Here at Soar Valley Dental Practice, we pride ourselves on doing the ordinary, extraordinarily well. A small improvement in your smile such as transforming chipped, discoloured or poorly shaped teeth can make a dazzling difference in the way you feel, not only about your entire appearance, but also giving you the smile you have always desired.
Our clinicians will not only take the time to listen to your concerns, but by using the most modern techniques and materials available, together we can make your dream a reality.
Veneers are hand-crafted, thin pieces of porcelain that fit over the front surface of your tooth. Veneers are very versatile and can be used in a variety of different ways such as covering misaligned, chipped or broken teeth. Veneers are commonly made of porcelain but can also be made out of a ‘composite’ material. At your smile design appointment the dentist will discuss with you which material will be best to use.
Crowns are restorations that cover the whole of the tooth. Crowns can be used when the tooth has become too broken down for a normal restoration, or alternatively, for a cosmetic smile makeover. Our lab technicians not only individually craft the shape of the crown so that it looks like a natural tooth, but by also adding characteristics to it, they can make it indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.
There are many different materials used to make crowns, ranging from porcelain (that includes metal) to all-porcelain crowns that are used in a smile makeover.
A bridge can be used to fill in those unsightly gaps where a tooth has been lost possibly due to decay or an accident that an individual is self-conscious about. We use only the highest quality of dental materials to give you the most natural-looking bridge available. There are many different types of bridges – Maryland bridges (where feasible) are bridges that are cemented to the back of your teeth with a false tooth coming off it, to a conventional bridge. This means that less tooth is taken away from adjacent teeth to a conventional bridge, which involves crowning the teeth on either side of the gap and having a false tooth or crown suspended from it, thus filling the gap. The latter option is much stronger and is almost always recommended for posterior teeth where occlusion (biting) is a factor.Back to Treatments
