When a tooth is lost, or cannot be saved, we understand that it can be a distressing time for patients. Our team of specialists can offer an excellent solution if you have lost one or several teeth, in the form of dental implants.
By carefully inserting a titanium post into the gum, your dentist will be able to create an imitation ‘root’. A custom-made tooth or teeth can then be securely attached, which will look, feel and work just like your natural teeth, leaving you free to eat, talk and smile with complete confidence.
With years of experience working at hospitals around the world, our team of clinicians are perfectly placed to support you following the loss of a tooth or teeth. Implants allow people to live life to the full by offering a secure, natural-looking solution, and they can even be used to secure dentures if patients are uncomfortable with their current fit.
We also have the ability to carry out more complex oral surgery so that everyone who wants implants can receive this treatment. Over time, patients who experience tooth loss also find that the jaw bone begins to shrink. We can offer specialist bone grafting, along with a treatment that can increase the rate of healing, meaning that even after bone loss you can become eligible for implants.
Dental crowns are covers or caps that fit over a damaged or discoloured tooth to protect and restore the original appearance and function. If a patient has a broken tooth, or one that is weakened or discoloured by decay or a large filling, a dental crown is an ideal solution to improve the tooth strength, shape and colour.
Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain or ceramic. Your dentist will take the time to discuss the most suitable type of crown for you, based on your requirements and circumstances.
When it comes to the treatment itself, your dentist will remove a thin layer of the outer surface of the tooth, the same thickness as the crown, leaving the strong inner core. The dentist will then take some impressions, which a dental technician will use to create a crown that will exactly fits your mouth and bite.
You will have a temporary crown fitted while your permanent one is made. When your new crown is ready (about 1 to 2 weeks later), you will go back to the dentist to have it fitted with a special cement or adhesive, which will seal the crown in place.
Initially, you may be aware of the crown as it will be a slightly different shape to the original tooth, but after a few days you should no longer notice it. If you have any problems at all, please just get in touch and we will check the crown as soon as possible for you.
Dental bridges are a popular option for those who have one or more missing teeth. At Chiswick Park Dental, we offer a range of dental treatments to help restore the health and appearance of your teeth, including dental bridges.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that is used to bridge the gap left by one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth (known as pontics) that are supported by adjacent teeth or dental implants. Dental bridges are typically made from porcelain, ceramic or a combination of both, and they can be custom-made to match the colour and shape of your existing teeth, providing a natural and seamless appearance.
These are the most common type of dental bridges and are supported by adjacent teeth that have been fitted with dental crowns. The artificial teeth are anchored to the crowns, which are cemented onto the adjacent teeth.
These bridges are similar to traditional bridges, but they are only anchored to one adjacent tooth instead of two. They are usually only used when there is only one tooth next to the gap.
Also known as resin-bonded bridges, these bridges are supported by a metal or porcelain framework that is bonded to the back of adjacent teeth. They are often used for front teeth and require minimal preparation of the adjacent teeth.
These bridges are anchored to dental implants, which are surgically placed in the jawbone. They are a good option for those who have several missing teeth in a row or who have significant bone loss.
At Chiswick Park Dental, our experienced dentists will assess your individual needs and recommend the most suitable type of dental bridge for you. We will explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have. The procedure usually involves two or more appointments, depending on the type of bridge you need.
During the first appointment, our dentists will prepare the adjacent teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. This allows space for the dental crowns to be fitted, which will support the artificial teeth. Impressions of your teeth will then be taken, and these will be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom-made bridge will be fabricated.
At the second appointment, your dental bridge will be fitted and adjusted to ensure a comfortable and natural fit. Our dentists will also provide you with aftercare instructions to help you care for your new dental bridge and maintain good oral hygiene.
At Chiswick Park Dental, we are committed to providing our patients with high-quality dental care in a comfortable and welcoming environment. If you are considering dental bridges, please contact us to book a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. We look forward to helping you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can help to transform the appearance of your teeth. At Chiswick Park Dental, we offer a range of dental treatments to help restore the health and beauty of your teeth, including dental veneers.
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed over the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They are made from porcelain or composite resin, and they can be used to address a range of cosmetic dental issues, including:
At Chiswick Park Dental, our experienced dentists will assess your individual needs and recommend the most suitable type of veneers for you. We offer both porcelain and composite veneers, and we will discuss the pros and cons of each type to help you make an informed decision.
The dental veneers procedure typically involves two or more appointments, depending on the type of veneers you choose. During the first appointment, our dentists will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth. This allows space for the veneers to be placed without making your teeth look bulky or unnatural.
Impressions of your teeth will then be taken, and these will be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom-made veneers will be fabricated. This process typically takes around 1-2 weeks, during which time you may be fitted with temporary veneers to protect your teeth and improve their appearance.
At the second appointment, your dental veneers will be fitted and adjusted to ensure a comfortable and natural fit. Our dentists will also provide you with aftercare instructions to help you care for your new veneers and maintain good oral hygiene.
At Chiswick Park Dental, we are committed to providing our patients with high-quality dental care in a comfortable and welcoming environment. If you are considering dental veneers, please contact us to book a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. We will discuss your individual needs and provide you with personalised advice on the most suitable treatment options for you. We look forward to helping you achieve a beautiful and confident smile.
