All-ceramic crowns

Teeth that are too badly damaged to hold fillings can benefit from porcelain dental crowns, which strengthen your teeth and blend with your natural tooth colour. A crown is an artificial restoration which fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
Nowadays, there is a variety of different materials. In most cases, we use the modern technique of all-ceramic restoration, which offers a metal-free alternative, which can give the high strength combined with great aesthetics and is suitable for all areas in the mouth.

 
Cosmetic Dentist Consultation

Prior to your visit at our facility, we will assist you by answering any questions in regards to our practice, philosophy as well as the details regarding your first visit. Any relevant patient forms will be provided to you.

Upon your first visit to our clinic

You will be greeted by one of our staff. Our highly-trained clinicians will review your past dental history and then do a full examination which will include: head and neck examination, cancer screening and detection, full mouth digital radiography, and caries detection, as well as periodontal screening examination. Once this diagnostic evaluation has been completed, your visit may include cleaning and debridement of your teeth and gum tissue.

On your second visit

Any additional records needed, such as study casts of your teeth and mouth, or intraoral digital photographs of your clinical situation, will then be taken at that time.

Complex cases may require a third visit

In which you will be given a thorough explanation and answers to any remaining questions that you may have. A treatment plan for your case with different options, will be provided to you along with an estimate of the costs of treatment. We will answer any questions you may have once you have decided to pursue further treatment.
 
Dental Bonding
 
Dental Bridges

When a missing tooth leaves a gap in your smile, we use the finest in modern ceramic materials to craft a very real-looking replacement that can be anchored in place by crowns. This is all made in the laboratory and then cemented in place with a special adhesive.

Dental Implants

The process is based on a process of integration of titanium or zirconia to the surrounding bone. This allows the new replacement tooth or teeth to have a very strong and stable base, maintaining the surrounding bone. This is the reason why implants give you the comfort, functionality and beauty of healthy teeth.

In order to understand how implants work it is important to appreciate the way in which healing takes place. When a tooth is taken out it leaves a hole in the gum which fills up with a blood clot. Within two months the hole in the jaw is covered with gum, slowly over the next six months the bone fills the hole completely.

The healing of implants depends on this natural process.

Traditional dentistry, which relies on bridges, partial and complete dentures, simply cannot compare to the “good as new” quality that advanced implant technology can give you. Teeth are rarely lost today, because every effort is made to save them. There are a number of reasons why teeth may need to be taken out.
• Dental Disease
When very little of the tooth remains because of a lot of decay. For example root filled teeth with failed post crowns or broken teeth.
• Gum Disease
The supporting bone around the tooth is lost due to pocketing and infection, in some cases even leading to tooth mobility.
• Unsuccessful Root canal therapy
Teeth that have been root canal treated can be prone to persistent infection resulting in a poor prognosis and are often removed.
Implant therapy is the replacement of the root with an artificial root that is made from titanium or zirconia. The procedure can be used to replace one tooth, several teeth or all the teeth.

Immediate Implant Placement

In case where there is no active infection and the gum and bone is intact, it is sometimes possible to remove a tooth which is failing or which has been traumatized and to insert an implant at the same time and bring it to function with a temporary tooth. Should immediate replacement not be possible additional bone grafting and soft tissue gum corrective procedures may have to be employed.

 
Mini Implants
 
Restoration of Implants
 
Single Implant

A single tooth can be lost in the front of the mouth and restored in a number of ways:

• Moving teeth into the space
Orthodontic treatment can be viable for young individuals, but more complex in adults. It
depends on whether the adjacent teeth are of the right shape and in the right position.
• Removable Partial Denture
Main disadvantage that it is removable and may come away unexpectedly. It can cause further gum disease of tooth decay if not maintained correctly.
• Adhesive Bridges
These are secured by bonding to the adjacent teeth on either side and are effective at replacing a missing tooth, but might not last indefinitely especially when there is a strong bite.
• Conventional Bridge
A predictable procedure, which requires the cutting down of healthy teeth on either side of a gap in order to support the bridge. This is a major disadvantage because it involves destroying healthy tooth tissue.
• Implants
An implant replaces a missing tooth and is an independent restoration. It has the advantage that it stimulates bone to stay and get stronger. This is something that will not happen with any other option. Implants are usually a more cost-effective and satisfactory option.

 
Dental Sealant

This innovative treatment is an evidence-based preventive way that allows a parent to protect their child from the potential distress and discomfort of future dental treatment. Prevention is an important aspect of our work at 

ProDent Care 

and we believe it can never start too early. That’s why we offer this treatment aimed at reducing the amount of dental work needed in adult life.Fissure sealing is a technique where a resin is bonded into the fissures on the biting surface of the back teeth, thus reducing the amount of food able to get trapped there and so preventing decay. This is generally done at age 6-7 and again at age 11-12 when the first and second adult molars come into the mouth. Many adults today have fillings on their back teeth that could have been prevented if fissure sealants were around when they were children.

