Restorative Dentistry at its Finest!

The teeth are made from strong stuff, but years of wear and tear and injuries can take their toll and most of us need restorative treatment at some point in our lives. Common types of restorative treatment include:
  • Crowns
  • Fillings
  • Dental bridges

Why would I need restorative dental treatment?

You may need restorative dental treatment if you have cavities, have injured or fractured your tooth, have had root canal treatment, have had a tooth knocked out or extracted or your tooth has been weakened by a large filling. The type of restoration you have usually depends on the extent of the damage to the tooth and the location of the tooth.

About dental bridges

A dental bridge is a type of restoration used to replace a missing tooth. There are various types of dental bridge, including:
  • Traditional fixed bridge
  •  Cantilever bridge
  • Maryland bridge (also known as a resin-bonded bridge)
A traditional fixed bridge is the most common type of bridge. It is made from a pontic (a false tooth), fused to two crowns. A cantilever bridge is used when there are healthy teeth on one side of the gap only and a Maryland bridge is often recommended when one of the front teeth is missing. Dental bridges can be made from many different materials, including gold, metal alloys, porcelain and metal fused to ceramic. Metal bridges tend to be stronger than ceramic bridges, but ceramic bridges are more aesthetically pleasing; often, the best solution is to go for a ceramic and metal bridge.

Benefits of a dental bridge

Dental bridges are an effective means of replacing a missing tooth. They restore the look of the smile, giving you confidence when you smile and enable you to eat, drink and speak without any problems. Dental bridges should last for several years provided that they are well looked-after. It is important to keep the bridge clean and your dentist will check your bridge every time you have a routine check-up. Contact the team at Clifton Dental Studio, right in the heart of Bristol, for more information.

Magnificent Replacements for Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can cause all kinds of problems and at Clifton Dental Studio, we have the perfect solutions. Our magnificent missing tooth treatments restore smiles, boost confidence, enable you to eat a healthy, balanced diet and enjoy better standards of oral health. Our tooth replacements include:

Dental bridges

Dental bridges are a popular solution for people who have a single missing tooth or a few gaps in their smile. Bridges are traditionally made from a false tooth fused to a crown on either side and they are an affordable and convenient treatment option. Treatment can be completed in two sessions and bridges are made from durable materials such as metals and ceramics. They last up to 15 years. Ceramic bridges are popular because they look incredibly natural.

Dental implants

Dental implants are the most versatile tooth replacement solution on the market at the moment and they are suitable for the vast majority of people with missing teeth, regardless of age and how many teeth are missing. The aim of the implant, which is a small prosthesis made from titanium, is to replace the root of the missing tooth. Once the implant is secure in the jaw bone, it is then connected to a restoration and this stage of treatment replaces the visible part of the tooth. Implants are compatible with bridges, dentures and single crowns and they last for many years.

Dentures

Modern dentures are a simple and affordable means of replacing a few missing teeth or a full arch of lost teeth. Dentures are sets of natural-looking prosthetic teeth fitted for the individual. They are designed to function like natural teeth and are easy to look after. If you are interested in tooth replacement treatment and would like to find out more about the options available at Clifton Dental Studio, don’t hesitate to call and book an appointment.

Perfect Porcelain Restorations

From time to time, everyone’s teeth need a little TLC and we have the perfect porcelain restorations to strengthen weakened, chipped, broken and damaged teeth.

Our restorative treatments

We offer a comprehensive range of restorative treatments to repair and restore beautiful smiles. We offer high quality materials such as porcelain to ensure the best oral health and aesthetic outcomes. Porcelain is strong and hard-wearing and it also looks beautifully natural. Our porcelain restorations include crowns and veneers. We can fit single veneers to patch up worn edges and misshapen teeth or entire sets of veneers.

Why would I need a crown?

Crowns are designed to protect a damaged or decayed tooth from further harm and increase the functionality of the tooth. Crowns are sometimes called caps because they are fixed over the top of the natural tooth structure. Once they are in place, you will find that the tooth feels stronger and that the smile looks more attractive. Porcelain crowns blend seamlessly with the tooth structure and they should last for several years. Our crowns are hand-crafted using a multi-layer technique, which creates an incredibly lifelike aesthetic. If you have a large cavity or a broken or infected tooth, we may recommend crown treatment.

About porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are often associated with glamorous smiles, but they also have restorative benefits and they may be an excellent choice if you have chipped, uneven or worn teeth. Veneers are custom-designed shells of porcelain placed on the tooth surface. They are thin and light and can have an amazing impact on your confidence as well as the way you look. If you’re interested in restorative treatment, why not give us a call and book a consultation today?

Rejuvenate Your Smile for a Happy Valentine's Day

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many of us will be investigating ways to look our best. If you’ve got a hot date lined up or you’re looking forward to spending quality time with someone special, why not treat yourself to smile rejuvenation treatment? This treatment is designed to restore, repair and revive the smile, leaving you looking and feeling amazing!

About smile rejuvenation treatment

Smile rejuvenation treatment is designed to give your teeth a new lease of life and usually involves a combination of restorative treatments. Rejuvenation, also known as reconstruction, is often recommended for people who require extensive restorative work as a result of tooth loss, an accident, dental decay or acid erosion. We often use a combination of bridges, dental implants, crowns, fillings and veneers to bring the smile back to life and create stunning, natural looking results. After treatment, your teeth will also be a lot stronger and more robust, which will improve their function.
