Treatments

GENERAL DENTISTRY

General Dentistry Logo

We have a range of treatments to maintain your smile and keep your mouth healthy. This involves regular visits to your dentist and good care at home.

Through dental examinations and hygiene appointments, we can prevent issues such as dental decay and gum disease. Our restorative treatments can repair teeth with light damage, correct chips and cracks, and can replace any missing teeth.

PREVENTATIVE DENTAL CARE

Regular visits to the dentist and hygienist mean any issues can be spotted early and addressed before they progress. These problems can include:

  • Decay and cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Oral cancer
  • Dental erosion

CHILDREN’S DENTISTRY

We encourage you to introduce your child to the dentist as soon as their very first tooth appears (usually when they are around six months old). Early visits will help your child feel relaxed about attending dental appointments. Your dentist will offer helpful advice, including brushing and dietary advice.

A combination of regular visits to the dentist from a young age, developing a good dental care routine at home and encouraging a healthy diet will help keep your child’s teeth in great condition for life.

RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

FILLINGS

The most common type of restorative treatment are fillings. We use the latest white filling materials, which are  durable, and look and feel natural. They’re made from a special tooth coloured resin, applied directly to your tooth.

We also offer white fillings for a more aesthetic treatment. These composite fillings are made from a special tooth-coloured resin that can be applied directly to the tooth.

CROWNS

If unsightly teeth are spoiling your smile, crowns can offer a neat and natural cover up. Made from a variety of materials, including metal, porcelain, resin or ceramic, crowns fit over the whole tooth, concealing defects caused by chips, decay and discolouration. They can also be used to support a bridge, and can be fixed to an implant.

BRIDGES

Having a missing tooth can impact confidence, especially if the gap is visible when you smile. Bridges offer a secure solution to replace a missing tooth, using the teeth on either side of the gap to support a false tooth.

A bridge often consists of two crowns supporting a replacement tooth, hence the name. There are different types, however, and we can use bridges to replace more than one tooth. As they are custom-made, using impressions or scans of your teeth, bridges blend in with your natural teeth and can last many years.

ORAL HYGIENE

Regular teeth brushing and cleaning between teeth helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy. These also help to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Gum disease is a common condition. People are often unaware that they have it, as they may have few, if any, symptoms. If detected during its early stages, gum disease can be reversed, but if allowed to progress, it can only be managed.

Gum disease is essentially your body’s reaction to bacteria in plaque and tartar around the gum line. The immune system reacts and causes the gum tissue to become inflamed, which leads to your gums bleeding when you brush. In some people, their immune system can overreact, and start to break down the gum tissue and even the bone that supports the tooth.

We adopt a team approach to treating gum disease and we work together with our Dental Therapists who are especially skilled in providing the therapies and treatments which are most effective.

IMPLANTS

Dental implants offer one of the most effective, and long lasting ways to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental implant can provide a fixed alternative to removable dentures.

These artificial roots are placed in the jaw and fuse to the bone. They can be used to support single crowns for replacing individual teeth or a bridge for replacing multiple missing teeth.

WHY HAVE IMPLANTS?

  • Unlike ill-fitting dentures, which can have a tendency to move around uncomfortably in your mouth, implants stay firmly in place.
  • Implants help protect the jawbone by keeping it stimulated and they prevent existing teeth from moving around.
  • They eliminate the speaking and chewing problems that may be caused by missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures.
  • They can provide a significant boost to your confidence by restoring your smile.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?

  • We carry out a full assessment of your general health, how your teeth fit together, your oral health and the density of your jaw bone. If we discover you have insufficient bone volume, you may need a grafting procedure to allow for the successful placement of implants.
  • The titanium posts are placed in the bone under a local anaesthetic using a relatively simple surgical procedure.
  • Titanium is very well tolerated by the body, so over a few months the implants will bond with the bone – a process known as osseo-integration.
  • Once settled in and fully healed, we can fit replacement teeth to the now firmly positioned implants.

TOOTH WHITENING

  • Teeth can appear duller for a number of reasons, such as diet, ageing, certain medications, smoking and trauma.
  • Teeth whitening is a gentle process used to eliminate discolouration and lighten teeth, giving you a noticeably brighter and more youthful looking smile.

TOOTH STRAIGHTENING

  • Treatment involves using a variety of appliances to move teeth to a better position by applying gentle forces. At Camberley Dental Clinic, we offer fixed braces and more discreet options such as Invisalign.
  • As well as enhancing the appearance of teeth, there are a number of other benefits to receiving orthodontic treatment. It can improve eating and speaking ability, as well as encouraging better oral hygiene as teeth become easier to clean in their straighter position.
  • Braces can be used successfully to treat a range of issues from crooked, crowded, overly spaced and twisted teeth.

VENEERS

Working with our expert ceramist and our digital smile design technology, we carefully choose both the shape and shade of the veneers, ensuring that we keep you involved throughout so that they make your dream smile into a stunning reality.
