Bridges and Crowns

A bridge is a fixed replacement for a missing tooth or teeth. It’s made by taking an impression of the surrounding teeth, which will eventually support the bridge. A bridge is usually created from precious metal and porcelain and will be fixed in your mouth (unlike dentures, which can be removed). 

A crown is a type of cap that completely covers a real tooth. It’s made from either metal, or porcelain and metal, and is fixed in your mouth. Crowns can be fitted where a tooth has broken, decayed or been damaged, or just to make a tooth look better.

To make a crown, the old tooth will need to be drilled down so it’s like a small peg , an impression is then taken and sent to the laboratory where the crown is made. Once the crown has been returned from the laboratory it is then cemented onto the tooth.


Dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic (plastic) or metal (cobalt chrome)They fit snugly over the gums to replace missing teeth and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps.  Gaps left by missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speech, and teeth either side of the gap can grow into the space at an angle. Sometimes, all the teeth need to be removed and replaced.You may therefore need either: complete dentures (a full set), which replace all your upper or lower teeth. Occasionally just one or a few teeth require replacing and a partial denture is made. Dentures can prevent the above problems and, if complete dentures are needed, can improve the appearance of your smile, fill out your face and give you confidence.   Keeping your mouth clean is just as important as ever when you wear dentures. You should brush your remaining teeth, gums and tongue every morning and evening with fluoride toothpaste to prevent tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems. It’s important to regularly remove plaque from your dentures, as unclean dentures can also lead to problems such as bad breath, gum disease, tooth decay and oral thrush. Clean your dentures as often as you would normal teeth (at least every morning and night).


Fillings are used to repair a hole in a tooth caused by decay. There are several different type of filling materials for more information please ask your dentist

Management of Gum Disease

Gum disease is also known as periodontal disease. The state of your teeth affects your overall health. Gum disease is linked to lots of health problems in other parts of the body. Brushing your teeth can prevent gum disease and improve your overall health too.  Signs of gum disease include:
If you’re concerned that you may have gum disease, visit your dentist. Did you know that gum disease isn’t just bad news for your teeth, it’s also linked to serious health problems in other parts of your body? Gum disease increases your risk of all kinds of other health complications, including stroke, diabetes and heart disease. Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that support the teeth. It’s mainly caused by bacteria from plaque build-up. In some patients who are susceptible to gum disease, the body over-reacts to the bacteria around the gums and causes too much inflammation. In others, the inflammation doesn’t clear up properly. The result of the intense gum inflammation is that it also affects the bloodstream and is believed slowly to damage blood vessels in the heart and brain over a long time period. The good news is that brushing your teeth properly and looking after your gums can prevent and treat gum disease, improve your overall health and help reduce your risk of health problems, such as heart disease. Follow a routine of brushing your teeth for a full two minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, plus cleaning between your teeth with floss or interdental brushes. Visit your dentist and dental hygienist regularly for cleaning and check-ups. It’s especially important to look after your teeth and gums if you’re pregnant.

Root canal Treatment

Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) tackles infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal system). This is usually carried out when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth has become infected as a result from either trauma or decay. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out. The root is cleaned and shaped to receive a filling material and sealed with a filling. Root canal treatment usually requires two or three visits to your dentist. It is important to look after your teeth when recovering from root canal treatment. You should also avoid biting on hard foods until all treatment is complete. Most people can help prevent the need for further root canal treatment by: maintaining good oral hygiene, being careful to avoid too much sugary food in your diet and quitting smoking, if you smoke.


Veneers are new facings for teeth which disguise a discoloured (rather than a damaged) tooth. To fit a veneer, the front of the tooth is drilled away a little. An impression is taken, and a thin layer of porcelain is fitted over the front of the tooth (similar to how a false fingernail is applied).
