What is Composite Bonding?

If you need minor ‘tweakments’ to your smile or would like a new smile, composite bonding can give you all of this in one visit.

Compound bonding allows you to walk away with the smile you are looking for after a single treatment session. Let’s explain what composite bonding is:

Composite – the natural tooth coloured resin that is used on your teeth

Bonding – the process by which the composites is fixed to the teeth.

We can improve the appearance of teeth in a variety of way. It can be carried out with Invisalign, orthodontics, whitening, veneers and / or composite bonding. Sometimes it involves a variety of these methods.

Whatever you choose, we will do our best to ensure it is in your best interests and give you a smile you are looking for that suits your individual needs.

Trial Smile
Before committing to having any treatment carried out, we can give you a ‘trial smile’! This allows us to layer and shape your teeth with composite to give you a sense of what can be achieved. We have a wide range of colours, shades and composites to ensure it looks natural and in keeping with what you have in mind.

The main benefits are:

  1. Walk away with your smile in one visit!
  2. Usually no roughening or preparing of your natural teeth.
  3. A more affordable option compared to porcelain veneers.

Compound bonding
Composite bonding can be used on the tips of teeth where they are chipped, to close spaces, or even the cover the entire front surface of your teeth. Typically 4-6 composite veneers are done to the front teeth to give you a same day smile makeover.

Teeth can periodically chip and also crack over time. Tooth coloured composite filling material can be attached (bonded) to the cracked or fractured locations to restore the aesthetic look of them.

Sometimes teeth can emerge as well as are asymmetrical in shape and size. Orthodontics can fix the setting of teeth, however can not transform their shape. Frequently at the end of orthodontic treatment composite bonding is called for to fix these shape troubles.

When teeth have actually emerged, leaving spaces, it caused troubles with cleaning and cosmetically is not pleasing. composite bonding can fix these spacing concerns by symmetrically as well as proportionally enhancing the size of the teeth to close the rooms.

I am thrilled to express my immense gratitude for the exceptional care provided by Dr. orthodontist Suhaym Mubeen. The level of dedication, compassion, and professionalism exhibited by him surpasses all expectations. Dr. Suhaym's approach is marked by thoroughness, thoughtfulness, and meticulousness. His genuine concern for his patients is unparalleled. As a perfectionist, I greatly appreciated his unwavering attention to detail throughout my two-year treatment. His passion for his chosen profession is evident, and his involvement and care were nothing short of outstanding. One of the aspects that truly sets Dr. Suhaym apart is his willingness to take the time to explain each step of the treatment process, ensuring that I understood the purpose and benefits of every decision made. His explanations helped me make well-informed choices for my long-term oral health, instilling confidence and trust in his expertise. Every visit to Dr. Suhaym's office was a joyful experience, thanks not only to the exceptional services he provides but also to his exceptional team of colleagues, including the hygienists and general dentistry practitioners.

Just finished my final Invisalign session with orthodontist Suhaym Mubeen and felt compelled to leave a review after the incredible service I've received from him and his team over the past year. His diligence and attention to detail has been amazing and I am beyond happy with the results. He works and communicates with great clarity and care. And whilst he conducts himself very professionally, he does so with a warm, friendly energy that has honestly made the whole experience really nice. What a legend.

I received first class treatment from Dr. Ali. Dental treatment is never a pleasure but the process of installing an implant was virtually painless and the procedure was competently conducted.

Fantastic dentist practice. Ive had wisdom teeth problems for over 4 years and recently had a coronectomy on both sides at a NHS hospital near me. One side would not heal and I was in constant pain, I was told for 6 months that it has healed and the pain is jaw related and I should just continue with pain killers. I sent the photos and x-rays to Dr Ali and he was more than happy to walk me through what needed to be done and spent time listening to me and was genuinely interested in helping (and not in it for a profit as I've had in other private practices). I am now pain free after months of constant pain, and I am so grateful to Dr Ali and his team for their help.

It took seven weeks to go from smashed front teeth to veneers and a perfect smile thanks to Dr Ali and the team at Oak Hill Dental Practice. Eight weeks before my wedding I fell and suffered serious damage to my face and teeth. Over the following weeks and a series of appointments Dr Ali set about repairing the damage, each session gave me more hope that I’d have a toothy grin for my wedding photos. Dr Ali and the team were totally supportive and reassuring during the treatment. And the result of the dental work was amazing, I had to tell people I’d had an injury, they wouldn’t have known otherwise. I’m loathed to change dentists and despite moving away from the area I stayed with Oak Hill as I know they are great, that confidence paid off. I can thoroughly recommend the entire team at Oak Hill Dental Practice, you’ll be in good hands

After recently finishing a series of dental treatments, leading to the fitting of a new implant and two replacement crowns for my front teeth, I have nothing but the highest praise for the team at the Oak Hill Dental & Implant Centre. After the initial consultation, assessment, and CT scan - which revealed insufficient bone to take an implant - Dr Moshin Ali drafted an impressive four-phase plan which was described to me clearly and professionally and in a manner that put me completely at ease. The most daunting procedures - including both bone and gum grafting surgeries - went extremely well, and the aftercare was excellent with follow up calls from the doctor's reassuringly calm and efficient assistant, Mihaela. As we came towards the end of the treatments Moshin took a great deal of time and care to achieve a very natural look and I am delighted with the results. Kudos also to Steve and the other receptionists who are always most welcoming, patient and helpful when you arrive or call. I have no hesitation in recommending this practise. Thank you so much!
