Repair Your Teeth

Improving your appearance, your smile and your confidence

There are several ways we can repair damaged teeth at our relaxed Dental Practice in Cheltenham. We offer traditional general dental treatments, such as fillings through to advanced restorations such as root canal fillings, extractions, dentures, bridges and wisdom teeth removal.

At Shipway Dental we can cosmetically repair teeth that have been damaged or lost through decay or chipped in accidents.

Sometimes teeth need to be repaired or old fillings replaced. The condition of our teeth plays an important part in our overall self-confidence and health. If your teeth are affecting your lifestyle and you would like to do something about it, come and talk to us.

All of the appropriate options will be discussed with you at your consultation so you can choose the best option for you.

Crowns

A Crown, or porcelain crown, is a cap, cover or restoration to replace the missing portion of a tooth.

There are many reasons for crowning teeth. These can be due to aesthetic considerations but most are due to a lack of remaining tooth structure.

Crowns are an ideal way to rebuild teeth which have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling.

The crown fits right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth.

Veneers

A Veneer is a thin layer of porcelain used to cover the front of a tooth. Our dentists will remove a thin layer of enamel from the front and side of the tooth and replace it with a layer of ceramic porcelain. This is a simple procedure, which can really improve the appearance of your smile.

Veneers can be used to change the shape and colour of your teeth and hide discolouration and close unsightly gaps with little or no work being needed on the tooth itself.

Fillings

Tooth coloured materials are now used routinely for filling teeth, in preference to the older and more commonly used silver metal filling material.

The use of these composite materials which we can reliably bond to the tooth means that we can provide a very hard wearing and highly attractive final result to improve the look of your smile and allow you to laugh with confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some common dental issues that require tooth repair include cavities, chipped or cracked teeth, broken or missing teeth, and tooth decay.
If you experience tooth sensitivity, pain when biting or chewing, visible chips or cracks, or discolouration, your tooth may need to be repaired. It’s always best to visit a dentist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
Some tooth repair options include fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, and veneers. The best option for you will depend on the extent of the damage and your individual needs.
Tooth repair procedures are typically performed under local anaesthesia, so you should not feel any pain during the procedure. You may experience some discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
The duration of tooth repair will depend on the type and extent of the damage. Simple procedures like fillings can be completed in one visit, while more complex procedures like implants may require multiple visits over several months.
To prevent the need for tooth repair, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene habits like brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings. Avoiding sugary and acidic foods and drinks can also help prevent tooth decay and damage.
