Case of the month November 2020- Cosmetic Bonding

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

Case of the Month- November 2019

Our case of the month for November involves a re construction of the bite over a number of years. The main reason for treatment was due to severe tooth wear due to bruxism. Bruxism is essentially grinding at night to such an extent that the enamel is worn over a number of years. This can cause a number of problems such as: Tooth sensitivity Difficulty in eating Lack of a coherent bite Aesthetic issues Pain leading to root canal treatment in severe cases Tooth wear, on the whole, can be prevented or… READ MORE

Minimally Invasive Dentistry 2017

As you may be aware, our ethos is based on minimally invasive dentistry. Preserving tooth and gum is key to a healthy mouth. Why remove what nature provided us with? In the past, tooth decay would lead to large amounts of tooth being cut away so that amalgam metal fillings could be packed into the cavity. When we say packed, this is exactly what we mean. Amalgam does not bond to tooth. Therefore the tooth has to be cut with an undercut- the base of the cavity being narrower than the top so that the filling… 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

Cosmetic Bonding- the modern way to enhance teeth

You may not have heard of cosmetic bonding. What is it? In simple terms, it involves enhancing teeth with adhesive dentistry using high tech white filling material. The major benefit of the treatment is that it is minimally invasive. There is no drilling of the underlying tooth, no need for needles, no pain and it is far more affordable than porcelain veneers. Is the time for porcelain veneers over? Not really. Porcelain is still the most highly aesthetic material available and it is extremely durable. If … READ MORE
