Cavities and decayed teeth, in the past, were typically treated with mercury fillings. At Wickham Dental Care, we use tooth-colored composite materials for all our fillings. This procedure is not only more aesthetically pleasing, but will strengthen the affected tooth and prevent further damage. These mercury-free fillings are safer and allow us to protect our patients from potential health risks associated with exposure to mercury.
Root Canal Therapy
Severe decay or tooth damage can affect the inner tooth (or pulp) which contains the canals. Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, is the process where the tooth canals are cleaned and sterilized. Wickham Dental Care offers endodontic treatment to quickly and gently remove the infected pulp and prevent any further damage.
Zirconia Crowns (porcelain)
When teeth have become weakened due to damage, decay, or injury, porcelain dental crowns help protect them. Crowns are “caps” that are placed over the entire tooth. Wickham Dental Care utilizes a state-of-the-art Zirconia system to provide custom-made crowns. These crowns provide a precise fit, are extremely durable, and will look and feel like your natural teeth.
Much like crowns, dental bridges are made of durable porcelain and are shaded to match the color of the surrounding teeth. The bridge is composed of artificial teeth that are supported by crowns placed on the adjacent teeth. This procedure will help restore your bite and provide a support structure that prevents other teeth from shifting.
Full and Partial Dentures (flexi or metal base)
These are many restorative options for replacing missing teeth. Depending on your jawbone density, you may not be eligible for implants or anchored dentures. Dentures help many patients achieve their goal of having a beautiful smile and they help improve their ability to chew and speak.
Interim Partials (single tooth)
Interim dentures are often used as a temporary replacement while you’re waiting for a dental bridge or while healing after a dental implant procedure or extractions. The partial is custom fitted to look and function like your natural teeth and will help you adjust during a transition period.
