Composite Bonding London

Bonding is used as a relatively simple method of disguising small defects such as chipped or crooked teeth or gaps between teeth.

Composite bonding in Dulwich and London is an excellent choice where there are small gaps, misalignments and contour deficiencies. It can be used as a stand alone treatment or as part of a treatment such as orthodontics to achieve a beautiful smile. In simple terms we will firstly plan your ideal smile, then apply a substrate for the composite resin to bond to. The composite is then added to the tooth structure and shaped using highly specialised instruments. Here are the three main stages in detail.

Planning of Composite Bonding

It is essential that we assess whether you are suitable. We will examine the shape, contour and position of your teeth. Its important we assess how your teeth meet. This will ensure your bite is unchanged and in some instances function can be enhanced, at the minimum we aim for your function to be exactly the same as it was before the composite bonding procedure. Your smile is assessed with regards to golden proportion rules that govern natural beauty. These are long established principles of ratios in height and width, that’s govern how the final result will appear. Your teeth do not have to be in the perfect position for composite bonding to be effective. We will try to reduce the black triangle space that appear at the corners of the mouth when smiling. Composite bonding can contribute towards a wider smile.

In addition to assessing how we are to achieve a natural looking smile we may take radiographs and look at your teeth under magnification. After the initial diagnosis, we will go through with you how composite bonding can result in a beautiful smile.

On your treatment day we may build your smile using a direct technique or an indirect technique. A direct technique of composite bonding is where we apply the composite to your tooth free hand. An indirect technique is where we use a mould to create the desired shape and contour, this can also be done by a technique called injection moulding. We will apply a substrate onto the tooth that is invisible. This will allow the composite resin to bond to the tooth. In most cases the substrate is strong enough to hold the composite resin for many years to come. The composite resin is then bonded to the tooth using the chosen technique. We may use moulds or photos to allow us to design the perfect smile. The final stage of composite bonding is polishing. This is an essential stage to not only shape the tooth but create the angles necessary so that light reflects off the tooth in the most natural way. By such attention to detail we obtained a result where in any situation day or night your smile always looks natural.

The beauty of composite bonding is that as you age it can be polished and refreshed. This is often a simple process. Whilst composite bonding is one of the least invasive cosmetic procedures we will go through you a consent form before the start of your procedure.

The Dentist, Hygienist, Dental Nurses & Especially the Receptionist staff are very Polite, Friendly & most importantly they try to fit you in quickly in the event of an emergency. Recently I couldn’t get the time of work for an emergency appointment for my 81 year old Mum so I called an Uber for her & told the receptionist this. The young Black Lady called me when she ordered & place my Mother in a cab – so she went above & beyond her duties with a lot of Customer Care & Respect for my Mother- Thank You so much

Zehra M.

Friendly staff and a very good turn around for appointments , next step to meet the hygienist if he’s as lovely as the rest of the staff it will be great

Vince A.

Great service! Im usually so nervous when coming in to the dentist but my dentist was so pleasant and polite ! Dulwich Dental Office will definitely be my dentist for life

Tomike O.

I lost my two front teeth whilst at school and had complications for years. Unfortunately I ended up needing an implant – which I had been avoiding! I wish I had done it sooner. Dr Patel was fantastic and guided me through each stage. He was always contactable to answer any queries or concerns. Very happy with the end result and would reccomend.

Tom O.

Registered and seen on the NHS within 2 weeks – amazing. Really friendly staff, would definitely recommend

Tom C.

I have recently finished an invisalign program with Pooja at dulwich dental office and couldn’t be happier. The treatment was easy and pain free and the results are great. Pooja’s experience and friendliness made me feel at ease throughout. I would 100% recommend for anyone considering similar treatment.

Toby B.

A great surgery; Dr Cavan in particular spent time with me to make sure my new night guards fitted well and were up to the job

Dentist Pooja Pillay is excellent and was very patient with me as I I took a long time (years!) deciding whether or not to take the plunge and have Invisalign to straighten my teeth. It didn’t take too long and was easier than I thought it would be. Pooja kept a close eye on how it was all progressing and we even went a bit longer with it just to really perfect the result. I’m delighted with the outcome. Everything was included in the price, even the extra aligners and appointments when we decided to go on a bit longer. All staff at the practice have been excellent. Highly recommend.

Susie F.

I had my Invisaligns done by Dr Pillay and she really took the time to make sure my teeth are lovely and straight. She has always been available with any queries or follow up treatment I needed – and made me feel well looked after from the beginning and end of the treatment. I really recommend seeing her if you want to get Invisaligns done.

Stella C.

Dr. Cavan is super attentive and thoughtful and great at putting is patients at ease. I hate going to the dentist but havent dreaded it once. Everyone is super friendly and clinic is nice. I could not recommend more.

I am undergoing a course of Invisalign treatment with Dulwich Dental Office and I am so pleased with the results, even at this early stage. It is great that I can take the braces out to eat and clean my teeth. I am looking forward to the end result.
