So she was all ready to dance up the aisle with her new smile–we hope she had a fantastic day!!!

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.

Treatment : Tooth Whitening and cosmetic bonding

Treatment carried out by : Dr Nicholas Beirne

Number of appointments: 3

Cost: €1,200

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

A real case recently completed at Portobello Dental Clinic.

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!

Ms L wanted her smile improved for her upcoming wedding.

She was unhappy with the appearance of her teeth claiming they were ‘crooked‘ and the tips of the teeth were see-through.

Ms L’s smile before treatment:

With Ms L we elected to straighten her teeth with 6 month smiles and on removal of the short term braces we placed some bonding on the inside of her incisors to give a less ‘see-through’  appearance.

Treatment : N did not like her irregular front teeth and there were old and unsightly white fillings in two of them

We discussed all the treatment options including porcelain crowns, veneers and cosmetic bonding. We felt that cosmetic bonding would be best because :
a) it is possible to do in a single appointment,
b) reduced cost compared to other treatments,
c) although not quite as cosmetic as porcelain veneers, it is still possible to get a very good aesthetic result.
The teeth were whitened over a two week course, then reshaped using cosmetic re-contouring techniques and repaired using cosmetic bonding.

Treatment carried out by: Dr Nicholas Beirne

Treatment time: Whitening over 2 weeks, followed by cosmetic bonding in a single appointment

Cost of treatment: €740
