Bonding is a fast way of restarting your smile without causing any damage to your teeth. 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.

Once you are content with your new smile created by the Tooth Club specialists, we can recommend a few tips on how to maintain it –

1. Avoid staining for 48 hours! Tea, coffee, smoking, red wine can all contribute to staining your new beautiful white smile.

2. Keep up your oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth regularly and maintaining good oral help will promote your composite to stay clean and untainted for even longer.

3. Avoid biting nails or chewing, bonding is extremely strong but not as strong as the normal tooth so try not to damage on items that are not food.

The composites themselves are done in one appointment. We will always book a consultation appointment first. Most people will have a review appointment after to ensure they are completely happy.

In most cases composite is applied with no obvious drilling to the natural tooth. For cases that require tooth adjustment, you will be advised beforehand in the consultation appointment.

The tooth surface is thoroughly cleaned and then prepared with a gel that roughens the surface microscopically. The putty like composite resin material is then applied using special instruments and brushes to sculpt to the desired shape, often in several layers. Using a special light, the material is then hardened. Further layers can then be added accordingly. The procedure is then completed with smoothing of the tooth surface and polishing
