Gone are the days of unsightly silver (mercury) fillings.
With newer materials and even newer technologies we have the ability to place tooth coloured fillings which when placed properly can last as many years as silver fillings, whilst giving a natural look to any tooth that has been repaired. For more information, visit the repair page.
An implant is a titanium metal rod which is placed in to the jawbone. The purpose of the rod is to support one or multiple false teeth.
Implants are very reliable, with a low failure rate. Once an implant has been placed properly, it should last for a long time with the right care. For more information, visit the tooth replacement page.
Due to new technology like the Invisalign® braces, tooth straightening has become a far easier process. To find out more about the Invisalign® system we use here at the Earl's Palace Dental Centre, head to the tooth straightening page.
Bridges are fixed prosthetics used to replace a missing tooth (or several missing teeth) by joining artificial teeth together and anchoring them permanently with adjacent teeth or dental implants.

Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. In some cases this can lead to the tooth darkening, meaning that the nerve of the tooth is dying or has died.
Root canal treatment prevents infection from spreading in the mouth and causing an abcess or inflamation of the tissue.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain which are made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. They are used to change the colour, shape and position of your teeth. To find out more, head to the tooth repair page.
Gum disease is the swelling, soreness or infection of the tissues supporting the teeth. Gum disease is caused by plaque (a film of bacteria which forms on the surface of teeth every day). To prevent and treat gum disease, you need to remove plaque from your teeth on a regular basis.
If you are worried about gum disease, our Therapist can help you to remove plaque. Visit the tooth cleaning page to find out more
