Here are just some of the treatments available in our dental practice.
Invisalign Cosmetic Braces
Invisalign offers an innovative brace system that helps aligning your teeth in a discrete way. Each aligner is custom manufactured to provide the best fit and help reposition your teeth gradually. With no metal wires or brackets the Invisalign braces are barely noticeable and you can easily remove them while you eat or clean your teeth. Every 1-2 weeks you start using a new aligner which will move your teeth in the desired way little by little until you are happy with your new smile.
Veneers and Smile Makeovers
A smile makeover is a combination of different dental procedures to ensure that you will proudly show your new smile wherever you go. It is designed to help with any imperfections like gaps, crowded teeth, protruding teeth, replace any missing teeth or change the shape of your teeth.
The first step is often a teeth-whitening treatment to achieve the desired colour before any restorative treatments. Porcelain veneers are often used in the process as they offer a strong, highly aesthetic restorative solution.
Dental Implants in Mortlake
A dental implant is a titanium screw placed into your jawbone that can hold a fake tooth. It is essentially a fake tooth root that is a long-term solution for holding a single or a set of false teeth. Dental implants are a well-established treatment and offer an alternative to bridges and crowns. Once an implant is placed you need to wait a few months before a fake tooth can be placed on top of it. They are easy to clean, and a replacement tooth is virtually undistinguishable from your own teeth.
Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns offer a way to restore significantly damaged, broken or entirely missing tooth. Made from today’s modern materials they strengthen damaged teeth and can be used to bridge a gap in your smile without the need for an implant. The procedure normally involves two to three visits. During the first visit your dentist will prepare the damaged tooth to receive the crown. Once the preparation is done your doctor will take an impression of your tooth and sends it to the highly skilled lab technicians who will manufacture the perfect replacement.
White fillings offer a more aesthetic alternative to silver amalgam fillings. They used to have a shorter expected lifetime but today we have modern materials available that prove to be close to as durable as amalgam. Once your dentist cleans the tooth cavity a white paste is used to replace the missing part and then polished to ensure a perfect bite. They can be used both for front and back teeth.
Root Canal Treatment in Mortlake
A root canal treatment can be used to save your own teeth that is decayed or infected. By removing the nerve and the palp from the root and replacing it with a medical filling it may be possible to preserve your natural tooth rather than replacing it. A local anaesthetic is used during the procedure, so it is a much less painful procedure than many people expect it.
