How We Can Sculpt Your Perfect Smile in the Heart of Leeds

Monday, July 17th, 2017

shutterstock_174986051Do you dream of showing off a perfect smile? If so, we have the tools, treatments, and techniques to make your dental dreams come true right here in the heart of Leeds. If your smile needs some TLC, you’ve come to the right place.

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!

Three Ways we can restore a broken tooth

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

shutterstock_621876419You’d be amazed at how strong the teeth are, but they’re not immune to damage. If you’ve got a broken tooth, there are various treatments and restorative techniques we can use to repair your damaged tooth and restore your smile to its former glory. These include:

  1. Dental bonding: in cases where the tooth is chipped, rather than broken, we can use a technique known as dental bonding. Bonding involves using a tooth-coloured resin material called composite to fill in the broken part of the tooth and reshape the tooth. This treatment offers both restorative and cosmetic benefits, and it only takes around one hour. There’s no pain involved, and you’ll notice the difference immediately.
  2. Crowns: dental crowns are types of restoration that are used to repair broken and decayed teeth. Crowns are sometimes called caps because they are placed over the top of the remaining tooth structure. Before a crown is fitted, the tooth will be shaped and cleaned and any damaged tissue will be removed. Every crown is custom-made to ensure a perfect fit and we can use ceramics to produce very natural aesthetics.
  3. Filling: if the tooth has a very minor fracture, it may be possible to restore it using a white filling. These fillings are made from a mixture of dental composite and resins. Your dentist will match the shade of the composite to your tooth colour so that you won’t be able to tell the difference between the composite and the natural tooth tissue.

If you have a broken or chipped tooth, we recommend getting in touch as soon as possible.

Beautiful teeth from Beautiful Bonding in Central Leeds

Friday, November 9th, 2012

It’s a very sad fact that age can slowly erode away our beauty all over our body, but especially the way we smile because smiling can beautifully highlight our true soul within. But when it comes to the general ageing of teeth, the dental world has recognised that not all off us are ready to shed this mortal coil and has plenty of tricks up its sleeve to ensure that you can smile to the end. One such jewel in the crown is dental bonding- a delightfully versatile treatment designed to cover up all manner of problems such as cracking, receding gums, discoloured teeth and gaps between the teeth, and what makes the procedure even more attractive is that there is no grinding or drilling required. You just sit down and the dentist applies several layers of resin to the surfaces of the teeth and when enough has been applied, the teeth are sculptured and polished within the hour. It isn’t as durable as other treatments, but the ace up its sleeve is that it over time the bonding starts to suffer itself, from wear and tear, all you have to do is go back to your dentist in central Leeds for a quick top up.
