About this treatment

Depending on your needs, composite bonding can be used for minor modifications, as well as more complicated tooth reconstructions – making it suitable for both trauma and cosmetic purposes. As with all of our treatments, we will begin with a thorough initial consultation to give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and understand the process from start to finish.

During your consultation with our team, we will discuss every aspect of the treatment, including available options and costs.

Key points of composite bonding in Durham

    Providing you have a healthy mouth that can accommodate treatment, your Durham dentist will help you through the entire treatment process. They will choose a resin which best matches the natural colour of your teeth before applying the resin (bonding) and ensuring it is polished until it blends seamlessly with the rest of the tooth/teeth.

    Unlike crowns or veneers, none of your tooth needs to be removed, making composite bonding a minimally invasive solution. It can also usually be carried out by your Durham dentist in just one treatment appointment and is a fast and effective way to address both minor and more complex issues. This makes it suitable for those who have suffered trauma or those who have some cosmetic requirements.

    Caring for your composite bonding effectively will determine its longevity. With good care, composite bonding can last between 5-7 years. Yearly repolishing and regular visits to your Durham Smile Clinic dentist and hygienist will help to keep it looking fresh, and deal with any staining that may build up around the edges. It is important to remember that composite bonding isn’t quite as strong as a natural tooth, so employ caution when eating or chewing anything hard.
