Visiting the dentist regularly ensures your oral hygiene is being monitored so if changes do occur, they are remedied as soon as possible.
Oral Health Review
An oral health review may seem like a trivial task, but during your visit there is more than just having a look around. Our dentists inspect and review your gum health, the insides of your mouth, your jaw and bite patterns and more. Book your next check up online today.
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.
Fillings are used to repair a cavity in your tooth caused by decay. Your dentist will offer you the type of filling they consider clinically necessary.
The most common type of filling is dental amalgam, made from a mixture of different metals. Dental amalgam fillings are often used on your back teeth as they're hard-wearing.
If you need a filling for one of your front teeth, your dentist may suggest a tooth-coloured (white) filling.
