Similar to veneers, composite bonding is designed to enhance the natural shape of your teeth: “[It’s] a convenient and cost- effective treatment, which involves applying a tooth-coloured composite resin to the surface of the enamel,” explains Dr Kinsella. “How long they last depends on how well you take care of them,” adds Dr Mawson. “Be prepared to have them replaced once every three years, however they can last significantly longer. It is often a cosmetic failure when you’re no longer happy with how they look, as they may dull over time.” Not ready to commit? “I would encourage anyone to have a ‘trial smile’ before committing. It is where we can apply the composite to the teeth without bonding it, so we can see how it will look beforehand.” composite bonding 3/ SPOTLIGHT ORAL CA RE White Teeth Wash 500ml / £12.99 3 4 4/ ORAL-B Genius 8000 Electric Toothbrush – Black £280 INSIDE OUT
