How much does composite bonding cost and how is it priced?


How I Price Composite Bonding: Understanding the Cost at Dr. Andrew Culbard’s Clinic in Glasgow

On average in Scotland, composite bonding costs between £200 – £350 per tooth, however every clinic will have a different method of pricing composite bonding and veneers, and price will generally be determined by the experience of the clinician and the demand for the procedure. 

Pricing composite bonding can vary depending on the complexity of the treatment and the individual needs of each patient. At Dr. Andrew Culbard’s clinic in Glasgow, we strive to offer transparent and fair pricing for all our dental services. In this blog post, I’ll explain our pricing structure for composite bonding and composite veneers and the factors that may influence the final cost.

Simple Pricing Structure: Price Per Tooth

For straightforward cases, our pricing for composite bonding is based on a “price per tooth” system. This tiered approach helps us provide a clear and concise cost estimate for our patients.

  • Minor Tweaks: Starting at £250-£330 per tooth. This is ideal for small adjustments and minor cosmetic enhancements.
  • Full 3D Composite Veneer: Priced at £385 per tooth. This option covers more extensive work, including reshaping and relayering for a complete veneer transformation.

Comprehensive Treatment Plans

Many patients present with a combination of dental health, functional, and aesthetic challenges. In such cases, a more comprehensive approach is required, which may involve several stages of treatment before the composite bonding can be applied. Here’s a breakdown of our process:

Full Dental Health and Functional Examination

  • During the first visit, we conduct a thorough examination of your dental health. This includes checking for any underlying issues that need to be addressed before composite bonding can be considered.
  • We take detailed records, including photographs, x-rays, and impressions, to ensure a complete understanding of your dental condition.
  • Based on this examination, we develop a comprehensive treatment plan that outlines the necessary steps and associated costs.

Stabilisation of Dental Disease

Before proceeding with composite bonding, it’s crucial to stabilise any existing dental diseases. This includes:

  • Gum Health Issues: Addressing gingivitis, periodontitis, and other gum-related problems.
  • Dental Decay: Treating cavities and other forms of tooth decay to ensure a healthy foundation for composite bonding.

Recognition of Functional Challenges

We assess and address any functional challenges that could impact the success of composite bonding, such as:

  • Unstable Bite: Correcting bite issues to ensure proper alignment and function.
  • Habits: Identifying and managing habits like teeth grinding (bruxism) that can affect the longevity of composite bonding.
  • Misalignment of Teeth: Evaluating and treating misalignment issues that may require orthodontic intervention before bonding.

Custom Treatment Plan

We ensure that all dental health and functional challenges are addressed, providing a solid foundation for successful composite bonding. The custom treatment plan includes all necessary pre-treatments and their associated costs.

Tooth Whitening and Composite Bonding

Finally, we proceed with tooth whitening and composite bonding to complete the ideal functional and aesthetic outcome:

  • Tooth Whitening: Performed to ensure a bright, uniform base for the composite bonding, enhancing the overall appearance of your smile.
  • Composite Bonding: Applied to achieve the desired shape, size, and color of your teeth, completing the smile transformation.

Aftercare and Maintenance

We provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you maintain your new smile. Regular check-ups are recommended to monitor the condition of the composite bonding and address any issues promptly.
