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.

DEEP TEETH CLEANING VS ROUTINE CLEANING

Do I need a deep teeth cleaning?

One of the most common scenarios we see are patients who haven’t been to the dentist in a while and are told they need a deep teeth cleaning. They don’t have any pain, which makes them skeptical of this diagnosis given the cost of deep cleaning teeth, and come to me for a second opinion.

Deep teeth cleanings are often misdiagnosed when a routine teeth cleaning is really all that is needed for the patient. Unfortunately, some dental clinics take a more aggressive approach when prescribing this treatment. To ease the patients’ mind, I tell them there are several signs deep cleaning treatment is needed. All of which we can show them during the appointment.

Before having that conversation, I think it’s important to understand the purpose of deep cleaning teeth.

What is deep cleaning teeth?

Deep cleaning teeth – also known as scaling and root planning, or non-surgical periodontal therapy – is the process of removing tartar that forms beneath the gum line to stop the progression of gum disease.

If left untreated, the accumulation of tartar (hardened plaque) can result in inflamed gums that break the seal between the tooth and healthy gum tissue. Thus, allowing the disease to migrate down the root and cause more inflammation. This inflammation is the first sign of gum disease – it’s called gingivitis.

At this stage, gum disease is reversible. However, it must be treated, which is where a deep teeth cleaning comes in. If you put off deep cleaning teeth for too long, the disease will progress and you will begin to lose bone around your teeth, eventually causing tooth loss. Once the disease progresses to this point (periodontitis), it is irreversible.

What’s the difference between deep cleaning teeth and a routine teeth cleaning?

A routine teeth cleaning is what most people experience when they visit the dentist clinic. It is very unlikely that someone who visits the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning will need a deep cleaning. Rather, it’s typically necessary when someone hasn’t been to the dentist for a teeth cleaning for many years or does not practice proper hygiene on a daily basis. There are many habits and behaviors that lead to rapid tartar buildup, and eventually gum disease, when tartar is ignored: sipping on sugary drinks throughout the day, forgetting to brush teeth and gums regularly, never flossing your teeth, and more.

Signs you need a deep teeth cleaning

Should you need a deep cleaning, it’s important that you get one, and soon. There are several telltale signs that you can look for to confirm this diagnosis – both at home and with your dentist. Signs you can look for at home include:

  1. Bleeding gums when you brush or floss Bleeding or swollen gums are one of the first signs of gum disease. This is your body’s way of trying to get rid of the disease, and is caused by a buildup of plaque along the gum line. You may also have sore gums, or gums that look red and puffy.
  2. Bad breathConsistently bad breath – not just in the mornings or after a meal – is another sign that you may need a deep cleaning. This is caused by the bacteria in your mouth that is actively destroying your bone.

Another sign to look for is tartar (or dental calculus) around the bottom front teeth. If you notice this, or have bad breath and/or bleeding gums, it’s best to make a dentist appointment to have this checked out. During your appointment, the dentist will be able to confirm your diagnosis. Signs they look for – which they will be able to show you – include:

  1. Periodontal pockets of 4mm or greaterIf you think back to your last dentist appointment, you may recall the hygienist spouting out a list of numbers. These are likely the measurements of your periodontal pockets, or the vertical space between the tooth and gum. Healthy gums have pockets that measure no more than 3 mm. A deep cleaning is needed when you have one or more pocket per quadrant that are 4mm or greater. At 5mm, the patient will be diagnosed with periodontitis, and at 6mm or 7mm with advanced periodontitis.
  2. Radiographic bone lossThe combination of periodontal pockets and tartar buildup will eventually begin to affect the bone and change its structure. The bone will become scalloped and uneven and bone volume will decrease. If you need a deep teeth cleaning, you will have bone loss that is visible on an x-ray. Your dentist will be able to show you on the x-ray where your bone is, and where it should be. At this point, the damage is irreversible. But it’s important to stop it before it gets worse.

If you have both periodontal pockets and bone loss, you need a deep cleaning. However, you may not have bad breath or gum bleeding. Not all symptoms are required for a definitive diagnosis. The two most important signs to look for are those that your dentist will look for.

If in doubt, get a second opinion and ask the dentist to show you the periodontal pockets and bone loss. This will be very easy for them to do and give you peace of mind knowing that your diagnosis is accurate.

If you’re unsure of whether or not you need a deep teeth cleaning, schedule an appointment with our dentist in Harrow, Middlesex. We’ll be happy to confirm your diagnosis and deep clean your teeth.

Composite Bonding Dental

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.

Hygiene & Air Polish

Preventative dentistry, provided by your hygienist, plays a vital role in protecting your oral health. Regular treatments from a hygienist combined with dental check-ups can greatly improve oral health and the overall appearance of your teeth. Airflow polishing is a hygiene treatment that effectively removes stains on the front and back of teeth, leaving you with a smile to be proud of.

Elimination of Stubborn Stains

Certain foods, drinks and medications, as well as smoking, can result in stained teeth. These stubborn stains can be removed using the AIR-FLOW system, a combination of water, compressed air and fine powder particles that quickly and comfortably clean and polish teeth, even those areas that are difficult to access. This fast, comfortable method of teeth cleaning is suitable for most patients, including those with sensitive teeth, implants, bridges, veneers and crowns. So you can show off your clean smile in no time.

Benefits of Airpolish

An Airpolish treatment is a quick and easy way to have pesky general stains removed from your teeth.

  • gently removes plaque – helping to prevent gum disease
  • if done before a teeth whitening treatment can improve the overall effectiveness of the whitening
  • a gentler way to remove stains than traditional stain removal treatments, a great idea for anyone nervous of a hygiene appointment

You can just come in and have this treatment done – we’d love to see you for a clean and polish before a big event or just to help you look and feel great.

