If your natural tooth is damaged or decayed we offer a range of different treatments here at Highfield Dental & Facial Clinic.

When you have your appointment with our experienced dentists, they will take the time to carefully examine your mouth, so they can discuss your options and make recommendations based on their assessment of not just your clinical needs, but also your emotional and financial situation.

You can have complete confidence that all treatments carried out here at Highfield have your best interests at heart.

At Highfield Dental & Facial Clinic, we understand that for many patients it can be an incredibly distressing experience to lose a tooth, or even several teeth. We pride ourselves on building deep, long lasting relationships with our patients, and when we see one of them go through this upsetting scenario, it is wonderful to be able to help.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown may be a suitable option to repair your tooth and protect it for the future.

A crown, also known as a dental cap, is made specifically to fit your mouth and fits over the remaining part of a damaged tooth. As part of our minimally invasive approach, we will never look to remove a tooth unnecessarily, due to the effect on the other teeth and your mouth and jaw, so if the root is healthy, a crown can be a great solution.

Crowns can be made from plastic, metals such as silver or gold, or dental porcelain which gives the most natural appearance. They are held in place by a dental adhesive, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.

What does the treatment for dental crowns involve?

If you decide to go ahead with a dental crown, you will need to come into the practice for a series of appointments.

The appointments will include preparing the tooth by reducing its size so the new, bespoke crown will fit properly.

Your clinician will then take an impression of the shaped tooth and send this to a dental laboratory who will create a dental crown specifically for you. A temporary crown will be fitted while the permanent one is being made, so your smile will look and feel natural, even between appointments.

As we want to make sure you always feel relaxed and comfortable when you visit us, we may use a local anaesthetic during your treatment, and can offer safe sedation for any patients who are nervous or worried.

When your crown is made, you will return so your dentist can remove the temporary version and fit your permanent crown. Although your new crown cannot decay, it is important to remember that the remaining tooth underneath could. We would recommend you have regular hygiene therapy sessions to help you look after your new crown, so you can always have the confidence to smile and enjoy the food and drink you love.

At the end of the treatment, many patients tell us the look and feel is so natural they forget they have a crowned tooth at all.

Dental bridges

He gave me all the time I needed and talked me through, very carefully, what all the options were.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is one of the options we offer to replace one or more missing teeth.

The laboratory-made bridge is secured in the mouth by connecting it to the teeth either side of the gap, sometimes with dental crowns.

If you have experienced tooth loss, our experienced dentists will take the time to carefully examine your mouth and answer any questions you may have about the options available to you. Due to the way a bridge is secured, they will only be able to recommend this treatment if there are healthy teeth either side of the gap to support the new bridge.

What does the treatment for dental bridges involve?

Once you have had a chance to think over your options, if you decide to go ahead with a dental bridge, your dentist will help to arrange the appointments you will need.

These will include removing a little of the enamel from the supporting teeth, so the bridge will fit.

Your clinician will then take an impression of your mouth and gums, which is sent to a dental laboratory to make your bridge. Once it is ready you will return to get the bridge fitted using a strong dental cement. We find it helps patients feel reassured in the treatment process if you know you will see the same dentist every time, and your dentist will be with you at every step.

A dental bridge is a great long-lasting solution to a lost tooth or teeth, but one does rely on the supporting teeth remaining healthy and strong. We would recommend you attend regular hygiene therapy sessions once your bridge is fitted to help ensure that your new bridge is able to give you a confident smile for years to come.
