Did you know Veneers could Transform your Smile Dramatically?

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

shutterstock_571312708In this day and age, we’re bombarded by images of people with perfect smiles. Whether you’re watching a film or browsing your news feed on Instagram, there are flawless sets of pearly whites everywhere. In the past, veneers were associated with celebrities, but today, they are accessible to all. If you dream of a bright white, beautiful smile, we can make your dreams come true, right here in the centre of Leeds.

About veneers

Veneers are tooth-shaped pieces of incredibly fine laminated ceramic material (usually porcelain), which are fixed onto the surfaces of the natural teeth. Each veneer is fitted individually, and the outcome is a stunning new smile. As well as porcelain veneers, we also offer Componeers, which are a cheaper option. Componeers can be bonded directly onto the teeth and they are composed of a mixture of materials, including composite. If you’re worried about the cost of porcelain veneers and you want results fast, Componeers may be the best solution for you.

Veneers are very versatile and they can be used to treat a multitude of imperfections. Very few people have naturally perfect teeth, but you don’t have to let chips, worn surfaces, discolouration or gaps between your teeth get you down. With veneers, we can transform your smile dramatically and make you feel much more confident when your pearly whites are on show.

What does veneer treatment involve?

If you’re interested in veneers, the first thing we recommend is booking a consultation. During your consultation, we’ll give you all the information you could possibly need about veneers and answer any questions you have. We’ll also examine your teeth and have a chat with you about what your dream outcome would be. We can also show you some images of smiles we have created using veneer treatment. If you choose to go ahead and have veneers, we can usually complete treatment in two sessions. During the first, we’ll prepare your teeth and create impressions, and when your veneers are ready, we’ll invite you back and secure them onto your teeth.

Priceless Porcelain Onlays Provide A Perfect Smile

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

2977218_blogIf you dream of a perfect smile for Christmas, we are here to make your wishes come true. With our range of cosmetic and restorative treatments, we have a solution for every dental drama and we can provide the perfect treatment for you.

If you have a damaged tooth, we are able to offer an array of restorative solutions, including beautiful porcelain onlays.

What are onlays?

Onlays are a type of restoration, which are used to repair damaged teeth; they are usually seen as a mid-point between a filling and a crown. Onlays can be made from dental composite, precious metals or porcelain; we often recommend porcelain because it produces the best, most natural looking aesthetics. Onlays are very similar to inlays, but with an onlay, the restoration also covers the cusp of the tooth.

Onlays are not a permanent solution, but they are durable and hard-wearing and they should last for several years.

Why would I need an onlay?

You may be advised to have an onlay if you’ve damaged your tooth playing sport or as a result of trauma, you have had a large filling in the past or you have extensive decay and you need a more intensive treatment than a filling.

Onlays and inlays are custom-made for the individual to ensure they fit perfectly. An impression of the tooth is made and sent away to the dental laboratory and the restoration is usually ready within 2 weeks.

Our Dental Veneers Are Sheer Elegance

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Beautifully HappyIf you’re searching for a treatment, which offers elegant, natural looking results, our porcelain veneer could be just the ticket.

Porcelain veneers are ultra-fine and light sheets of laminated porcelain, which are trimmed to fit over the natural teeth to create a stunning smile. Veneers are bespoke and they are created based on a mould of the patient’s teeth; this ensures a perfect fit and a seamless, natural finish.

Veneers are often used to create flawless smiles and they have become exceptionally popular in recent years; however, they can also have restorative benefits and are commonly used to cover chipped and worn teeth. Veneers can also provide a solution for patients who have stained teeth or small gaps between their teeth.

How do veneers work?

Veneers are custom-made for the patient and they can be used individually or as a full set. Before veneers are placed, the teeth are prepared in a simple and quick procedure, which involves buffing the teeth and taking away a wafer-thin layer of the tooth surface to make space for the new veneers. An impression is created and this is sent away to the dental laboratory; the new veneers are usually ready around 2 weeks later. The veneers are then placed over the natural teeth and we ask you to check that you are happy with the look of your new and improved smile before we secure them using dental adhesive.

With veneers, anything is possible and we really transform your smile! Call us now to find out more about how you could achieve your dream smile.

Monday, October 6th, 2014

18625044With dental veneers, your aesthetic dental woes can become a thing of the past and you can look forward to showcasing a stunning smile every time you open your mouth. If you’re worried about unsightly chips, you have worn teeth or you have gaps between your teeth, veneers can come to your rescue! Get ready to enjoy a magnificent new smile!

The advantages of dental veneers

Veneers have obvious cosmetic benefits, as they enhance the look of the smile and address problems, such as chipped, stained and worn teeth; however, they can also help to strengthen damaged and weak teeth and they have often have a positive effect on confidence.

Veneers create beautiful smiles and as your smile is often he first thing people notice about you, this has a significant impact on day to day life. If you’re happy with the look of your teeth, you’ll be more inclined to show off your smile and this means you can show your true personality. Veneers are particularly beneficial for people who have suffered from low confidence and poor self-image in the past as a result of being unhappy with the look of their smile.

How do veneers work?

Veneers are sheets of porcelain, which are trimmed to fit over the teeth to create a beautiful new smile. They are custom-designed for the patient and they simply sit on top of the natural teeth; they are fixed onto the surface using adhesive and they should last for several years. Before veneers are made, the teeth are prepared and an impression is created; this mould is sent away to the dental laboratory and the veneers are crafted according to the exact shape of the teeth. The preparation stage is nothing to worry about and it simply involves removing a very thin layer of the tooth surface to make space for the veneers.

