There are a range of issues that may lead you to get dental treatment, the most common are crooked teeth, misaligned teeth, discoloured teeth and missing teeth. Each of these issues can affect your smile and the comfort of eating and drinking, which can be corrected with treatment from us at Dental Excellence. Crooked teeth can ruin the confidence of having a good smile and even make eating and caring for your teeth more difficult. If your teeth aren't properly aligned, it can create gaps and hard to reach areas that harbour bacteria. This can lead to more serious issues such as gum disease if not cleaned.
Misaligned teeth can also present the same problem, by creating space between teeth that allows bacteria to grow easily. Depending on the severity of the misalignment, this could cause issues such as malocclusion and problems with the jaw. Misalignment can also prevent the teeth from properly fitting together, affecting your smile. There are a few options you have when it comes to correcting these issues, such as composite bonding, fixed braces, or Clear X Aligners which is the invisible braces option we offer.
Opting for braces or Clear X Aligners will mean slightly longer treatment times than the other options but it will ensure that your teeth can be straightened without altering any of your natural teeth. Fixed braces work by attaching metal brackets to each tooth and connecting them via a wire to move your teeth over time. Once the treatment is complete, each bracket is removed and the teeth will have moved to the intended position, with no trace of the braces. However, it is important to brush thoroughly, otherwise, it's possible that once the brackets are removed, they may leave a yellow ring on the tooth.
Clear X Aligners can also correct teeth by leaving no trace and even when they are being worn, it is extremely difficult for them to be noticed, hence why they're known as 'invisible'. For both looks and comfort reasons, Clear X Aligners are often more popular than fixed braces as they can also be removed by the wearer to eat and brush their teeth. The booster case which uses 4D technology can also help speed up progress and in some cases, produce results faster than other forms of braces.
If you're looking for a dental treatment to fix discoloured teeth, composite bonding and veneers are a great option as the material can be used to hide any imperfections and whiten your teeth. The composite veneers can also cover your whole tooth, meaning we are able to reshape your teeth and make them appear straighter if you wish. Composite veneers are also less commitment than porcelain veneers as we will need to permanently change your teeth to fit the latter. However, if you're confident that porcelain veneers are for you, you can enjoy a long-lasting smile that won't get stained, for up to 15 years.
Missing teeth can completely ruin a smile and pose issues to your oral health too, which is why you should seek to fix this issue as quickly as possible. By having dental implant treatment with us, we're able to replace your missing tooth with an artificial one, by fusing a screw to your jaw bone to secure the tooth in place. This will both repair your smile and make sure you can keep your gums healthy, as there will no longer be an exposed, vulnerable part of your gum.
