Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a conservative way of changing the shape, appearance and colour of teeth. A tooth coloured resin filling material is bonded to the teeth to improve their appearance without causing any damage to the tooth itself. This may be done to repair fractured or chipped teeth, to increased the size of teeth or to improve shape. The procedure is painless and usually done without the need for any drilling.

Price - from £200 per tooth

Examination

An examination or ‘check up’ is a full, comprehensive assessment to check your oral health and diagnose any disease and create a treatment plan to restore and maintain your oral health.

During this examination appointment, we start off by listening to your concerns and anything you would like to discuss regarding your oral health and/ or cosmetics. It enables us to understand you better to enable us to tailor any treatment plan to your wants and needs.

A thorough examination of the head and neck, face, jaw and mouth is carried out. In the mouth, we check for signs of gum disease, oral cancer and tooth decay for which digital dental x-rays are taken to help us find any abnormalities. Any findings are discussed in detail with you by our general dentist Dr. Sejil Karim and all treatment options are explained to you and any questions answered.

Advice is also given on prevention to allow you to better maintain your oral health for the future.

Hygiene

Oral hygiene is key to a health mouth. A hygiene clean is a professional clean carried out to removal plaque, calculus and staining on teeth to improve and maintain healthy gums.

Gum Disease (gingivitis) is very common and presents itself through bleeding gums, sensitivity, recession and pain when brushing. Gingivitis is reversible and very treatable through oral hygiene instructions, demonstration and education.

If gum disease persists, it can lead to a more severe form of gum disease called periodontitis. This can lead to loss of bone, the supporting structure of teeth, which can result in pain, infections, wobbly teeth and eventually tooth loss.

A hygiene clean is recommended twice yearly to sustain optimal gum health.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treatment is a procedure carried out to treat infection at the centre of the tooth.

All teeth have a nerve supply which allows us to feel sensations such as pain, hot and cold. This nerve is contained at the core of the tooth and is supplied through canals in the root of the tooth. The nerve can die or become infected through bacteria in tooth decay, trauma or gum disease leading to toothache and possible swelling or abscess formation.

Root canal treatment is an option to treat the infection and therefore save the tooth in question which may otherwise have needed to be removed. The procedure involves the use of fine instruments to carefully remove the dead or exposed nerve and disinfect the canals. Once disinfected and cleaned thoroughly, the canals are then sealed with rubber-like fillings to prevent any re-contamination. The tooth is then restored back to normal function with a filling or a crown.

Root canal treatment generally has high success rates and can ultimately prevent the loss of a tooth. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic so that you do not feel pain during treatment.

Extraction

Extraction is the removal of a tooth from the oral cavity. This treatment is usually carried out when a tooth has an infection due to dental decay, gum disease or is beyond salvage.

There are many factors that determine if a tooth is restorable; this includes whether there is sufficient remaining tooth structure to support a filling or a crown, or if there is enough bone and gums to support the tooth.

The procedure is not painful as local anaesthetic is given to numb the tooth. There may be some soreness after the anaesthetic wears off which should be manageable with painkillers. Post operative instructions should be followed to promote smooth healing to the area following the extraction.

All treatment options will be discussed with you so that you can make an informed decision before a tooth is taken out and replacement options explained thoroughly so that you can decide which is most suitable to you. Treatment options of the gap following removal of a tooth are as follows:

  • Do nothing and leave the gap
  • Denture
  • Bridge
  • Implant

We are able to provide immediate replacement so that you are not left with a gap after the tooth is removed.

Periodontics

Periodontics is the term used to describe gum disease. There is a whole spectrum of gum disease which can be mild and reversible to severe and irreversible.

If gum disease persists for a long time it can lead to loss of the supporting structures of teeth namely the bone and gums and can result in a tooth becoming loose or infected, eventually leading to the need for removal of the tooth. Symptoms of gum disease include bleeding, recession, sensitivity, mobility and even loss of a tooth. The gums can appear red and swollen and often is associated with pain.

Root Surface Debridement is a procedure carried out to clean below the gum line using specialised equipment to remove plaque deposits and eliminate the bacteria responsible for causing gum disease. This procedure is sometimes painful and can be carried out using local anaesthetic.

Price - from £150 per session

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are laboratory made thin layers of porcelain which are placed to cover the whole of the front aspect of the tooth to improve appearance.

Porcelain is a stronger and longer-lasting material than composite and can look more aesthetic in comparison to composite. Porcelain veneers do, however, require a minimal amount of tooth reduction to create space for the veneer to be applied.

Benefits of porcelain veneers

  • Veneers enable a quick way and guaranteed way to whiten and correct any minor discrepancies in tooth shape.
  • Minor orthodontic discrepancies can be camouflaged with porcelain veneers which could be of benefit particularly if you are not keen on having any orthodontic treatment
  • If there are any defects or deeper stains, it sometimes can be hard to mask with whitening or composite veneers. Similarly if the underlying enamel has been damaged, porcelain veneers can be used to improve the appearance shape and symmetry of your smile

Disadvantages of Veneers

  • Porcelain veneers can be more costly than other forms of smile makeover treatments such as composite bonding as the veneers are made and processed in a specialised lab by a master ceramist.
  • As some of the tooth structure is being adjusted and removed, it is an irreversible procedure whereas composite bonding is less invasive.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the most effective and conservative way of improving your smile without causing any irreversible damage to your teeth. It is very effective at improving the colour of teeth with minimal discomfort. Tooth whitening may need to be topped up every 6 months depending on your diet.

 Teeth Whitening

Crowns

Crowns are ‘caps’ which are placed to cover the whole tooth surface when the tooth structure has been weakened due to decay, fractures or existing fillings. A crown protects the tooth from further breakage and is also used for cosmetic purposes. They are usually made out of porcelain but can also be made in metal silver or gold

 Crowns

Implants

Implants are usually titanium based cylinders which are placed into the jaw bone to support a crown. These are placed where a tooth may have been extracted or may genetically be missing. They are the most assured and long lasting form of tooth replacement.

During the procedure, the area is numbed and the gum is opened using a flap. The implant is then placed into the jaw bone and allowed to heal over a period of approximately 3 months. Once the implant has integrated into the jaw bone an impression is taken to place a crown on top of the implant to replace the tooth.