With This Week Promising To Be A ‘Scorcher’, Our Neem Dentists, Harrow/Wembley Offer Some Timely Advice.

If the weather reports are anywhere near accurate, this week we are likely to see temperatures reaching 30 degrees and possibly beyond. These temperatures are more typical of places like Rome and Athens than Harrow / Wembley!

We shouldn’t complain though given the unreliability of the British weather, but these temperatures don’t come without risks and we need to protect our teeth and gums when the weather gets hot.

Below, we offer our patients some basic but useful tips.

1 – Don’t use the weather to skip your dental appointment. If you have an appointment made for a check-up at Neem Dental Clinic, Harrow, please keep it. Postponing it until it cools down may result in a longer delay than you intend. We will do our best to see you as soon as we can when you come, so that you can get back out in the sun.

2 – Stay well hydrated. It is easy to become dehydrated in the hot weather and this is bad for our general health but also for our gums. Gum disease is more likely to be present in people with a dry mouth so try to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

3 – Curb those World Cup celebrations – beer is OK in moderation, but a combination of hot weather and a Euro Cup means that some people will drink a lot more than usual. The risks of accidents rise when this happens, and, as we know, alcohol also causes a dry mouth (see above).

4 – Remember to brush – The heat can be draining, especially if it is also humid. Tiredness can then easily cause us to skip brushing our teeth at night before we go to bed because we are ‘too tired’. You should never be too tired to brush your teeth; it only takes a few minutes and is the most essential thing you can do to avoid tooth decay.

5 – Restrict your ice creams – As well as beer, the sale of ice creams and soft drinks tend to rise during the hotter weather. We all know that these are high in sugar and will damage our teeth if eaten and drunk in excess. Try to replace soft drinks with water as much as you can and keep the number of ice creams down to a sensible level. If you notice, whilst eating ice cream or drinking anything really cold, that your teeth feel really sensitive, you could have damaged your teeth; so please make an appointment at our Neem dental clinic if you notice this.

By all means, do enjoy this rare heatwave and have a good time, but don’t forget that your teeth could suffer if you don’t take sufficient care.

Following the above guidelines is a good start, along with common sense of course. If you have any problems with your teeth during the hot weather, or at any time, please call the Neem Dental Clinic, Harrow for an appointment on 020 8423 2523.

Composite Bonding Dental Internal bleaching Non-Vital Front Tooth Saturday Appointment Teeth Teeth Whitening

Non-Vital Front Tooth: What Should I Do Now? (Dental Treatment Options)

A non-vital, or what some people may refer to as a “dead”, front tooth can stand out as an eyesore and may even signal a dangerous dental infection. If you have a tooth that you suspect is non-vital, then you should get it looked at right away.

The sooner you schedule a consultation for a suspicious-looking tooth, the sooner you can get treatment that will save your smile.

What Makes a Tooth become ‘Non-Vital” and darken?

Teeth are living parts of your body. They have hollow pulp chambers on the inside that are filled with nerves and blood vessels. If the pulp chamber in a tooth is damaged by disease or trauma, it can trigger an infection in the nerve of the tooth. As the infection progresses, the nerve dies, and the pulp chamber darkens which leaves a bruise-like stain that shows through the tooth.

A disruption in tooth vitality can be caused by things like an untreated cavity, a dental abscess, or a sports injury that happened decades earlier.

Whether you can recall what may have caused you to have a non-vital front tooth or not, the next important step is to get it treated.

Signs of a Non-Vital Front Tooth

Non-vital teeth can present with any of the following symptoms:

  • Gray, brown, or black discoloration in part or all of the tooth
  • Bad breath
  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Pain
  • Sensitivity

Pain and discoloration are the two main symptoms that your tooth may become non-vital. A tooth can go through this process slowly or suddenly, and the resulting discoloration and discomfort can likewise come on at a similar pace. It is, however, possible for a tooth to become non-vital without causing you any pain. This is why you should always discuss changes in tooth color with your dentist even if the tooth doesn’t hurt.

What are your options to treat the tooth and prevent it from falling out? Your tooth may qualify for one or more of the following procedures.

Root Canal

A root canal is a procedure in which the dentist removes the infected and inflamed nerve. The pulp chamber and root are cleaned out and filled with a material that seals out bacteria. This process relieves your tooth of pain and prevents the infection from spreading to your gums and other teeth in your mouth.

Your treatment doesn’t just end with a root canal, however. You’ll need some more help in restoring your tooth’s strength and natural color.

Bleaching

Most teeth whitening systems work by removing stains that settle into tooth enamel from the outside of your tooth. This doesn’t work for deteriorating teeth that are stained from the inside. Your tooth may respond well to an internal bleaching procedure that only dentists can provide. Internal bleaching lightens stains on non-vital teeth from the innermost layers.

The non-vital teeth whitening procedure:

In order to achieve satisfactory colour results for non-vital teeth, it can be necessary to bleach them from the inside out. Following a radiography examination, the dentist will place the whitening gel either in a tray or inside the back of the tooth. Many patients see the results of non-vital teeth whitening in a few days but achieving satisfactory results depends on a number of factors and more time may be required and more than one application. If the gel is placed within the tooth the access cavity will need to be sealed with a small composite filling on completion.

Dental Crown

Non-vital teeth are often very weak as a result of an injury or cavity. They become even more brittle after a root canal procedure. It’s very likely that your tooth will need a dental crown.

Crowns serve two purposes. First of all, they strengthen and protect weak teeth. Secondly, they completely cover up dark stains in tooth enamel that don’t come out with professional teeth bleaching procedures.

Your dental crown will be made from a beautiful ceramic material to imitate the color and texture of natural teeth. With a dental “cap” on your non-vital front tooth, you can smile with confidence again.
