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.

What do you know about composite bonding?

Composite bonding is a quick and effective way to fix minor cosmetic issues. The composite resin is hardened using UV light as soon as it’s applied. There is no drilling or injections, and can be completed in just one appointment.

Dr Brad Hawkins describes the treatment as "a great, non-invasive way to make a huge change to your smile".

Meet Dr Grace Marks one of our dentists at Together Dental Clapham.

Dr Marks grew up in Chester and when she was 16 did work experience which was the start of her journey to becoming a dentist. She says, “I always had an interest in a medical based career and I ended up spending two weeks in a dental practice for work experience- I loved it! More than my original choice of becoming a Doctor. It still had the science, but it is also a very hands on art. I did art at GCSE and always liked practical tasks like sewing and making things. I grew up on a farm, so I am used to hands-on practical based work.”

Dr Marks studied Pharmacology at Newcastle, and then dentistry at UCLAN, after her foundational training year she went straight into general practice.

She feels that she has great support in Together Dental and gets great help from clinicians within her own practice, including Millie (who has a double special interest). Grace says, “We have great specialists with every expertise you can think of. As well as general dentistry, I am furthering my interest in facial aesthetics and botulinum toxin. Having anatomical knowledge of the face is crucial to natural rejuvenation treatments. We understand the proportions and anatomy of the face, so I would really recommend that if people have non-surgical injections in their face, that they are performed by an experienced doctor/dentist/nurse. I love what I do, and I honestly wouldn’t want to do anything else.”

“I like the way that you treat an entire family. You see a young couple through different stages of their lives; getting married, pregnancy and then with young children. And through all these different stages they have varying dental needs. I have some patients where you see three generations of the family coming through and this for me is really important that I build relationships with my patients.”
