Case of the Month October 2021- Invisalign, whitening and bonding

Invisalign Lite, Phillips Zoom whitening and Cosmetic Bonding

Our case of the month for October was a simple yet effective one involving three of our favourite techniques: Invisalign, tooth whitening and cosmetic bonding.

Crowding of teeth is so common, we would probably say the majority of the population suffer some form of mis alignment of some sort. Luckily, modern day treatments mean that teeth straightening is actually a simply and pain free process. In our case, we used Invisalign Lite which is the 'middle of the road' version which typically takes less than 6 months. We have access to 14 initial aligners and then 2 sets of additional sets of up to 14 each for fine tuning.

Once this was complete, tooth whitening was done at home using our favoured Zoom gel followed by some expert cosmetic bonding. All treatment was carried out by Dr Nissit Patel. Please take a look at the before and after photos. Quite a transformation!

Before Invisalign

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 desir… READ MORE

Invisalign Lite - a guide to treatment and costs

Invisalign is the world's most well known clear aligner orthodontic treatment. However, not many people know about the history of Invisalign and how it all came about.

Case of the month June 2021- closing space with bonding

Our case of the month for June 2021 was one where spaces were closed using cosmetic bonding or teeth bonding. Often there are spaces between teeth which are either natural, developmental, after orthodontic treatment or following a trauma. One of the simplest ways to close the spaces is via bonding. Tooth bonding is a non invasive treatment where the tooth is added to using composite white filling material. In the case of closing gaps, there is absolutely no need to cut the tooth at all. The treatment is car… READ MORE
