Which restorative dentistry options best suit the condition?
With the office Christmas party just around the corner, are you looking to give your smile a makeover? Do you want your teeth to look more attractive before you camp out under the mistletoe? We can help. Here at the Blossom Dental practice in York we offer a comprehensive range of restorative dentistry options for your teeth.
Obviously, the most appropriate treatment for you will be best decided during a one-to-one consultation with one of our highly skilled dental surgeons, but in order to give you an idea of the sort of treatments we can provide and how best your teeth can be repaired or restored, here is a guide to the most common cosmetic dental complaints.
Stained or discoloured teeth
Are your teeth yellowing or brownish? Perhaps just one tooth is heavily stained in an appealing way? There are a number of measures we can take to remove discolouration or hide staining. If the discolouration is very mild, you may simply need a scale and polish from our York-based hygienist. This will remove the deposits and make your teeth brighter.
Tooth whitening treatment may be required if the discolouration is more acute. This will involve bleaching gel being applied to your teeth via a custom made tray. We can restore your teeth to a gleaming white shade. Stains on single teeth may be covered by dental veneers, particularly if the tooth is damaged as well. We will assess every individual case in person in order to suggest the most suitable treatment for you.
Chipped or cracked teeth
Veneers and caps are the ideal solution for chipped or damaged teeth. Veneers are thin slivers of porcelain, which hide damage and strengthen your teeth to prevent further damage from occurring. Partial, or badly broken teeth may benefit from a cap, which will fit over the remains of your teeth, look entirely natural and give you a beautiful smile once again.
Fed up of having a mouthful of metal fillings? Why not exchange them for tooth coloured fillings? The only person who will know you have fillings following this procedure, is you!
It’s hard not to feel self-conscious about missing teeth. However, dental implants provide a perfect practical and aesthetic solution. Looking and feeling just like natural teeth, dental implants are placed in your jaw. Once healed, this combination of titanium roots and porcelain crowns will help you eat food easily, speak clearly and give you a more flattering smile.
Our teeth shift naturally over time as we use them to bite and chew. If your teeth have moved from an appealing position to a less appealing one, we can use discreet Invisalign braces to bring a wayward tooth or teeth back into position. Invisalign provides fantastic results for a huge range of alignment problems, so even if you’ve never had straight teeth, these almost invisible braces can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Please drop into our York practice or give us a call today to arrange your consultation. We may be able to fit you in this week if you give us a call today. Your perfect smile is easier and faster to achieve than you could possibly have
