‘Calm & Caring’ Tooth Restoration
Our Sandhurst dentists offer following restorative dental treatments in Sandhurst, Berkshire.
Tooth decay caused by bacteria can damage your teeth to the extent that you require a filling. As part of the process, we remove decayed material and clean the filling site, then fill the tooth with tooth-coloured material. Tightly sealing the filling to the tooth prevents bacteria from causing further decay.
Our Sandhurst dentists sometimes use Cerec© technology to replace amalgam (“silver”) fillings with white fillings that blend in with the natural colour of your teeth. Following this treatment it does not appear that you have a filling at all.
When a tooth has sustained considerable damage, we may recommend using a crown, which entirely covers the damaged tooth. We create most of our crowns using our advanced Cerec© process. The crown leaves you with a strong, natural looking tooth and prevents further damage.
If you have a missing tooth, the remaining teeth will gradually move into the empty space, resulting in a poor bite and a potentially unsightly smile. A dental bridge will prevent this by being cemented to the teeth, or implants, around the space, thereby preventing the movement of surrounding teeth and improving the look and feel.
