Dental Bonding, Re-Shaping and Contouring Teeth.
Direct cosmetic tooth bonding, involves using various generations of enamel and dentine bonding cosmetic techniques, using our 30+ years of Specialist Dentistry skills and advanced technology with Composites, Ormocers, Ceramics and Hybrids too. These have given Dentistry many more conservative Cosmetic Bonding restorative options, that are beautiful and artistic also.

Cosmetic & Dental Bonding
This describes the procedure where various dental restorations are glued to tooth substance, improving the seal and retention of a number of Dental materials, especially useful for cosmetic cases. We would recommend that ANY Whitening or Bleaching procedures are done first, so that any "NEW" bonding work can be done to match the new whiter shade of your bleached teeth (see pictures below).
Bonding enables your dentist to reduce spaces between your teeth, lengthen small or mis-shapen teeth or whiten stained or darkened teeth by bonding tooth-coloured materials matched to your own tooth shade. A single tooth can be shaped and coloured, or your entire smile can be changed using the latest cosmetic dental materials and dental bonding agents.
The Pictures below show how "bonding" can restore the looks and function of teeth, without drilling!
When teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, bonding can protect them from damage and restore their original look. Bonding your teeth with resin can be a one-appointment procedure, eg: First, teeth are slightly roughened and a conditioning gel is applied. Then a bonding resin is placed on the teeth (enamel/dentine) and is crafted to the desired shape. A high-intensity blue light then hardens the resin, bonding it to the teeth. Once in place, bonded restorations are very strong. Bonding can greatly improve the appearance of your teeth, resulting in a more beautiful, natural-looking smile! However, strong or worn bites may be unsuitable for this one visit procedure.
There are other systems too that use bonding technology, but these will usually need 2 or more visits and will use various laboratory ceramics and porcelains. This increases the treatment time and the price, but may give a longer lasting improvement than bonded resins alone. Dr.Kilcoyne is a registered Specialist* for this type of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Dentistry! Only your own Dentist or Specialist can discuss which options suit you best, after they have examined you.
The patient above didn't like "dracula" Canine tooth near front - so Dr.Kilcoyne applies his special bonding and artistry techniques - this results in a natural cosmetic tooth appearance where the canine is also disguised as the missing lateral incisor. We can give you the options that suit you best AND deliver these to our Specialist Standards, so you can have a nicer, natural Smile as wished for!
Only your Dentist or Specialist can give you individual advice after examining you.
