Different type of dentures

Immediate Denture

Immediate dentures are measured for size with the natural teeth intact, and they are placed the same day as your remaining teeth are extracted. With this type of  denture, you skip the try-in stages that accompany the fitting of other models. Because gums and bone tend to shrink after extraction, these type of dentures will eventually become loose.

However , an additional relining can be placed to make the teeth fit better. This means that the replacement time for immediate replacement is much shorter than the conventional models. as these type of dentures function as dressing or healing cover over the extraction sites while everything is healing and remodeling. while everything is healing , the wear of the upper denture teeth combined with lack of proper lip support can make you look older , hence the need for a new denture to provide increased lip support for creating a more youthful smile line.

Conventional Denture

Fitting conventional dentures typically require four to six surgery visits, as all of the teeth have already been removed and the tissues have healed. During these visits, you will be able to evaluate the fit and look of the new teeth. Your dentist will advise you on colour, tooth type , and lip position and support. Keep in mind that if the color is too while , the new teeth will look false and artificial.

Individualised Custom Dentures

Custom-made natural looking dentures have specially shaded teeth and gums and other individualised characteristics, such as  tooth coloured fillings that are slightly stained and discoloured , that duplicate the original teeth. Because of this, they are the most aesthetic type of  false teeth.

Dentures don’t last forever, as they fracture and chip more easily than natural teeth, you may want to have a spare set , particularly if you travel a lot. It’s worth the extra cost to have teeth when you need a repair. Also remember that if the teeth are made of acrylic, which most of them are, they may show wear within 3-6 years. and if you grind your teeth, you can expect to show denture tooth wear in half that time.

A small chip can be a major flaw when it comes to teeth. Even small imperfections draw the eye and can feel uncomfortable against your tongue. And left untreated, some cracks can widen, exposing the inner parts of your tooth to infection. One common treatment for damaged or chipped teeth is the application of porcelain veneers.

Cosmetic tooth veneers are thin ceramic shells applied to the surface of your teeth. They can be coloured and shaped in a variety of ways to match your other teeth and beautify your smile. Once applied, they cover chips and discoloration, replacing them with the appearance of a natural, perfect tooth.

In the past, the first step in applying veneers was to file down the tooth to make room for the new layer of porcelain. But now, with new advanced veneering technology available at Lane Ends Dental Practice , chipped teeth can be covered with ultra thin prepless veneers. These veneers are an exciting new option that allows us to fasten your veneers directly to your enamel without removing any of your natural tooth, making them a perfect choice for anyone concerned about damaging their tooth’s natural structure. They’re especially effective for those who want to enlarge small teeth. With

Porcelain veneers can be used to repair chipped teeth that are located in the smile zone. Porcelain laminate veneers consist of several thin layers of ceramic. Using a special adhesive, the veneers are bonded to the tooth to replace the original enamel. A very small amount of the original tooth enamel (generally less than a millimeter) in preparing for the veneer to create room for a comfortable fit.

Veneers may not be right for everyone. Chipped teeth which have been badly damaged by decay may not be able to hold a veneer, and may need other treatment. But for many people, veneers are a versatile and long-lasting treatment for almost any cosmetic dental problem.

If you are unsatisfied with your smile, or are looking for ways to repair damage to your teeth, call our office to schedule an exam. We are happy to offer more information about veneers and other treatments, so that you can make the choice that’s right for your smile.

cosmetic dentistry procedures

Are you always unhappy with your pictures? Do you avoid having your photos taken?  It could be true for several people who are not happy with their teeth, which one of the most important and noticeable facial features. The two most common reasons for a person to hide their smile are:

  1. They may not like the look of their teeth
  2. They may have undesirable gaps between some teeth.

Irrespective of the reason, our cosmetic dentist would have several different treatment options that could help improve the condition of your teeth. In fact, the earlier you consult a cosmetic dentist, the better. He or she can give you a detailed analysis of what is wrong and what treatments could be undertaken to correct the situation.

Some of the most common corrective cosmetic dentistry procedures to get a smile makeover include:

1- Porcelain Veneers or Crowns for Gaps in Teeth

A common problem with majority of the patients who are worried about their smile is ‘gaps’. At times, people are born with such gaps in their teeth – that is, the problem is genetic. A gap could sometimes indicate a requirement for orthodontia and at other times they occur as a result of teeth which have been lost or damaged.

In both kinds of situations, dental treatments can help minimise or remove the gap completely. In most cases, we would recommend porcelain crowns or porcelain veneers to fill up the space.

2- Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Some people are shy to smile because of big and unattractive spaces, which are visible in the mouth. These are usually due to some missing teeth. Cosmetic dentists may be able to resolve this problem with dental implants, which could greatly improve your smile. A bridge may also be used to fill up an awkward space.

3- Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most common and affordable cosmetic dentistry treatments. It is a fast, painless and inexpensive means of transforming your smile and making you look younger and healthier. Tooth discolouration can be caused by smoking, drinking coffee, eating some foods, or simply as a result of the natural aging process.

Bleaching, or whitening, teeth to a lighter, natural, shade can promote a more youthful look, and there are many teeth whitening products and treatments available. The most effective, long-lasting and safe methods of teeth whitening are performed by cosmetic dentists.

4- Gum Lifts

Also known as a gingivectomy, a gum lift is a cosmetic dentistry procedure where the gums are reshaped to result in a more aesthetically pleasing smile. In most cases, people will choose a gum lift if they have a ‘gummy’ smile, where the gums have not fully receded after the adult teeth erupt, or in cases where people’s lips allow a lot of gum to show when they smile.

Gum lifts are generally only needed on the front teeth – as these are more visible when smiling and speaking – and technological dentistry advancements have ensured that gum lift treatments are now far less invasive and painful than they have been in the past. Nowadays, cosmetic dentistry professionals use lasers to reshape the gums, resulting in minimal bleeding, and faster healing times.

treatment for sensitive teeth

Sensitive teeth can occur when tooth enamel is lost exposing the inner layer of the tooth called the dentine. Dentine can be exposed by gum recession, abrasion by vigorous brushing or acid erosion. Gum recession can be caused by vigorous brushing, or by poor brushing and not removing plaque deposits on teeth, which can lead to gum disease and gum recession.

When the gums recede, the sensitive dentine at the neck of the teeth can be exposed. Acid erosion can be from our everyday diet and softens the enamel of the teeth. This enamel is then susceptible to being worn away by brushing, which over time, can expose the dentine. Acidic foods and drinks include fruits, fruit juices, salad dressings, soft drinks and sports drinks, wine and alcohol.

Dentine is made up of tiny fluid filled canals which stimulate the nerves in the teeth. When the dentine comes in contact with triggers or stimuli, such as cold and hot foods and drinks, sweet foods, acidic foods and drinks, cold air and abrasion from brushing teeth; fluid within these canals moves rapidly, stimulating nerve endings and causing short, sharp pain.

Sensitive Teeth Treatment

  • Good oral home care including twice daily careful brushing with a soft bristled toothbrush and daily flossing
  • We recommend brushing with an electric toothbrush with a small, soft round head. An electric toothbrush uses the correct technique to prevent over brushing or scrubbing the teeth too hard which can wear the enamel
  • Regular dental visits to remove the tartar that builds up on your teeth and causes gum disease and recession
  • Avoid sugary and acidic foods and drinks between meals which can dissolve the enamel on your teeth, especially in between meals and before bed
  • Use a toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth eg. Sensodyne, Colgate Sensitive, Colgate Pro Relief. These toothpastes have active ingredients that work by depositing a barrier that blocks the exposed canals and preventing the flow of the fluid within the canals that would otherwise cause pain.

tooth whitening in preston

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry teeth whitening treatments are as popular as ever. This is because we are constantly facing the appearance of our teeth every day when we look in the mirror. Since we’re always exposed to our teeth, we’re prone to notice imperfections, stains, or yellow teeth.

Should you decide to whiten your teeth, there are two ways to go about it: doing it yourself by purchasing one of the many whitening products available in pharmacies or having it done in a cosmetic dental practice like Lane Ends Dental Practice.

At first glance, whitening your teeth on your own is very tempting: prices are fair, and treatments are quick and simple. There’s also a whole bunch of products available, and it’s easy to find something depending on your needs. However, the safety of such products is sometimes questionable. Some tooth whitening products are filled with abrasive elements that damage teeth enamel, which can lead to long term complications. Moreover, the results of a DIY tooth whitening treatments are less efficient and resilient than teeth whitening performed by a cosmetic dentist.

For this reason, you should consult an experienced dentist prior to whitening your teeth. Do not hesitate to get in touch with Lane Ends Dental Practice for amazing teeth whitening  or to get more information on teeth whitening options.We employs a team of highly-qualified cosmetic dental professionals and is always on top of the latest technology. With their teeth whitening treatments, you’ll soon be able to flash your best smile.
