Case of the Month August 2021- Social 6 lingual brace, teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding

Our case of the month for August was a straight forward one but effective. In many cases, we get asked to correct one or two teeth which really bothers our patient. Most of the time, this is perfectly feasible using modern day cosmetic dental techniques such as lingual braces and cosmetic bonding.

For our case, one tooth had slipped behind the others and was in cross bite with the lower teeth. This is where the upper tooth actually sits on the inside surface of the lower tooth when closed. This is not desirable aesthetically nor functionally. One tooth in cross bite will often wear at a greater rate and can interfere with the bite.

To keep things really simple, we used a Social 6 lingual brace to correct the tooth and place it back to the normal position. As mentioned above, due to wear, it was much shorter than the adjacent teeth. However, with some snazzy cosmetic bonding using our own techniques and polishing methods, we had a life like tooth back again which looked as good as new.


The Social 6 lingual brace took around three months. After some home whitening , the cosmetic bonding can be completed in one session. Therefore a total treatment time of less than four months and at a cost of less than £2000.

The treatment is car… READ MORE

Our case of the month for May 2021 was a simple one involving ICON to treat a white spot and then cosmetic bonding to repair a small chip.

The treatment in our case is completely non invasive. There is no need for any drilling, no needles of any sort and no pain! Furthermore, the cost is affordable compared to tradi… READ MORE

Case of the Month March 2021- Cosmetic Bonding

Our case of the month for March is a simple but great one- we love it so much! It features cosmetic bonding which is a favourite treatment of ours. People often ask what is cosmetic or composite bonding. Well the answer is simple. For many years, dentists have been using adhesive technology to bond fillings inside of teeth. The same technology can be applied to the outside of teeth to make them look pretty! In essence, if a tooth is worn down, fractured, uneven or discoloured then composite bonding can be u… READ MORE
