    Dental treatments

    dental treatments romford
    We offer a comprehensive range of dental treatments as well as cosmetic enhancements, smile makeovers and implants for missing teeth.

     

    Fillings, inlays & onlays

    There are various types of filling materials available for use and each type of filling material has it’s own merits depending on the individual application.

    White fillings can be shaped and matched to the original tooth achieving a very natural look and the material used is mercury free.
    Amalgam, (metal fillings) although still used, are often bypassed in favour of laboratory made inlays or onlays that are much stronger and last longer. The procedure for these laboratory made restorations is the same as that of a crown but more of the natural tooth is retained.

     

    Veneers

    Venveneers in romford dentisteers are thin porcelain facings bonded to the front surface of teeth and are used to cover natural defects such as, mis-shapen teeth, colour variations (where bleaching is unsuitable) and enamel cracks. Often veneers are described as being similar to a “false fingernail” and are similar in the respect that both are simply a thin covering of material bonded to the existing structure. There is minimal invasion of the natural teeth and the finish visually stunning.

    crowns in romford

    Crowns

    If a tooth is badly broken it may need a crown, also known as a cap. A crown completely covers all surfaces of the natural tooth. After some preparation, an impression is taken to enable the manufacture of a precision made crown which is bonded in place completing the restoration. Crowns are tooth coloured or made of gold for added strength.

    Dental implants

    Dental implants can be used to replace either one or many missing teeth.

    They are the preferred choice where dentures are deemed unsuitable or disliked. If looked after well they can be a permanent solution without affecting any adjacent teeth.
    A dental implant is usually a small metal screw which is placed in the upper or lower jawbone where the natural teeth have been lost. Implants are made from pure titanium which “integrates” with the surrounding bone to provide a firm foundation for the replacement of missing teeth. Once the implant is integrated with the bone (a process known as osseointegration) it is ready to carry a crown or other structure. Implants can replace teeth individually or help stabilise poorly retained dentures.

    Dental bridges

    If one or more teeth have been lost, a bridge can be custom-made in a laboratory. There are different types, but the fabrication of a bridge generally involves the teeth either side of the gap being prepared for the fitting of two crowns carrying a replacement tooth in the centre, thus eliminating the gap. Bridges can be made in various materials such as gold and ceramic.
    Cosmetic dentures are extremely natural looking and very comfortable to wear. We also have a a Specialist Prosthodontist within the practice, experienced in making cosmetic dentures.

    tooth-hygiene

    Dental hygiene

    Dental hygienists are experienced in the treatment and management of gum disease, they perform a very important role by supporting the dentist in preventive dentistry and assisting patients in nurturing healthy teeth and gums.

    Dental hygienists carry out complex periodontal (gum) treatments as well as simple polishing to remove unwanted stains. Routine hygiene treatment can bring about healthy gums and a brighter smile.
