This branch of dentistry takes a holistic view of your mouth; a thorough examination is carried out before a comprehensive treatment plan is devised.
White teeth are not a dream, they could be a reality. Everyone wants a white healthy smile. Yellow and discolored teeth can easily be treated with our home bleaching systems.
An initial consultation and assessment could enable you to look your best.
A composite filling is a tooth-coloured resin and glass mixture used to restore decayed or broken teeth. By using enamel and dentin bonding techniques, white fillings restore teeth that have become damaged as a result of tooth decay or injury. White fillings are used as an alternative to amalgam (silver) fillings and give a more pleasing appearance.
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a 'cap'. Crowns are an ideal way to repair teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials and new materials are continually being introduced.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Sometimes a natural-colour 'composite' material is used instead of porcelain. Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and are held in place by a special, strong adhesive, very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of veneers don't need any preparation at all.
Teeth whitening, white fillings, crowns, bridges and veneers are all available at Bramcote Dental Practice to create your perfect smile.
