Our dentist in Brentwood can help if things go wrong with your smile
When something goes wrong with your smile it can have a devastating effect on your general well-being. Not only because it could lead to dental complications in the future, but because not being happy with your smile could leave you feeling incredibly insecure and reluctant to smile...ever! At Coptfold Dental we have a range of treatments that can refresh or repair your smile, leaving you feeling more than just satisfied with your smile when you leave our practice. Our dentist in Brentwood can help you with chipped and cracked teeth as well as missing ones. An incomplete smile or a jagged appearance can really impact the way someone feels when they look in the mirror, so if you find yourself in an accident or wishing that you didn’t have gaps in your smile, book a consultation appointment with one of our practitioners to find out which treatments would be most suitable to your situation.
Have you chipped a tooth in an accident?
If an accident occurs and an adult tooth gets chipped it can seem like the end of the world. Not a lot of people are aware that a jagged tooth can be repaired and made to look exactly as it did before, if not better. Instead, they suffer in silence, trying to master smiling with their mouth closed and putting up with the unnatural feel of a sharp, jagged tooth edge against their tongue. If you wish to disguise a chipped or cracked tooth you can speak to our dentist in Brentwood about veneers. Veneers are a treatment that hides any imperfections that you have, altering the shape of your tooth to appear even and flawless. They can either be used singularly or as an entire set, but either option will require your practitioner to carefully prepare your tooth beforehand. Attached to the surfaces of your original teeth, veneers are matched to the original colour of your teeth or can lighten the shade of your teeth slightly if a full set is used. They are made of porcelain too, so they look and feel exactly like your original teeth.
Losing teeth does not need to be traumatic
People lose teeth all the time. In sporting accidents, general accidents, from tooth decay and gum disease as well as other things. Our dentist in Brentwood understands how important it is to have a natural-looking smile that you are proud of, which is why we offer dental implant treatment. This treatment can be used to replace any amount of teeth, and unlike other tooth replacement treatments, your new teeth will be permanently fixed inside your mouth, attached to small titanium screws that will protrude slightly from your gums. These screws are inserted into your jawbone to replicate the roots of your teeth, and the posts that protrude provide a fixing for your appliance to be attached to. Crowns, bridges and dentures can all be attached to implants, and what appliance you require will depend on how many teeth that you have missing. Dental implants are made to behave, look and feel exactly like your original teeth too, so unless you tell people that you have undergone treatment there is a good chance that they will not even notice that you have false teeth.
