Cosmetic Bonding

Our case study today is on cosmetic bonding. For those of you who are unaware of the process of cosmetic bonding, here is a recap: 1. It is a completely NON invasive treatment for chipped, fractured, spaced and uneven teeth. 2. It is additive i.e we bond to the natural tooth surface 3. There is no need for any drilling of the underlying tooth 4. There is no need for any needles or injections 5. It is far more affordable than traditional treatments such as porcelain veneers 6. It is easy to maintain 7. It is reversible Just take a look at our photographs:

Gaps in teeth Spaces present between the front teeth
Straight teeth No more spaces! Treatment in just 60 minutes

As you can see, the cosmetic bonding is barely visible. The treatment was completed in just 60 minutes. Of course, cosmetic bonding is not a replacement for porcelain veneers and although the appearance is great, we cannot replicate the glossy shine of porcelain! We would say a matt finish instead. However, there are major advantages and we would always advise starting with bonding if at all possible. If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, especially non invasive treatments, please contact us. Treatment undertaken by Dr Nissit Patel using G-aenial composite by GC.

Case of the Month August 2021- Social 6 lingual brace, teeth whitening 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

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
