Our case study is one involving cosmetic bonding of the front teeth. Cosmetic bonding is the NON INVASIVE answer to repair worn, fractured or spaced teeth. The technique requires no drilling, no needles and no pain! Our patient was unhappy about her front teeth due to the severe wear present at the edges. This was due to night time grinding, which is a very common problem. Dr Nissit Patel strongly believes in minimally invasive dentistry and therefore ruled out porcelain veneers or similar techniques which remove healthy tooth enamel. Cosmetic bonding was prescribed and the results can be seen below:
The treatment was completed in one session using G-aenial composite by GC. This is one of the most advanced composites available which we endorse highly. The process is simple. Here are the steps: 1. The teeth are cleaned and polished. It is advised that you visit Jenny our hygienist prior to cosmetic bonding. If you have considered tooth whitening, then it is best to do this before so that the shade can be matched. 2. The teeth are etched with a special gel to create a good bonding surface and a resin bonding agent is brushed on to the teeth. 3. A highly aesthetic composite is placed in layers to recreate the natural appearance of the teeth. 4. The bite is checked and any necessary adjustments are made. 5. The bonding is polished to a high gloss finish. 6. That's it! Simple but highly effective. If you have worn teeth, fractured edges or minor spaces present then cosmetic bonding could be for you. Do NOT consider invasive treatments such as porcelain veneers or crowns without first contacting us.
