Dentures

denturesReplacing lost or missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health and appearance.

A complete or full denture replaces the natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips.

Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older and reduce their ability to eat and speak.

Decay Detection

decay detectionIn addition to providing all the treatments you expect from a modern dental practice, we find that prevention is the best approach to avoiding tooth loss or the need for fillings. Since three out of four teeth are lost through gum disease, it's clear why we put such emphasis on the early identification and cure of any gum disorder. With mouth cancer being diagnosed in around 5,000 people each year in the UK, and early detection and treatment considerably increasing survival chances, regular dental visits are highly recommended.During your consultation we will discuss your dental health and any concerns regarding your teeth and smile, followed by an assessment of the health of your gums, cheeks, tongue, lips and teeth and check that any previous dental work continues to fulfil its purpose.

The long term survival of your natural smile and the opportunity for any cosmetic renovation is dependant on the support of healthy gums.

Their upkeep is the remit of our hygienist who will undertake a thorough cleaning of your mouth during your hygiene session. Every trace of bacterial plaque that builds up between visits - contributing to decay, gum disease and bad breath - will be removed, leaving your mouth healthy and smelling fresh.

Crowns

A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. They can be made from many different materials from porcelain to gold.

A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:

  • you may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
  • you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it
  • it may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.

Broken Teeth

Sometimes instead of a porcelain veneer, a natural colour ‘composite’ material is used. A natural-coloured filling material can be used for minor repairs to front teeth like chipped or broken tooth corners.

Testimonial

In recent years my front lower teeth had become worn down and uneven. Their appearance was less than perfect and their function impaired. At the suggestion of my dentist, Dr Andrew Michalcewicz, I had cosmetic treatment to restore them. The process was carried out very effectively over a short period of time, and the result is excellent. I am very pleased with both the visual improvement and my ability to eat!

Thank you!

Bridges

A dental bridge is usually used where there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth.

You should replace missing teeth for a number of reasons. Your appearance is one reason. Another is that the gap left by a missing tooth can mean greater strain is put on the teeth at either side.
