Improving dental health and transforming smiles through restorative dentistry
Maybe you’re dissatisfied with your smile but suspect there’s little you can do to improve it. Or perhaps you’ve put off a visit to the dentist because of the scale of treatment you may need.
At Platinum Dental Care we’re convinced we can help you!
Our patients are frequently surprised and delighted with the results we can achieve by skilfully applying crowns, bridges and veneers to resolve even the most long-standing dental issues.
Crowns and bridges have long been a mainstay of traditional restorative dentistry. Alongside the popular cosmetic option of dental veneers, these treatments form a versatile range of options to help us bring excellent results to patients who may have difficult-to-treat dental issues.
At Platinum Dental Care in Canary Wharf, we use only bespoke crowns, bridges and veneers made from the highest quality materials. They function superbly and look extremely natural – we take great care to match the shade of your own teeth.
What exactly is…
…a dental crown?
A dental crown (sometimes called a ‘cap’) is a protective ceramic cover used to restore the appearance of a damaged or heavily filled tooth. Crowns don’t just look like natural teeth – they can also help to restore your bite and tooth function.
…a dental bridge?
Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth by literally ‘bridging’ the gap with a false tooth or teeth. We attach a bridge to a healthy tooth on either side of the gap. Our skilled dentists are experienced in taking impressions for beautiful, bespoke cosmetic bridges that restore the appearance and functionality of your teeth. Every measure is taken to ensure the best possible fit – and we use only the highest quality materials, attentively colour-matched to ensure a natural finish.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells made from the finest dental materials, such as high-strength porcelain. They are easily attached to the surface of an existing tooth to transform its appearance. They’re something like false fingernails for teeth – but much more long-lasting!
Veneers are an amazingly straightforward way to achieve a natural-looking, healthy smile, correcting the appearance of problems such as stains, crooked or uneven teeth.
More good news: veneers can be made from white filling material also known as composite. These require none or sometimes very minimmal tooth adjustment or preparation – they’re the least intrusive of cosmetic dentistry procedures.
