Published . Filed under Cosmetic dentistry.

Whereas cosmetic dentistry was once seen as the domain of A-list celebrities and those with plenty of money to spare, more and more people from all walks of life are choosing to enhance their smiles with cosmetic dental procedures such as dental implants, teeth whitening and teeth straightening.

White fillings are an incredibly popular cosmetic dental treatment, probably because they are one of the most affordable and immediate ways of making over a damaged tooth and restoring its appearance.

One of the greatest pleasures in life is being able to throw back your head in laughter or smile and show your teeth in their full glory. Choosing white fillings means that they can be perfectly colour matched to your natural teeth, so you can smile and laugh with confidence and without a mouth full of amalgam.

But are white fillings better than amalgam fillings?

Study find that clear aligners such as Invisalign are more beneficial than braces

Published . Filed under Invisalign, Orthodontist.

Although there’s no doubt that clear aligners are an incredibly popular choice for orthodontic treatment these days, much of the evidence about their benefits has been anecdotal rather than clinical. A group of German researchers from Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz set out to change this by carrying out a study titled: Braces versus Invisalign: Gingival parameters and patients’ satisfaction during treatment: A cross-sectional study.

Why visiting an orthodontist may be a pleasant surprise

Published . Filed under Orthodontist.

If you’re like many adults, you may have a memory from your teens of your family dentist recommending that you have braces.

Filling the gap: Single implants vs. dental bridge

Published . Filed under Dental Implants.

If you have a single missing tooth, you may be trying to decide whether to have a dental bridge to fill the gap or to invest in a dental implant.

Historically, a dental bridge has been the most common treatment for the loss of a single tooth and is still popular and effective. However, a significant downside is that, in order to secure a dental bridge, we have to grind down the healthy natural teeth on either side of the gap to support it. Over time, these damaged healthy teeth can become unstable and vulnerable to decay, leading to further problems. Obviously, this isn’t desirable.
