I have had profile balancing with Tara and I can honestly say it's been life changing. I no longer hesitate to do anything, I do not think about hiding my face when I smile or laugh or from the side. I only wish I had had the treatment done long ago. The new clinic is beautiful 😍 Tara is amazing she puts you at ease there is no pressure to treat and explains everything treatment is virtually pain free and only the teeniest of bruising. Emma on reception is wonderful very welcoming and makes you feel relaxed. I can not wait to get a few more tweaks.

I visited Tara and the clinic for my first time at ever having dermal filler. Tara is absolutely amazing at what she does, she made me feel so unbelievably comfortable and my results are so naturally amazing. She has really boosted my confidence and I knew I was in such safe hands. I cant wait to see her again in a few months time, and I also cant wait to visit the clinic for additional services. The clinic is absolutely amazing and as soon as you step in side, you feel so welcome. I cant thank her enough! I couldn't of wished for more, she is an absolute perfectionist at what she does and I am so grateful for finding her.

Dr. Tara and the team have always taken very good care of me. She has always been very attentive to my concerns and made me feel at ease during and after all my treatments. It can be daunting to go through with fillers but she has always made me feel safe & is very skilled at what she does. She is always there to provide help and advice post-treatment too, should you have any concerns. Her dedication to her craft and her patients shows through her work and the amazing service she provides. Thank you so much for all that you’ve done for me Tara, couldn’t recommend highly enough!x

What Is Composite Bonding ?

Composite bonding for teeth is a simple procedure involving a dentist using composite resin – the same substance used for composite fillings – to reshape a tooth. This allows dentists to sculpt your perfect smile without invasive surgery or lengthy processes.

Your dentist will use the resin to build up your teeth, transforming a cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged tooth into something that looks as good as new. Composite bonding can also be used to fill gaps in teeth and correct colour, making it a powerful tool for those looking to enhance the aesthetic appeal of their smile.

Composite bonding is a completely safe process and is entirely pain-free. Also, despite some rumors to the contrary, composite bonding will not damage your teeth or enamel in any way. The composite resin is non-destructive, and you can be sure we wouldn’t use this well-practiced and highly trusted procedure if we had any doubts about its safety.

Benefits of Composite Bonding

There are several benefits to Composite Bonding, which is why it’s such a popular option with many patients in our London practice. We’ve gone over just a few of the Composite Bonding benefits below.

Low Cost

Composite bonding is often the most affordable way to get the smile you’re looking for. In fact, when compared to treatments like crowns and veneers, the cost is dramatically lower. This is because composite bonding is a relatively simple procedure that doesn’t require multiple visits to the practice.

Quick Procedure

The entire composite bonding procedure can be done in one visit to our practice. Other procedures usually require some preparation before the treatment starts, but composite bonding for teeth can be carried out almost immediately. After just one visit, you’ll walk away with a vastly improved smile.

Entirely Painless

Dental bonding for teeth is an entirely painless procedure without any invasive surgery. Instead, the bonding resin is laid onto a film applied to the surface of the teeth. This process requires no anesthesia, and there’s no pain after the procedure either. Some minor discomfort might be experienced, but this will go away quickly.

Natural Looking

The bonding resin used is the same colour as your teeth, meaning that after the procedure you’re left with a perfectly natural look. However, if you are planning on teeth whitening, we’d recommend whitening first before then having the composite bonding treatment. This will lead to the most natural-looking results.

Composite Bonding Treatment Journey

Your Implant Retained Dentures treatment will be tailored to your exact requirements; therefore, one treatment can be very different from the next. However, we’ve provided a basic overview of a Implant Retained Dentures below.

First step


The bonding resin used is the same colour as your teeth, meaning that after the procedure you’re left with a perfectly natural look. However, if you are planning on teeth whitening, we’d recommend whitening first before then having the composite bonding treatment. This will lead to the most natural-looking results.

second step


During the consultation, our experienced dentist will examine your teeth, discuss your goals and concerns, and determine if dental composite bonding is the right option for you.

third step


The composite resin is carefully applied to the tooth, layer by layer, and molded to achieve the desired shape and contour. A special curing light is used to harden the material, and any necessary adjustments are made for a perfect fit.

When you are done


Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily.
Avoid habits that may cause damage, such as biting on hard objects or opening packages with your teeth.

After Care of Composite Bonding

Work hard to look after your teeth

Once you’ve had the composite bonding treatment, you must work hard to look after your teeth. If you don’t, they could become stained or damaged, resulting in a smile you’re no longer proud of.

