Composite Bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic solution that can be used to completely transform your smile.
Composite bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that can transform your smile. A tooth-coloured composite material is applied to the surface of the tooth and moulded to suit the desired shape. We use this treatment to change the shape of the teeth, make them thinner, wider, longer and to close small gaps.
The finish of this treatment blends perfectly into your natural teeth. At Field House Dental Practice, we tend to use composite bonding as an alternative to veneers as the teeth aren’t damaged in any way.
Composite bonding treatment is often completed in just one visit. As it is non-invasive treatment, it is totally painless and often you will not need an anaesthetic.
You will walk away from the practice with a new and improved smile. It’s amazing how much of a change a small amount of bonding in the right places can make.
Composite bonding can last anywhere between five and ten years with good care. While bonding material has excellent strength, the material is not as strong as natural tooth enamel. You will have to take a little more care such as not biting sellotape with your front teeth. The really great thing about composite bonding is that it can be easily repaired by the dentist or therapist.
“For many years now I have been working to develop my skills rebuilding and enhancing the shape of teeth with composite resin. I use fine brushes to mould the material and to help me to simulate the natural lines and flow of tooth shapes. This helps me to change the way that the light falls on the teeth and can help to make them look longer, thinner, wider – whatever we need.
The thing I really love about composite bonding is that I don’t have to cut any tooth away to do it. It’s all additive. I’m just putting back what was there originally and has been lost or I’m just adding some enhancements. This means that I can enhance and change a patient’s smile without doing any damage. That floats my boat.” – Dr Chris Ibbott
Both myself and my wife came to Chris for teeth straightening after we missed out on having this done in our teens. We initially met with a couple of other local orthodontists and Chris stood out as being experienced and enthusiastic to help. I'm now very happy with the outcome and my wife (who's braces are due to be removed soon) is very happy with progress too. I also found the Fieldhouse reception team to be helpful and accommodating . Highly recommended. Thanks Chris.
I am absolutely delighted with the results. I just wish I had done it earlier in life! Thank you so much help and attention to detail throughout the whole process.
A few years ago, I had a lot of problems with my teeth. I was recommended Field House Dental Practice by a friend because they paid such good attention to her teeth, which had been in the same bad shape as mine were then. Moving to the practice was the best thing I ever did. Now my teeth are in really good condition and are cared for regularly. Recently I had a tooth fall out due to old problems (these things happen) and what excellent job they did on replacing it! The implant is fantastic and you wouldn't know it wasn't my own. Also, having spent years as a child having more fillings than I cared for, I used to be scared of going to the dentist, but the dentists - Chris and Janet Ibbot - both clearly explain what...
During a routine check-up, Chris informed me that two adjacent back teeth were showing signs of the old mercury amalgam fillings leaking into the teeth. He explained the consequences of this if left untreated, and recommended ceramic onlays as the most suitable way of saving the teeth from further deterioration and generally giving them a new lease of life. He also clearly explained the procedure including any possible snags as well as the cost, all of which I went away to consider for a few days before deciding to go ahead and booking the two quite lengthy appointments. The first to drill out the old fillings, generally prepare for the onlays and fit temporary fillings, and the second about a fortnight later to fit the onlays that had been made in a dental laboratory. I have been very satisfied with the...
