Restorative Dentistry

Prevention is undoubtedly better and more cost-effective than the cure when it comes to ensuring your ongoing dental health.

Sometimes however, teeth deteriorate and break –  meaning we must restore the area and restore normal function. This can be done via a root canal procedure or with dental crowns, amongst many other restorative dentistry techniques. Restorative dental treatments today encompass all the disciplines that dentistry has to offer. That’s where our expertise and experience in these disciplines enable us to achieve the best possible long-term results for all our patients.

What Does Restorative Dental Care Include?

Restorative dental care may can include a variety of treatments, including:

  • Tooth whitening
  • Braces
  • Root treatments
  • Fillings
  • Crowns & Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Plastic gum surgery
  • Bone grafting and gum rebuilding

Alongside the treatments listed above, dental implants, periodontal treatment, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics and endodontics all play a key role in getting the best restorative results for our patients.

Root Canal Treatments

Root canal treatment is used to treat infection at the centre of a tooth. This centre is called the root canal system – hence the name – and is filled with soft tissue. This connective tissue helps to nurture the root of your tooth during your early development, but is unessential in adult life.

Dental Crowns Service

You may also hear crowns being referred to as ‘caps’. This is an adequate description of what a crown does to. It sits on top of an existing tooth, restoring the shape, function, colour and size of your original tooth. You would choose a crown if:

  • You have had root canal treatment
  • Your tooth is vulnerable to decay
  • You have a discoloured tooth
  • You are generally unhappy with a certain tooth’s appearance
  • Your tooth is misshapen
  • Your tooth affects the way you bite and eat your food
  • You wish to improve the appearance of a filling

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is made by putting crowns on the teeth at either side of the space and then joining these two crowns together by placing a false tooth in the space. Once fitted the bridge cannot be removed and so requires careful cleaning. You need to clean your bridge every day, to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. You also have to clean under the false tooth every day. Your dentist or hygienist will show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss, as a normal toothbrush cannot reach.

Dental bridges offer a lifelike replacement for a missing tooth by using the support of nearby natural teeth or the support of implants. Our dentist can offer dental bridges as a fixed solution to restore your smile and your ability to speak, bite and chew properly, thus maintaining the shape of your face and preventing your remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and Onlays are alternatives to fillings. Fillings start soft and are carved to shape in the mouth. Inlays and onlays are made outside the mouth usually in a dental laboratory and then glued to the tooth in the surgery.

An 'inlay' sits in a hole in the tooth. An 'onlay' sits on the tooth and builds up its shape. Inlays ad onlays can be made in tooth coloured porcelain, gold or material called composite. Different materials are suitable for different parts of the mouth and different parts of the teeth.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treatment is required if the dental pulp (or central layer) of your tooth has become infected or inflamed and cannot be saved. This normally arises as a result of advanced decay, a deep filling or a severe crack or fracture to the tooth due to a trauma. Occasionally it can be a result of gum disease. The main symptom of a pulp infection is tooth pain and increased sensitivity to hot or cold. The tooth may become discoloured and the gum can swell and feel tender. You may also find that you have a metallic taste in your mouth. Sometimes, there are no symptoms at all.

Root canal treatment normally takes place over several visits. The length of treatment will depend on your case and the tooth that is being treated. Front teeth normally contain just one root canal whereas the back teeth can have up to four- so will take longer to treat. If more than one appointment is required they will normally be spaced over weekly intervals. Your tooth will be covered and temporarily restored in between appointments. Unless absolutely necessary the extraction of a tooth should be avoided. A root canal treatment is a successful, safe and long-term way of helping to save a tooth which would otherwise need to be extracted.

Teeth are held in the jaw by their roots. Front teeth normally have one root but teeth further back in your mouth will have two, three or four. Inside, there are nerves and a blood supply in the 'root canal'. When the tooth is healthy the nerves are alive but decay or injury can cause the nerves to die. A dead nerve inside a tooth can cause an abscess at the end of a root. Root filling means removing damaged or dead nerves and filling the space left. The remaining tooth can then be repaired. Usually needing a root canal treatment would have meant you were experiencing a high level of discomfort in your mouth which, if untreated, could ultimately lead to the loss of the tooth.

Cosmetic Veneers

Porcelain veneers are hand crafted, often wafer thin and cover the front surface of the tooth, and they are used to rectify many defects and irregularities. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental to solution to improving the appearance of your teeth in a very short period of time. A veneer is a very thin layer of porcelain applied to the front surface of your tooth to improve its’ appearance and disguise the irregularities underneath.

We use veneers to correct a number of concerns, whether your teeth are crooked, uneven, chipped, gapped, protruding or discoloured. The number of veneers you have will depend on the level of perfection you are looking for. Usually we veneer the teeth from the centre outwards, and do them in multiples of two so that you always have symmetry.

In most cases just 2 pain-free appointments are needed to complete the veneering process. The appointments last on average 90 minutes. We endeavour to make the whole experience as pain-free and relaxed as possible. Modern techniques mean that, even if you do require local anaesthetic, this can be undertaken with the minimum amount of discomfort – no more than a scratch is all you will feel, and you’ll be able to return to work pretty much straight away.

Dental Crowns

Cosmetic dental crowns offer a strong and reinforcing outer 'cap' to protect damaged, cracked or broken teeth when a filling will not suffice. This will enable you to chew with comfort and smile with confidence. As they encompass the remaining 'core' of your natural tooth underneath, they reduce your risk of further breakages, and meanwhile rebuild the tooth's natural shape. A dental crown covers the entire tooth surface all the way to the gum line. You can always be assured that our approach is as preservative as possible.

Tooth Extraction & Oral Surgery

A tooth, which is very decayed, damaged or loose because of gum disease, may have to be ‘extracted’ or surgically removed.

Sometimes children's teeth are extracted for orthodontic reasons to help the new or remaining teeth grow regularly or without being crowded.
