Composite Bonding in London from £24.58 PM

If you’re wondering, “What is composite bonding?” Then, allow us to introduce you to an inexpensive treatment that dramatically improves gaps and uneven teeth.

Referred to as tooth or bonding, composite bonding offers a non-invasive solution for minor tooth damage like breaks, chips and gaps and can alter the tooth’s size and shape. 

So, if you want a fuller-looking, straighter smile, it’s possible to achieve it with composite bonding – and cheap, immediate composite veneers.

One of the most inexpensive cosmetic treatments, patients will be amazed at how well composite bonding can improve the look of the smile without damaging the tooth, permanently altering its structure, or using drills or invasive techniques.

Composite bonding differs because it’s sculpted directly to the tooth in layers to restore or change the tooth’s original appearance. As the colour of the resin is made to match your teeth, the treatment blends flawlessly with the rest of the smile.

Benefits of composite bonding

  • Fast and effective makeover
  • Minor issues fixed in 1 hour
  • Non-invasive and reversible 
  • Alternative for veneers
  • Tooth structure remains intact

Limits of composite bonding

  • More susceptible to staining
  • Easier to chip than porcelain
  • It lasts 5-10 years
  • Requires occasional touch-ups
  • Not recommended for entire smile

What composite bonding treats:

  • Chipped and broken teeth
  • Decayed or bad teeth
  • Gaps between teeth (diastema)
  • Black triangular pockets
  • Discoloured, yellow or dark teeth

What else composite bonding can do:

  • Correct tooth shape
  • Alters tooth size
  • Restores worn teeth
  • Corrects slight misalignment
  • Repair chips or breaks

A full smile makeover using composite veneers

Composite bonding can be used to treat one or a few teeth, but if you opt for composite veneers, you can fully correct the full aesthetics of the smile. 

So, if affording conventional, porcelain veneers is difficult for you, then composite veneers might be your chance to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Whilst they do not last as long as porcelain veneers, the composite option has other benefits, like walking out of the clinic the same day with a brand new, even smile. 

From just £350 per tooth, patients looking to improve six to eight teeth can do so for a total of £2,100-£2,800 or £175 per month using 0% finance over 12 months.

Before and after Bonding

Costing from £295

Like veneers, composite bonding is used to rebuild the smile and correct issues caused by chips, breaks and gaps and is commonly used on a few visible teeth to make the mouth more even.

The composite bonding procedure

First, we’ll begin by choosing a resin colour that matches your tooth best so that the resin blends flawlessly with your existing teeth. 

However, if you’re having a smile makeover, we can improve the colour of your teeth either by applying tooth whitening first or using composite veneers for the entire smile.

We’ll roughen the tooth’s surface slightly – but this is nothing compared to the preparation required for conventional veneer or crown treatment. We will then coat the tooth with a liquid that helps the resin adhere smoothly. 

We’ll then apply and mould the resin into your required shape before hardening with a curing light. To finalise the treatment, we’ll then polish the treated teeth until they perfectly match.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.
