Composite bonding (also known as composite veneers or dental bonding) offers an aesthetic solution for minor damage or gaps in teeth. When carried out as a cosmetic treatment, it is not available on the NHS but there are plenty dental clinics which offer cosmetic composite bonding as a private service.

Bonding is usually used for filling chips, fractures or gaps between teeth, or for fixing discoloration. A composite resin is attached to a tooth and shaped to restore its original appearance. The colour of the resin is matched to your teeth, so it will appear as though it is a natural part of the tooth or matching any whitening shade which you have achieved through whitening.

What are the benefits of composite bonding?
 

Composite bonding can usually be carried out in just one visit to the dentist or dental therapist. It’s a fast and effective way to fix minor cosmetic issues. The composite is hardened using UV light as soon as it’s applied, resulting in a tooth that can comfortably bite down by the end of the appointment.

Bonding is also a non-invasive procedure. With alternatives such as crowns and veneers, part of the tooth is permanently removed. For composite bonding to be applied, the surface of the tooth only has to be roughened to help the resin to bond, meaning the structure of the tooth remains intact.

What is a Scale and Polish?

Scaling and polishing removes deposits such as plaque and calculus (tartar) from tooth surfaces. Over time, the regular removal of these deposits may reduce gingivitis (a mild form of gum disease) and prevent progression to periodontitis (severe gum disease). Routine scale and polish treatment is sometimes referred to as "prophylaxis", "professional mechanical plaque removal" or "periodontal instrumentation".

What are Fissure Sealants?

Fissure sealants are plastic coatings that are painted on to the grooves of the
back teeth. The sealant forms a protective layer that keeps food and bacteria from getting stuck in the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay. Resin-based fissure sealants should be applied to the permanent molars of all children as early after eruption as possible.

What’s involved?

The process is usually quick and easy taking only a few minutes per tooth. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned, prepared with a special solution, and  dried. The sealant is then applied and allowed to set hard – usually by shining a blue light onto it.

How long does fissure sealant last?

Sealant usually last for many years, but needs to be checked regularly to make sure that the seal is intact. It can wear over time, and sometimes needs to be added to or replaced to be sure that no decay can start underneath it.

What are composite fillings?

Fillings are used as part of general dental treatment to rebuild teeth after a patient develops tooth decay or damages the surface of their tooth in some way. Fillings also help to prevent further damage occurring (this can be through further tooth decay under the filling or from impact), but they must be maintained to ensure that the fillings continue to protect what is left of the original tooth. Tooth-coloured filling materials have increasingly been used in many countries as an alternative to the more traditional amalgam or metallic fillings. As with any filling material these fillings have a limited life-span and eventually problems will occur when they break down or become faulty
