Composite Bonding is a great non-invasive solution

We can change how your teeth look with composite bonding (sometimes called dental bonding or composite veneers). The result will look neat but natural, which means you can smile with confidence without your teeth looking artificial.

This is a non-invasive treatment, so it will not damage or weaken your teeth. We do not (usually) have to shave any enamel off your teeth, and we can usually carry out the treatment with no anaesthetic.

We can use bonding to:

  • Improve the shape of teeth
  • Repair teeth which are chipped, damaged or worn
  • Make crowded teeth appear straight
  • Close gaps between the front teeth

Align, Bleach, Bond

Combine bonding with teeth straightening and whitening for an amazing result

Our patients

Laura from Leeds

I have been so so happy with my experience at Market Place Dentistry from start to finish.
Andy spent a lot of time talking through my options and I decided to go for composite veneers.
He thoroughly explained the process so I have felt at ease at every stage. The end result is excellent, we reviewed each tooth in detail to ensure I was totally happy… and I really am.
Thank you again!

How does it work?

Composite veneers diagram

We apply and bond a layer of composite directly onto your tooth surface. We shape, polish and finish the composite to give an appearance just like a natural tooth, and which fits in with your teeth and smile.

Before starting your treatment, we would usually plan the final result using a mock-up model of your teeth. We can use this to decide the number, position and shape of veneers which would give you the best possible result.

When we are ready to carry out your treatment, we usually apply the bonding all in a single appointment. We can tweak and adjust the shape of the composites so you are completely happy with the result. It usually takes around 45-60 minutes to complete each tooth. We would not normally need to use anaesthetic.

As with all teeth and restorations, composite bonding will need maintenance over time. However, maintenance is relatively straightforward – we may need to polish, smooth or repair your restorations from time to time.
