Cosmetic dentistry in BarnsleyCosmetic Dentistry

Dentistry has undergone many changes in recent years, with the advent of techniques to improve both the shape and colour of teeth, which may be crooked or stained. The use of porcelain, tooth coloured filling materials and simple bleaching techniques can greatly improve the overall look of your smile. Please feel free to mention any cosmetic concerns you have about your teeth to the dentist. Often solutions can be found that are affordable to most patients.

Dental Implants DiagramDental Implants

What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a titanium “root” device used to replace a missing tooth or group of teeth. They can support a crown or bridge and are excellent for retaining dentures.
Dental implant success is related to the quality and quantity of the bone available at the site, and the patient’s oral hygiene. Studies show that implants carry a success rate of around 95%

Good oral hygiene is essential around implants. Smokers, patients with diabetes, and patients taking certain medication are at a slightly increased risk of implant failure. Smokers are advised to quit the habit before proceeding with implant treatment.

Regular dental check ups are essential to maximise the life span of implant restorations.
