Treatments > Restorative treatments

All dental treatment should improve your smile.  But there are options today  which are purely to make teeth straighter, more even or whiter.  We invest in equipment and materials which enable us to provide the very latest cosmetic treatments.

Fillings

The materials used depend on the position of the tooth and the size and depth of the cavity to be filled. Amalgam is still a popular choice for back teeth. Composite resin is tooth-coloured which is useful for front fillings and small back fillings. If you have a very large old metal filling the ultimate way of restoring it is to place a ceramic restoration. This will look natural, be very strong and is likely to prevent further breakdown of the remaining tooth walls.

Crowns

Crowns (also known as caps), inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are placed in or over a tooth, when that tooth has lost a significant portion of its structure either from extensive decay or trauma. Inlays and onlays are like partial crowns, and are now usually made out of porcelain.

Crowns restore teeth to their natural shape, size and colour and enhance the overall health of your mouth. Crowns can also whiten, reshape, and realign existing teeth. Where back teeth have large broken-down fillings, a crown, inlays or onlays can protect and preserve the remaining natural tooth.

We now use Cerec technology to make many of these crowns as it uses state of the art technology to provide you with a strong precisely fitting ceramic crown, which will look and feel like a natural tooth adding to a healthy and vibrant smile.

Bridges

A bridge is a custom-made artificial tooth that fills in the gap where a tooth or teeth are missing, and attaches to the two teeth on either side. The replacement tooth or teeth are either attached to crowns placed on either side of the missing teeth, attached to the adjacent teeth with wing like appendages, or supported by dental implants. Bridges can be made of tooth-coloured material, metal or a combination of both.

Root canal

A skilled and precise procedure which involves removing the infected pulp from the centre of the tooth and replacing it with a synthetic material. Root canal treatments saves the tooth but afterwards it is likely to require a crown to strengthen it.

Dentures

Dentures are a removable solution for missing teeth. There are two types of denture. Chrome cobalt dentures are made of metal and have clasps for better retention. This type is suitable for a partial denture. The other type is made of acrylic and is used for full or partial dentures.
