Cost FAQs

How much does composite bonding cost in the UK?

Composite bonding in 2022-2023 cost, on average, £250-£350 per tooth in the UK. 2024 price updates will see composite bonding charged at a slightly higher price, where patients can expect to pay anywhere from £300 to £450 per tooth to fix chips or gaps between teeth.

How much does composite bonding cost per tooth?

Composite is charged by the tooth and not by appointment, which means patients should expect costs of £300-£450 per tooth. However, particular private dentists might offer discounts for a certain number of teeth.

How long does composite bonding last?

Patients can typically expect composite to last anywhere from four to eight years and perhaps even longer with the right care. How long the composite resin lasts will depend on the tooth’s location, the extent of the damage, and your oral hygiene routine and habits.

Is composite bonding worth the price?

When it comes to cost-effective cosmetic solutions for repairing chips and gaps, composite bonding is worth its weight in gold. It’s fast – taking one appointment, long-lasting and non-invasive. However, if you have a larger aesthetic problem, opting for veneers like composite or even porcelain might be better and more cost-effective.

Does the NHS cover composite bonding?

Composite bonding is largely available through private practices across the UK. As a cosmetic procedure, it is not offered by the NHS, but it is available at our clinic via 0% finance over 24 months, which means it is not free for any patient in the UK.

Why do the fees differ?

The costs for composite bonding vary from private practice to private practice because the price is mostly based on the cosmetic dentist’s skill, expertise and experience, not to mention their location, as certain cities like London will have higher overhead costs.

Composite bonding on finance - pay monthly instead

Say, the most expensive bonding is £450. Using 24 months of finance with zero per cent interest, patients can expect to pay £18.75 over 24 months or £37.50 over 12 months with no additional cost of credit. Learn more about finance.

Financing composite veneers instead

Composite veneers cost £500 per tooth.

Composite veneers over the entire tooth’s surface, whereas composite bonding is directly applied to a certain area of the tooth to fix the imperfection rather than reshape or size the tooth.

As composite veneers change the look of the entire tooth, they’re more expensive as they use more material. Composite bonding generally costs less than veneers and will be the better option for minor changes.
