Your New ‘Smile in A Day’ With Composite Bonding

When some people consider making cosmetic dental improvements to their teeth, they assume this will be an expensive, painful and drawn out process requiring lots of visits to the dentist. However, thanks to advancements in dental techniques and materials, the Neem Dental Clinic, Harrow is able to offer a ‘new smile in a day’ using composite bonding to help improve the colour, shape, spacing and overall appearance of your teeth.

This provides the ideal solution for those wanting fast, effective and instant results without the need for multiple appointments or painful, costly treatments.

Your New ‘Smile in A Day’ With Composite Bonding

What Is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is an advanced dental technique that can be utilised to repair cracked, chipped or discoloured teeth, as well as closing gaps or helping to build up broken down or shorter teeth.

The bonding material used is a tooth coloured composite resin that is applied to the existing teeth and then expertly moulded by a skilled dental clinician to correct imperfections.

Who Can Benefit From Composite Bonding?

Once the planning stages and whitening have been completed, composite bonding provides a simple and painless solution, which allows us to give patients a beautiful smile makeover – and an instant confidence boost – in just one session.

This innovative dental procedure is minimally invasive making it suitable for even the most nervous of patients and can be used to help correct a wide range of cosmetic dental issues including;

  • Cracks – helps to prevent cracks from extending further as well as minimising their appearance and any discolouration that may have happened as a result.
  • Chips – can be restored to avoid further damage and create an even, flawless surface.
  • Gaps – building outwards helps to close the space between teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth – unevenly shaped, mismatched or oddly sized teeth can be added to and shaped to blend in seamlessly with the teeth around them.
  • Discolouration – improves the appearance of stained teeth for a whiter smile
  • Exposed roots – can be used to add protection to exposed root surfaces which helps prevent painful sensitivity.

What Does The Composite Bonding Procedure Involve?

The specifics of the procedure will depend on your individual dental needs, the amount of bonding that is being carried out and the types of flaws that are being corrected.

Firstly, your dentist will colour match the composite resin to your teeth in order to deliver the most natural finish. Depending on the desired results, you may wish to undergo whitening treatment prior to the bonding in order to brighten your smile.

In some areas, it may be necessary to lightly roughen the surface of the natural tooth to help the resin adhere better to the teeth. The resin is then applied and carefully shaped and moulded to correct the imperfections and look like a natural tooth. A special UV light is then used to help harden the resin and the teeth are polished.

Because this treatment is relatively straight forward and requires no injections or anaesthetic, it can often be performed in just one session taking around 30 minutes per tooth, which means you can leave us with a brand new smile that you will love!

Benefits Of A Composite Bonding Same Day Smile Makeover

There are many great advantages to undergoing a smile makeover with our composite bonding artistry services. Here are just some of the many benefits;

  • Unlike some other treatments nothing needs making in a lab or sending away, everything is made and applied in your appointment, so you be done in just one session.
  • This treatment is in most cases completely painless with no need for anaesthetic.
  • It is extremely cost effective and tends to be one of the least expensive cosmetic treatments.
  • Because the original teeth are preserved and remain intact the treatment can be repeated with no damage to the teeth.
  • Although composite bonding doesn’t last as long as some long-term solutions, results can last from around 5-10 years if cared for properly.

It is worth noting that although composite bonding can be used to correct a wide range of imperfections it might not be suitable for everyone and is best suited to mild or minor cosmetic issues. If you are interested in the treatment, then it’s best to discuss it with your dentist to find out if you are a suitable candidate or if an alternative treatment such as tooth whitening, dental veneers or Invisalign would be a more effective, long term solution .

Are You Ready For A New Smile?

If you aren’t 100% happy with your teeth or are self-conscious about discolouration, gaps, chips or unevenness then composite bonding could be the perfect solution. Our highly skilled team of dental clinicians are on hand to deliver fast, pain free and effective same day smile makeovers that our patients love.

Everyone wants to look their best on their wedding day. The very first thing people notice about you is your smile and your teeth. On your special day, make sure yous smile is the best it can be!

Wedding Day Planning

As part of the wedding process try to factor in your dental appointments. You will need to consider in the time taken to carry out the dental treatment. At the very least, we recommend that you visit the dental hygienist in the weeks before your wedding.

What options for treatment do you have?

Pre-wedding treatments depend on your smle goals how long you have before your wedding.

Get your teeth sparkly and clean for your wedding day

A simple visit to the dental hygienist can ensure your teeth are clean before your big day. This is a 30 minute appointment and can be carried out in the days leading to your wedding.

