With years of experience in dental practices and only using the highest quality of equipment, we have numerous repeat patients and strive for patient satisfaction.
We can offer you the following general dentistry treatments/procedures:
Our dental crown procedure is a restorative treatment that involves fitting a tooth-shaped cap over the top of a damaged or old tooth. By replacing it, it gives the tooth a new lease of life and is a minor treatment in comparison to tooth replacement. Dental crowns can be created using an array of different materials including ceramic and stainless steel. Alternatively, they can be made from a resin, which is similar to the resin found in white fillings. Dental crowns are aesthetically pleasing and one of the most popular procedures for damaged teeth.
An alternative to a dental bridge, dental implants are a durable and permanent solution to when you have lost a tooth/teeth or the tooth is beyond repair. Dental implants can restore your smile and will strengthen the overall structure of your teeth. You can either have single or multiple dental implants fitted – the type will, of course, depend on your individual needs. They can last over 10 years, involve a minor treatment and a short recovery/healing time.
Similarly to dental implants, bridges can be used as a solution to tooth loss/damaged teeth. Bridging the gap between the teeth, there are four main types of dental bridges available – traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, Maryland bonded bridges and Bridges that are supported by dental implants – the most appropriate type of dental bridge will be decided by your dentist. Alongside restoring your smile, they also prevent teeth from drifting and can help to restore your ability to speak and chew.
Composite fillings (also commonly known as white fillings and tooth-colored fillings) are fitted in order to repair, restore and protect your teeth. Composite fillings are made from a resin material that we have carefully crafted using a variety of materials, including quartz, porcelain and glass. More natural-looking, they are discrete and will fit the aesthetic of your smile. In order to ensure that it fits the look of your other teeth, our dentists will work with you to carefully design the shape and color.
Inlays and Onlays, on the other hand, require a more indirect form of treatment. They are created using the same materials and techniques, but they are designed to fit the cavity as a single piece.
