Composite Tooth Repair & Cosmetic Dental Bonding in London
What Is Composite Bonding?
Cosmetic dental bonding, also known as composite full build ups, is a gentle, tooth preserving, tissue friendly, none invasive and efficient process that some dentist master in order to repair, cracked, worn down, discoloured, misaligned, misshaped teeth for the purpose of creation of nicer looking teeth and smile.
Composites are white or natural-looking materials that have been used in dentistry for over 30 years. Most of us already have white or composite fillings.
Composite dental bonding can be used for just a small fix of a single tooth or more extensively on several teeth that show the most when you smile, like a mini smile makeover.
In some severe cases of tooth wear, composite full build ups can be considered in order to restore the lost volume of the teeth through years of function in the oral environment.
SSS clinic in London, with convenient location in west Ealing is proud to offer these services in the hands of our extremely capable and experienced dental surgeon.
Cosmetic Full build ups/Bondings for Your Perfect Smile
Composite Bonding involves taking accurate impressions and jaw registrations of your teeth – having them send send off to a high-end laboratory for a ‘wax-up’ of the perceived end result.
Using this wax-up, we would then sculpt and create tooth-matched ‘infill’s’ to cover the insufficiencies until the gaps are closed. This option represents the quickest and most cost effective mode of alterations that could work for majority of our patients who do not wish to have their natural teeth touched at all.
Bonding is used for a variety of cosmetic dental procedures including:
- Repairing broken and chipped teeth
- Closing small gaps between teeth

- Why composite bonding instead of porcelain veneers? It’s an ideal and often less expensive solution for people with spaces, chips, staining, or slightly crooked or misshapen teeth.
- Composite bonding has a shorter lifespan compared to porcelain Veneers. The lifespan depends on how much was done and your oral health habits and oral hygiene.
