Case of the month- September 2013

Our case of the month for September is a classic cosmetic bonding case. For those of you that do not know about cosmetic bonding, it is a great technique to enhance a tooth with a completely NON INVASIVE approach. Teeth can be lengthened, widened, repaired, made symmetrical and gaps closed with this wonderful technique. In virtually all cases, there is NO need for any drilling, any anaesthetic (no needles!) and no unnecessary removal of healthy tooth enamel. Our case shows a typical scenario where a tooth is worn and chipped. The procedure took just 45 minutes and just look at the difference.

Cosmetic bonding, repaired tooth, symmetrical tooth Cosmetic bonding- the tooth has been restored back to its original size.

This procedure was undertaken by Dr Nissit Patel and took just 45 minutes. He was even able to add characteristics to the bonding to mimic the adjacent teeth. Note the opaque areas at the tips. It is this attention to detail which produces such a great result.The composite used was GC G-aenial, one of the best products on the dental market. If you have worn, fractured, broken or simply small teeth and would like a non invasive approach to enhance them, then cosmetic bonding could be for you. Call us today.

Case of the Month October 2021- Invisalign, whitening and 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 … READ MORE

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

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

Case of the Month May 2021- ICON and cosmetic bonding

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. Initially. we used Invisalign Express to treat some mild mis alignment. Putting teeth in the correct position will mean that that any future treatment will always look better especially bonding. 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
