Meet the Quicker, Cheaper Alternative to Veneers

Friday, November 4th, 2016

Veneer SmileIf you’re dreaming of a flawless smile, you may be thinking that this is an unattainable, un-affordable goal. But if you have chipped, worn or damaged teeth, we have good news. With dental bonding, we can offer a cheaper, simpler and faster alternative to dental veneers, so you can have a perfect smile without a hefty bill.

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a really effective technique that irons out minor cosmetic imperfections. This treatment is often recommended as an alternative to dental veneers. It is cheaper, faster, and more convenient.

Bonding involves carrying out minor repairs to the teeth using a material called dental composite. Your dentist will use their expertise to mould the composite, which has a similar consistency to putty, to build up uneven surfaces, patch up small chips and improve the shape of the individual teeth. This treatment has a wide range of uses and it can really make a difference to the overall look of your smile. As well as repairing minor damage, bonding can also be used to close gaps between the teeth and create a more balanced aesthetic.

Once your dentist has shaped the composite and it is in the right place, they will use a curing light to set it. This makes the composite firm. This only takes a minute and you won’t feel any pain at all. Once the composite has set, your dentist will carry out any final adjustments, such as trimming, to make sure your smile looks flawless.

How long does treatment take?

Typically, dental bonding can be completed in around an hour. Before you have treatment, your dentist will explain what is going to happen, and you can ask as many questions as you like. You won’t need any anaesthetic, as this is a painless procedure. You’ll able to check out your new smile and see the incredible results as soon as your dentist has finished. Bonding can be done in a single session.

Terrific Tooth Bonding

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Beautiful young lady smilingTooth bonding uses a thin layer of filling made from composite resin. This can be bonded to teeth at the front or back, with the ability to build up teeth worn down by decay, fill small gaps, and to cosmetically correct such imperfections as stains, flaws and crookedness. It is a relatively long lasting treatment and the bonding is accomplished quickly for maximum effect within one or two appointments.

The presence of minor gaps or small but noticeable unevenness between teeth can be irritating for many people, and they may not wish to consider braces or other slow-working aligners to treat these problems. Tooth bonding is a simple way to close small gaps and cover imperfections, including chips, gum recession, discoloration and grooves or pits in the teeth, to boost confidence and create a more attractive smile. The treatment also boasts discretion and naturalness, as the colour of the material is matched to the patient’s teeth.

A thin coat of etching solution is carefully applied to the front surface of the imperfect teeth. This makes tiny rough dips in the enamel and thus enables the resin to bond properly. The dentist then adds the composite resin bonding substance over the top and uses a strong light to fix the bonding to the teeth, hardening the material in minutes. When all necessary layers are complete and hardened, the dentist skilfully sculpts for the best and most natural looking results. The teeth are finished with polishing, and the procedure should last between 1 and 2 hours.

The bonding material is porous, which means that air can move freely through the material. In time, smokers who have undergone this procedure will find that these bonds are likely to turn yellow in colour. This may not be a problem if the surrounding teeth match this colour, but if aesthetic considerations are important then smokers should first talk to their dentist about this issue.

Regular silver fillings generally last for approximately 7 years, but the resin composites are designed for strength and so endure general wears and tears. The bonding should last between 7 and 11 years, though it is important to note that, as with all cosmetic dentistry treatments, maintaining your own oral hygiene habits is paramount in keeping the bonding in the best condition.

Repairing Gaps and Chips with Cosmetic Bonding

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

2823674_blogEven the smallest chip can make you feel self-conscious when you smile, but thankfully we have an incredible treatment ready and waiting to restore the beauty of your smile and boost your confidence. If you have minor cosmetic flaws, such as chipped, worn or misshapen teeth, gaps between your teeth or uneven tooth edges, cosmetic bonding offers a simple and affordable solution.

So, what exactly is cosmetic bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a single-session treatment that offers incredible aesthetic benefits to patients with mild imperfections. Bonding involves layering dental composite to re-shape the teeth and reduce the size of gaps between them. Dental composite is a putty-like substance that comes in a range of shades to match your natural teeth. Your dentist will use their skills and expertise to carefully prepare the teeth and layer the composite to build up worn edges, improve the shape of the individual teeth and repair chips. Once the composite is in the correct place, your dentist will shine a curing lamp onto it to set it. Although composite is not as hard as natural tooth enamel, it can last for many years.

The benefits of bonding

Bonding offers an array of benefits and it can really make a difference to the way you feel about your smile, as well as the way it looks. Treatment can usually be completed in under an hour and the results are visible instantly. There’s no drilling, no injections and the outcome is fantastic. Even though the changes may feel minor at the time, when you look in the mirror you’ll notice an amazing difference.

If you would like to find an effective and completely stress-free solution for aesthetic issues and you dream of a perfect smile, call us today to find out more about cosmetic bonding and schedule an appointment.

Alternatives To Veneers In The City Of Leeds

Friday, December 19th, 2014

2977218_blogVeneers are very popular and they do create amazing aesthetics, but they are not always the best option for every patient. Veneers can be expensive and often, there are less invasive treatments that may be more beneficial. One treatment that we often recommend for patients who need minor repair or aesthetic work is cosmetic bonding.

What is cosmetic bonding?

Cosmetic bonding, also known as dental or composite bonding, is a cosmetic procedure, which presents a more affordable and quicker alternative to veneers. Bonding is usually completed within an hour and there is no pain involved, so patients don’t have to worry about injections or leaving the clinic with that horrible numb feeling.

Bonding is a great solution for chipped and worn teeth and it can also be a really effective choice for patients who have a gap between their teeth. With bonding, your dentist makes tiny changes to individual teeth, which have a significant impact on the look of the smile.

What happens during the procedure?

Cosmetic bonding involves using dental composite, a versatile, tooth-coloured material, to carry out minor repairs and aesthetic changes to individual teeth. Composite has a similar consistency to putty and this means that it can be shaped and modified to fit in gaps, repair chipped teeth and to build-up and smooth out uneven surfaces. Once the composite is in the right place, your dentist will then set it using a curing light; this takes just a few seconds and all you have to do is pop on a pair of protective glasses.

Bonding usually takes around one hour and the results will be there to see and enjoy immediately.

If you’re looking for a fast, affordable and completely painless solution for chips and wear and tear and you dream of a beautiful smile, bonding could be just the ticket!

The Artistry Of Cosmetic Bonding In Leeds

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

Dentists in Leeds these days tend to see themselves more as maverick artists these days and with good reason too: their patients walk in with their blank canvases (their often unsightly teeth) and expect them to create a smile of beauty and more often than not, they do. They have many options at their disposal to do this type of work, but probably the most versatile and artistic of all is cosmetic bonding. This treatment is magical, covering up the many sins of an unsightly smile whilst being damn quick to boot. If you are suffering from a tired looking mouth that is sadly graced with cracks, chips and gaps between discoloured teeth, this is your salvation. Pop to see the dentist and you will be sat onto the easel: your teeth will first be cleaned in order to take the first of several layers of coloured resin that are applied to the surface of the teeth. Once there is enough resin, the dentist gets really artistic as your teeth will be literally sculptured until you get the look you want. Finally, they are polished to perfection. All of this can be done in around the hour and you depart with a glamorous new smile.
