Veneers – Direct Bonding
Our dentist at Pembroke Dental, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 , Dr. Keenan has received a Post Graduate qualification in Cosmetic and Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry. Direct Boding is a speciality of his. Direct Bonding is a very cost effective way to place a highly aesthetic white filling (composite) directly on the front surface of the tooth to improve its appearance dramatically in one visit. The shape, angulation and appearance of the tooth can be changed easily. It is then highly polished at chairside and the patient can leave with a highly improved smile in a very short time.
What are Componeers?
Componeers are specially manufactured, very thin shells that can be fixed to the front of the front teeth to conceal aesthetic imperfections. Componeers can be compared with an artificial fingernail, but there is one very big difference – Componeer restorations are placed in one visit. YOU WILL LEAVE OUR DENTAL CLINIC IN D4 WITH A NEW SMILE IN ONE DAY. There is no need to use a laboratory to manufacture the veneers unlike their Porcelain contemporaries.
Why you’ll adore the new Componeers:
- Attractive teeth and a new smile after only one visit
- Very little removal of healthy tooth structure
- Individual customised shaping of the front teeth
- High quality permanent veneering material
- Shine can be refreshed by polishing at any time
- An economically attractive solution
Componeers are the high quality solution for:
- Unattractive front tooth malpositioning (e.g. twisted teeth)
- Large gaps between the front teeth (diastema)
- Front teeth with minor caries defects
- Severe tooth discolouration
- A wide range of anatomical malformations
- Broken tooth edges
- Conspicuous old fillings
A new smile achieved easily
With Componeers our Dublin dentist Dr. Keenan can make your smile more beautiful in only one session. Fast, with little effect on tooth structure. Three easy steps:
New Smile – Step 1
Dr. Keenan checks the condition of your front teeth, recommends the right Componeer shade and selects the correct Componeer shape with the template.
New Smile – Step 2
Then your teeth are prepared for veneering with Componeers. Your teeth will require very little preparation, because the tooth enamel shells are so incredibly thin. In general, very little tooth structure is lost.
New Smile – Step 3
Dr. Keenan will place the Componeer in the desired position, using the same material from which the enamel shells were made, and will complete the final shaping of the tooth for you.
At this point you can discuss adjustments to the shape and length you want and changes can be made on the spot. As the material sets the customised Componeer becomes securely fixed in position. The final step is to polish the tooth to match the others.
Porcelain Veneers – Dublin Dentist
If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or misaligned, Porcelain Veneers will give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth adjustment. A veneer is a porcelain facing on the front of your teeth usually your top teeth, it is just like a false finger nail.
Veneers are made out of porcelain and are used mainly for aesthetic reasons. Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed.
Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth (usually the upper ones) generally.
Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
