On paper, having a dental implant fitted can look very complex and painful. It involves placing a small titanium root into the jaw bone through the gums in order that the new tooth can be fitted. Yes, it used to be a very complex operation until laser surgery entered into the fray and now you can have an implant fitted in no time at all in Shepperton. One of the major problems before was the recovery from the fitting and this could be an extremely delicate and lengthy process that was just inviting infection. Now, a laser can pierce through the gum tissue with minuscule damage and form the hole in the bone beneath- in a matter of minutes and then the new root is fitted straight away. The advantages of implants are many: implants are resistant to infection, unlike the natural root of the tooth. They are very strong and once they are in, it’s for good. But they also enable you to have an incredible freedom to live your life as normal as ever you did, unlike denture wearers and of course, you are getting a brand new set of teeth thrown in as well. Implants are affordable so you should set yourself up with insurance or payment plan to cover your back. If you are considering having this done, you can get all of the finite details and advice from Mulberry Dental Care who serve the area.

The loss of a tooth for whatever reason can be a devastating time in Sunbury, but you can take heart from the fact that there are a good few ways to get around the problem, just ask Mulberry Dental Care who serve the town. One of the more traditional and trusted methods is to have a dental bridge fitted. Replacing a tooth is necessary in order to prevent gum disease erupting as well as protecting the shape of your face, your occlusion (bite), your speech and of course, your vanity. It will also help to prevent further movement and strain in the remaining teeth. The process will take about a month in all to complete: the adjacent teeth to the gap are first shaved to take the crowns that will be fitted and then a moulding taken, from which the bridge will be made. This will take a couple of weeks and when it returns from the lab it will be temporarily cemented in- this is to check for fit and bite, before it is cemented permanently (some longer bridges can be anchored using a mini-implant for extra strength). In the first months it will constantly be checked by your dentist to ensure the bridge is working well but one of the things you must learn to master from the off is cleaning around the bridge- your dentist will show you how and once you have got the hang of it, there’s no reason why you and your bridge should remain healthy for a good 15 years.

There is a good reason why dentists and their patients love working with porcelain to repair teeth in Surrey, it’s a beautiful and natural material that has a wonderful affinity to light, just as the enamel on the teeth does. So if you have any questions about porcelain, then ask Mulberry Dental Care, who serve the area all about it, but the answer will be the same and when it comes to restoration work in the mouth, porcelain is second to none. Porcelain veneers are one of the restorations on offer. If your teeth have aged before you have and rather letting the side down with their discolouration, chips, cracks and receding gums, then this is the treatment that will inject youth and beauty back into your smile again. Once you have made the choice, then your dentist will first have to prepare you for fitting. Your enamel will be removed from the surface of the teeth and then an imprint made in which to make the veneers from. Normally, this is a two week wait (unless you go with CEREC, which will take around and hour), during which time you will wear temporary veneers. Once back, these fragile little gems are cemented onto the teeth and the job is done. But prepare for a shock when you first see them- they are simply astounding and if you look after them, they can give you a good 20 years’ service.
