What is a dental implant?
Dental implant surgery is the long-term solution for restoring missing teeth and has been used by qualified dentists and surgeons worldwide for the last three decades. A small but strong bio-compatible metal or ceramic post is inserted into the jaw bone under a local anaesthetic. Dental implant surgery is more than just a cosmetic solution for tooth restoration and has added benefits that can improve the quality of your life.
The vast range of food and drink available in a modern lifestyle means that our teeth can end up looking less than white. Teeth whitening enables you to have a brighter, whiter smile and you can decide on the level of brightness from Hollywood white to a more natural white.
Wellington Dental Practice uses the Boutique whitening system. Following an initial assessment to determine suitability impressions are taken of the teeth which is then sent to Boutique’s own laboratory who create custom-fit trays to fit you. The trays are worn at home using a whitening gel and you can decide on just how white you want your teeth to be. The gel can be used for up to a year and can be used as a top-up for an important event when needed.
Your dentist will supervise the process with a follow up appointment to assess the health of your mouth during whitening and all risks and benefits will be discussed with you before the start of treatment.
Invisalign Go and Inman Aligners are the two orthodontic treatment methods used to straighten mis-aligned teeth at dental practice in Wellington, Somerset. Teeth straightening at Wellington Dental Practice will help give you a more confident smile as well as making it easier to clean your teeth and maintain dental health.
Invisalign corrects teeth with a series of custom-made clear aligners which you wear every day and change at home every one to two weeks. The Inman Aligner is a great solution for crowded or protruding front teeth. It’s efficient and great value with most cases completing in 6-18 weeks.
The Inman Aligner uses Nickel titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other and guide teeth into their new position. An impression it taken so that a custom made aligner can be created and once fitted it is worn for 16-20 hours a day with regular dental checks every 2-3 weeks.
With all orthodontic treatments it is necessary to either use a retainer to prevent relapse either in the form of a bonded retainer or a moulded Essix retainer.
