About This Service

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding (or dental bonding) is a treatment that involves restoring or rebuilding teeth to their proper shape and contour using a specialised tooth-coloured resin material.

An excellent treatment for those wanting to fix teeth which may be chipped, small, or discoloured. Composite bonding can also be used to mask mild crowding or crookedness by giving the appearance of straighter and whiter teeth.

Completed in just one visit and starting from $200/tooth, composite bonding is an excellent budget-friendly option for those looking to repair or rejuvenate their smile. Invest in your teeth and you’ll wear your smile with confidence every day.

How long does composite bonding last?

Composite bonding generally lasts around 5 years. However, this doesn’t mean that they just fall off once you’ve had them for that long. What you may start to notice is signs of chipping or staining in the areas where the composite bonding has been completed. With the right diet and maintenance this can be minimised.

What are the benefits of composite bonding?

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-coloured shells that are attached to the natural teeth to improve their shape, colour and overall appearance. They’re the perfect treatment option for those wanting to fix chipped, discoloured, small, or crooked teeth. Like starting with a blank canvas, we can dream into reality the smile you’ve always wanted.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

Composite bonding is a great way to get rid of some of those insecurities you may have in your smile.

It helps to:

  • Fill in any gaps or spaces
  • Restore any chips or breaks
  • Improve the overall colour of your teeth
  • Lengthen any teeth to level your smile
  • Re-align your teeth

Budget-friendly and natural looking, composite bonding is a great option for those looking to increase their self-confidence.

Does composite bonding ruin your teeth?

While it’s common to think so, the answer is no. Composite bonding doesn’t ruin your teeth. Our priority is always to keep your teeth as healthy as possible, and so while you may have heard or seen horror stories of patients having their teeth shaved down, when done properly composite bonding should not require any shaving or filing of the underlying tooth.

Does composite bonding look natural?

Absolutely. Your teeth can still look natural with composite bonding. The resin material is applied carefully onto the teeth in layers. This allows us to accurately sculpt the teeth so that they’re shaped, sized and coloured to fit naturally with your smile.

What is the difference between composite bonding and veneers?

Composite bonding and veneers are similar treatments, both helping with gaps in the teeth, tooth discolouration, and cracks in your smile. However while both treatments are similar, there is a significant difference. Composite veneers will be placed onto the whole tooth, covering the surface front and protecting the tooth underneath. Composite bonding involves adding to the structure of the real tooth with a bonding agent to create that glowing, healthy smile. Costs will vary depending on each individual, however composite bonding is generally the most budget-friendly option.

Why is dental bonding so popular now?

Dental bonding is actually a lot more simple than people may think. Requiring less removal of the tooth’s enamel, this treatment can be performed within 60 minutes per tooth. This budget-friendly option is perfect for those wanting a brighter and fuller smile.

Will people be able to tell that I’ve got dental bonding?

The composites used to bond your teeth together look so natural that those around you won’t notice (unless you tell them). Styled to fit your natural teeth and colour matched, dental bonding allows you to improve the appearance of your teeth and feel completely confident without others knowing.

What are my treatment options?
