When cosmetic bonding patients come into our dental practice, they often have lots of questions for us about the process and what to expect. It can be useful to know more before you arrive to help alleviate your concerns and give you food for thought about some of the options available to you. Read on to find out more about composite bonding.

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?
If you have chipped or broken teeth, one of the best solutions is cosmetic bonding. It gets its name from the tooth-coloured composite resin used for the procedure, which is skilfully bonded to the teeth in the desired shape. This acts to lengthen, widen or alter the appearance of particular teeth to help create the perfect smile. It’s one of the most revolutionary treatments in the cosmetic dentistry industry, thanks to its minimally invasive procedure.

Who Is Bonding Suitable For?
Cosmetic bonding is one of the most versatile treatments, used for a wide variety of different dental situations. This includes:


If you think you may be suitable for bonding, get in touch to arrange an assessment with our dental team.

Should I Have the Treatment on Its Own?
Dental bonding can be used as a standalone treatment to repair minor damage such as small chips. However, you could also undergo bonding as part of an overall smile makeover. This could include teeth whitening to change their colour before the procedure, treating any tooth decay or gum disease you have before continuing and also looking at how to improve your bite. Some people even choose bonding to test the cosmetic look before replacing the resin with porcelain veneers or crowns.

What Is Smile Design?
At 360 Dental Care, we’re smile design experts, helping our Manchester patients find the right cosmetic dentistry solutions for them. We perform an in-depth assessment (which may include x-rays) to ensure we have a full picture of the health of your teeth and gums, and we’ll also talk to you about how you’d like to transform your existing smile.

We may need to address other issues before you can have a cosmetic dental treatment, such as gum disease or extensive tooth decay, but this is something we’ll discuss after a thorough assessment.

We always put your health first and only recommend treatments we feel you could benefit from, helping you to achieve and maintain your perfect smile.

Smile design software is a fantastic part of our services, helping our patients to visualise what their new teeth will look like in reality. This will help you to make an informed choice about your dental treatment plan.

What Are the Benefits of Choosing Dental Bonding?
When you come in for a consultation, we’ll talk you through the benefits of whichever treatment we think could be the right option for you. Luckily, there are lots of advantages of cosmetic bonding procedures, including:

  • No tooth reduction techniques are required before the treatment.
  • The procedure is completed in just one visit, making it a fast solution for those with minor issues.
  • We match the colour to the natural teeth so that the resin blends in seamlessly. That’s why many people opt for tooth whitening treatments before they start.
  • The results are easy to repair if anything happens and simple to care for. Your dentist will take you through the aftercare advice.
  • This cosmetic dentistry solution is highly economical, keeping costs down if that’s a key factor in which dental treatment you choose.

What Happens During the Bonding Process?
Cosmetic bonding is one of the most flexible treatments available, but it can be daunting when undergoing any type of dental procedure. The process is actually quite simple, so some of the treatment steps to be aware of include:

  • Ensuring the teeth are clean before the procedure begins
  • Colour matching the composite resin to your teeth (you may want whitening first)
  • Preparing the teeth by ensuring the surface is roughened slightly and applying a conditioning liquid
  • Carefully apply the bonding resin to the teeth and sculpting as needed
  • Applying a UV light to the teeth to ensure the resin sets
  • Adding further resin layers if there’s any more work required
  • Smoothing the resin and polishing your new teeth to help them look and feel natural

How Many Years Does Tooth Bonding Last for?
How long dental bonding lasts will depend on a variety of factors, including whether you grind your teeth, your diet and lifestyle, as well as how well you care for your teeth. While five to eight years is often quoted for how long bonding lasts, it can be much longer than this with the right care. To increase the chances of success:

  • Ensure you maintain your oral hygiene programme as advised by your dentist and hygienist.
  • Visit our dental practice as soon as possible if you get any issues.
  • Attend your regular check-ups and appointments as scheduled.
  • Explore tooth grinding solutions (e.g. bite guards) with your dentist if this is a problem for you.
  • Eat a healthy, low sugar diet.

Can Composite Bonding Stain?
Yes! Dental bonding can stain just like your natural teeth will if you don’t care for them. Many people eat and drink a lot of items which could increase these issues, such as coffee and wine. As well as maintaining your dental hygiene, as part of bonding aftercare, you should avoid any food or drink that could stain the composite resin material in the first 48 hours post-treatment.

Can the Resin Be Fixed If Damaged?
Yes! If your teeth go through wear and tear or trauma, affecting the quality or look of the bonding treatment, it can be easily repaired. This requires you to go through a similar process to the original procedure, but your dentist will just apply some more resin layers to reshape the affected teeth.

Is the Treatment Pain Free?
Cosmetic bonding can be much more comfortable than many other treatments thanks to the non-invasive nature of the procedure. Your teeth won’t need reducing, it doesn’t require a bone graft, and everything is performed in a single visit.

How Much Does Bonding Cost?
Bonding is one of the most economical treatments to choose if you only have minor work needed to help you achieve the ideal smile. This could be a for a few chips or getting your teeth to the right length. It’s hard to put an exact figure on the cost of composite bonding treatments, so we’d urge you to book a consultation to find out more if this is something you’d like to explore.

Once we’ve assessed the affected teeth and see how extensive the work is, we’ll be able to give you a quote for treatment costs. You may also want to consider a smile makeover, to include other treatments such as tooth whitening. In these case, any additional treatments will need to be factored into your budget, as bonding isn’t an option on the NHS.
