The Corner House Dental Practice offers a wide range of treatments.
Teeth whitening is provided as a simple solution to improve your smile without picking up a drill. It is a safe and easy alternative to whiten your teeth than having veneers or crowns, and is a common choice amongst patients. We offer home whitening kits as the results are more controlled and stable compared to whitening in the dental chair. We have a brand new whitening system to offer ‘Colgate Tooth Whitening’ which is said to show an improvement within three days.
Dental Implants have been around for a while but are becoming more popular amongst patients. It is a fantastic option to replace a missing tooth/teeth without using any of the other teeth for support. A Crown, Bridge or Denture can then be placed on top of the Implant. It is important to maintain your teeth and Implants by visiting the hygienist regularly.
Fastbraces technology is an Orthodontic System that allows us to move your teeth into the correct position giving you a new smile. Technology is moving forward and so is dentistry. With Fastbraces you can expect results within 3 months to a year and nearly always does not involve taking out any teeth to create space.
This is a ‘Short Term Orthodontic System’ which is designed to move your front teeth into the correct position to give you a new smile. Results can be expected at 6 months but sometimes can be quicker or longer. It is aimed at adults who are not happy with their smile and involves using clear brackets and wires.
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap'. Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials and new materials are being introduced all the time. Here are some of the most popular options:
Porcelain bonded crowns: these crowns are made of a metal base with porcelain cover on top making it look like a tooth.
All-ceramic crowns: Emax is a modern material and is metal free giving excellent aesthetic look. This makes it suitable for use in all areas of the mouth.
Gold alloy crowns: gold is one of the oldest filling materials. Today it is used with other metals to increase its strength, which makes it a very hard-wearing restoration. These crowns are silver or gold in colour.
This is made by putting crowns on the teeth at either side of the space, and then joining these two crowns together by placing a false tooth in the space. This is all made in the laboratory and then cemented into place with special adhesives. The bridge cannot be removed for cleaning. Another option is an adhesive or "Maryland" bridge. This has wings that are bonded to the back of the supporting teeth with very little drilling involved. Bridges are only possible if you have enough strong teeth with good bone support. Your dentist will help you decide which is the best way of replacing missing teeth.
This is a plate with a number of false teeth on it. It may be all plastic or a mixture of metal and plastic. Both types may have clips (clasps), to help keep the denture in place in the mouth. Depending on where they are, some of these clips may show when you smile or open your mouth.
Plastic partial dentures are less expensive to make. But unless they are designed very carefully they can damage the teeth they fit against.
You can also get flexible plastic dentures. These dentures do not need clasps as they are held in place by flexing against your natural teeth.
Metal partial dentures are usually from an alloy of cobalt and chromium and they are much stronger. They are lighter to wear and can be supported by the remaining teeth. Although the base is metal, they have gum-coloured plastic and natural-looking teeth fixed to them. They are more expensive than the plastic ones.