After The Treatment

You must refrain from doing anything that might stain the resin for at least 48 hours after the treatment. This means no drinking coffee, tea, cola, and more, and no smoking. Fail to follow this rule and the resin could become discoloured.

Stop Biting Anything Hard

You should also stop biting anything hard that might chip the resin, and this means biting nails and pen lids are out of the question. You should also avoid chewing with your front teeth if you’ve had dental bonding applied to them.

Keeping Proper Oral Hygiene

The final rule to follow is one that everyone should remember: always maintain excellent oral hygiene. This means that you must brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes a time, and you should aim to floss at least once a day. You should also see one of our dental hygienists regularly.

Meet The Dental Team


I have now visited Twoth on three different occasion... The first time was to take my son (8 years old) to see Dr Counihan for a braces consultation and my son absolutely loved the entire experience from start to finish. In fact, he was so excited and relaxed about it all he wanted to get started immediately.

The second time around, I went to see Dr Counihan myself for a second opinion and found the experience just as good as my son did

Karin Thyselius

Before I found Dr Neil Counihan I had a long history of dental trauma and sadly I repeatedly was subjected to very poor dentistry. I was scared to let anybody near my mouth and teeth. I had lost hope!

Dr Counihan made me the promise, with the right care I can keep my mouth healthy and definitely keep my teeth for the rest of my life.

And most importantly he made me feel safe and listened to

Frequently Asked Questions

Find the answer to the most common questions. Everything you need to know about Composite Bonding.

Composite bonding is a technique whereby the dentist applies composite resin to the tooth, using the resin to cover cracks, repair chips, and remove gaps. Composite bonding can also reshape teeth for a more aesthetically appealing look. It is a simple and effective procedure for those with minor dental problems, plus the cost of composite bonding is a fraction of the cost of other procedures. It is designed to match the colour and shade of your teeth, leading to a perfectly natural-looking smile.

Unlike many other dental procedures composite bonding can be completed in one session. During this session, the dentist will prepare the tooth and apply the resin until the desired result is achieved. You will then be able to go home with a transformed smile.

Many choose to combine composite bonding with teeth whitening. In this case, we recommend going through the teeth whitening process first, which can take a few weeks, meaning the path to your perfect smile is somewhat longer.

Composite bonding is not a permanent solution, but you should expect your resin to remain in place for at least five years and sometimes up to ten years. Alternative treatments, such as veneers, last much longer but cost significantly more.

It is essential to care correctly for your teeth to maximise the length of time your composite bonding lasts. Avoid food and drink that can stain your teeth for a couple of days after the procedure, along with smoking. Also, practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly.

Composite bonding does not damage your teeth – this is a false and unfounded rumour. Over time, the resin itself could become slightly damaged due to wear and tear, but the tooth underneath the resin will remain perfectly fine.

The tooth remains completely safe thanks to the fine film placed over the tooth, which protects the tooth from any stray gum or resin. We would not use a procedure if it damaged your teeth in any way.

The entire tooth bonding procedure is painless, which is one of the main reasons for its huge popularity. You will not need to have any anaesthetic before the procedure, and there is none of the invasiveness seen in other dental treatments.

While painless, the sensation caused by the newly shaped tooth after the procedure might seem a little unusual. However, this sensation should go away quickly as you become used to the new addition to your mouth.

Composite bonding looks perfectly natural. Before any work starts, your dentist will spend time creating resin of the perfect shade, which identically matches the other teeth in your mouth. Once you have had the procedure, you won’t be able to notice the difference between teeth and resin.

However it is possible to stain your resin, mainly just after it has been applied, which will make the affected area stand out. This is why we recommend avoiding coffee, tea, and other foods and drinks that can stain for two days after visiting the dentist.

You can certainly brush your teeth after composite bonding. Using a toothbrush will not damage the resin in any way and will help ensure it retains its original colour. We also recommend that you floss your teeth once a day, plus use mouthwash if desired.

You should also have your teeth cleaned by a professional regularly. This is a service we offer here at Twoth, and it will keep your composite bonding looking great for as long as possible. Please speak to a team member to book an appointment with a dental hygienist.

If you want to whiten your teeth, you should do so before you have composite bonding. This is because the dentist will match the shade of your bonding to your teeth, so if you whiten your teeth after the procedure, the resin will look a different colour and stand out.

If you want to combine teeth whitening with composite bonding, you can get both procedures here at Twoth. Please speak to one of our friendly team members to find out how to combine both procedures.
