Bridges are a way to replace a missing tooth without the need to wear a denture. The missing tooth is anchored to one or both of the neighbouring teeth and again can be beautifully shade matched. If you want your teeth to appear less crowded, lack chips and fractures, have decreased overlaps or to be without pits or grooves in the enamel, this procedure should be discussed with your cosmetic dentist. With a little dental contouring, you can make a huge difference in the way you feel about your smile. Good cosmetic dentistry can give you a smile that is the envy of others. Tooth contouring by a cosmetic dentist does require that you have normal, healthy teeth.
Crowns-are used to strengthen a damaged or weakened tooth by sitting like a “cap” over the top .They can be made to very accurately match the shade of your other teeth. They can also be used to change the shape and alignment of other teeth.
Imagine a dental practice where you can go and have your new false tooth made and fitted during a single visit and within an hour. This is what CEREC technology by Sirona Dental Systems UK has made possible. CEREC is a revolutionary system that enables your dentist to design, fabricate and fit a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay in a single visit, a procedure that would normally take at least two weeks, if not more! See our Cerec Gallery.
Implants –are another alternative to replace a missing tooth. A precision made post is placed in the jaw bone to which a porcelain tooth is fitted. This does not need support from neighbouring teeth. Implants can also be used to stabilise full dentures.
Tooth coloured composite fillings
We can make your fillings look like natural teeth so that they are virtually invisible. Composite fillings can also be used to slightly reshape teeth or close small gaps for a relatively small cost.
Tooth whitening-more and more people are requesting whiter teeth and this is a very simple procedure in most cases. The treatment is safe, easy and very cost effective. Closely fitting trays are made and then a whitening gel is placed in them. They are then worn overnight for a period of 10-21 days during which time the teeth will gradually lighten. Read more.
Veneers-are a very thin porcelain cover which fits precisely over the visible surfaces of the front teeth. They are aperfect way to treat cracks, chips misshaped or discoloured teeth. They are also an excellent way of closing gaps between teeth.
Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment-this is a routine treatment which helps to retain a tooth when the nerve has died or the tooth has become infected. By removing the nerve, cleaning and filling the root canal the tooth can be preserved. In most cases a root filled tooth will subsequently need to be crowned to strengthen it.
96 % of the population have got some degree of gum disease. The chances are that you do. Many people who are regular attendees to the dentist have never been told if they have gum disease or not. IT IS IMPORTANT. Gum disease causes bad breath and ultimately teeth to become loose. It is also linked to heart disease and premature babies. FACT: 100% of hygienists DON’T have gum disease. We will give you a percentage score of your gum health every time you have an examination. We will then help you to fight it.
Studies have shown that approximately 40% of the population snore and this increases to 60% in men above the age of 60. Snoring devices work by moving the lower jaw forwards during sleep and preventing vibrations in the back of the airway.
Treatment of headaches
Clenching or grinding you teeth exerts very powerful forces on your teeth and jaws and can damage both plus lead to headaches or migraines. Wearing a small plastic splint for a while at night can often act as a “habit breaker” and stop the damaging forces of clenching.
