Repairing a Chipped Tooth in Leeds

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Beautiful young lady smilingChips can affect the overall look of your smile, as well as making the teeth weaker and more vulnerable to injury. Thankfully, we can provide a quick, safe and simple solution: composite bonding.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is a cosmetic procedure that also has restorative benefits for the teeth. The process involves using dental composite, which is also used to fill cavities, to repair chips, build up worn surfaces and close small gaps between the teeth.

During the procedure, your dentist uses skill and experience to mould the composite, which is a putty-like consistency. The changes that are made to individual teeth are often minor and the procedure only takes one hour, but the overall impact of treatment is amazing.

The procedure

Before composite material is applied to the teeth, the teeth are prepared. This involves buffing and roughening up the surfaces and then applying primers and resins to the tooth. Your dentist will then apply the composite, which will be matched to the shade of your natural teeth, and shape it.

Once your dentist is happy with the placement of the composite, they will shine an intensive ray of light onto it to make it hard and firm. Once the composite is hard, it is strong and durable and should last for a long time.

In most cases, there is no need for anaesthetic during treatment and the procedure is not painful. The preparation stage may feel a little odd, but it should not be sore and you will not experience any pain after treatment either.

Benefits of composite bonding

Composite bonding can create amazing aesthetics and boost confidence and the procedure is safe, quick and affordable. This is also a versatile treatment, which is suitable for a wide range of patients and the results are amazing after just an hour in the dental chair.

Restore Your Smile With Composite Bonding

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

2904346_blogComposite bonding, also known as cosmetic bonding, is a very effective treatment used to repair damaged teeth. This treatment is simple, quick and affordable, yet it can make a massive difference to the look of your smile. If you’ve put up with chipped or worn teeth for too long, now is the perfect time to call us and find out more about composite bonding.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that also has restorative benefits for your teeth. Dental composite is used to repair damaged teeth. In its putty-like form, it can be shaped and moulded to repair chipped teeth, build-up worn tooth surfaces and even close the gap between two teeth. Your City Dental Dentist will use their creative flair and experience to create amazing results using dental composite and once they are happy with the look of your new smile, the composite will be hardened before final touches are made.

Before bonding, your dentist will clean the affected teeth, roughen the edges and apply resin and bonding agent to ensure that the composite will bond properly. The composite is then added and set hard using a curing light. After final adjustments have been made, your dentist will give your teeth a polish to ensure you leave with a gleaming smile.

Composite bonding usually takes less than an hour and only a single appointment is required. The procedure is painless and most patients do not require local anaesthetic.

Who can benefit from composite bonding?

Composite bonding is an ideal treatment for patients who have chipped teeth, worn teeth or a small gap between two of their teeth. This is a more affordable option than veneers and it is also quicker and more straight-forward.


Are There Cheaper Alternatives To Veneers?

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

1050560_blogVeneers are often associated with the rich and famous and although prices are more competitive than ever before, there may be some cheaper solutions worth considering if you are eager to improve the look of your smile.

About veneers

Veneers are light tooth-shaped shells, which are usually made from porcelain; they are placed on your natural teeth to hide a wide range of cosmetic flaws, from uneven and worn down teeth to chips and staining. There are various different types of veneers available and you can customise your new look by selecting different shades and shapes. Veneer treatment usually involves 2 or 3 sessions around 2-4 weeks apart.

What are the alternatives?

The alternative options tend to depend on why you are thinking about veneers and what kinds of aesthetic issues you wish to address. If you have discoloured teeth, for example, tooth whitening is a more affordable option than veneers. There are different types of whitening treatment available, including home whitening systems and in-chair treatments and the cost is usually around £100-£600. Treatment is usually completed in around 2 weeks, the results are visible straightaway and they should last for several years. Whitening treatment is a safe, simple and painless way of giving your smile that added sparkle.

If you have chipped, worn or misshapen teeth, which look unsightly, you may wish to think about cosmetic bonding, also known as composite bonding. This procedure takes just one hour and it’s painless, so you won’t need to worry about injections or that horrible numb feeling in your mouth. Bonding can be used to reshape and repair the teeth and also to reduce the size of spaces between the teeth as a cheaper alternative to orthodontic braces. Your dentist will use dental composite, which is also used to fill cavities, to carry out minor repairs and adjustments; at room temperature, the composite is soft and this means that it can be shaped easily. When your dentist is happy with the placement of the composite, they will then harden it using a curing light; this only takes a minute and all you have to do is wear some protective goggles and relax. The average cost is around £60-£120.

With cosmetic bonding, we can transform the appearance of your teeth in no time at all!

About cosmetic bonding

Cosmetic bonding, also known as composite bonding, is an aesthetic technique, which uses a material known as dental composite to change the shape and appearance of the individual teeth to create a beautiful, healthy looking smile. Dental composite is also used for white fillings and it has a putty-like consistency at room temperature; this means that it can be shaped and altered to fit gaps and carry out basic repairs. We are able to use this simple and painless technique to repair chips, build up worn edges, alter the shape of the teeth and even reduce the size of gaps between the teeth.

The process

Cosmetic bonding is a straightforward and pain-free procedure, which can usually be completed in just an hour. Your dentist will start by selecting the closes shade match so that the composite matches your natural tooth colour; they will then prepare your teeth and apply the composite, shaping and moulding it to create the perfect aesthetic. When your dentist is happy with the placement of the composite, they will ask you to put on a pair of goggles for a minute and shine a curing light onto the composite. This hardens and sets the composite; once this stage is complete, your dentist will then carry out any final modifications to ensure the perfect new look.

The benefits

Cosmetic bonding is one of the most affordable, effective and fastest ways to improve the look of your smile. It is a versatile treatment and you will be able to enjoy the benefits immediately. There’s no pain involved, so you won’t need any injections and the results should last for years to come.
