He’d been eating a boiled sweet. He was not only embarrassed by how it looked but was also anxious to have the tooth restored to be fully functional again. He feared the whole procedure would require an expensive crown.
He too was delighted, when within 30 minutes we had restored his tooth to its former glory, and again - with no injections or drilling and at less than half the cost of a crown.
She wanted her dull teeth, and in particular discoloured crowns, whitened, but we couldn't use tooth whitening treatment as this doesn’t work on crowns and so would have left her teeth all different shades.
She was over the moon when after just one appointment she left us with a perfectly white smile, and again - treatment was quick, painless and cost-effective.
It sounds almost too good to be true, but actually these clients all had one thing in common - we were able to achieve their remarkable results using composite artistry.
Composite artistry is a new, advanced technique that allows dentists to quickly fix problem smiles using a blend of art and science.
Using a versatile tooth-coloured material that’s bonded to the teeth, the appearance of anything from cracked, chipped, worn, stained or discoloured teeth, to gaps, problematic tooth proportions and shapes, even entire smiles can be transformed.
It gives aesthetic and functional results that rival those of more traditional porcelain crowns and veneers.
How long it lasts depends on the individual - if cared for correctly it will last around 5-8 years.
Advanced training is required to be able to deliver this technique, but few dentists make this investment.
That means Composite artistry is not available in every dental practice.
As a practice committed to keeping up to date with the latest dental advances, however, I took time out to learn this art in San Francisco from the world’s leading expert, Dr Newton Fahl of Curitiba, Brazil.
They say practice makes perfect and with years of delivering this treatment we have gained the experience, knowledge and artistic creativity to achieve some incredible results.
Cosmetic artistry really is an art form. If you’re not convinced, here are some of the skills a dentist needs to master if they are to achieve a natural-looking result -
