your teeth are not perfectly formed, well proportioned, evenly set
and free from damage, or if they are discoloured, it might be worth
discussing cosmetic dentistry with us. There are now a wide range of
restorative materials which enable your dentist to remodel misshapen
teeth, close unsightly gaps, resurface blemished teeth and provide
an alternative to metal fillings. Badly stained teeth can
often be improved by bleaching. Bonding ultra-thin porcelain veneers
onto the front surfaces of teeth will not only improve colour but
enhance the shape and size of teeth as well. A happy smile improves
confidence and contributes many other good things to our lives.
Ageing occurs when healing is inefficient or slower than the rate of
breakdown of body tissues. This is often exacerbated by poor dental
health care. Good holistic dentistry can help prevent premature
ageing and the uncomfortable facial symptoms which accompany it.
very few people realise that cancers of the mouth are one of the
most common. It is an easy form to treat if discovered at an early
stage, but in some cases fatal if left untreated. Regular checks can
confirm that all is well - this is especially important for smokers
and denture wearers.
Abscesses often cause a great deal of pain and if one reaches the
'chronic' phase it can erode the bone of the jaw. They usually
result when a tooth root becomes diseased. However, it is often
possible to save a tooth by removing the diseased matter and filling
the roots with clean material.
