Before tooth implants, the only solution to tooth loss was to have a traditional denture fitted. This would be clipped into the mouth, rest on your gums, or be bonded to adjacent teeth. The traditional dentures would give you replacement teeth and improve the appearance of your smile, but they wouldn’t be without their own problems.
Is that crack in your tooth still bothering you when you look in the mirror? Has it got worse? I wonder how bad it has to get before you start considering having dental veneers fitted. Dental veneers consists of a sliver of porcelain bonded to your tooth by a dentist to effectively mend your tooth. It’ll make your tooth look great, protect your tooth from further damage and give you the confidence to smile again. Just a little word of warning, if you wait too long to restore the crack in your tooth, you risk your tooth becoming more damaged and looking even worse.
First impressions count and it’s commonly believed that those first impressions are made in just 8 seconds. So what are your teeth saying about you when you flash your smile at somebody new for the first time? Your teeth say more about you than you probably think.
Does it seem like everybody in London, who looks successful, has had teeth whitening treatment? This is probably because it’s a known fact that whiter teeth have the power to help you get promoted at work, find a new job more easily and even make you more desirable to the opposite sex.
Dental bridges bridge the gap in your teeth created by tooth loss. It is a device onto which a replacement tooth or teeth are fixed. In order to give you false teeth with which to eat your food, or help you speak more clearly. Dental Bridges can be anchored onto a gum free of natural teeth using a dental implant at either end. The implant is surgically attached to the jawbone and a crown is added to the top.
Receding gums happen for a number of reasons and if this recession is stopped early enough you won’t have more serious dental concerns in the future as a result. You might have noticed that your gums have shifted position on your teeth and that more of your teeth can be seen, without even experiencing any of the problems usually caused by gum recession. If that’s the case then it’s still worth booking a check up with our dentist here in Clapham.

Has your dentist advised you in the past to use mouthwash and maintain good dental hygiene, but you never really got round to it? Perhaps you bought a bottle after your appointment with good intentions, used it a couple of times, then forgot why it was important? If this sounds familiar, please be assured that you are not alone. A National Smile Month survey discovered that only 31% of adults in the UK use mouthwash regularly. So, why is it important?
