  • Fillings: teeth can be filled with a variety of materials which include gold, amalgam, mercury, porcelain and composite resin
  • Crowns: these are artificial teeth or ‘caps’ which can be fitted over broken or damaged teeth. These will maintain their structure and protect them from further damage
  • Bridge: this is a structure which contains an artificial tooth or ‘pontic’ which is anchored to a couple of crowns. These crowns fit over the natural teeth on either side of a gap which help to secure the false tooth in place and so ensure a natural looking appearance
  • Root canal treatment: this procedure is carried when the tissue or ‘pulp’ within a tooth becomes infected. This procedure can be performed by a general or specialist dentist
  • Dentures: these are basically a set of false teeth. If you have quite a few teeth missing, as a result of an accident or disease then dentures can help. They are removable false teeth which look and behave in much the same way as natural teeth
  • Dental cleaning: this can take the form of a ‘scale & polish’ or advice on brushing and flossing
  • Bonding: this is the name given to the procedure in which a type of resin is used as a ‘glue’ to stick a material, such as a veneer to a tooth. Often used to treat stained or damaged teeth
  • Oral (mouth) and Maxillofacial treatments: this is the technical term used to describe procedures for the mouth, face and jaw. Includes dental implants and treatment for temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ)
