Restorative Dentistry

Your Somersham dentist can give you your smile back

Restorative Dentistry

At Church Street Dental in Somersham, we always advocate a preventive approach, however when you have missing or damaged teeth, our restorative solutions can bring your smile back. Examples include white fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures and dental implants.

Composite (white) fillings


Composite or white fillings are natural-looking, but may not be as hard wearing as traditional amalgam fillings, which we also offer. Composite fillings are tooth coloured and are made to match your own teeth, although over time staining can happen.

Crowns

A crown is a restoration that is placed over an affected tooth to change its shape, size or strength. Crowns are typically used to cover a heavily filled, decayed or broken tooth, or to provide strength after a root canal treatment. Crowns can be made from metal-based materials or from porcelain, to look like your natural teeth.

See what else we offer:

Bridges


Bridges are natural-looking artificial teeth that are permanently fixed into place to replace a section of missing teeth. We offer both conventional bridges, which are attached to crowns on either side of the gap, and the ‘Maryland’ bridge, which is bonded with an adhesive to one or more adjacent teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an ideal solution for those suffering the loss of one or more teeth, providing a solid foundation for a variety of dental restorations. Dental implants allow you to chew properly, retain your healthy teeth and feel confident and attractive. A dental implant is a small, screw-like fixture which is placed in the jawbone, normally under local anesthetic, and acts as a replacement for a natural tooth root. Once healed, the artificial root acts as a base for fixing crowns, bridges or dentures. Well-maintained implants can be expected to last many years and often a whole lifetime.

Dentures

Dentures are fitted to replace lost or missing teeth so you can enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. A ‘complete’ or ‘full’ denture is one that replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, while a ‘partial’ denture fills in the gaps left by missing teeth. We offer dentures made of either acrylic (plastic) or cobalt chrome (metal). Cobalt chrome dentures have the same natural appearance as acrylic, but are stronger and lighter.

Night guards

Night guards are designed to stop you grinding your teeth while you sleep, a condition known as Bruxism. We offer custom-made night guards, fitted specifically to your mouth, made from either soft or hard-wearing plastic.

Full mouth rehabilitation

This process involves a complete approach to restoring your entire mouth to a healthy and attractive state, boosting your quality of life and confidence. We will assess the condition of your gums and teeth and use an appropriate combination of the above restorative treatments to reach your desired goal – a happy and healthy smile!

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Thank you for your understanding whilst the practice has been closed owing to measures to protect both staff and patients during the COVID-19 pandemic

As you may have heard, the Prime Minister has advised that dental practices can reopen from 8th June 2020.

While this is welcomed news, it comes with a range of requirements, not all of which are yet fully defined, to make sure we are able to treat patients in a way that ensures the health and safety of all concerned. This will include enhanced personal protective measures and operating at a reduced capacity, thus as a consequence we will be seeing fewer patients per day.

Please be assured that the safety of our staff and patients is of paramount importance to us. We have always been focused on infection control, and in addition to what we have always done, we are augmenting our protocols to ensure our response to COVID-19 is both comprehensive and meticulous.

Initially we will be prioritising emergency/urgent care for patients who have contacted us needing help while we have been closed and we will be in contact with them over the coming weeks.

We will be contacting patients individually to arrange appointments where appropriate at this phase of the pandemic. There will be no “walk-in” appointment requests. Patients will only be seen with prior arrangement over the telephone.

As soon as we move to providing more routine care, we will let you know.

We really appreciate you bearing with us at this very difficult time.

If you require any dental advice or information, or feel you have a dental emergency please call or email us and we can arrange a telephone consultation.
