Fillings

Fillings are a type of dental restoration used to repair a tooth damaged by decay (caries). It is common for a tooth to have decay but not show any signs of discomfort or sensitivity.

With a filling, the decay is removed from the tooth and the cavity created is then prepared or shaped to accommodate a filling material. This preparation will ensure a proper seal and bonding of the material to the tooth.

Traditionally, there are three types of filling material (amalgam, composite and gold) and each has a different preparation requirements. Amalgam is a metallic grey, silver and mercury alloy which hardens or cures overtime after placement. Composite is a tooth coloured resin which is light cured after placement, and gold is a soft metal which is pressed into the cavity and forms a sealed restoration, as a result of this pressure placement, no curing is involved.

At Elite@Arches Dental we only offer amalgam free fillings to our private clients. This allows teeth to be filled and rebuilt, utilising more aesthetically acceptable materials such as composite resin.

Dental Implants

SPECIAL OFFER 10% off Implants

According to research nearly half of the U.K. population over 35 has lost at least one tooth due to trauma, decay or gum disease.

What is left is an unsightly gap which, at worst, could lead to bite problems, collapsing facial features and premature wrinkles. Implants are the closest thing that exists to natural tooth replacement.

A dental implant is a replacement for a missing tooth root. Implants can be used to improve the look of your teeth by closing unsightly gaps – one tooth or several teeth can be replaced in this way. In a number of cases the placement of implants has allowed patients to discard dentures which they had worn for many years. Implants can provide a permanent answer to tooth loss and will help restore a natural and confident smile.

Cosmetic Dentures

Losing your natural teeth can be both distressing and damaging to your health. It could affect your confidence in your smile as well as your ability to chew food or speak properly.

A denture replaces missing teeth and adjacent tissues. Unlike dental implants, a denture is removable. Made of resin and porcelain, complete dentures are used to replace all the teeth. When some healthy teeth remain, a partial denture can be used. A partial denture also keeps the remaining healthy teeth from shifting position in the mouth.

Dentures made by us at Elite@Arches Dental do more than replace the teeth, they are fit “neuromuscularly” meaning they are precision fit to provide the most optimum position for your jaw and bite, assuring comfort and are aesthetically beautiful. Full and partial dentures improve chewing ability and speech, they also support facial muscles as well as enhance appearance.
