Dental Tooth Bonding, artistic Re-Shaping and Cosmetic Contouring for your Teeth.
Direct cosmetic tooth bonding options, individual artistic precise shaping, natural smile proportions and cosmetic contouring for teeth, are modern yet minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry techniques that involve 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.
CORONA VIRUS & LOCKDOWN UPDATES - We are open and treating patients through to Christmas eve, despite Lockdown in England announced from Thurs 5th Nov, but with a reduced service still - many Dentists will continue operating a dramatically reduced service through to 2021, during this unprecedented crisis. We have been busy still working through backlogs of emergency & vulnerable patients at our Practice, to reach those now waiting for more advanced, routine and needed though yet non-urgent care.
Please remember even since March ALL our registered patients had access to our advice and care remotely by phone and Online means, until the worst effects of this crisis passes.You must complete our online triage questionnaires for your protection and our Staff and you will see we are adopting additional precautions and PPE etc, despite continued shortages and additional costs to us.
We are also providing SARS Covid-2 Antibody testing (high sensitivity) for all patients and staff seen currently at our Practice, to maximise safety for all.
We can only see patients not suffering the Covid19 illness, to protect everyone including staff.
There are local Urgent Referral Centres being set up so please call 111 if you have any Covid19 symptoms and a dental Emergency or Urgency that cannot wait or if you are NOT a patient of ours.
We thank you for your continued patience as we are following overall guidance from HMG and the BDA, even though Our Dental Practice is one of the safest places to be outside of your own home generally. Please leave your details on our answer machine by calling 01535644005. There are already waiting lists for routine appointments and we apologise for any temporary inconvenience.
However if you are already ill or have symptoms of fever and dry cough and/or have had contact with someone who has had such symptoms, then please self-isolate at home and call NHS 111 for advice first.
New patients or Referrals from Colleagues can still call 01535-644005 and leave their details and we'll add you to our referrals waiting list, so you get priority as we incorporate more routine appointments again. Thank you for your cooperation through this new way of working.

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.
