Information on Dental Treatments

2013 June 20

Your dentist should be able to offer you much more today than routine tooth cleanings, fillings and extractions.

With all the advances seen in dentistry over the years, there are now numerous dental treatments and procedures which can transform your teeth and address problems such as stain removal or reversing the look of old or yellow teeth, correcting gaps between teeth, straightening teeth and filling gaps or replacing missed teeth and damaged or broken teeth.

Some of the dental treatments our dentists in derby provide for improving your smile are:

Cosmetic bonding

This technique is often used for repairing minor chips in the teeth and/or correcting small gaps in between teeth. The cosmetic dentist applies an dental composite resin to the tooth surface which is used to achieve the required result in terms of the size, colour and shape of the tooth being treated.Cosmetic bonding is a popular treatment used to fill small gaps between your teeth and is an ideal option if you have a goofy or gappy smile.

Crowns and bridgework

Dental bridges are mainly used for filling an area missing one tooth. They help in improving the appearance of the affected area and restore the jaw bite. Crowns are generally used in restoring the functionality and appearance of the teeth after another procedure. For example, when a portion of the tooth is removed during a root canal, it is replaced with a crown to restore the tooth’s functionality.

Dental Implants

These are usually a titanium fake tooth that is anchored in the jawbone, making it a permanent replacement for the missing tooth. They are the most convenient and desired choice for replacing a missing tooth.

Dentistry has primarily involved prevention of tooth decay, but today, cosmetic dentists offer a variety of treatments designed to also help you achieve healthy teeth alongside a beautiful smile.

To find the best dentist in Derby for your dental treatment, ask for patient recommendations, professional training undertaken and how experienced your dentist is in his field of work. Its a good place to start before embarking on changing your smile and changing the way you look.
