  Dental treatments
 

Goodleigh Dental Practice offer various treatments for NHS and private patients.

Fillings
Dental fillings area available in silver amalgam or white. White fillings are not usually available for NHS treatment.

Extractions
Bad teeth may be extracted, depending on the nature and severity of the problem. Your dentist will advise on the recommended solution.

Crowns
Dental crowns are restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken down teeth. A crown strengthens your existing damaged tooth so as to preserve its functionality. Dental crowns are also commonly known as caps because a crown sits over your existing tooth covering the entire outer surface.

Bridges
A dental bridge is essentially a false tooth (hollow crown) and is used to replace missing teeth. A bridge is attached (anchored) to the two other teeth around the space – “bridging” them together.

Dentures
Dentures have been used to replace missing teeth for many years. Alternative methods used to replace missing teeth include dental implants and fixed bridges.

Inlays
To repair damage to the tooth’s biting surface, rather than using a simple filling, or a crown, a dentist will often use an inlay, or an onlay. Inlays and onlays can be made from porcelain, gold, or composite or ceramic resin, although porcelain is now becoming the material of choice because of its strength and potential to match the natural color of your tooth.

Veneers
Dental veneers have long been used to create the ultimate smile makeover, with this treatment it is possible to transform crooked, stained, damaged and badly worn teeth into a brand new straight white smile as seen on many of the Hollywood greats.

Implants
The most common treatments for missing teeth are either a denture or a fixed bridge. However, dental implants are now becoming a more popular treatment to replace missing teeth as they provide a longer-term solution, slow down bone loss and preserve nearby healthy tooth tissue.

Sedation
utting you to sleep. You will feel very relaxed and probably won't be able to remember much about the procedure afterwards. There are two main types of sedation used in dentistry; inhalation and intravenous.

Root Canal
Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. If the pulp becomes infected, the infection may spread through the root canal system of the tooth. This may eventually lead to an abscess. If root canal treatment (RCT) is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out.

Endodontist
Aspecialist who performs root canal and treats diseases and infections of the pulp.

Tooth Whitening
Tooth whitening can be a highly effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change; but it will lighten the existing shade.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry involves dental procedures with the aim of improving the overall aesthetics of your smile. Often referred to as a " smile makeover", "Hollywood smile"  or "Wedding smile". A beautiful smile can have numerous knock on effects in an individuals self-confidence, self-esteem and personal relationships. The recent increase in media focus on the smile, with TV shows such as “extreme makeover” has created a public awareness about cosmetic dentistry and its accessibility.
