Composite Bonding in Clapton
Do you have discolouration, a minor tooth chip, misalignment or spacing issue? Dental Bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that may be a good solution!
Dental Bonding, or composite bonding, is a form of adhesive dentistry where your dental professional applies a tooth-coloured resin, which is a plastic material, to a broken, crooked or wrongly spaced tooth to correct the position, size or shape of a tooth or set of teeth. The resin is bonded with the material of your tooth and helps improve the overall aesthetics of your smile.
The adhesive materials used on dental bonding can stick to practically any material, whether it be enamel, dentin, metal, porcelain, ceramic or zirconia, all with a single application. This ensures that your fillings last for a long time.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding in In Clapton, Hackney is a leading cosmetic procedure that is full of restorative benefits. Using composite resins, Dr Max Pura and his team of professional dentists can repair your chipped front teeth or hide minor, aesthetic defects. Composite resins for bonding cracked teeth stick with your teeth changing shape.
Direct composite bonding is used to recreate a smile in an additive manner. Little or no tooth reduction is needed. In the hands of a skilled operator, direct bonding is less costly than porcelain veneers and crowns and can be long-lasting with proper maintenance.
Who is a Good Candidate for Tooth Bonding?
Bonding is one of the perfect solutions for treating minor cosmetic flaws. At your preliminary consultation [Free No-obligation Consultation], you will see precisely how dental bonding applies to you. Candidates for this procedure usually have good oral health. Still, their smile needs corrections because teeth are chipped, discoloured, crooked, gapped, or misaligned.
Patients can opt for transitional bonding that is used for anything from a mock-up to full-mouth rehabilitation. The transitional bonding allows the patients to transition into more permanent dentistry as they can afford.
Dental bonding is particularly effective in children and teenagers. Their teeth are not matured yet, so more permanent methods of dental treatment are not recommended. It is also helpful for people who wear braces, which usually lead to new gaps and crowding.

Dental Bonding Procedure
Cosmetic bonding processes usually last no longer than an hour unless you want to restore more than one tooth at a time. During your appointment with Dr Max Pura or Dr Masih Sage, you will undergo the following steps:
- Consultation – before starting the procedure, our dentists will find the best-suited shade of bonding materials. These should be of the same colour as your current teeth. If your smile needs whitening, it is better to whiten before bonding. Otherwise, the cosmetic resins will have a different colour from your natural teeth.
- Preparation – the restoring tooth will be isolated with special dental strips that don’t permit the resin to bond with adjacent teeth. Then, your dentist will etch the tooth surface with a particular acid solution to make it rough enough to start the procedure. To increase resin adherence, the tooth will also be cleaned with a conditioning liquid, providing the highest standards in dental care.
- Bonding – once the preparation is complete, some bonding material will be put onto your tooth using a professional dental tool. Then, the material will be molded and shaped to create an ideal form of your tooth. It may be necessary to apply several layers of the composite resin to ensure the best length and thickness.
- Polishing – this phase is vital to create the right shape of the restored tooth. The dental strips will be removed, and the applied material will be polished with a fine dental drill. Polishing is completed only when the bonding material looks like a natural part of your tooth.
Composite resins are a durable blend of glass and plastic, applicable for restoring the shape of teeth and avoiding further loss of your tooth. Suppose you have such problems as sensitive root canals, worn or fractured teeth. In that case, however, our dentists in Clapton may offer to use bonded porcelains instead.
Composite resins have the shape of your natural tooth. They can adhere by actually bonding the dentin and enamel of the tooth.
The proper material allows for the preservation of as much healthy tooth structure as possible. Unlike porcelain, composite resins do not need laboratory fabrication, so your tooth restoration can be finished by our experienced dentists in one appointment.

Tooth bonding FAQ:
Dental bonding is an option that can be considered to:
- Repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Improve the appearance of discoloured teeth
- Close spaces between teeth
- Make teeth look longer
- Change the shape of teeth
- Use as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
- Protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede
- Preparation. Little advance preparation is needed for dental bonding. Anaesthesia is often not necessary unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth. Your dentist will use a shade guide to select a composite resin colour that will closely match the colour of your tooth.
- The bonding process. Next, the surface of the tooth will be roughened, and a conditioning liquid applied. These procedures help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-coloured, putty-like resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape. An ultraviolet light or laser is then used to harden the material. After the material is hardened, your dentist will further trim and shape it and polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.
- Time to completion. Dental bonding takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete.
