Composite Bonding

Composite bonding strengthens and improves the appearance of teeth with the application of white or tooth-coloured composite materials. Our state-of-the-art dental clinic in Lewisham uses this effective cosmetic treatment to fix dental imperfections and enhance smiles.

Is it right for me?

Bonding is a cosmetic solution for teeth already in good health. It’s a great treatment for anyone looking for a fast, affordable, and minimally-invasive method of perfecting their smile.

Bonding can be used to:

  • Repair decayed teeth (fill cavities)
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Whiten discoloured teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Lengthen and reshape teeth
  • Straighten mildly crooked teeth
  • Restore worn edges

Your cosmetic dentist in Lewisham can also use composite materials to enhance the teeth that show when you smile. 

If you need a more complex treatment to fix a bad bite or deep cracks in the teeth, for example, other treatments may be a better choice. Your private dentist in Lewisham will determine if composite bonding is the right option for you at your consultation.

What happens during treatment?

Composite bonding can be completed in just one appointment at our dental practice in Lewisham - a quicker alternative to porcelain veneers. More complex cases, however, may require several visits.

Anesthetic injections may be given depending on the nature of your treatment.

Firstly, your dentist in Lewisham will remove some of the tooth enamel and apply a conditioning liquid. This will ensure a strong bond between the composite material and adhesive, which is then applied. 

Next, your dentist will skillfully apply, mould, and smooth out the bonding material to achieve the desired look. The composite material will then be hardened with a special light.

To finish, your dentist will further trim, shape, and polish the bonding material. It will be made to look natural and match your teeth.


Composite bonding is a durable and long lasting treatment. Simply maintain good oral hygiene and attend our dental surgery in Lewisham for regular checkups. You should also avoid biting down on particularly hard foods to prevent your bonding from cracking.
