WHAT IS COMPOSITE BONDING?
Composite bonding is a non-invasive treatment used to correct a range of minor imperfections on the teeth. Most commonly, composite bonding is a treatment for chipped teeth, irregular teeth correction, tooth gaps, or discolouration.
Composite bonding can offer excellent aesthetic results and is a shorter term solution than other aesthetic options such as porcelain veneers. Whether it is the right choice for you also depends on the current situation of your teeth.
Taylor Street Dental use the state of the art Digital Smile Design technology to ensure your composite bonding is delivered with precision and efficiency to optimise your smile.
To match your natural teeth we keep on hand a variety of shades to ensure we can deliver beautiful results that look and feel right for you.
HOW DOES COMPOSITE BONDING WORK?
A composite resin is delicately affixed to the tooth’s enamel and shaped to restore the tooth’s original appearance or achieve the desired corrections. The colour of the resin is seamlessly matched to your natural teeth, ensuring the bonding appears as though it is part of the tooth.
A curing light is applied to the enamel allowing the practitioner to shape and mould this to your tooth. This hardens the composite resin, setting this into place. Once the process is complete, the composite resin is indistinguishable from the natural tooth enamel, making composite bonding a discreet and non-invasive choice for those looking to correct small imperfections in their teeth.
BENEFITS OF COMPOSITE BONDING
- Non-invasive: This doesn’t require patients to have injections or invasive procedures such as tooth drilling.
- Quick and Easy: The majority of treatment plans can be completed in just one session.
- No Moulds: There is no requirement for uncomfortable processes such as tooth impressions or moulds.
- Versatile: Suitable for a range of patients with healthy overall gums and teeth.
- Affordable: While it will require replacement, it is a good starting point for a brand new smile.

How Long Do The Results of Composite Bonding Typically Last?
Composite bonding is a long-lasting cosmetic dental solution. The results of composite bonding can typically last for several years with proper care. The composite resin material used in bonding is durable and resistant to wear and staining. However, it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene and avoid habits like biting on hard objects to ensure the longevity of your bonding results.
Composite Bonding Cost
The cost of composite bonding can vary depending on several factors, including the number of teeth being treated and the complexity of the case. It’s an affordable alternative to more extensive cosmetic procedures like veneers and crowns. To get an accurate estimate of the cost of composite bonding for your specific needs, we recommend scheduling a consultation with us at Taylor Street Dental.
Composite Bonding FAQ’s
Composite bonding is a semi-permanent cosmetic dental procedure. While it offers long-lasting results, it may need maintenance or replacement over time. The composite resin used in bonding is durable but can wear down or become discoloured over several years. However, it’s a minimally invasive procedure, and any necessary touch-ups can typically be done without significant changes to your natural teeth.
In some cases, composite bonding can be an alternative to braces for minor cosmetic issues, such as fixing small gaps between teeth or correcting minor misalignments. However, bonding is not suitable for more complex orthodontic issues. To determine if dental bonding is a suitable alternative for your specific dental concerns, it’s best to consult with our experienced team at Taylor Street Dental.
Yes, you can eat after getting your teeth bonded. Composite bonding is a non-invasive procedure that does not require any downtime or special dietary restrictions. However, it’s essential to be mindful of your oral hygiene and avoid biting on extremely hard objects to prevent damage to the bonded teeth.
Stains on bonded teeth can typically be removed through professional dental cleaning and polishing during your regular dental check-ups. Our team at Taylor Street Dental can provide comprehensive cleaning and maintenance to keep your bonded teeth looking their best.
