Bonding

Patient: Lady, NM was understandably unhappy with the appearance of her upper right central incisor.

Treatment: Cosmetic bonding with Dr Helen Walsh

Cost: € 185

No re-touching of photgraphs has been done.

Patient S was self conscious about the discoloured marks and the gaps between her front teeth, but she thought the only way to fix them was to crown them.

While crowns and veneers can be a great solution in certain situations, we felt that we could get an excellent result here with the much less invasive approach of tooth whitening and cosmetic bonding. We gently whitened the teeth over a 2 week period, and then built up the two front teeth to give them back a much more pleasing shape and colour.

See for yourself and let us know what you think!

Patient G wanted to improve her smile without using braces or porcelain veneers.

She particularly wanted a wider smile, but also would like them to be a little straighter and whiter!

No problem! With Cosmetic bonding, we can totally transform a smile, and when combined with tooth whitening, we can get a fantastic result without having to do any drilling or enamel removal.

  • Requires absolutely no removal of any precious enamel
  • Very conservative treatment
  • Possible to get an excellent cosmetic result
  • Can easily be repaired in future if required
  • Reduced cost vs. crowns or veneers

Patient A did not like her smile and was self-conscious about her front teeth. She wanted to return her smile to how it looked before the teeth were worn, but wanted to keep the character and shape of the original teeth, including the gap between the two front teeth (disastema).

We discussed a number of treatment options including tooth whitening, cosmetic bonding, crowns and veneers. We opted for a combination of tooth whitening and cosmetic bonding for the following reasons:

  • Requires absolutely no removal of any precious enamel
  • Very conservative treatment
  • Possible to get an excellent cosmetic result
  • Can easily be repaired in future if required
  • Reduced cost compared to crowns or veneers

Sometimes the only way to straighten teeth is to use braces (orthodontics).

But if the mis-alignment is small, we may be able to use cosmetic bonding to get an excellent result in just a single appointment, with none of the side-effects or inconvenience of braces – and at considerably reduced cost.

See for yourself what can be achieved in just a couple of visits.

Cosmetic bonding is a very conservative treatment, there’s no enamel removal, and no need for anaesthetic.

Number of appointments: 3

This patient had been unhappy with his upper teeth for a while, and decided to do something about it. He wanted an inexpensive solution to improve his smile- but didn’t want to undergo extensive treatment.

We discussed a number of alternatives, and decided to choose cosmetic bonding because:

  • It is conservative – requiring minimal tooth cutting
  • It is inexpensive
  • Perhaps not as cosmetic as porcelain, it can still give an excellent looking result
  • It can be carried out in a single visit – with no anesthetic required

Cosmetic bonding and tooth whitening can be a non-invasive & inexpensive way to dramatically improve your smile. I love how these treatments combine together to have such a dramatic effect on this patient’s smile; she really does look (and feel) younger!
