Crowns

We use a crown when you’ve broken a tooth. This might happen because of trauma, or weakening by decay or because of a very large filling. 

The crown fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth- like a cap, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. It will also be the same colour as your teeth, giving the restoration a more natural appearance so it fits in with the rest of your teeth.

We might recommend a crown as a good solution for discoloured fillings to improve the aesthetic look. If you have had a root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.

If a crown was fitted over 10 years ago, some patients may start to see a dark line between the crown and gum. There is nothing wrong with the crown when this happens, but some patients wish to replace the crown to give them more confidence in their smile.

If you would like to replace your old crowns, please book in to see one of our experienced team and we would be very happy to advise you.

Bridges

For some people, a bridge is a traditional, safe and reliable solution. Our team will advise on whether it is something that will help you. 

We recommend a bridge as a fixed solution to a missing tooth or teeth. Bridges are made of a precious metal base that gives them a solid structure and makes them extremely hard-wearing. 

We securely bond the bridge to your natural teeth and then place a crown in the gap. A bridge helps to strengthen the teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed in place.

Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing. This is a stronger solution to support multiple missing teeth.

Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care of your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and prevent bad breath. Our team of experts will advise on how best to ensure your overall dental health and hygiene.

New research out today shows that the pandemic is negatively contributing to people's teeth. We are keeping everyone safe in practices, and following government guidance to ensure your visit to the dentist is as safe as possible during the pandemic!

84% people are at increased risk of tooth decay because of Covid19

Don’t leave it too late to go to the dentist!

According to new research from the Oral Health Foundation and Colgate-Palmolive eight in 10 people is at increased risk of caries (tooth decay and tooth crumbling) since the pandemic.

55% of the UK adults admit that they have neglected their teeth during lockdown, leaving more than half of the UK population at risk of decay and other issues which could be easily treated.

One in 6 (15%) do not brush their teeth as much as they did prior to the pandemic. Additionally, almost one in 5 (19%) say they have not been brushing their teeth twice a day.

One in 5 people (20%) admits to eating unhealthier foods, while 1 in 10 (11%) has been drinking more alcohol. The research also reveals almost 1-in-5 (18%) have not visited a dentist for more than two years. And 1-in-3 (36%) have reported toothache during the pandemic, with 9% suffering for longer than two weeks.

Nigel Carter, CEO, Oral Health Foundation says: “A worrying number of patients have neglected their oral health during the pandemic. This could have potentially lasting consequences, not only for the health of their mouth but for their general wellbeing also. The public’s awareness of what causes dental caries and how to prevent it, remains poor. Yet, preventing oral diseases like caries is completely in their own hands. All it takes is the correct care.”

As dental professionals we are here to look after all elements of your teeth and urge you to now make an appointment for a check-up. Come in and see us, safely, to ensure that we stop any problems in their tracks before they become more serious.

We are embracing the 'au natural' way! Trend number four on our list, the 'natural trend'!

We are stepping away from whiter than white perfect designer smiles and into a more natural look which is all about ‘perfect imperfections. The ‘Hollywood Smile’ was the look many wanted, and the straighter and whiter the better. But it seems that perfection just got too perfect and we’re now celebrating our differences. It seems this has all changed, and 2021 is all about embracing the ‘au natural’ way or ‘improved smile’, with perhaps a few tweaks.

Our dentists can help to naturally align, bleach and make use of composite bonding to get a very natural, enhanced looking smile. Find out more www.together.dental/treatments/composite-bonding/
