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 …
Our case of the month for September 2021 was a simply stunning one using ultra minimally invasive E max veneers. Our client disliked her front teeth composite bonding which had discoloured, worn and chipped over time. Although teeth bonding is a superb treatment, there are disadvantages compared to porcelain such as those mentioned above. Porcelain will not stain or change colour and it is far more durable than composite. However, in the past, porcelain needed considerable preparation to create space for th…
Our case of the month for last month is a stunning case which involves a smile transformation using three techniques:1. Lingual Braces2. Tooth whitening using a take home whitening kit 3. Cosmetic bonding We like to call this a Progressive Smile transformation as there is no drilling, no injections, no pain and the process is affordable and easy to maintain. In contrast to porcelain veneers or crowns which require drilling away of healthy tooth enamel to cover the teeth with the ceramic. Granted, this may l… READ MORE
Time has flown by and we forgot to post our case of the month for December so we have decided to combine them with a tremendous case study involving a complete smile transformation. Our client really hated her smile. The main issues were that the smile was not wide enough, the back teeth caved in so that they were not visible on photos and the bite was all over the place. As well as teeth crowding and an overall yellow shade, so a number of aesthetic problems. After careful planning, which is always the key… READ MORE
Our case of the month for November is cosmetic bonding or teeth bonding which is one of our favourite treatments. For those of you unaware of the process, let us explain for you. The Process of Cosmetic Bonding Essentially, the process is completely pain free. There is no cutting of the teeth so the underlying tooth enamel is left completely intact. Now this is a huge advantage! Removing tooth enamel removes the hardest tissue in the body and weakens the tooth considerably. There is no going back. Over time… READ MORE
It's the end of October and we have not posted our case of the month for September! We have so busy and time flies but here it is; a fabulous case involving Phillips ZOOM tooth whitening followed by bonding or cosmetic bonding.There are so many tooth whitening options at the moment that it can be confusing which one to choose. In general, all whitening systems involve the use of hydrogen peroxide usually at a concentration of 6%. In the past, we were able to use 35% or even greater but due to EU legislation… READ MORE
Time is flying by! Kids are back in school, days are getting shorter but at least the sun is still shining. We have been so busy, that we have not posted our case of the month for August. However, the wait has been well worth it with a superb smile transformation using Invisalign clear braces, tooth whitening and cosmetic bonding or teeth bonding. Initially, our patient came to us with quite short, yellow and crowded teeth. The brief was to be as minimal as possible and try to maintain the teeth as much as … READ MORE
Our case of the month for February 2020 involves using one of our favourite teeth straightening options- the Social 6 lingual brace and teeth bonding to correct asymmetry.
The treatment was completed by Dr Nissit Patel who comments: ' Over many years of being a dentist, I have realised how important it is to have teeth in the correct position before attempting any form of cosmetic dentistry. There are many benefits of this. Ultimately, if the front teeth are properly aligned then the following cosmetic den… READ MORE
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… READ MORE
Time has certainly flown by and we are now in full swing into a new decade! We forgot to posy our case of the month for December but it is one worth waiting for. The case involves ICON treatment to treat very opaque white areas on the upper front central teeth.
Now white areas on teeth are generally not a biological issue but they can be unsightly and have an affect on smiling with confidence. In the past, the treatment for such areas was to cut away the whiter area and then place a filling to mimic the ad… READ MORE
