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 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

Case of the Month February 2021

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

Case of the Month January 2020- Social 6 lingual brace

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

Case of the Month May 2019

Our case of the month for May involves a stunning smile transformation with a combination treatment involving lingual braces, teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Here is a photograph of the initial appearance: A pre treatment smiling photograph Here we can see slightly crooked front teeth and short lateral incisor teeth (second ones from the front). These teeth had porcelain veneers which were very bulky as the teeth were set behind the central teeth. This never works very well as the overall aesthet… READ MORE

Case of the Month July 2018

Our case of the month for July 2018 involves teeth straightening using lingual braces. Lingual braces are placed on the inside of the teeth rather than on the outside, which makes them the only INVISIBLE brace. If you dread the thought of traditional metal train tracks or just could not commit to the regimented regime of Invisalign, this could be the technique for you. Here is our case: Before lingual braces; the upper lateral teeth are slightly behind the central and the lower teeth are heavily crowded… READ MORE

Lingual Braces - Case of the Month - September 2017

Our case of the month for September 2017 is a wonderful teeth straightening case using one of our favourite braces- Social 6 lingual brace. Lingual braces are placed on the INSIDE of your teeth which means it is the only invisible brace treatment available. Other techniques such as Invisalign or Six Month Smiles may say their treatment is discreet but there is only one truly invisible brace. Aside from this, most treatments are incredibly quick. We have found the average time to be 3-4 months. This really f… READ MORE

Case of the Month February 2017- ABC

Our case of the month for February is simply incredible. As you may know, we practice minimally invasive dentistry or MI dentistry. The philosophy of this is to be as minimal as possible, preserve what nature gave use and enhance rather than destroy. Smile design and makeovers in the past involved major destruction of the teeth. You only had to watch 'Extreme Makeover' to see how teeth were cut into little pegs and the smile transformed with porcelain veneers. Will this last a life time? We think not; simp… READ MORE

The very best cosmetic dentistry in London?

We would like to think we are one of London's best cosmetic and general dentists. Our ethos is minimally invasive, kind dentistry that promotes healing and is biocompatible with the human body. The the past, cosmetic dentistry meant one thing- the Hollywood smile and cutting down teeth for super white veneers. Those days have past thankfully. Modern day dental care means that we can transform a smile without cutting, drilling, needles and any pain. What's more, these techniques are far less costly. No brai… READ MORE
