Your Patient Journey

Journey Icon

First Treatment Visit
If you are a new patient to Olive Tree Dental, a new patient exam is carried out first to ensure you are dentally fit for the treatment. Decay, infections, or gum disease will need to be treated prior to cosmetic dental treatment, such as composite bonding.

A comprehensive assessment is then undertaken. Digital scans and X-rays are taken to obtain measurements of your teeth and assess how best to proceed. Photos can be taken using a camera or our intra-oral camera to ensure we capture those before and after images so we can monitor the progress of the treatment when complete and see actual results.

Olive Tree Dental stand out as a practice that really takes the time to listen to its patients; we feel it’s really important to get to the heart of what you’re looking for from treatment such as composite bonding.

We will closely study your smile and the elements that make it unique to you so that we can gain valuable insight that will allow us to successfully plan your smile design. Your treatment will never be rushed, as we will always make sure you are happy before proceeding to the next stage of the process.

Treatment (second appointment)
Resin that matches your existing tooth shade is carefully layered, cured, sculpted and moulded to your teeth. A UV light is then applied to the resin hardening it. The tooth is then gently polished to ensure a smooth finish.

Aftercare
We recommend refraining from chewing vigorously for a couple of hours immediately after the treatment, after which you chew normally. Avoid teeth-staining food and drink to ensure the resins remain a healthy shade and bite on foreign objects (ice and pencils can often lead to chips!).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is Composite Bonding Better Than a Porcelain Veneer?

Veneers are generally the more durable option, and as they’re made from porcelain, they give a more toothlike result as they’re highly resistant to staining. Composite bonding, on the other hand, doesn’t involve any removal of the natural tooth structure. The process is straightforward and non-invasive, often does not require injections and can be achieved in one sitting.

Can Anyone Have Composite Bonding?

The ideal candidate for composite bonding is someone with good dental and oral health; therefore, we advise everyone to have a dental checkup so we can see if any treatment is required before we start the composite journey. Once we have established the teeth and gums are fit to go, we can continue with treatment. We carry out the process by adding resin and shaping it to the naturally healthy tooth.

How Long Does Composite Bonding Last For?

We never like to put an exact time frame on how long a treatment will last, as it depends on your diet and lifestyle. Generally speaking, composite bonding lasts between 3-5 years; however, if you look after them well, they can last for longer, especially if you opt for getting the recommended night guard.

How Do I Make Sure The Composite Remains In Good Condition?

You should be mindful of biting into hard and brittle foods (hard sweets, crunchy baguettes) directly on the composite bonded teeth. Even if they don’t chip, the composite could pick up micro-stress fractures, which over time, will weaken the bonding.

You should reduce the amount of teeth-staining food and drink such as red wines, teas and coffees, as the resins can pick up staining around the margins where it bonds to the teeth. Smoking can cause a lot of stubborn staining, so it is a good time to stop when considering composite bonding.

If the staining is caught early and is mild, the hygienist would be able to polish this off. If you’re a known clincher or grind your teeth (many of us do it without thinking), consider a soft guard to wear at night or at times in the day when you’re clenching most. We also recommend wearing a sports guard when partaking in contact sports.

I have been going to olive tree dental now, for about a year and a half. The service is always so friendly and they really help you make the best decision when it comes to your teeth. I have had Invisalign treatment with Patricia, which was exceptional.The regular hygienist appointments and general check ups are also very good, and the parking around the dentist is excellent. I would highly recommend going here.read more

From the first step through the door it felt far removed from the standard clinical feel of any dentist I had been to previously. Not only are the offices beautifully decorated and the staff welcoming and friendly but the resulting impression from my first appointment was one of confidence instead of fear. Dr Zyada was very thorough in her checks and took the time to go through each and every tooth to explain exactly what needed to be done and why. It makes the return appointment a lot less daunting, thank you. Would definitely recommend Olive Tree Dental.read more

The team at Olive Tree Dental are great! My dentist was very thorough and took the time to patiently explain her findings and what would be required for future visits. Like most people I don't enjoy going to the dentist, but the team made it as comfortable as possible. The rooms were really clean too!read more

Olive Tree Dental are a fantastic dental practice. All of their staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I was given an appointment here with Smile White UK teeth whitening and the dentist was lovely! She was great at advising me in detail how to use the teeth whitening for my teeth, as they are particularly sensitive. I would definitely recommend them.read more

I went to Olive Tree Dental Clinic few times for teeth cleaning, emergency dental work and consultations. The clinic was very clean and inviting, stuff was very friendly and dentist was very gentle and reassuring. I appreciated the fact that she was communicating with me during the procedures so I wasn’t wondering what’s going on or when it will finish. I’ve been to quite a few dental clinics previously but never felt as valued and welcomed, and never got such high quality dental service. Highly recommend it to anyone and especially to those who feel nervous and anxious when visiting dentist. I feel lucky to live nearby!read more
