White fillings

£0.00

We are a totally mercury-free dental practice. We use only white, tooth-coloured materials to fill teeth.

Fillings and restorations may be required in decayed or fractured teeth, or to replace old or worn fillings.

White filling are bonded to the teeth using a bonding resin. Both the bonding resin and the filling material are cured by intense light, so you leave our practice with a filling you can use and eat on immediately. Composite fillings look almost identical to real teeth and once polished have the texture and feel of natural tooth material.

Crowns & Dental Veneers

£0.00

Crowns

Crowns were used originally as a last resort over heavily filled, root-treated, or badly broken down teeth. Today crowns or caps are used to change the colour, shape, and position of the teeth. Crowns are tooth-shaped, thimble-like covers made to fit over prepared teeth or implants to restore natural function and aesthetics. They are made of materials such as plastic, stainless steel, brass, gold, porcelain, or bonded porcelain to metal. Each crown is made individually for each patient and their individual tooth. Porcelain has the best aesthetics and looks and feels the most natural.

Crowns are made by dental technicians from the impressions taken by the dentist. The crown is then fitted by the dentist.

Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain covers that are bonded onto the front of your teeth. They look entirely natural and are used to change the shape, or the appearance of discoloured, chipped, or crooked teeth, or to close small gaps between the teeth. They are placed on prepared teeth after the teeth have been minimally drilled down to a shape that can accept a veneer. The veneer is is then bonded to the tooth. Veneers have a natural appearance and feel in the mouth.

Bridges

£0.00

Bridges are a means of replacing missing teeth. There are different types of bridges. The most common type is where the replacement tooth/teeth are made as one unit with supporting crowns placed on the teeth on each side of the missing teeth gap, and the whole bridge is cemented in place.

The second type of bridge is where there is no tooth or the teeth on one side are too weak to support one end of the bridge. In this case the bridge may use the two or more teeth on just one side and the bridge is then cantilevered off the supporting teeth.

The third type of bridge is the Maryland or Fochet’s bridge fixes a false tooth into the gap with “wings” that fit onto the inside of the adjacent teeth. This type of bridge is usually a temporary treatment to maintain space while waiting for bone to regenerate or infection to clear before placing an implant or a permanent bridge.

Other methods of replacing teeth are by placing dentures or by placing dental implants.

Bridges may be made out of plastic, porcelain, bonded porcelain to metal, metal, or white composite filling material. We make all our bridges out of e-max for short bridges or porcelain with metal framework for longer span bridges.

Cosmetic composites
Cosmetic composites

Cosmetic composites

£0.00

Dental technology has advanced to the point where we are able to place beautiful, tooth-coloured fillings and facings into and onto teeth that can be polished to such a high degree that they look and feel like natural teeth. These new materials are called dental composites.

In our practice we use this new technology to build up and reshape teeth, and to change the shade of teeth, in the same way that we can with dental veneers and crowns. The material gives us the flexibility to add more or less material, at any stage, in order to get the result that our patients are most happy with. These cosmetic composites can be touched up and repolished to look like new, time after time if necessary.

We can also cover receding gum area and sensitive tooth necks with pink, gum coloured filling materials to restore the “long in the tooth” appearance.

Dentures

£0.00

Dentures are used to replace missing teeth, and/or to build up the bite so that the jaw relationship is improved. Modern dentures are lighter, stronger, and more comfortable. The teeth used today in all types of dentures are made of plastic so that the shape and colour resemble natural teeth very accurately. Dentures need to be removed from the mouth for cleaning the remaining teeth, gums and dentures.

Dentures can be full dentures that replace all the teeth in the upper and lower jaws or in just one jaw, or partial dentures that replace only some of the teeth, when not all the teeth have been lost. Dentures are made from a variety of materials, most commonly from plastic. They can also have a metal component that is usually a chrome-cobalt alloy.

Implants are often used to anchor and stabilise dentures and are called overdentures. These implants (and particularly in the lower jaw) may have balls, studs or bars attached to them to provide an anchor for the denture. These overdentures are extremely successful.
