Endodontist & Specialist
Discoloured teeth are the bane of tea and coffee drinkers, red wine buffs and smokers. Don’t despair: a safe and effective remedy is available. We will be able to determine whether your teeth are suitable for bleaching before making a thin bleaching tray that fits comfortably over your teeth. This is worn with a small amount of tooth whitening material for 14-21 days or nights. While you wear the bleaching tray, it gently whitens your teeth. According to research, whitening is perfectly safe for teeth and gums. The effect on your teeth is the same as drinking a can of coke. If you carry on with the coffee, red wine and smoking, you can re-brighten your smile by wearing the tray for one or two nights every six to nine months.
Take a first step in feeling good and looking great with brighter, whiter teeth in less than an hour. Zoom! teeth whitening is safe, effective and very fast, and performed only by a dental professional
Porcelain Veneers are ideal for creating beautiful smiles in cases of small, oddly shaped, spaced or discoloured teeth. With this procedure you will be involved directly in your own design process inreshaping, widening and brightening your smile, thus ensuring total satisfaction. Thin skins of porcelain are then bonded to the teeth enabling normal social and eating activities to resume immediately. After treatment you will feel excited and more confident about your beautiful smile.
For many years, traditional crowns have been used to strengthen teeth that are heavily filled, weakened or darkened due to root canal therepy. Now thanks to new technology, Porcelain Crowns look better than your own teeth. This is because the distinctive dark metal line or “Blue Halo” of old style crowns has been eliminated. Porcelain Crowns are metal-free and so natural looking they can be mistaken for real teeth.
Many people have amalgam fillings. These are the silver coloured metal restorations that were the standard care for many years. They were effective in their time, but are not aesthetic, and tend to darken or blacken with time. Today there are tooth coloured materials which can replace your old metal fillings.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as a replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to integrate with the bone. It can then serve as the base for the new restoration. Implants can replace one or more teeth and may support a bridge or denture. The restored implant will look and feel like a natural tooth. Implant treatment is now a well-established technique with a success rate of more than 95% over a fifteen year period. The metal used, Titanium, is well proven for strength and safety in hip replacement. These are carried out in conjunction with the Arundel Implant Clinic.
