Regular dental exams are a critical part of preventative healthcare. During your comprehensive assessment, your dentist will fully check the health of all your teeth and gums and complete a full range of x-rays. You will be able to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your teeth, and problems identified will be thoroughly explained by your dentist. All available treatment options will be discussed verbally, and patients are also given a written treatment plan at the end of their check-up.
Here at Dental Options we have used tooth-coloured fillings for years. The composite resin is safe, strong, and natural in appearance. Due to the ability to bond to the surface of the tooth, the restored tooth is stronger than a tooth restored with silver-mercury fillings.
Fissure sealants are plastic coatings that are painted on the grooves on the back teeth. The sealants form a protective layer that keeps food and bacteria from getting stuck in the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay.
A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth. Extractions are performed for a variety of reasons but most commonly to remove a tooth that has become unrestorable, especially when they are associated with toothache. In orthodontics, if teeth are crowded, sound teeth may be extracted to create space so the rest of the teeth can be straightened.
Dentures are one of the options available to patients to fill a space from a lost tooth. This is a removable appliance made from either acrylic or metal. We would always recommend a consultation with one of our experienced dentists to discuss all treatment options available to you.
Here at Dental Options we provide an on the day emergency appointment service.
Yes, we use the latest generation in composite material which is a tooth coloured filling. This can be adapted to the shape of the patients tooth. These new composite materials are extremely durable and, when used in the correct way, are just as efficient as the silver fillings.
You do not always need veneers to fix chipped and broken teeth
Amalgam or silver fillings are the metal coloured fillings that many people have. Amalgam was the traditional material used for fillings for many years.
Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths. Nowadays fillings are not only functional, but can be natural looking as well. Many people don’t want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look.