A deep polish

Have an air polish to remove any deep set stains. This is a 30 minute appointment and can be carried out in the days leading to your wedding.

Tooth whitening to improve the colour of your teeth

There are many tooth whitening options available to you. However, you should leave at least 6 weeks before your wedding to have this treatment carried out. That allows enough time to ensure you get a great result. See our tooth whitening page for more information.

Composite bonding

We can carry out minor tooth modifications with tooth coloured fillings to improve your smile. Again, we advise this is carried out a minimum of 6 weeks before your wedding. Longer, if you are combining with tooth whitening.

Dental Veneers

These are porcelain laminate shells that fit onto the front of your teeth. They require only very minimal preparation of your teeth. We recommend that this treatment is provided at least three months before your wedding day.

Smile Makeover

Many patients consider a smile makeover. This is not actually any one treatment, but a combination of one or more of the above treatments. The time taken to complete the treatment depends on which treatments you undergo.

Make Your Wedding More Special With Your Perfect Smile

THE PERFECT ADDITION TO ANY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE

A stunning smile on your wedding day is just as important as your wedding dress – it’s your most important accessory! It completes your look fantastically and you will be able to see how wonderful you looked on this big day for years to come.

Cosmetic dentistry can help to create a wonderful smile for your big day increasing your confidence and self-esteem. You will be able to smile confidently in every photograph and really focus on enjoying the day rather than covering up your smile with your hand when you laugh.

Cosmetic smile improvements can be created from any of the following treatments:

  • Hygienist stain removal treatments. This is a perfect procedure if you have essentially good teeth but simply suffer from staining from food and drink. Your concern can easily be rectified in a single appointment. This is an ideal visit to brighten your smile several days before your wedding.
  • Teeth whitening. This is a simple treatment often carried out at home with a special teeth whitening kit. This should be done about three weeks before the “big day” for ideal results.
  • Cosmetic veneers. This treatment can be used to a beautiful smile in a single appointment with bonding techniques using tooth-colored materials. Alternatively, a stunning smile makeover can be created with more cosmetically enhanced porcelain veneers. This type of treatment takes about 4 weeks, so could be considered as an option a month before the wedding.
  • Orthodontic teeth straightening. If you have a few months still to go you can opt for a more conservative approach using inconspicuous braces or aligners to straighten any crooked teeth or to close spaces between teeth. This treatment can take from 4-9 months and can help restore your smile for the big day.
  • Enamel and/or gum reshaping. Sometimes a simple conservative approach that entails reshaping of your gums and teeth can have a huge impact on the resulting smile. This treatment could take about half an hour and could be carried out in conjunction with the hygiene visit. This treatment could be carried out a week before your dream day.

We can customize your treatment plan to suit your specific needs in terms of time, budget and choices of treatment. Let us help make your big day more memorable with a great smile that you can show off to all.

Special Wedding Packages are available for the bride & groom or mother & bride. Please call us for more information.

“You can now enjoy your special day, and have amazing photos to cherish,  rather than covering up your smile.”

How To Get A Dazzling Smile For Your Special Day

Let’s face it, getting married has to be one of the most important days in a girl’s life so it’s understandable that you want to look their best, after all you are the star of the show. Planning a wedding is a busy time what with sourcing a venue, sampling menus, choosing a photographer, buying your dress, and planning a honeymoon, and it’s easy to get caught up in all this activity and forget about an important part of you that will be on show – your teeth.

Arrange a dental at least few months before your wedding day

Visiting your dentist in Harrow prior to your wedding day should always be on your tick list of things to do. Arrange to have a check-up six months beforehand in case you need any treatment doing. We provide general dentistry as well as cosmetic dentistry in Harrow and offer a wide range of treatments and services. One of our most asked for treatments is teeth whitening which many people choose if they have a special event coming up.

Teeth whitening in Harrow

Sometimes a visit to the hygienist for a ‘clean and scrape’ will suffice to remove superficial stains and make your teeth feel and look nice and clean. Alternatively, your teeth may benefit from a professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth are gently bleached a few shades lighter making your smile look more attractive and giving you renewed confidence. We can carry out the whitening at the clinic in an appointment which lasts about an hour or, if you prefer, you can take home a whitening kit which you’ll need to use for around 2 weeks to achieve the best results.

