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

Treatment : This patient did not like her uneven front teeth, she felt that the edges of the teeth were jagged and looked crooked. She also felt that the colour could be improved.

We discussed all the treatment options including orthodontics, porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding. The patient preferred cosmetic bonding because  :
a) it is possible to do in a single appointment,
b) reduced cost compared to other treatments

After whitening the teeth, cosmetic bonding was performed on the four front teeth, & cosmetic re-contouring of the two adjacent canine teeth to smooth them.

Treatment carried out by: Dr Nicholas Beirne

Treatment time: Whitening for 4-6 weeks followed by cosmetic bonding and re-contouring in a single appointment

Cost of treatment: €1,180

Central incisors too big?

Or were the lateral incisors too small?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

C did not like her smile, and felt that her two front teeth (central incisors) looked too big. When we analysed her smile however, we felt that the problem was that the two teeth beside the front teeth (lateral incisors) were too small, with old and stained white fillings. SO, rather than reduce the two central incisors – we added to the laterals. This is a more conservative treatment, and creates the impression of a more even and harmonious smile.

Treatment involved an initial course of whitening, followed by a try-in of porcelain veneers before finishing with cosmetic bonding. Interestingly, this was a case where cosmetic bonding proved to give us a better cosmetic outcome that porcelain veneers.

Treatment : J was unhappy with the appearance of his teeth, but didn’t want to use porcelain crowns to rebuild them. We discussed all the treatment options and decided that he would be suitable for tooth whitening and cosmetic bonding. We whitened the teeth first using slow release combined with internal bleaching, and then rebuilt the teeth using cosmetic bonding.
This stunning result took just a matter of weeks, and has totally transformed the J’s appearance.
