Smiles of the Week

Before bonding

After just one visit!

Treatment : This patient had short and rotated lateral incisors (the teeth either side of the two front teeth). She did not like the way that this made her smile look uneven with big gaps between the teeth. We discussed all the treatment options including porcelain veneers, short term orthodontics, and cosmetic bonding. She chose cosmetic bonding because of its quick treatment time (single appointment) and reduced cost. Cometic composites were placed on the two lateral incisors and canine teeth to reduce the gaps and to make the teeth more level. Matching the shade of the composite exactly to that of the surrounding teeth can be one of the biggest challenges in dentistry, but if done correctly, the results can be dramatic.

R did not like the appearance of his front teeth; he felt that they looked too yellow, and he didn’t like the space between the two front teeth.

This 25 year old patient broke his front tooth playing football; he was naturally upset and at first glance, it looks pretty bad. In the past, we would have needed a crown to repair it

In the past, we would have needed a crown to repair it, but with modern cosmetic bonding materials, we can add directly to the broken tooth and craft the material to the exact shape and colour of the original. This was done in a single appointment, on the same day as the injury occurred.
