Composite Bonding 
is where we use a tooth coloured restorative material called composite to build up on to a tooth. 
We use adhesive dentistry to bond the composite onto the teeth, and often there is either minimal or no drilling of teeth.
Composite Veneers 

are where we use the composite to cover the whole surface of the tooth. They are usually bonded stronger than porcelain veneers with less chance of breakage and are easier to repair and much more cost effective too. The quick Mini Smile Makeover.

Frequently Asked Questions

We use a range of composites to best suit each person and tooth: from sonicfills to microfills, nanofills and microhybrids, from superbright to regular shades. Composites are great for cosmetic and functional fillings, as well as a great material for managing tooth wear cases too. To best find out suitability, we suggest a consultation with us.

Since each case needs to be assessed on its own merits, alternatives will be discussed during your visit to see us.

As with any cosmetic treatment, one alternative is to have no treatment. However, in some instances, doing no treatment can mean things like tooth wear or erosion or abrasion damage, or tooth decay or gum disease get worse.

Composite is a versatile material, and often a great choice for building and enhancing the look of teeth. One alternative is to use Porcelain. Porcelain can be used as crowns or veneers, or bridgework.

Porcelain work often involves more work, including more removal of tooth tissue to accommodate the porcelain work.

Porcelain crowns are quite invasive and better used in cases where there has been work done already to teeth, eg. large fillings, root-filled teeth.

Porcelain veneers are less invasive, and can be done with minimal preparation in a lot of cases. However they can often still be more invasive than composite veneers. Porcelain veneers look really good, and can last well, but they are more at risk of fractures and are more difficult to repair. Porcelain veneers often require more involved diagnostic planning to minimise the chance of breakages. 

Porcelain crowns cost from £700/tooth (this is discounted by 15% to plan members)

Porcelain veneers cost from £700- £1200/tooth (this is discounted by 15% to plan members)

Another alternative is the Snap on Veneers. These are often only indicated in cases where there are missing teeth or misaligned teeth, or teeth with multiple restorations, where other treatments are outside the scope of treatment based on budget or other factors. These cost £1300 per arch. Snap on Veneers are not an ideal treatment, and often are not indicated. 

Often Composite Bonding alone works, but each case is different and sometimes we cannot offer Composite Bonding without alignment first, with either braces or Invisalign.

Often 1 visit for the bonding. Usually no injections. Often no drilling into teeth and instead just mild contouring. Follow up appointments recommended for tweaks and repairs following main appointment.

Please note we cannot carry out Composite Bonding if your gum health is not adequate enough. Dental hygienist visits will be recommended to help with your gum health if needed.

Obviously each case is different. It is important to plan your smile journey in advance and to book on as earliest as possible to help with this.

Most treatments begin in about a month depending on appointment availability. Popular times do get booked up quickly.

Most Invisalign treatments range from 3 months to about 12 months depending on the complexity of the case. 

Whitening treatments take about a month.

Composite Bonding is only done after a 2 week break from whitening teeth. Then the Bonding is often done in one visit; however we always book follow up visits to see how you are getting on and to finish any areas not fully completed. Sometimes for more complex cases or cases with lots of teeth requiring  bonding we will need several appointments.

Often WHITENING is done before, and this takes ~1 month. Following whitening, we need to wait 2 weeks before Composite Bonding can be done.

There is always a saturation point and a limit to how white Teeth Whitening can get your teeth. 

After a course of whitening, we can review your results and see if any further treatment is recommended.

In cases where we do Composite Bonding after whitening, we can match or even enhance the whitening result. 

We use a range of high quality composite resin materials and we also stock the whitest of composite resin materials available, these include the superbright range. 

Note we also have aesthetic and natural looking composites too. And we aim to get the result that’s right for you.

We do not use a shade guide to measure whitening, as these are inaccurate and subjective. Instead we use photography and artistic judgment as well as feedback to help gauge what is right for you.

Usually lasts ~5-6 years. Guaranteed for 3 years if you’re a member of our dental plan in most cases. Otherwise guaranteed for 12 months. Usually small repairs or simple replacements are required. After about 6 years then full replacements or alternative treatment may be suitable.

Composite Bonding will look their best if they’re maintained periodically with whitening and also with polishing and cosmetic hygiene once or twice a year.

A protective appliance may be recommended to help prevent damage, and improve longevity.

Regular check ups with us and regular hygiene visits will help. Maintain best by polishing ~once or twice a year with our hygienist. And Whitening Top-Ups help to keep them looking their best.

Our dental plan members have 2 check ups a year and 2 hygiene sessions a year and free Whitening Top-Up at every hygiene visit.

Often a follow-up or several follow-ups may be needed to refine the Composites.

Sometimes chips can happen, and it is about testing how the composite works in your mouth.

Composite Bonding is done to a high polish. However there is always a risk of staining. 

Most cases usually between ~£200-£350 per tooth. Each case is different with different difficulties and risk factors and an assessment will be needed before a quote can be given. 

0% finance available over 12 months, subject to status.

The best offers on Composite Bonding and treatments will be with our dental plans. Composite Bonding is discounted even further on our Mini Smile Makeover Consult days, and further still with our dental plans, and more so when following Invisalign® treatment.

The Mini Smile-Makeover, is a term used for more minimally-invasive dentistry to restore a smile. 
In the past, more destructive methods of tooth preparation were required, to accommodate Porcelain Crowns, and even Veneers.
Now, with Composite Bonding, we can restore smiles much more conservatively.
Sometimes a Mini Smile Makeover will involve Invisalign® treatment to move teeth to a better position so that they can look better and accommodate composite bonding.

Offers on the day include:-
Free Smile Assessment with the dentist
Free 3D Digital Scan if indicated
Free Invisalign Outcome simulation
Discounts on Invisalign treatments with up to £1000 off 
Free standard retainers with Invisalign
From 15% to 50% off Composite Bonding

Without a doubt the best dentist I’ve ever been to. Always so accommodating, welcoming & friendly. All staff are amazing whenever my children have been in with me, and on several occasions they have gone above and beyond any expectations
Gemma Louise
Best dentist EVER! Daniel is kind and caring with a great team behind him. Have been a patient for over 2 years now and would recommend him to anyone and everyone. As well as given a professional opinion, he also gives his honest opinion which I respect him for as he has done amazing work on my teeth. Everyone in the centre are warm, welcoming and very acommodating. Wouldn't change my dentist for the world!
I can’t thank Daniel and his team enough for all the work they’ve done and helped me throughout my journey. I first came to Daniel very scared and anxious. He has helped alleviate my fear and become more relaxed in the dentist chair. All the team are very friendly and caring and genuinely do everything they can to make you feel at ease. I would 100% recommend BDC to anyone wanting a great conscientious dentist. I’m over the mood with how well he’s transformed my smile and given me the confidence I thought I’d never get back.
