Dental Fillings Exeter
MUCH MORE THAN “JUST” A FILLING
If you present with established decay, chipped teeth due to trauma or want to improve the look of your old restorations, fillings are a good and effective way to repair teeth that have been damaged.
White fillings can be a simple and affordable way to really lift your smile. Made from natural tooth colored resins our dentists will use several shades and opacities to match your new filling as close as possible to your natural teeth making them imperceptible to the common eye.
All our fillings have extended warranty for members of our dental plans.
Crowns and Onlays/Inlays Exeter
THE SAME FEEL AND FUNCTION AS A NORMAL TOOTH
Crowns and onlays are tooth-shaped ceramic tops, most commonly known as “caps”. These are constructed to re-establish the tooth’s original shape and bite [in case of severely broken/decayed or teeth largely filled] and to protect weakened teeth [for instance, root filled teeth]. Other reasons can include the coverage of misshapen or severely discolored teeth for aesthetic reasons.
Crowns can be made of several materials but nowadays, due to the high cosmetic demand for natural looking teeth, ceramic/porcelain crowns have become very popular.
WHEN MISSING TEETH ARE A PROBLEM, BRIDGES CAN OFTEN BE THE SOLUTION
Made from the same materials as crowns, bridges are mainly used to replace missing teeth. Bridges are limited to the presence of neighbouring teeth so that ceramic teeth can be attached to by means of resins or cements.
Gaps can lead to increased stresses on your remaining teeth and interfere with the way you bite, eat and smile. A bridge can be a valid treatment option to tackle these issues as well as giving an improved cosmetic appearance.
Root Canal Treatment (Endodontics) Exeter
REMARKABLE ALTERNATIVE TO TOOTH REMOVAL
Feeling very much like receiving an ordinary filling, root canals are treated and filled when the nerve and blood supply to the tooth have become damaged or infected by trauma or extensive decay.
Endondontic treatment consists of removing the nerve from the affected teeth. The treatment involves the removal of the root nerve using modern and painless techniques to thoroughly clean and disinfect your tooth following the best practice guidelines.
ALL OPTIONS DISCUSSED WITH YOU
We only extract teeth when we feel there is no other option, or when the prognosis is so poor that other forms of treatment are unlikely to be effective. Nonetheless, if a tooth is too badly damaged or the surrounding bone is not strong enough to ensure good dental health, the tooth may need to be extracted.
Other reasons for extractions may include deep fracture to a tooth following trauma, orthodontic reasons (braces), severe infections, or impacted or painful wisdom teeth.
IMPROVED DESIGNS FOR BETTER FUNCTION AND COMFORT
Dentures have been the traditional way to replace missing teeth for centuries. Modern dentures are prosthetic devices made from the latest technology in acrylic resins (plastic) or cobalt chrome bases.
At Inspired Dental Care we also offer a Scandinavian denture design option known as the “gold standard” in denture construction because of their improved function and aesthetics.
