You Could Be A Classy Lass With Super LS1 Veneers

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

529808_blogHave you ever seen somebody with a flawless smile and wished you could have the same perfect pearly whites? Well now you can! If you long for a TOWIE style makeover, a Hollywood worthy smile or a beautiful natural look, our veneer treatments are just the solution you’ve been searching for.

About veneers

Veneers are extremely thin shells, which are placed over your teeth to create a beautiful, gleaming smile. In most cases, veneers are made from ceramics, including porcelain, and they have a beautiful sheen and a lovely white shade. There are different colours and shapes available and you can choose the veneers, which best suit your idea of the perfect smile. Some patients love the all-out glamour of the Hollywood style bright white smile, while others prefer the subtlety of a more natural look.

Veneers are an excellent option for anyone who wants to turn their dull, stained or worn teeth into a radiant smile and they can also be really beneficial for those who have aesthetic problems, such as chipped or irregularly shaped teeth and gaps between the teeth.

Veneer treatment usually involves 3 key stages. During the first stage, we will plan your treatment and choose your veneers and we can show you images of what we expect your new smile to look like. The second stage involves preparing the teeth; this is a simple procedure, which is designed to create space for the new veneers by removing a wafer-thin layer of tooth surface. Once this has been done, we create an impression of the teeth and this is used to create your brand new, bespoke veneers. The final stage is to fit your veneers; we will place them over your teeth and check that you are happy with the result before bonding them onto the teeth. Once this session is complete, it’s time for you to get out there and show your new smile off to the world!

Gappy Smiles Are A Distant Memory Here In Heartland Leeds

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

221838_blogYour smile is often the first thing people notice about you and an important part of your appearance, so it’s natural to want it to look beautiful. Few people are blessed with naturally flawless smiles, but we have solutions for almost any issue you could possibly imagine and a perfect smile is never beyond the realms of possibility. Whether your teeth are crowded or crooked, you have staining or you have a gappy smile, we have treatments available to transform your teeth into a radiant set of pearly whites.

What can we do for a gappy smile?

A gappy smile is a term used when there are spaces between the teeth. Although there are often no symptoms associated with a gappy smile, there are aesthetic implications and this can affect confidence.

We have various options available to treat a gappy smile, including veneers, composite bonding and orthodontic treatments.

Composite bonding: this is a very effective and simple procedure, which can be used to build up worn tooth surfaces, close gaps between the smile and patch up chipped teeth. It involves using dental composite, which is the material used for white fillings. To begin with, the composite is soft and this means that dentists can shape and bend it to fit the gaps; when they are happy with the look of the teeth, the composite is then set firm using a powerful light source.

Veneers: veneers are an effective means of covering gaps between the teeth and they create beautiful results; they are usually made from porcelain and they sit over the top of the natural teeth. However, they do not actually reduce the size of the gaps between the teeth. Veneers can also be used to treat chipped and worn teeth.

Orthodontic treatment: orthodontic treatment moves the teeth and corrects tooth alignment. There are various options available depending on how much movement is required, including removable aligners, fixed braces, lingual braces and invisible braces.

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Happy buddies laughingIf you’ve got small gaps in your teeth, you may be resigning yourself to an imperfect smile or worrying about the potential prospect of wearing braces for years to come, but we have a solution, which can eliminate this problem in just one hour. Composite bonding is a fast, effective and completely painless procedure, which is capable of transforming the smile after just 60 minutes in the dental chair.

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding, also known as composite or cosmetic bonding, is a procedure, which is used dental composite to make minor adjustments to the shape or aesthetic of the teeth. Composite is matched up to the natural shade of your teeth and it can be moulded into different shapes. It is a versatile treatment, which is suitable for patients with chipped and worn teeth, as well as those with gaps between their teeth.

The actual procedure involves your dentist using their skill to shape the composite to alter the shape of the tooth, close gaps between the teeth or repair chipped or worn surfaces. The composite is soft, which means that it can be modified and once your dentist is happy with the results, it can be set hard using a curing light. The procedure is not painful, so you won’t need any anaesthetic of injections and your mouth won’t feel numb after treatment, and the results will be visible immediately.

What are the benefits?

Bonding is a simple, safe and affordable means of making the smile look more attractive. It is cheaper and much less invasive than veneer treatment and orthodontic treatment and you can enjoy the results straight-away. The changes that are made to each individual tooth are usually minor, but when you look in the mirror at the end of the session, you will be amazed at the difference!

How to Bond beautifully with your Teeth in Central Leeds

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

2904346_blogThe modern world is a demanding one that keeps you on the move all the time and central Leeds is certainly no different. The problem is that it leaves you with precious little time to do anything else in the day, especially in your teeth need a cosmetic little makeover; this is where bonding comes into its own. It is simple and for those of you who are short on time, it’s quick. In just half an hour, the dentist will have your teeth covered with a series of tooth-coloured resin layers, each being individually ‘cured’ along the way with a heat lamp. Once enough of the resin has been applied to the surfaces of the troubled areas, it is then shaped and highly polished for the desired results, all under hour! It will hide away many flaws, such as gaps, receding gums, cracks, chips and other nasty little irritations, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg in the process. Another benefit to having this done is that if it becomes a little tatty in the future (it has a shelf-life of around 5 years), simply pop back to the dentist for repairs- how brilliant is that?
