When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, composite teeth bonding is a cut above the rest. This transformative treatment has become a firm favourite amongst Ten Dental patients, which comes as no surprise to us!


If you’re a South West London resident who has heard the rave reviews, you might be wondering, ‘where can I get composite bonding near me?’. Read on to find out the answer to this, along with our thoughts on why this popular treatment is so very special. 


What is composite teeth bonding?

Before we go any further, let’s clear up the answer to this all-important question. Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses a composite resin mixture to change the appearance of your teeth.


The mixture itself resembles putty, and we refer to a shade guide so that it matches your natural teeth perfectly. The resin is perfect for filling small gaps, cracks or chips, as it’s malleable and easily shaped. 


What happens during the procedure?

The composite teeth bonding procedure is very simple and often only takes an hour. First, we will assess your teeth and choose a shade for the composite resin. We slightly roughen the surface of each tooth to ensure the bonding sticks firmly.


Then, we apply a type of conditioning liquid which helps the bonding to stick. We apply the composite resin on top, smoothing it over each tooth and carefully sculpting it to create the perfect finish. 


Finally, we harden the bonding in place with ultraviolet light and polish the bonding so it matches your natural teeth. And voila! There you have it – a perfectly smooth, white, even new smile.


Can I get composite bonding with other dental treatments?

Absolutely! Bonding works perfectly to complement other cosmetic treatments, especially Invisalign and whitening. 


Often, patients come to Ten Dental with more than one concern about their teeth. We offer expert smile makeovers – whereby we combine multiple cosmetic treatments – to create a bespoke result. 


For instance, many people opt for teeth whitening before bonding, as the composite resin is then colour-matched to their new shade of teeth. Or perhaps after Invisalign treatment to neaten up rough edges. The result? A stunningly bright, straight, neat smile! 


What are the benefits of composite teeth bonding?

Bonding has quickly become one of our most in-demand treatments. Here are just a few of the reasons why:


  • The procedure doesn’t hurt – not a drill or needle in sight!
  • It’s a cost-effective alternative to composite veneers
  • The results can last for up to ten years
  • It’s non-invasive, which means no shaven teeth 
  • It often only takes around an hour to complete


It sounds too good to be true, right? Well luckily, it isn’t! We have transformed thousands of smiles using this innovative treatment, so we have seen first-hand the difference it can make. 


Hear from a happy patient

We love reading your kind reviews – this one, in particular, put a big smile on our faces! Our patient had composite teeth bonding treatment with Dr Jess and was thrilled with her results:


“I’m delighted with the results of my tooth whitening and composite bonding with Dr Jessica Huang. Due to teeth grinding, I had worn down my upper front teeth and was really self-conscious about how shortened they looked… along with yellow from my coffee addiction! I was keen to improve them but anxious about wanting a natural look. Thanks to Dr Jess’s expert care, the results have even exceeded my expectations and I feel so much more confident as a result. The next stage is Invisalign and composite bonding to my lower teeth and I will definitely be going back. I cannot recommend Dr Jess and the Ten Dental team highly enough!”
