Composite Bonding Experts
Composite bonding is a cosmetic procedure that is very similar to composite veneers, however the difference is that bonding does not cover the entire teeth (as composite veneers do). Composite bonding is an affordable and minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry option designed to beautify your smile. You can have straighter teeth with minimal or no damage to your existing tooth structure. Composite bonding can be colour matched to your existing teeth or we can create slightly whiter teeth for you whilst still maintaining a natural realistic look and feel. The difference between veneers and bonding, is that with bonding the colour of your teeth and the shape does not change to a great extent.
Composite Bonding is designed to cover the surface of your teeth in order to correct their appearance, shape, colour and position. Suitable for adults, teenagers, as well as even younger patients, the composite bonding process is more economical than for porcelain veneers, and the whole procedure is normally entirely reversible.
Dr William is able to correct your cosmetic concerns so that you can smile with confidence. Composite bonding effectively correct dental defects including chips, misaligned teeth and discolourations. We offer a 2 year guarantee on all our composite bonding.
Composite bonding will effectively correct
- Permanently stained or discoloured teeth
- Uneven, crooked teeth
- Broken, worn or chipped teeth
- Diastemas (spaces between teeth)
- Misshaped or poorly formed teeth
It all begins with a 3D visualisation…
You will be able to visualise what your composite bonding will look like prior to proceeding with the procedure. The visualisation procedure doesn’t damage your teeth at all and works to help us custom design your composite bonding with your own personal input, creating a composite outcome that is ideally crafted to your exact specifications. Composite bonding is very often used after Invisalign to correct minor shape anomalies-visual imperfections in teeth.

We provide composite bonding that utilises the multi award winning IPS Empress direct system from Germany, which combines the aesthetics of ceramics with high surface gloss for a lasting and beautiful result (many dentists use inferior cheaper composites for bonding and veneers- these cheaper composites with poor shade choices are designed for fillings and not for composite bonding or veneers- use of these inferior composites inevtably results in inferior aesthetic outcomes). Whereas most dentists use a single shade of composite ,Dr William uses multiple pulp, dentine and enamel shades to create a chameleon effect so as to mimic the appearance of real teeth. please refer to our photo galleries.
Traditional bonded composite maintains the original shape of your teeth but make them whiter, however Dr William offers Extended (3 D) bonding which will change the shape and colour of your teeth. This three-dimensional change in shape is unique to each individual dentist and patient.
In this sense, the composite bonding provided by Dr William is tailor made and unique to each individual patient. Unlike many other dentists who recreate a similar shape to your original set of teeth, we’ll go through your options and design the perfect smile for you; the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
