Types of Composite Bonding
There are three main types of composite bonding possible to get you the smile aesthetic that you want and here at Dental on the Banks, we offer all three! These are composite bonding (also known as composite veneers), edge bonding and injection moulded composite bonding. Learn about all three types of composite bonding below:
This is also known as ‘composite veneers’ or ‘cosmetic bonding’ and is the most popular type. It involves the use of the white filling material (known as composite) being applied to your natural tooth – quite like it being painted onto your teeth to make them more even and uniform in shape, size and style. Due to this, there is no damage to your natural teeth as there is no drilling or injections involved. You can see the results of this in the image above. Here at Dental on the Banks, this costs £399 per tooth.
Like the name suggests, composite edge bonding is where just the edges of your teeth are treated. So if the edges of your teeth are quite uneven or jagged and not smooth, this is the ideal treatment for them. It targets and treats the edges of your teeth to finish them off with a sleek and straight appearance – building upon the uneven and jagged edges to make them uniform and straight. This is very popular with patients of all ages as it works to tweak the look of their smile just as they want it. You can see the results of this in the image above. Composite edge bonding at Dental on the Banks is £195 per tooth.
Injection Moulded Composite Bonding
With this, our aesthetics dentists create a custom mould of your teeth and mouth and use this as the basis to plan exactly how you want your teeth to look. The mould is then edited to incorporate a fully new shape for your teeth and then during treatment, the mould is placed over your natural teeth so that the aesthetic dentist can inject the composite material into the ideal shapes of the mould. You can see the results of this in the image above. Injection moulded composite bonding is priced on a case-by-case basis as no two cases are ever the same.
Note: It is highly recommended that you complete teeth whitening before composite bonding (more information on teeth whitening here) so that the composite can be custom made to match this pearly white shade.
