Got chipped, cracked or stained teeth?
We have just the solution.
Composite bonding in Glasgow is an excellent way of enhancing the overall appearance of your smile, requiring little to no preparation on your natural teeth.
We use the same composite material we use for white fillings to correct staining, repair chips, or even reduce the appearance of gaps between the teeth in just a single appointment. We can even adjust the shade of the material to match the rest of your teeth to achieve the most seamless, natural look.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
The process begins with an initial consultation.
During this appointment, we’ll check if you’re eligible for the treatment, discuss the dental problems you’ve been having and how exactly you want your teeth to look.
On the day of your composite bonding appointment, your dentist will begin by roughening the surface of your tooth to help the composite material bond to it.
Then, they will apply a strong adhesive before placing the resin onto your tooth and finish by shaping it to match the rest of your natural teeth.
Finally, we’ll cure it with a special light and polish it for a smooth finish.
Cosmetic bonding in Glasgow requires minimal tooth preparation beforehand, so it usually doesn’t hurt.
No anaesthetic is needed, and no permanent alterations are made to the natural structure of your teeth – as no drilling is necessary.
You may experience some sensitivity to heat and cold after the procedure, which an over-the-counter pain medication can relieve until your symptoms subside.CALL US
There are a couple of things you can do to maintain the results of your Glasgow composite bonding treatment.
Follow good oral hygiene practices by brushing your teeth twice every day and taking the time to floss.
Avoid substances known to stain the teeth, such as tea, coffee, and red wine for at least 48 hours after the procedure, as composite resin can stain in the same way as natural teeth.
You should also steer clear of biting into hard things like ice cubes or sweets and chewing on pens, fingernails, and other objects, as they have the potential to damage bonded teeth.
Cosmetic bonding in Glasgow is a simple and affordable solution to minor imperfections.
Whilst composite bonding in Glasgow is great for a variety of different dental issues, and the treatment of choice for many people suffering from chipped, discoloured or gappy teeth, it’s not always a suitable option for everybody.
A couple of different things could impact your eligibility – like if you have a habit of clenching or grinding your teeth or biting your nails – as this would only damage the bonding.
Your teeth also need to be healthy before the treatment – and if you have severely chipped or cracked teeth, this can compromise the integrity of the bonding. If this sounds like you, you’d be better off opting for dental crowns or another, more suitable alternative that will provide more support for your natural teeth and prevent future damage.

The NHS doesn’t currently offer composite bonding, as it’s considered a cosmetic treatment – so only private practices, like us, can offer the treatment.
Even though private treatment can be more pricey, it does come with its fair few advantages – from longer, more personalised appointments and shorter wait times, to the use of higher quality equipment and specialised techniques.
And, although we’re a private clinic, we’re proud to be able to offer some of the most affordable prices for cosmetic bonding in Glasgow.

Providing that you take good care of your teeth after your cosmetic bonding treatment, the results could last you for up to 10 years before needing to be touched up or replaced.
Most patients find that their cosmetic bonding lasts until around the 5-year mark, but their longevity depends on several factors, such as your oral hygiene habits and how many teeth were treated.
Because we use some of the highest quality, state-of-the-art equipment and dental techniques, you can be confident that your composite bonding will last when you trust us with your treatment.
