bonding needing to be repeated. Drinking excessive tea and coffee, eating a lot of curries, red wine (sorry), and other dark liquids can also cause the dental bonding composite to stain. 

When eating with bonded front teeth, avoid chewing hard foods directly onto the composite areas as this can cause them to chip. Don’t chew pens or bite your nails, and stop opening bottles with your teeth!

How do we actually place the composite bonding?

What does the actual procedure involve during composite bonding in Bournemouth?

Cosmetic tooth bonding is where we “bond” white coloured resin material onto your teeth.

Composite is a plasticine-like putty in different shades, which we match to your teeth to create a perfect blend.

An essential point!

We always recommend teeth whitening first. Everyone wants whiter teeth, and if you choose to whiten after bonding, then the bonding doesn’t change colour.

We complete the procedure in five painless steps:

  1. Colour matching -We ensure the bonding material matches your tooth to get the perfect blend.
  2. Isolation – What?! We place a rubber sheet over the teeth we’re bonding. Dry bonding = the best bonding. It also means you get no unpleasant tastes in your mouth.
  3. Shampoo and condition – We’re getting ready!
  4. The arty bit – We hand-sculpt the ‘composite’ material, and when it looks perfect, we then set it with a blue light to harden it. You have your tooth back.
  5. Polishing – We make it look natural and completely blend in with your teeth. Nobody will ever know.

Voila!

How long does dental bonding last?

After composite dental bonding in Bournemouth, the composite material will typically last 3-7 years. Then it may need topping up or replacing. At Smile Stories, we only use the gold standard procedure, and all of our work is guaranteed after the procedure.

How long does cosmetic dental bonding last?

After composite bonding in Bournemouth, the composite material will typically last 5-7 years. After this time, it’ll need complete replacement. It’s heavily dependent on how well you look after it at home, and regular professional hygiene visits are essential.

I’ve had composite bonding – why does my tooth feel strange?

This is normal, don’t worry about it. It’ll take a few days for everything to settle in and the composite to feel part of your body again.

What are our composite bonding fees?

Composite edge bonding in Bournemouth is £175 per tooth. Composite veneers start at £275 per tooth.

What are the alternatives to dental bonding?

Your teeth may be more suited to crowns or veneers rather than composite bonding. Everyone is unique so contact us if you need tailored advice.

Which composite do you use?

We use an array of top-quality composite products. These are matched to the colour of your teeth and artistically hand-crafted to match the colour and texture.

Our dentists love G-aenial and Empress Direct.

Will my teeth be sensitive after composite bonding?

Unlikely. Teeth aren’t usually sensitive after the cosmetic dental bonding procedure. This is nothing to worry about and will likely settle down after a few days.
