Sometimes you just need a bit more help to maintain that fresh, clean smile.

Our hygienist will work with you to get rid of hard to reach or problem areas that may be causing a build up of plaque or tartar which can cause gum disease and bad breath.

You may think you are cleaning your teeth regularly but it's often the case that we can miss some areas of the mouth or just don't have the right tool or technique to get a really good clean.

Seeing a hygienist is essential to maintain a healthy mouth free of gum disease and ensure that any dental work carried out is kept in the best possible condition.

Our hygienist are able to offer the following advice and treatments

  • Teeth whitening
  • Superficial scaling
  • Deep sub-gingival cleaning known as root planing
  • Polishing away plaque and staining
  • Eliminating food trapping areas
  • Flossing advice and instruction
  • Toothbrush or mouthwash recommendations
  • Dietary advice
  • Learn new oral hygiene techniques, eg, TePe brushes, Superfloss

It is not necessary to see a dentist before you book a hygienist appointment. Our hygienist and therapist can offer advice on all aspects of dental hygiene as well as performing professional clean and polish, teeth whitening and white fillings.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

We strongly believe in trying to save the tooth if at all possible.

Some dentists are reluctant to peform root canal treatments opting for extractions as a simpler, quicker solution.

Root canal fillings can be a complex and time consuming procedures, meaning some dentists are reluctant to pursue such treatments opting for extractions as a simpler, quicker solution.

Root canals hold a special interest to us. We have the knowledge, equipment and experience required to perform root canal treatments and re-treatments. Additionally, we are more than happy to take referrals from both NHS and private dentists for RCT.

Do I need a root canal?

Your dentist is the only person who can accurately assess whether you need a root canal procedure, however the following symptoms may indicate the need for a root canal:

  • Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
  • Prolonged sensitivity/pain to heat or cold temperatures (after the hot or cold has been removed)
  • Discoloration (a darkening) of the tooth
  • Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
  • A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums

Why get your root canal work done by Enhance Dental Care

We strongly believe in trying to save the tooth if at all possible. We would only suggest an extraction if it was in your best interests and there was no other viable option.

At Enhance we use a combination of training, experience and technology to deliver the best possible solution for our patients:

  • We use the Schick digital x-rays to establish the condition and position of the canals and infection.
  • We numb the tooth using the Wand STA (single tooth anaesthetic), meaning you can relax.
  • Once the local anaesthetic has taken effect we remove all the bad stuff, like the tooth decay and infection.
  • We use state-of-the-art materials and technology to eliminate the causes of the problem to ensure long-term success.
  • Your tooth is then sealed and restored using either a composite filler or a cerec (ceramic reconstruction) It is bonded in place to strengthen and reinforce your tooth, giving you the confidence to eat what you want.

The tooth is always numbed beforehand, so you can relax, confident in the knowledge that the procedure will be comfortable.

Dental Crowns, CEREC Inlays and Onlays

Dental Crowns, Inlays and Onlays

These procedures can save a heavily damaged or decayed tooth.

Restorative dental care

Dental crowns, Inlays and onlays are used when a tooth is heavily damaged or decayed where there may not be sufficient healthy tooth remaining to support a filling.

We frequently use Emax, Inceram, Procera, Zirconia, Lava and Empress ceramics depending on your requirements and clinical situation. Alternatively, you can benefit from cerec (ceramic reconstruction) technology which allows us to design and manufacture your new tooth right here at our practice using CAD CAM technology and have it fitted in just one visit.

Inlays, Onlays and Crowns are used in both general and cosmetic dentistry

We usually advise the use of an onlay to restore a badly damaged tooth. Because it is bonded in place, an onlay will strengthen and reinforce your tooth to give you the confidence to eat what you want and smile again.

In cosmetic dentistry, we utilise ceramic crowns to cover misshapen or discoloured teeth, to hold a bridge in place or to cover a dental implant.

Tooth Filling

Tooth Filling

All fillings are white using either cerec ceramic or composite resin.

Fillings work well when there is plenty of sound enamel and dentine, but other options may be more suitable when the tooth has become badly broken down. In such cases, an onlay or dental crown is preferred.

We all know how much nicer white fillings look. However, many of us have had mercury-amalgam fillings given to us and were never given the option of any alternative. Luckily, with the 21st Century technology we have at our fingertips, it is possible to provide strong, long lasting and perfectly natural looking white fillings in either composite or ceramic. It depends on the size of the filling which option is best for you.

Dental Bridge

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge fills the gap of your missing tooth allowing you to smile with confidence.

Replace a missing tooth

A dental bridge is false tooth, which is fused between two crowns to fill-in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns hold the bridge in place and attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth. This is what is known as a fixed bridge, which can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth.

Benefits of a dental bridge

  • Eating, chewing and swallowing is a great deal easier with a fixed bridge over a partial denture.
  • Self-esteem and confidence is greater without the worry of missing teeth.
  • Fixed dental bridges do not need removal to be cleaned just brush your teeth and practice normal dental hygiene routines.
  • Hard-wearing ceramic bridges made on site in our practice using our CAD controled CEREC ceramic milling machine.

Dental bridges may be used as part of, or in addition to other restorative dental treatments including ; dental crowns, inlays/onlays and implants.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Implants offer a permanent solution to missing or damaged teeth.

Implants offer a permanent solution to missing or damaged teeth.

If you are missing your natural teeth you may find that there are other things you miss too. You may miss your natural smile or not being able to eat the food you desire. Some people experience muscle strains and discomfort as the remaining teeth shift. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root it is placed into the jawbone.

What are the options for implant tooth replacement?

Single Tooth Replacement

Immediately (at the same time an implant is placed) or after a period of healing, an abutment is attached to the implant. This is a device that ‘abuts’ or joins the implant to a tooth form called a crown, which replaces the tooth part you see in the mouth. It will hold a custom-made crown that the dental laboratory will fabricate and match to your existing teeth. The custom crown is cemented or screwed onto the abutment to permanently keep it in place. Once the crown is in place, it should be indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Fixed Multiple Tooth Replacement

As with single tooth replacement, temporary healing caps or abutments may be placed on multiple implants until the healing phase is complete. After healing, permanent abutments are attached to the implants. They can attach to custom-made crowns or bridgework that a dental laboratory will fabricate to match your existing teeth. In the final step, the custom bridge, which will replace multiple teeth, is cemented or screwed onto the abutments. The teeth have been placed without disturbing the healthy teeth next to them, and the bone loss has been halted.
