Direct Composite Bonding. This is simple, painless and reversible!

The guide:

What is bonding?

Simply, it is a technique used to stick tooth-coloured materials to teeth.

How does it work?

Bonding with a composite resin (white filling material) was introduced approximately 50 years ago. The tooth enamel is gently cleaned with a weak acidic gel to prepare the surface before the bonding agent is placed. The dentist will then apply tooth coloured composite resin material in small amounts over a stained, crooked, short, chipped, decayed or broken tooth. A special light is then used to harden and set the material. The material is then polished to perfection. Once complete, the material will look just like natural tooth enamel.

Why Bonding?


  Results in natural colour

  Predictable aesthetic and functional results

  No drilling of the tooth necessary and therefore no injection required.

  Most cases accomplished in one appointment.

  Reversible in most cases (Bonded composite veneers are reversible)

  No impressions need to be taken and no temporaries are required.

  Future treatment options are wide and varied in most cases.

  Failure is rare and very easy to fix. Can be done directly in the chair therefore reduces costs as cuts out the technicians involvement.

  Suitable for patients of all ages with optimal dental and periodontal (gum) health.

Ok, Show me what is possible?

We offer free cosmetic consultations. The dentist can simply pat some of the composite resin onto your teeth to give you an idea of how small adjustments can make a big difference!
