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
