How we can sculpt your perfect smile

It’s very rare to have a perfectly formed set of pearly whites and to be able to keep your smile in pristine condition. Although your teeth are strong and robust, the risk of injuries is always a concern, and many of us have worn tooth edges or small chips. If your smile isn’t quite perfect, we can use an amazing technique called dental bonding to carry out minor repairs and make you feel more confident.

Dental bonding is also known as cosmetic or composite bonding. Using material called dental composite, your dentist can patch up worn surfaces, build up misshapen edges and fill in chips to provide you with a healthy looking, gorgeous smile. At room temperature, dental composite looks and feels like putty. It comes in several shades, so your dentist can choose a colour that matches your natural teeth perfectly.

When your dentist has shaped and moulded the composite to tend to the imperfections, they will ask you to put some goggles on and then they will shine a light onto the composite. This sets the composite, making it hard. Finally, your dentist will carry out last-minute adjustments to ensure a flawless finish.

The benefits of dental bonding

Dental bonding is an affordable, quick and painless cosmetic dental treatment, which can make an incredible difference to the look of your smile. The procedure takes an hour, and you won’t feel a thing!

Improve your appearance with dental veneers from Central Leeds dentist

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

4Dental veneers, which are sometimes known as porcelain veneers or laminates, are very thin tooth-coloured shells that are cemented over the top of discoloured, worn or otherwise damaged teeth. They are bonded to the existing surface of the teeth using composite resin, which is tooth coloured itself and also adds another layer of protection.

Veneers are capable of completely transforming the appearance of teeth by covering them with uniform shells that can create the appearance of straight, white teeth. Teeth can become discoloured for a variety of reasons but this can make teeth appear very unhealthy and cause a lot of anxiety for the patient. Veneers can transform discoloured teeth in a matter of two or three appointments at the dentist with little or no discomfort.

You and Central Leeds dentist will plan exactly what results you would like from veneers and the dentist will then conduct a short examination to make sure your teeth are suitable for veneers. They may also take some x-rays to aid in the manufacture of the veneers. The latest technology involves manufacturing veneers using digital x-rays and computer guided mills, which has significantly cut the time of manufacture.

When applying the veneer, the dentist may need to remove a fraction of the enamel or etch it for better adhesion. This is usually a painless procedure but some anaesthetic may be used as a precaution. After this comes the actual bonding process before the veneers are polished and any excess cement removed. The transformative powers of dental veneers has to be seen to be believed as they really can change not just a person’s face, but their entire appearance.