Bowl Your Friends Over With A Blinding Bridge

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Sensual and FreshLosing a tooth can be upsetting, but with a dental bridge, you can bowl you friends over with a dazzling smile and enjoy greater confidence and improved self-esteem.

What are dental bridge solutions?

A dental bridge is created to replace missing teeth and they are an affordable durable option. The most common form of bridge is the traditional fixed dental bridge, which is made of a false tooth, which is supported by a new crown on each side. Bridges are commonly made from ceramics, such as porcelain, which is fused to metal, but you can also get precious metal bridges.

Bridges are designed for the individual patient and they are fabricated based on a mould, which ensures that the bridge fits perfectly. Once it is ready, your dentist will place it in position and then secure it. Bridges last around 10-15 years.

How could a dental bridge benefit me?

It’s always beneficial to replace a missing tooth, for health reasons, as well as aesthetic and functional reasons. Bridges are more affordable than dental implants and they should last for up to 15 years if they are well cared-for; with ceramic bridges, you also get an amazing, natural looking aesthetic, so you won’t be able to tell the difference between the bridge and the natural teeth when you smile. Replacing missing teeth not only gives you more confidence when you smile, it also enables you to eat properly and improves the clarity of your speech.

Conquer Your Camera Shyness With Leeds Dental Crowns

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

1567900_blogDo you instantly feel uncomfortable when there’s a camera around? Are you constantly hiding your teeth and showing off a closed-mouth smile? If so, we can help you to boost your confidence in front of the camera with brand new beautiful crowns. Our crowns offer style and strength and you will feel much more comfortable in the limelight once you have your stunning new smile.

About dental crowns

Dental crowns are very common types of restoration, which are used to bolster teeth that are decayed or damaged. If you have a broken tooth as a result of an accident, a sports injury or even a stray humbug, we can help! Crowns are placed over the top of your natural tooth and they create a beautiful, natural looking aesthetic, as well as making your tooth stronger and more resistant to injury in the future.

We make custom-made crowns for our clients using the best quality materials and we can offer a range of choices to suit your needs and preferences, including porcelain crowns, ceramic and metal crowns and precious metal crowns.

The procedure

Before a tooth is crowned, it’s important to prepare it; this procedure is designed to remove the decayed tooth tissue and shape the remaining structure in preparation for the placement of the new crown. Once the tooth has been shaped, your dentist will make an impression of the tooth from dental putty and this will act as the blueprint for your crown. The impression will be sent to our amazing dental technicians and returned shortly after. When we have the new crown, we simply place it over the tooth and then secure it with dental adhesive.

Once you have a crown, it should last for many years, but it’s really important that you look after it by maintaining good oral hygiene at home and seeing your dentist every 6 months.

LS1 Has Porcelain Onlays For Those Minor Chips And Breaks

Sunday, June 8th, 2014

4683491_blogEven a small chip can affect the look of your smile, as well as your confidence and our porcelain onlays are a great remedy. We can patch up your tooth and have your smile looking beautiful again in no time!

An onlay is a form of restoration, which is often considered as a middle ground between a filling and a crown. The aim of the restoration is to strengthen and protect the tooth. Onlays are similar to inlays, but they are more expansive, as they cover the outer surface of the tooth, as well as the cusps of the tooth.

Why would I need an onlay?

You may need an onlay if you’ve damaged or chipped a tooth or you have a cavity, which requires more intensive treatment than a filling. Onlays help to protect the teeth from further damage and enable you to enjoy better tooth function; they also create a more attractive aesthetic.

We recommend porcelain onlays because they are durable and they offer amazing aesthetics. The porcelain matches the natural shade of the teeth and it also has a glossy finish, which makes the tooth look healthy.

If you’ve got a chipped tooth and you’ve been wondering what options were available, call us today or pop in and arrange an appointment. We can have a close look at your tooth and then go through the different treatment options with you to help you find the most suitable solution.

Missing Teeth Options At A Leeds Dentist Near You!

Monday, April 14th, 2014

4843159_blogThere are so many reasons why it is beneficial to replace missing teeth and we have a range of tooth replacement treatments to suit varying needs and budgets.

Dentures have been around for years, but they have changed a great deal. Our modern dentures are functional and aesthetically pleasing and they enable you to enjoy eating and speaking with confidence. Dentures are a very popular option for patients with a large number of missing teeth, but we also offer partial dentures, for those who have a small number of missing teeth. Partial dentures are designed to fit in with the natural teeth.

Dental bridges are a popular choice for patients with a single missing tooth. They are made up of a false tooth, which is attached to new crowns and supported by strong teeth adjacent to the gap. Bridges can be made from many different materials, including porcelain for a natural look, and they last many years. The procedure is simple and bridges tend to be much less expensive than dental implants, although they are not a permanent solution.

Dental implants are the newest treatment on the market and they are extremely advanced. Implants are made from titanium and they are designed to act as a replacement for the missing root. They are placed inside small openings in the jaw bone and left to integrate through a process called osseointegration. Once this has taken place, a new restoration is attached to replace the crown of the tooth. One of the major advantages of implant treatment is that it is very versatile, as you can attach a bridge, denture or crown to the implant.

Porcelain Onlays In LS1 Can Maintain Your Tooth’s Natural Structure

Onlays are sometimes known as partial crowns and they are often used in cases where a filling is insufficient, but a total crown is not required. Onlays are often made from porcelain for natural aesthetics. They are used to treat and repair teeth that have been damaged by injury or decay. Onlays are very similar to inlays, but they cover the cusps of the biting surface of the teeth.

Onlays are designed for the individual and they should last for several years. They are often the best option when a filling is broken or too large for the tooth, or when the tooth has broke as a result of injury, trauma or the tooth has severely decayed.
