Are You a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is a procedure like a smile makeover, and it can produce amazing results. Overall, full mouth reconstruction in Newcastle aims to ensure you receive a beautiful smile that enhances your facial features, but equally importantly we want to make sure you have teeth that function correctly, and that your dental health is the best possible. What Type of Treatments Are Used during Full Mouth Reconstruction? The type of treatments used during full mouth reconstruction varies tremendously.

Using Adult Invisible Braces to Straighten Teeth

There’s no denying that straighter teeth can look more attractive, and frequently orthodontic treatment is the most effective and conservative way to achieve that beautifully straight smile. Lots of people had orthodontic treatment in Newcastle when they were children, but what can you do if you didn’t have this opportunity or if you’ve seen your teeth drift out of position?

Why Choose Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges?

Traditionally, crowns and bridges were made with a metal alloy substructure covered up with tooth-coloured porcelains. Some crowns and bridges were made entirely from metal, for example, full gold crowns. Restorations using metals are still quite popular today, but nowadays, we are more likely to provide crowns and bridges that are entirely metal-free here at West Bowmanville Family Dental. These solutions are ideal if you would prefer a metal-free mouth and especially if you want the very best aesthetics. What are Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges Made From? Our metal-free crowns and bridges in Newcastle are made from lithium disilicate and zirconia oxide, and we can even fit metal-free dental implants made from zirconia. All-ceramic restorations look beautiful and are resistant to staining, and they are highly biocompatible, which is perfect for anyone concerned about metal allergies or sensitivities. It is even possible to create entire arches of teeth made from…

Using Dental Bonding to Refresh Your Smile

A chipped, broken or stained tooth can detract from an otherwise attractive smile. Dental bonding is a quick and non-invasive treatment, and it is quite affordable too. What is Dental Bonding? Dental bonding is a procedure to cosmetically improve the appearance of a tooth, using tooth-coloured composite resin material which is applied or bonded directly to the tooth surface before it is hardened, shaped and polished. It’s an excellent treatment for mending chips or cracks in teeth, and it can also be used to close or minimize gaps in between teeth. If you have a tooth that is too small, slightly rotated or not quite the right shape, dental bonding might be suitable for reshaping or recontouring the tooth. The composite resin material used in dental bonding is the same material used to mend small to medium-sized cavities in teeth. This material is extremely aesthetic, and West Bowmanville Family Dental…
