Some things you want to draw attention to and some things you don’t.
Southern Dental can help you keep your natural looking smile with tooth coloured fillings and crowns.
Because of natural tooth wear and decay, most people are likely to require a filling or even a crown at some point in their lives.
However, this doesn’t have to mean that the appearance of your smile has to be spoilt.
Southern Dental offers a range of tooth coloured fillings and crowns, so you can also have a choice of non-metal options that will be almost completely indistinguishable from your real teeth.
So, should your Southern Dental dentist ever recommend that you need a filling or crown, just ask about the range of ‘invisible’ treatment options we can offer.
Such cosmetic options are automatically offered to private patients as part of any treatment plan that your Southern Dental dentist recommends to you.
Because NHS dentistry can only provide the treatment that is necessary to protect and maintain the health of your mouth, teeth and gums, cosmetic treatments (such as tooth coloured fillings and crowns) are not normally available under NHS care. However, the good news is that even if you are an NHS patient at Southern Dental, you can still benefit from our full range of treatment options and keep your natural looking smile. All you’d need to do is pay for your treatment privately in addition to your normal NHS charges. Just ask your Southern Dental dentist for more information should you ever need treatment that may affect the appearance of your teeth.
Should you ever need a filling or crown; your Southern Dental dentist will discuss the benefits, suitability and costs of all the treatment options available, so you can choose the one that’s right for you.
If you already have amalgam (dark metal) fillings, please note that is usually recommended that you change fillings only when your dentist decides that an old filling needs replacing. However, if this is the case, then you can ask to have it replaced in a tooth-coloured material.
Of course, the best way to keep your smile looking natural is to reduce the risk of having to have treatment by taking good care of your teeth and gums. The best way to do this is to visit both your dentist and hygienist regularly.
If you haven’t been to a dentist for some time, then a Southern Dental dentist will be happy to see you. With both private and NHS practices across England, there’s a Southern Dental practice there for you offering a preventive approach to care in a relaxed and friendly environment.
