Versatile cosmetic dental procedure

A transformative solution for enhancing your smile with minimal invasiveness.

How it works

What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure where a tooth-coloured resin material is applied and sculpted onto the surface of the teeth to enhance their appearance. This versatile treatment can address various dental imperfections, such as:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Minor teeth misalignments

The resin material is carefully bonded to the tooth and then shaped and polished to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, creating a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing smile. Composite bonding is a minimally invasive and cost-effective option for improving the overall appearance of your teeth.

What's so good about it?

The Benefits


Minimally Invasive

Composite bonding requires minimal alteration of the natural tooth structure compared to other cosmetic procedures like veneers or crowns. This preserves more of your tooth's integrity and reduces the risk of sensitivity.


Composite bonding can address a wide range of cosmetic dental issues, including chipped, cracked, or discoloured teeth, as well as gaps between teeth and minor misalignments. It offers a versatile solution for enhancing your smile's appearance.

Natural Appearance

The composite resin used in bonding is colour-matched to your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend with your smile. With the ability to customise the shade and shape of the resin, your dentist can achieve highly natural-looking results.

Immediate Results

Unlike some dental procedures that require multiple appointments, composite bonding can often be completed in a single visit. This means you can enjoy an instantly improved smile with minimal time spent in the dental chair.


Composite bonding is typically more cost-effective than other cosmetic treatments like veneers or crowns. It offers an affordable option for patients seeking to enhance their smile without breaking the bank.


While composite bonding may not last as long as other restorative materials like porcelain veneers, it is still highly durable and can withstand normal biting and chewing forces with proper care. Regular dental check-ups can help ensure its longevity.

Common Questions

Questions? We've got Answers

How long does composite bonding last?

Composite bonding can last for several years with proper care. However, it may require touch-ups or replacement over time due to normal wear and tear.

Is composite bonding painful?

Composite bonding is a minimally invasive procedure and typically does not require anaesthesia. Patients may experience slight discomfort during the process, but it is generally well-tolerated.

Can composite bonding fix gaps between teeth?

Yes, composite bonding can effectively close gaps between teeth by applying the resin material to the sides of the teeth, creating a more uniform appearance.

Will composite bonding stain?

While composite bonding is resistant to staining, it may still become discoloured over time, especially if exposed to foods and drinks that can stain teeth. Maintaining good oral hygiene can help prevent staining.

Is composite bonding reversible?

Yes, composite bonding is reversible. If you’re unhappy with the results or want to explore other options in the future, the bonding material can be removed without causing damage to the teeth.

Can composite bonding fix crooked teeth?

Composite bonding can improve the appearance of mildly crooked teeth by reshaping and contouring them. However, for more severe misalignments, orthodontic treatment may be necessary.

How is composite bonding different from veneers?

Composite bonding involves applying a tooth-coloured resin directly to the teeth, while veneers are thin shells that are custom-made and bonded to the front surface of the teeth. Veneers typically require more extensive preparation and are more durable.

How should I care for my teeth after composite bonding?

To maintain the longevity of composite bonding, it’s essential to practice good oral hygiene, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups. Avoiding habits like biting on hard objects or chewing ice can also help prevent damage to the bonding material.
