Composite or white fillings are very popular. The material they are made from is a combination of resin and tiny particles of glass. They are very strong and often used to fill small to medium sized cavities.
Crowns are used to help restore teeth that have large fillings, on broken teeth and teeth that have been root treated. There are different types of materials used to make crowns.
1. Porcelain Bonded Crowns - these are made from porcelain which is then fused to metal and are very hard wearing.
2. Gold Crowns - this material is mainly used when there is not enough space in the bite to allow for porcelain bonded crowns. Gold is a very robust material and crowns can be made quite thin to fit your bite.
3. Ceramic Crowns - This material is used to make crowns that have a superb and unrivaled appearance and specialist manufacturing techniques are used to create crowns made from this very strong product.
Your dentist will advise you on the type of crown that is most suitable for you.
Bridges are fixed restorations that are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are usually made from porcelain and bonded to the metal.
A bridge is generally placed to fill the gap of one or more missing teeth. The tooth/teeth on either side of the space are prepared and the bridge, including the missing tooth, is cemented over the top.
There are several types of bridges that can be made and, your dentist can advise you on the type most suitable for you.
1. Porcelain Bonded Bridges - porcelain is fused to a metal alloy which provides excellent strength while maintaining good aesthetics. These are ideal for replacing back teeth where the bite force is higher.
2. Adhesive Bridges - These bridges are also commonly known as Maryland Bridges. They require very little preparation and can be fitted to the adjacent teeth and may be suitable in certain situations. Your dentist will advise you if this type of bridge is suitable for you.
Tooth whitening is a very popular cosmetic treatment which generally gives excellent results in a short time. It is an effective and non-invasive way to have beautiful white teeth that will provide you with a smile you can be proud of. This treatment can be carried out in the comfort of your own home at a time that is most suitable and convenient for you.
Your dentist will advise you about this treatment item.
Most people who wear dentures are embarrassed and wish to keep it a secret. Many dentures can look artificial due to the quality of the materials used and the shade of the teeth.
At Stubbington Green Dental Practice we make high-quality dentures with natural looking teeth and gums. This is achieved by using highly experienced and skilled dental technicians. Together we aim to provide dentures that are durable, comfortable, with an excellent appearance that can help give your face a more youthful look and also help reduce wrinkles.
Mark Dellafera is very proud to be able to offer home visits to those patients that are unable to attend the practice. Routine examinations can be carried out and dentures can be made in the comfort of your own home or Nursing/Care home. However, if you require more complex treatment, you will be asked to attend the practice for this to be carried out.
The charge for a dental examination in Nursing/Care homes or your own home is £59.00.
Your dentist may recommend you visit the hygienist. Stubbington Green Dental Practice has 3 hygienists who work as part of our team. Their role is to provide you with help and advice on how to clean your teeth effectively which not only promotes good oral hygiene but also your general health too. Of course, they will also clean your teeth to remove the tartar build up that most people suffer from.
We are always happy to make an appointment for you to seek a second opinion if you feel the need to.
There may be occasions when we may need to send you to see a specialist to carry out any treatment not available at the practice.
We do stock certain items to help you maintain your oral health, from toothbrushes to floss and mouthwashes. Our receptionists will be very willing to help you make your choice.
In this practice, we take complaints very seriously indeed and try to ensure that all patients are pleased with their experience of our service. When patients complain, they are dealt with courteously and promptly so that the matter is resolved as quickly as possible. This procedure is based on these objectives.
Our aim is to react to complaints in the way in which we would want our complaint about a service to be handled. We learn from every mistake that we make and we respond to patients’ concerns in a caring and sensitive way.
If you are not satisfied with the treatment you have received please do not hesitate to contact the practice and the reception team will explain the procedure.
