Dental crowns can repair extensively decayed or damaged teeth, and where there is still enough tooth left to form a post for a crown. Dental crowns can be made of gold, silver, porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal. In conservative cases dental veneers may replace the need for a dental crown.
Dental bridges replace multiple missing teeth next to each other, that cannot be crowned. The bridge is either held in place by composite materials anchored to adjacent teeth, or can be supported by dental implants. Dental implants replace the natural tooth root to support single crowns, bridges, and even full dentures.
Dental Surgery & Sedation
Porcelain, composite or amalgam fillings repair teeth damaged by decay, wear or trauma, prevent toothache and preserve the tooth. Root canal treatment removes infection in preparation for capping with a crown. Extractions are a last resort, if a tooth can’t be saved.
Some patients are nervous about visiting the dentist. While we can provide sedation, not every patient needs this. There are various ways we can manage anxiety without sedation. At Cherry Trees Dental we always try to make your visit as pleasant as possible.
Crooked teeth? Would you like them straighter? It’s never too late to have straighter teeth, even as an adult. Today, patients want removable, invisible, fast solutions to their crooked teeth. Cherry Trees Dental offer Invisalign, an innovative Orthodontic solutions to help patients achieve the smile they always wanted.
Misaligned and crooked teeth can be straightened and corrected in months, at any age. Orthodontics is both a functional and cosmetic treatment for both children and adults, and you don’t have to wear unsightly ‘train-track’ braces for years. Read more in Teeth Straightening.
Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are custom-crafted wafer-thin shells of porcelain used to create the ultimate ‘Hollywood’ smile loved by celebrities. High-quality ceramic or porcelain veneers will improve the appearance of discoloured, irregularly shaped, or damaged teeth. Alternatively composite bonding is quicker and cheaper but not quite so long lasting as veneers. While traditional crowns have a greater impact on your natural teeth, both porcelain veneers and composite dental bonding are minimally invasive as they are applied over your own teeth, leaving them intact. They are one of the most popular, minimally-invasive cosmetic dentistry solutions. Read more in Porcelain Veneers.
Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment worldwide. No longer just for celebrities, teeth whitening is now widely available to anyone who wants a whiter, brigther smile.
Cherry Trees Dental offer a range of cosmetic teeth whitening options that can reverse the staining effect of some foods and drink reverse the staining effect of some foods and drink. Read more in Teeth Whitening.
Dentures & Gum Health
Dentures replace missing teeth that cannot be repaired or saved. Removable partial dentures are secured to adjacent teeth. If all the upper or lower teeth are missing a full denture is needed. Today, full or partial dentures can be permanently secured on dental implants.
To optimise gum health, and avoid problems resulting in tooth loss, we recommend regular visits to our dental hygienist for cleaning, scaling and plaque control. Periodontal gum surgery can also be performed to sculpt and enhance the appearance of the gums.
Dental Trauma & Emergencies
Typical dental emergencies include chipped, broken or fractured tooth, abscessed / infected tooth, lost crown or filling, and toothache. But by far the most common, urgent dental emergency is the loss of a tooth, that either falls out, is knocked out or broken in half due to a sporting injury or other accident. This requires URGENT attention and dental restoration.
Never handle a knocked out tooth by the root. Never brush or scrub it. Gently rinse it in water only. Try to put the tooth back in the socket and gently bite down on a handkerchief or towel. If you are unable to re-implant it, place the tooth in cold milk, if available, or wrap it in saline-soaked gauze, or place it in a container with saliva. Be sure to bring it with you when you come in to see us.
