Here are some of the specialised treatments we offer here at Complete Smiles:
Reshaping your tooth
This includes filing your teeth or adding a certain bond to refill the gaps between your teeth.
Bridges and Implants
If one tooth is lost, then an implant can be an effective way to restore its function. If several teeth are missing, then it may be more cost effective to have a bridge instead.
A bridge is formed with one or more crowns joined together to create a single unit. This is fixed over two healthy teeth to cover the gap of the missing tooth. By creating a bridge, it helps ensure no missing teeth which in turn allows for one to eat properly without causing further dental complications.
Implants in recent time have grown in popularity and are now the go-to choice for many prosthodontists when looking at tooth function restoration. Implants are made of titanium bone posts and a false porcelain tooth.
Initially, the titanium post is fixed into your jawbone and once fused completely the false tooth is crowned on top of the tooth. The missing tooth from here on in is replaced for your lifetime!
If you are missing more than a few teeth, then dentures are the go-to solution.
Dentures are designed to look and feel real and comfortable. Some patients love dentures while some do not feel comfortable using them.
This solution is wonderful for people with a temporomandibular joint disorder. It reduces the pressure put on your joint thus relieving the pain.
These are made from ceramic material and are wafer-thin shells that bond to the front surfaces of the teeth. These veneers are used when needing to dramatically change the appearance of your teeth. A part of the enamel is removed, and a bond is applied on the tooth. Following on from this, a custom designed veneer is fixed onto the tooth. Functionality wise, veneers are typically used to cover gaps between teeth.
For more information regarding these treatments give us a call, 020 4541 1150 and we will be more than happy to assist you in any way.
If you have a missing tooth that needs replacement, then a regular general dental practice is not who you visit. Only a prosthodontist can help you replace this tooth.
We are proud at Complete Smiles to help you restore your missing tooth using a team of specialised dentists, using the best materials and state-of-the-art equipment.
In certain cases, a dental team is pivotal when it comes to recreating and restoring your Jaw and Tooth function.
A team usually consists of a dental surgeon, a prosthodontist, a dental technician, and an assistant. A dental laboratory with highly skilled technicians is fundamental for the work of a prosthodontist, as they recreate the damaged tooth using durable, high-tech material.
The tooth/teeth are prepared by the prosthodontist creating a dental impression that is then sent to the dental laboratory with details about the condition, age, colour, shape, size, location and other parameters. The dental technician will then use his/her expertise to produce the desired tooth depending on the provided details. The fabricated tooth is then sent back to the prosthodontist, who will then complete restoration on the patient.
Without a highly skilled lab, their work will come out incomplete, uncomfortable, messy and the mission towards a complete smile will be made difficult! At Complete Smiles, we only use a certified, award winning laboratory. To find out more information please contact us now.