Dentures

Our modern dentures will look just like your real teeth. At our office, we can provide you with the right dentures to restore your smile and self-confidence.

This is a plate with a number of false teeth on it. It may be all acrylic or metal and acrylic. Both types may have clips (clasps) to help keep the denture in place in the mouth. Depending on where they are, some of these clips may show when you smile or open your mouth. We will guide you to choose the best type of denture, depending on the condition of the remaining teeth.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Why do we havewisdom teeth?

Adultscan have a maximum of 32 teeth. The wisdom teeth or third molars are the lastto come through, right at the back. They usually appear between the ages of 17and 25. Although sometimes they appear years later.

Nowadayspeople often have jaws that are too small for all 32 teeth-28 is often the mostwe have room for. So if all the other teeth are present and healthy, there maynot be enough space for the wisdom teeth to come through properly.

Wisdomteeth are extracted:

·         whenit’s clear that they will not be able to come through into a useful positionbecause there is not enough room, and they are also causing recurrent pain ordiscomfort

·         ifthey have only partly come through and are decayed or causing decay to thetooth infront of them- such teeth will often decay as it will be difficult toclean them as thoroughly as your other teeth

Do they always causeproblems?

No.If there is enough room they will usually come through into a useful positionan cause no more problems than any other tooth.

Oftenthere will be some slight discomfort as they come through, but this is onlytemporary and will disappear once the tooth is fully in position.

What is an impactedwisdom tooth?

Ifthere is not enough room, the wisdom tooth may try to come through, but willget stuck against the tooth in front of it. The wisdom tooth will normally beat an angle.

What problems shouldI be prepared for?

Ifpart of the wisdom tooth has appeared through the gum and part of it stillcovered, the gum may become sore and perhaps swollen. Food particles andbacteria can collect under the gum edge, and it will be difficult to clean thearea effectively. This is known

Root canals

Root canal therapy (RCT) is a technique used when the internal part of the tooth, the pulp, has been irreversibly damaged. The usual cause of this is bacterial invasion of the pulp due to decay or trauma. When this occurs the pulp which is the blood and nerve supply, becomes infected and the long-term health of the tooth is compromised. This often results in a dental abscess which can be very painful and may cause swelling in the mouth and face. At 

ProDent Care

, we use the most advanced techniques of root canal therapy to treat this often distressing condition.
Root canal therapy is basically the systematic cleaning and filling of the pulp space enabling the tooth to be saved and remain useful in the mouth. Once root canal therapy is completed the tooth is restored. Often this is with a tooth coloured composite resin although it may require a crown due to the weakness of the remaining tooth structure.
Teeth treated with root canal therapy can remain in the mouth as long as a normal tooth, but they should be regularly inspected as part of the routine dental check-up to ensure that there is no decay as this will often be undetected by the patient.

Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of the tooth. Sometime, a natural composite material is used instead of porcelain. It can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth.
We use the finest porcelain veneers available to restore crooked, damaged, or discolored teeth. A veneer can make a chipped tooth look intact. It covers the whole front part of the tooth with thicker surface replacing the fractured part. Veneers can be used to close small gaps, if orthodontic treatment is not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position to the rest, a veneer is sometimes fitted to bring it in line with the other teeth.

Developed in Sweden, 

[Treatment name removed]®

 treatments can temporarily reverse the aging process for our London patients. [Treatment name removed]® uses a natural, biodegradable material to combat the thinning of the natural collagen fibre layer that supports our skin. As we age, this layer begins to break down, allowing the skin to sag and wrinkle. [Treatment name removed]® is a thick, transparent gel derived from non-animal, stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found in the skin as a vital structural component. [Treatment name removed]® returns skin contour by adding volume to the tissue.

[Treatment name removed]® is injected into the problem area using a thin needle. Typically, a treatment lasts 10 to 30 minutes, and can often be administered without anesthesia. Results of [Treatment name removed]® treatments are immediate. Sometimes a follow-up injection in 2-4 weeks will be recommended, and then you can enjoy results that can last up to a year.
Many fillers similar to [Treatment name removed]® are made from animal sources and therefore require batteries of skin tests to determine that there will be no adverse reactions when used on human subjects. Because [Treatment name removed]® is a filler made from non-animal material, no such tests are required. [Treatment name removed]® is natural and safe, and our patients will welcome the confidence that a younger, healthier look can inspire.
