Looking just like natural teeth
A dental crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or have a very large filling. The crown fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. It will also be tooth coloured, giving the restoration a more natural appearance so it fits in with the rest of your teeth.
A crown could be a good solution for you if you have large, discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more aesthetic smile. Also, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth.
How long a crown lasts depends on how well it is looked after. It is important to keep this area just as clean as you would your natural teeth in order to prevent decay affecting the crown. Here at Brixworth Dental Practice we recommend regular six monthly dental examinations and hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stays in good health.
Re-create a lovely, natural smile.
If you have discoloured, chipped or irregular shaped teeth, dental veneers can be used to re- create a lovely natural smile. Dental veneers are wafer thin yet strong and durable porcelain laminates that are fixed to your natural teeth. Shaped to perfectly mask and disguise imperfections, dental veneers will function as a normal tooth when you eat and their durable and strong material mean you can continue to bite, chew and enjoy all your favourite foods without worrying about the consequences.
If you don’t feel confident when you smile, maybe because your teeth are discoloured, chipped or uneven, then dental veneers are your answer. They are also perfect if your teeth are just a little twisted or you’ve been looking for a solution without the need for orthodontics or braces.
By removing the smallest amount of enamel from the front of your tooth and replacing it with a thin porcelain shell, which is bonded onto your existing tooth, you are left with a strong, straight and natural-looking smile.
Close the gap for a more youthful smile.
Dental Bridges are used to replace lost teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant and fill in the gaps in your smile.
Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth by using one or both neighbouring teeth as anchors. The dental bridge is cemented to the anchor teeth and is fixed in place so that you can smile, laugh and eat with confidence. Your bridge will perform much like your natural teeth.
How long a dental bridge lasts depends on how well it is looked after. It is important to keep this area just as clean as you would your natural teeth in order to prevent decay affecting the bridge. At Brixworth Dental Practice we recommend regular six monthly dental examinations and hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stays in good health.
Why and how?
Root Canal treatments are carried out when the inside of the tooth (the root or pulp) becomes infected or damaged.
Infection and damage to the root can be very painful, creating inflammation with the risk of severe pain and swelling. Root Canal Treatment eliminates the cause of the pain by completely removing the diseased or damaged tissue from the tooth. The root canal is meticulously cleaned, shaped and decontaminated, before securely filling it back up with a durable, inert material. This means you can be pain free whilst still keeping your original tooth.
There have been great innovations in the last few years to improve the comfort, speed and efficiency of this treatment. Our dentists are experienced, highly skilled and keep up-to-date with the most current concepts in Root Canal Treatment to ensure that they deliver the best possible care for our patients.
Smile and eat with confidence again
Create the smile and facial structure you want with hand-crafted, natural looking dentures.
If you have lost most or even all your teeth, have an awkward overbite or old worn-out dentures (false teeth), there are many options available for replacing missing teeth. Flat pink dentures are a thing of the past as we now hand craft dentures so they look realistic enough to convince even the most discerning onlooker that they are looking at natural teeth and gums.
The loss of teeth can have a negative effect on your self-confidence and impact your ability to chew food properly. Your teeth also provide structure and support to your face and cheeks, tooth loss can result in sagging face cheeks and make you appear much older that you are. Natural looking dentures can greatly improve the quality of a wearer’s life.
It is important to visit your dentist regularly even if you have no natural teeth, as your dentist checks more than your teeth. At Brixworth Dental Practice we check the soft tissue parts of your mouth including the tongue and cheeks. It is important to spot any infections or mouth conditions at the earliest stage.
