From Minor Repairs to Smile Enhancement

It could be a somewhat small treatment, like repairing a single chipped tooth, or something more significant, like enhancing the size and symmetry of your smile.

During the dental procedure, a skilled cosmetic dentist will complete an examination and discussion with you, in which they will understand what you want to accomplish with your smile. We offer comprehensive composite bonding treatments at our dental clinic in Wandsworth, London.

The composite materials are then applied to your teeth, and you will have a stunning new smile when the treatment is complete!

Direct Dental Composite bonding involves three quick and easy steps to help patients achieve the perfect smile:

  • Preparation of the tooth: This consists in getting the colour to match the hue of your teeth so that it seems completely natural.
  • Application and shaping of the composite resin; Our dentist will start by cleaning the tooth’s surface and applying a bonding agent. Next, the resin will be added, and we will mould the tooth structure into the desired shape.
  • UV hardening of the composite: This causes the composite to cure and become solid.

Composite Bonding FAQ

This is determined by how well you care for your teeth and general oral health and oral hygiene. Generally, you can expect between three and seven years, but the actual amount of time can vary depending on multiple factors. Grinding your teeth, biting your nails, or eating hard foods can cause chips in your teeth.

When you have a composite bonding, your general dentistry treatments are as usual. You should schedule a maintenance appointment every six months to check your dental health, and the dentist can take a look at your composite bonding, which can then be polished and repaired if necessary.

Bonding methods typically have a lifespan between three and seven years, comparable to white filling material. During the periodic checks that our team performs, they will check to ensure that these composite coatings are intact.

We advise patients to have a good standard of oral hygiene, good oral health in general and a course of teeth whitening treatment prior to composite bonding. Teeth whitening before bonding ensures that the colour of your teeth is bright and clean so that the bonding can be matched perfectly to your natural colour. We offer a number of teeth whitening treatments, and our dentists will be able to discuss the best teeth whitening for you.

If it is not food or drink, you should not put it in your mouth, even if you don’t have composite bonding. It is a good rule of thumb, regardless of your dental situation. It is best to refrain from using your teeth to tear open containers and packets to avoid broken teeth!

Red wine, coffee, curry turmeric, and tea are all foods and drinks that can stain the composite material, just like they stain your natural teeth. If you have discoloured teeth please speak to a dentist about teeth whitening. It is important not to bite your fingernails or chew on pens, and you should also steer clear of foods like nuts and bones that are exceptionally hard since these can speed up the wear and tear on your teeth and composite. You may need more frequent dental appointments with the hygienist to have your teeth checked and the composite polished.

They are comparable to one another. However, a composite veneer covers the entirety of the tooth surface, while bonding only covers the margins and a portion of the tooth’s front surface to improve the appearance and close gaps.

Before composite bonding can occur, it is in the patient’s best interest to have teeth that are correctly aligned. If they are not straight, the composite will be thicker in some regions and thinner in others, preventing you from achieving the highest possible level of functionality and aesthetics; there are many individual elements to enhance your teeth through composite bonding; all you need is to visit an excellent dentist to get an excellent smile.

Although you shouldn’t experience discomfort, you could feel pressure on the tooth during the procedure. There is often no need for anaesthetic, patients are conscious, and you will find our team helpful throughout the whole process.

Most of the time, the process can be done in one visit; the length of the visit will be determined by the number of teeth being treated during the appointment, but it can range in the region of 30 minutes to a few hours.

We are always honest with our patients, and we will advise you of any dangers, side effects, or downsides that may be associated with any of our treatments. Composite bonding is typically a non-invasive treatment, and we work on teeth that can be easily repaired. This treatment is not considered an oral surgery or significant treatment such as dealing with dental implants or wisdom teeth removal.

Your newly bonded composite tooth may be more prone to discolouration than your natural teeth, so it is vital to pay close attention to your diet and lifestyle and make an effort to minimise the consumption of foods and beverages that could potentially stain your teeth (such as drinking red wine or smoking). It is also crucial to remember that the composite can chip or break in the same way a natural tooth might. It could happen due to habits such as chewing hard things or eating hard sweets, or it could result from an accident such as participating in a contact sport.

You can arrange an appointment in our dental clinic, Wandsworth, London, and we will evaluate your smile and discuss a treatment plan. The cracks and chips in your teeth may necessitate an alternative treatment, such as a crown or porcelain veneers.

The philosophy behind our dental practice is to preserve and improve the appearance of your natural teeth wherever it is clinically feasible, if it’s broken we will try to fix it, before we remove it! Composite bonding may not be recommended if you already have a cavity in the tooth that needs to be treated. At Direct Dental, we will collaborate with you to create a treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements after assessing your oral health and medical history to maintain your oral health.

Composite bonding doesn’t make it harder to take care of your teeth, but as mentioned, habits like chewing on ice, pens, nails, or hard sweets could damage the material and change your results.

Composite may be slightly more plaque retentive that natural tooth so its important you keep up your excellent oral hygiene.

It is necessary to keep brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily for two minutes each and closely check the dietary and lifestyle factors that contribute to tooth discolouration.
