Composite bonding is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment that can give you the smile of your dreams, with minimal preparation of your natural teeth. Once the composite tooth bonding procedure is complete, you’ll have a beautiful smile that will see your confidence soar.
Composite tooth bonding, also known as dental bonding, involves the use of tooth-coloured resin to repair chipped, discoloured, fractured or decayed teeth. The treatment is so-called because the material is ‘bonded’ to your teeth. Here at Ollie & Darsh, we offer composite bonding from £335 per tooth.

Before we begin the tooth bonding procedure, we will use a shade chart to make sure the composite bonding resin we choose is a perfect colour match to your natural teeth
Then, we prepare your surrounding teeth for the procedure and coat the tooth we’re treating with a light amount of conditioning liquid to help the resin bond with your enamel
The next step is to apply the resin. We will mould and smooth the putty-like material until it is shaped exactly the way you want it, before shining a special ultraviolet light onto your tooth to set the resin.
When the resin has hardened, we will polish the tooth so that it matches the shine of your natural teeth.
This procedure is shorter than many other cosmetic procedures, lasting upwards from an hour. All that’s left to do then is enjoy your beautiful new smile!

Composite bonding is one of the least invasive cosmetic dental treatments that exist for the purpose of fixing the existing shape of the colour of your tooth/teeth. If you are suffering from a loss of confidence due to chipping teeth, decayed teeth, discoloured teeth or any other imperfections and want to improve your smile, composite bonding will be considered by our cosmetic dentistry team at Ollie & Darsh. Composite bonding can also enhance the shape of your teeth for the long term.
As well as the obvious benefit of restoring confidence in your smile, there is a whole list of benefits that you’ll reap as a result of composite bonding. Composite bonding is really easy for our dentistry team to deliver and you’ll see excellent results more or less instantaneously. Treatment options are also more flexible than most other cosmetic dentistry treatments as you can choose from different materials such as resin or porcelain depending on your current issues.
There are several different reasons why you may be considering composite bonding. As we get older, teeth naturally deteriorate but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing we can do about it. For busy people, composite bonding may be the perfect option and better than alternatives such as clear braces. Those who don’t have the time to commit to longer treatment processes would arguably seek composite bonding. We offer an initial consultation process to discover the best treatment for you and your teeth.
Composite bonding treatments are very versatile which comes in handy when treating crooked teeth and filling in small gaps or chips between teeth. Composite bonding can be completed on a same-day service which is beneficial to patients that would rather not commit to longer-term treatments yet still achieve proven results. Tooth-colored composite material can also sometimes be used to re-shape teeth and make them appear straighter.
Initially, we will invite you into our dental clinic in Liverpool for a consultation where we will analyse the current condition of your teeth and issues that you want to improve. We will also conduct an assessment to make sure you are the right candidate for this type of dental treatment. If all is agreed to, we will then go ahead with the treatment at our facilities with the process streamlined so that all is completed in one visit.
It can depend on various factors, such as how well the area has been cared for and the quality of the material used. The aesthetic usually lasts five to ten years – but if it is looked after properly with good oral hygiene whilst avoiding bad habits such as biting your nails or chewing on hard objects, you can extend its longevity to up to 15 years.
Yes! Composite bonding can be expertly whitened and rejuvenated with care from a qualified cosmetic dentist. This type of procedure involves applying a bleaching agent directly onto the surface of the existing composite material to remove surface stains and achieve a brighter, more aesthetically appealing smile.
The process is safe, non-invasive, and cost-effective, with no requirement for post-treatment visits making it an ideal choice for those who want to improve their smile without undergoing drastic or invasive treatments.
No – resin composite bonding is safe and gentle on the teeth. Composite bonding can repair and reshape teeth while protecting any areas needing it. As long as an experienced cosmetic dentist administers it, you won’t have to worry about your teeth being damaged or weakened due to the procedure.
Composite bonding is not recommended for people with extensive decay or fracturing, as these conditions may compromise aesthetic results. Suppose you have an existing restoration, such as a crown or veneer. In that case, it is usually best to replace this instead of using composite bonding to repair the tooth unless directed by your dental professional.
Suppose you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding) on an ongoing basis. In that case, your dentist will likely advise against having composite bonding due to the likelihood of it fracturing or shredding prematurely.
Can you get composite bonding on NHS? The answer to this is, unfortunately, not quite. Generally, dental treatments like composite bonding would be private treatments and therefore may not be covered by NHS services. Although it may cost a little more than an NHS treatment initially, it could be worth paying with the benefit of longer-lasting effects in comparison to some standard NHS treatments.
Composite bonding offers a simple and minimally invasive approach to repairing various dental issues. However, it also carries some drawbacks. It is not as durable and long-lasting as some other restoration methods, such as veneers or crowns, meaning it may need to be replaced more frequently than these options.
It’s a common question for those considering cosmetic dentistry, and there are pros and cons to choosing one or the other. Bonding is a quick, relatively less expensive option for smaller fixes such as chips or cracks, but it does not last as long as veneers, which may require more investment in time and money.
Veneers give you a beautiful smile with long-term durability, but they are irreversible once put on your teeth.
Yes, it is possible! Drinking non-staining beverages like coffee shortly after composite bonding treatment is safe. Composite bonding involves the application of bonding material directly on the tooth surface that needs to be repaired and reshaped.
This material can stand up against liquids when it has been dried and polished correctly by an experienced dentist. In addition to coffee, non-staining beverages such as tea, water, and soft drinks are all okay to drink after composite bonding, but it is best to take care not to stain the teeth.
It depends on the procedure that is best for your individual goals. In some cases, composite bonding can be used without any orthodontic work being needed, whereas in others, a straighter appearance may help create an even more pleasing aesthetic outcome.
While composite bonding can ‘mask’ slightly crooked teeth and mask certain imperfections, using braces or clear aligners beforehand can provide superior results, giving you the dazzling smile of your dreams!