We should point out that it’s always advisable to visit your dentist first so that he can see whether you are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening. If you have any signs of tooth decay or gum disease then that will have to be treated first. Also, if you have crowns or front fillings then be aware that the materials used in these won’t whiten, so you may have to seek another option such as veneers. These are wafer thin layers of porcelain which fit over your entire tooth or teeth to disguise any stains, cracks, or other imperfections. They can be colour matched to your other teeth for a seamless appearance.

What makes a selfie-worthy smile?

Now more than ever, all eyes are on our smiles.

This is the selfie generation. We snap selfies everywhere we go, to show the world where we’ve been and who we’re with.

Our faces are everywhere online. Facebook. Instagram. Tinder. We are judged by complete strangers and people we barely know, with nothing more to go on than one snapshot of our lives. A status update. A profile photo.

We make decisions quickly. To follow or unfollow? Friend or unfriend? Swipe right or swipe left?

Want Great Selfies? Take Care of Your Teeth

Excellent dental care and good hygiene are essential for oral health. Dental care also keeps your teeth looking great. Routine care is a vital component of a terrific smile. There are also lots of cosmetic procedures your family dentist can provide to improve your smile.

  • Keep up with check-ups and cleanings every six months.
  • Professional whitening in your dentist’s office is the best way to achieve dramatic results. Whitening systems like take-home treatments that combine the stunning results of an in-clinic treatment with custom trays you take home for follow-up. Those take-home trays allow you to keep your teeth whiter longer and touch up at home as day-to-day staining happens.
  • Veneers can help if you’re hesitant to smile because of stained, chipped or badly-shaped teeth. They’re custom-made shells that cover the front side of your teeth, allowing you to have the size, shape and color of your dreams.
  • When your teeth have minor cosmetic issues such as a small chip or discoloration, dental bonding is an easy, relatively quick and affordable solution. By applying a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) material to a tooth and hardening it with a light, the tooth receives restoration that protects the area from further damage and improves your smile and confidence.

Cosmetic Bonding in Harrow

Improve Your Smile with Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve person’s smile.

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic Bonding can be considered to fix the following dental issues:

  • To repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • To improve the appearance of discoloured teeth
  • To close spaces between teeth
  • To make teeth look longer
  • To change the shape of teeth
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • To protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede

Cosmetic Bonding Procedure

Cosmetic Bonding takes little to no preparation. Your Neem dentist will match the shade of your existing teeth to select a composite resin colour that will closely match the colour of your tooth.

There are two forms of Cosmetic Bonding: direct composite bonding and adhesive bonding

Direct Composite Bonding – This is the process where dentists use tooth-coloured composites white or natural-looking materials) to fill cavities, repair chips or cracks, close gaps between your teeth and build up the worn-down edges of teeth. The composite materials may also be directly applied and sculpted to the surfaces of teeth that show most prominently when you smile, for minimally invasive smile makeovers. In the dental world these are called direct composite veneers but generically known by most to be called “bonding.”

Adhesive Bonding – This is the process of attaching a restoration to a tooth. This method is commonly used for aesthetic crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges and inlays/onlays. After your Neem dentist has chosen a colour that matches the shade of your teeth, he/she will roughen the surface of the tooth using a gentle phosphoric acid solution. Soon after the roughing agent is removed, a liquid bonding agent is applied. The tooth-coloured putty-like resin is applied to the tooth, then moulded and smoothed until it’s in the desired shape. The material is then hardened with an ultraviolet curing light, and the previous step is repeated until the filing or direct composite veneer has reached its final shape. Your Neem dentist will then polish the material until it matches the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.


Pros and Cons of Cosmetic Bonding

Pros – Cosmetic Bonding is one of the most common and least expensive of cosmetic dentistry procedures. It can usually be done in one short visit unless multiple teeth are involved. Another advantage to bonding is that compared to veneers and crowns, it requires little to no removal of tooth enamel. Most procedures involving dental bonding do not require anaesthesia.

Cons – The material used in dental bonding is not as strong as your real teeth, so biting on fingernails or chewing on pens can actually chip the material. Bonding only lasts a few years before it needs to be repaired and is not as strong as other restorative procedures, such as crowns, veneers, or fillings. It is also not as stain resistant as crowns.

Because there are some limitations to the restorative impacts that bonding can have, some dentists may view it as best suited for small cosmetic changes, for temporary correction of cosmetic defects, and for correction of teeth in areas of very low bite pressure (for example, front teeth). Your Neem dentist will be able to tell you if bonding is right for you or may make other recommendations relative to your personal conditions.
