frequently asked question about cosmetic dentistry

What is Dental Bonding

Bonding involves the artistic use of highly aesthetic white filling materials to change the shape and sometimes shade of teeth. Bonding can repair chips, re-build worn teeth, close gaps and cover discoloration. ItÕs best used for less drastic changes but small changes often make a huge difference!


Simple yet very effective! Often whitening alone is enough to make big changes to a smile. Whitening works best on yellow teeth discoulored by tea, coffee or smoking. It can carried out quickly in-surgery or more economically via custom made take home systems.

What is Invisalign


Invisalign is a state-of-the-art clear aligner system that discreetly straightens your teeth using a series of almost invisible trays.

Invisalign is easily removed for eating, drinking and socialising

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner has been a revolution in dentistry.

It's ability to carry out rapid alignment of the front teeth, often in as little as 8-12 weeks has changed the way we think about aesthetic orthodontics.

The Inman Aligner applies a continuous, gentle pressure which quickly aligns crowded front teeth. Because it's removable it fits in with your lifestyle.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are custom made, wafer thin pieces of ceramic that fit over the front surface of teeth. Designed to look like naturally perfect teeth the veneers can align teeth, close gaps, lighten teeth and even repair broken down teeth.

James is at the forefront of new no-preparation techniques which mean that we often donÕt even need to remove any of the natural tooth at all!

Smile Makeovers

Dr James Russell has huge experience in providing smile makeovers.

A smile makeover often combines multiple problems and treatment that, when planned together, create a healthy and attractive smile. Complex cases can involve several different treatments to create the final smile makeover.

Hygiene, gum repositioning, whitening, veneers and crowns are often all involved.
