Case of the Month January 2020- Social 6 lingual brace

2020 is flying by and January has thankfully passed with slightly longer days ahead of us. Our case of the month for January involves a simple yet effective one using the Social 6 lingual brace to make one tooth more visible on smiling. Often we seen huge dental transformations where there is huge difference in the overall smile with multiple veneers, crowns and crazy white shades that resemble white goods rather than teeth! This is not our style. For those of you that read our blog, you will know that we strongly believe in minimally invasive dentistry that looks natural, highly aesthetic and lasts a long time. Our case involves one using the Social 6 lingual brace (one of our favourite treatments), to align one tooth and dramatically change the smile in just 3 months. Here are the before and after photos:

Back in line!

Lingual braces are ideal if you do not wish for braces to be seen during treatment. In fact, they can be considered the only truly invisible brace. Whether you are a young professional working in the City of London or someone who is enjoying a well deserved retirement, looking like a teenager with metal train tracks is probably not ideal! In most cases, Social 6 lingual braces take 3-4 months only; another huge advantage. After all, time is precious. Give us a call if you would like to change your smile this year. Treatment completed by Dr Nissit Patel using 2-D brackets.

This is not desir… 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
