Wake Up To White Filling Wonderland In Leeds

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

4756357_blogAre you sick of spotting silver fillings in photos or wondering about safer alternatives to mercury fillings? If so, we can offer white fillings to repair and strengthen your teeth with minimal aesthetic impact.

What are white fillings?

White fillings are a modern alternative to mercury amalgam fillings; they are used to fill cavities, small holes, in the teeth. White fillings are made from dental composite, which is designed to match the colour of the tooth. Composite is soft and malleable and it is hardened on exposure to light; this means it can be moulded to fit the cavity perfectly before it is set.

White fillings are becoming increasingly popular because they are much more aesthetically pleasing than silver fillings and they are also safer and better for the environment.

Can I get my mercury fillings replaced?

Yes! We will be happy to replace existing metal fillings with new white fillings, as well as fitting white fillings for the first time.

What are the benefits of a filling?

Fillings are restorations, which are designed to make a tooth stronger when there is a cavity. Cavities are holes, which weaken the structure of the teeth; they are caused by bacteria and once there is a hole in the tooth, there is a risk of infection spreading to other parts of the tooth. The filling strengthens the tooth, but it is also protects it from further infection.

How long do fillings last?

The design and technology behind dental materials is advancing all the time and white fillings are now extremely durable. If the tooth is well looked-after they should last for several years.

Stabilise Your Dentures And Enjoy The Benefits Here In Central Leeds

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

3177025_blogDentures are a hugely impressive solution for missing teeth, but they can cause some issues. With stabilised dentures, we can offer solutions to common denture problems and ensure you have peace of mind, as well as a great looking smile and strong, functional teeth. We stabilise dentures by anchoring them with dental implants; this provides much greater stability and support than the suction of the gums alone.

What are implant-retained dentures?

Dental implants are small titanium posts, which are secured into openings in the jaw bone to act as a tooth root. Once the implant has been placed, it undergoes a process called osseointegration, which results in it becoming part of the actual bone tissue. Once the implant has settled completely, it can then be attached to a new restoration. Implants are clever because they are compatible with different types of restoration, including dentures, crowns and dental bridges. With implant-retained dentures, the denture is connected to the implants.

What are the benefits of implant-retained dentures?

Implant-retained dentures are the answer to denture wearer’s prayers; they eliminate the risk of dentures slipping, they increase bite power so that you can eat what you like, they look great and above all, they make you feel comfortable and confident when you speak, eat and smile. There is absolutely no risk that a denture will come loose or slip and there is very little chance of sore spots developing, as the denture is unable to move out of place.

With implant-retained dentures, you can enjoy all the benefits of traditional dentures with amazing bonuses. There’s no need to worry about limiting your diet or steering clear of specific foods, there’s no risk of slipping and sliding and you can be sure that your denture will feel comfortable at all times.

If you would like to find out more about dentures, dental implants or implant-retained dentures, call us and arrange a consultation or simply pop in when you are next in town.

Soft Denture Delight in The Heart of Leeds

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

2797271_blogIf you have missing teeth, there are certain problems you may encounter. From decreased confidence in social situations and a lack of self-esteem related to the appearance of your smile, to difficulty with eating and unclear speech, missing teeth can be troublesome. Thankfully, there are many treatment options for patients of all ages with missing teeth and one of our tried and tested treatments is a denture.

Everything you need to know about denture

Soft dentures are prosthetic teeth, which are used to replace missing natural teeth. Whether you have lost a number of teeth in an accident or you have lost most of your natural teeth through ageing or oral health diseases, dentures can help. We offer partial and complete dentures to replace a small number of missing teeth or a full arch of lost teeth.

Dentures are bespoke, meaning that they are crafted individually for each patient. They are designed and manufactured based on the measurements and contours of the patient’s mouth to ensure that they fit perfectly. The fit of the denture is really important, not just for reasons associated with functionality, but also to prevent sore spots and irritation.

Dentures offer a range of benefits for patients and a properly fit, well-made denture should enable you to carry out all the functions you are able to complete with strong and healthy natural teeth. You can eat and enjoy a wide range of different foods, your speech will be clearer and above all, you can feel more confident when you smile. Modern dentures are very lifelike and they are designed to mimic a beautiful, natural looking smile.

If you have missing teeth and you’re ready to consider replacement options, call us today to find out more about denture treatment.

City Dental Leeds: Why Choose Natural Looking Dental Implants?

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

2797271_blogIf you have a missing tooth or a number of missing teeth, this can affect much more than the look of your smile. Missing teeth increase the risk of oral health problems, as well as denting your confidence and making it difficult for you to eat certain foods. Thankfully, there are many treatments out there, which can help to restore full function and give you a smile worth showing off. One of our most impressive treatments is dental implants.

Dental implants are small screw-like appliances, which are made from titanium. They are inserted into the jaw bone to act as a replacement for the root part of the missing tooth. Like a tooth root, the implant supports the visible crown section of the tooth, which is replaced by a dental crown, a denture or a dental bridge. As titanium is biocompatible, it is able to integrate into the bone, providing amazing levels of stability.

One of the best things about dental implants is the aesthetics; once the restoration has been attached, the smile will look amazingly natural and you won’t be able to tell that your new tooth or teeth are different to your natural teeth. This treatment is also a long-term solution for missing teeth and it has additional benefits, including enhanced oral function, better facial aesthetics and reduced bone loss.

If you have missing teeth, this can be distressing, but we can help! Our dental implants create beautiful smiles and will enable you to speak, eat and smile with confidence in the future.

Fight Father Time with the Power of Botox in LS1

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

347563_blogIf you’ve noticed that time is catching up with you and you’re drawn to lines and wrinkles every time you look in the mirror, you may be thinking about anti-ageing treatment. Botox is one of the most popular facial treatments and an ideal option for those who want to look younger without undergoing cosmetic surgery.

Botox is injected into the skin to make wrinkles and lines less visible and create a smoother and younger complexion. As we age, the skin loses its elasticity and this causes lines to develop. With Botox, the skin looks taut and bright without looking unnatural. Botox is commonly used to treat crow’s feet, laughter lines and wrinkles on the forehead.

The procedure

Botox treatment is very quick and treatment usually takes around 20 minutes. A fine needle is used to inject the Botox into the areas of the face you wish to treat and it’s really as simple as that. You decide which areas you want to treat and after treatment, there is no recovery time required. The results of treatment last up to 6 months and we can then schedule another session if you wish to continue with treatment.

Many people think they have to go under the knife to look younger, but there are some non-invasive treatments, which have the same benefits without the risks or the lengthy recovery time.

If you’re tired of wrinkles and you want to give your skin a rejuvenating boost, why not try Botox this spring?
