Perfect Smiles with Composite Bonding Wigan

Keep all your own healthy teeth but still achieve your perfect smile with no need for drilling.

What is Composite Tooth Bonding

Composite Bonding, or Dental Bonding is used to refine and alter the shape of your own natural teeth, without the need for drilling. Composite Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses a tooth-coloured resin which is applied to the tooth to repair chipped teeth or improve the shape of a tooth and also restore its original appearance. The resin during the treatment is bonded, polished and shaped to match your own teeth , so you get your own unique perfect smile.

Dental bonding, also known as composite resin bonding, is a technique that adds material to your teeth to alter or supplement their shape. Your dental professional applies and shapes a putty-like resin to your teeth before bonding them permanently in this procedure.

Problems that Teeth Bonding Can Address

One of the main advantages of choosing cosmetic bonding to improve the look and feel of your smile is that this treatment is able to address a number of different issues including:

  • Reshape the tooth
  • Slightly shorter teeth
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Chipped or slightly damaged teeth
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Increase the size of teeth

And one of the main benefits of composite bonding is that it is completely reversible.

These records will be used to create a treatment plan, tailored for you. You may be given a bleaching kit at this appointment if appropriate.

The Cosmetic Bonding

The best thing about composite bonding dental treatment is that you can have it done all in one day after your examination!!

First, you will decide if you are happy with the shade of your teeth. If you wish to whiten them, you will be given a Boutique Whitening kit with custom trays to whiten your teeth for 2–4 weeks at home. Your cosmetic dentist will match the correct resin colour to match the colour of your natural tooth. Next is we will roughen the surface to be treated and bonding liquid will be put onto the tooth. A tooth-coloured putty-resin will be moulded into shape and hardened with UV rays. The bonding will then be trimmed to polish and match the tooth surface.

“Walked into the surgery over 18 months ago crying with lots of ongoing complex issues with my teeth.”

“Peter and the team identified the issues after X-rays and devised a plan for me. This involved complex root canal treatment on 3 teeth followed by restorative work on a further 3 teeth.I was absolutely over the moon with the work that Peter and Matthew did and they managed to save 3 teeth that initially they expected would need to be removed.”

“I was then handed over to Amisha Patel for Invisalign treatment…Amisha has been brilliant from start to finish and is a perfectionist & ensuring you get the smile you want.”

“The final journey for me was back with Peter for composite bonding. Peter again has done an outstanding job with my teeth. I was nervous having these done as did not want them to look too obvious. They are simply amazing!”
