White Fillings Metal-free Crowns Veneers

White Fillings

If you require a filling in your tooth, a cosmetic option would be to choose a white filling material that matches the shade of your surrounding natural teeth. You can also have any existing metallic fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or ‘white’ fillings. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall. Here is how white fillings work:

  • This is a safe procedure that entails the removal of any decay from your tooth, and taking out the metal or amalgam fillings if you are having them replaced.
  • The new filling is made from a very hard tooth-coloured substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time.
  • The restoration is completed in one visit and your fillings will not be visible when you smile.
Life benefits
  • Natural-looking restoration.
  • Improved cosmetic appearance of filled teeth while still being able to bite and chew as usual.
  • Hard-wearing restorative solution.

Crowns

A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or contain a very large filling. Here is how it works:

  • An impression is taken of the tooth that needs restoring.
  • A crown is made in the dental laboratory to fit the tooth precisely and match the neighbouring teeth.
  • The tooth is then prepared and the crown fitted securely on top.

A crown could be a good solution for you if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more appealing smile. Additionally, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.

Life benefits
  • Strengthens remaining tooth structure.
  • Natural-looking restoration.
  • Functions like a real tooth, so you can bite and chew as usual.

Porcelain Veneers

Are your teeth stained, chipped, or not aligned on top of each other? Veneers are a good treatment option to consider because they look like natural teeth and don’t require a major procedure. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps when braces are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others. Here is how they work:

  • A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain (like a false finger nail, but more durable) that is bonded on top of your own tooth.
  • Based on your needs, the shape and size of the veneers can be adjusted to make your teeth overall look longer and or closer together.
  • You can have just one veneer fitted or a whole set, known as a smile makeover.
Life benefits
  • Simple and quick solution to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth.
  • Long-lasting smile enhancement.
  • Natural-looking restoration
