We Composite Bonding! We recently attended an inspiring course by the talented Mr Nadeem Younis, where we picked up some fantastic tips on re-creating natural effects in teeth when rebuilding them out of composite resin.
For those of us interested in science and nature teeth are fascinating little beasts; a hard, glassy translucent enamel layer featuring microscopic bumps, cracks, and undulations, then underneath this a living, off-white dentine layer, and in the centre of each tooth a tiny nerve that certainly lets us know when we’re abusing our teeth! On the course we learned how to rebuild teeth in layers to mimic the natural structure of the tooth and give a harmonious appearance.
The technique is known as Composite Bonding and is a state of the art, non destructive and versatile way of creating beautiful smiles. We can create that smile you’ve always wanted by closing those annoying little gaps, lengthen short teeth, rebuild badly broken teeth, reshape teeth and even make crowded or crooked teeth appear straight, often avoiding the need for braces. Here are some photos of the day…
We love Composite Bonding because it is ‘additive’ or ‘non-destructive’ – unlike porcelain veneers we often don’t need to drill the teeth. Also in most cases the procedure avoids the need for a local anaesthetic – so NO needles! We love Composite Bonding because it enables us to make the teeth as natural as the patient would like. It’s the ideal material for a designer smile, as it can be adjusted, added to, rounded off, squared off or just about any shape you want!
Over the next few weeks we’ll be blogging some case photographs to show you just what composite can do, so watch this space. Also check out our gallery pages for some of our recent cases. If you’re interested in getting the smile you’ve always wanted call our brilliant team on 0151 486 2697.
