What is composite bonding?
Composite bonding before and after images. Composite bonding, also known as dental bonding, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin is used to improve the appearance of a tooth that may be discoloured, chipped or broken. Bonding can also be used to close gaps between upper front teeth and lower front teeth, or change the shape or colour of teeth. Bonding does not require the removal of tooth structure, and can usually be completed in one visit. The bonding is applied to your own natural teeth and hardened with a special light. Bonding is your teeth, made better.
The colour of the bonding used generally matches the shade of your current natural teeth, but is agreed by all parties during the treatment process. It is not possible to whiten composite bonding once applied using a teeth whitening process.

Who is suitable for bonding?
Anyone with discoloured, chipped, broken or gappy teeth can get composite bonding dependent on certain suitability criteria which is discussed in your free consultation with our dentist. Bonding is a great alternative to rejuvenate your smile quickly. Bonding can improve the appearance of your teeth and make them look longer, fuller, and more symmetrical. It can also be used to close gaps between teeth and to make stained or discolored teeth look brighter.
How long does bonding last?
The results of bonding are not permanent, and the bonded teeth will eventually need to be redone. However, with proper care and hygiene, bonding can last for several years.
How much is composite bonding?
The cost of bonding varies depending on the number of teeth that are being treated and the complexity of the procedure. In general, the cost of bonding ranges from €150 per chipped tooth to €250 per full tooth.

Advantages of composite bonding
Composite bonding is a type of dental bonding in which a putty-like resin is used to bond materials to the teeth. This type of bonding is often used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, as well as to improve the appearance of teeth that are stained or discolored. Bonding can also be used to replace metal fillings and to create veneers and crowns.
