Bridging the Gap Towards a Sensational Summer

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

Gaps in the smile can take away our cheer, but you don’t need to put up with a gappy smile this summer. With our dazzling dental bridges, we can fill gaps and restore your smile ready for the sizzling celebrations.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a restorative treatment  used to replace a missing tooth. There are different types of bridge, but most commonly, a bridge is made from an artificial tooth with a new crown on either side. The bridge is fused to the neighbouring teeth and we recommend ceramics to provide a truly natural look.

Bridge treatment usually involves two sessions over two to three weeks. In the first session you will plan your treatment ready to be placed in the second session. Your bridge will be custom-made just for you and can be made from ceramics so your new tooth looks as natural as the rest of them!

How long will a dental bridge last?

As long as you look after your bridge, it should last for up to 15 years.

Bridge-tastic benefits

Even a single missing tooth can have a massive impact on the way your smile looks, not to mention your oral health, and this can lead to low self-esteem. Bridges are a simple, affordable way to replace missing teeth and you’ll have a restored smile in just two weeks.

Once a bridge is in place, it will act like a natural tooth and should last for more than a decade. Bridges are designed to look just like natural teeth and blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. A bridge will not only restore your smile, but your confidence too.

Weak Teeth Made Strong!

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Tooth enamel is the strongest substance in the body, but it’s not completely invincible and our teeth can be damaged and broken. If you have an injury, are involved in an accident or have a decayed tooth, we can provide treatment to repair, protect and strengthen your teeth. Our dental crowns are built for style and strength and they will help to reduce the risk of further damage in the future.

About dental crowns

Dental crowns are restorations commonly used when a tooth is broken, damaged through injury or weakened by decay. If the cavity is too large for a filling or the tooth is fractured, it is beneficial to crown it to protect it, make it stronger and decrease the risk of more damage in the future.

Crowning a tooth involves placing a crown over the top of the tooth. For this reason, crowns are sometimes known as caps. With a crown in place, you can enjoy better function, especially when you chew or bite down on food, and a reduced risk of infection caused by decay spreading through the tooth.

Crowns can be made from various different materials and we often recommend ceramic crowns, as they match the shade of the tooth for a seamless look.

The procedure

Treatment involves two sessions. During the first appointment, we will prepare your tooth to remove the decayed tissue and shape it in preparation for the crown. We will then use dental putty to create an impression of the tooth and this will be sent off and used as a template by our highly trained dental technicians. When the new crown is ready, we will place it and secure it using strong dental adhesive.

Crowns are hard-wearing and they should last for around 10 years, provided that they are cared for well.

Crown Yourself This Christmas with a Remarkable Restoration

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

If you’re looking forward to celebrating like a VIP this Christmas, why not treat your troublesome tooth to a brand new crown? With same-day CEREC treatment and hand-crafted porcelain crowns on offer, we can ensure you have a smile fit for royalty this festive season.

What are crowns and why would I need one?

Crowns are a type of restoration most commonly employed when a tooth is broken, fractured or decayed. A crown is also known as a cap, as it sits over the top of the tooth. Crowns can be made from various materials and porcelain crowns are very popular as they restore the teeth without taking away from the beautiful aesthetic of your smile.

Crowns can also be used with dental implants to replace a missing tooth and they are often fitted following root canal treatment, when a tooth is decayed and harmful bacteria have reached the living tissue of the tooth, known as the pulp.

The main purpose of the crown is to strengthen and restore the tooth, but in many cases fitting a new crown can also have amazing aesthetic benefits.

Crowns are not a permanent solution, but they should last for many years. When you come for your routine dental checks, your dentist will have a look at any crowns you have to see how you are getting on.

Restore Your Smile in Time for the Summer

At Liverpool Dental Spa, we offer a wide range of restorative solutions for all your dental woes. Whether you have broken, chipped or worn teeth, a decayed tooth or have lost teeth as a result of an accident, we can help to restore your smile in time for the summer.

About restorative dentistry

Restorative dentistry is the field of dentistry concerned with repairing damaged, decayed and broken teeth. The teeth are sturdy and strong, but they can be damaged through injury or decay. If you do damage a tooth, it’s always best to get it treated to prevent further harm in the future.

We use a range of restorative techniques and restorations to produce amazing results. These include veneers, composite bonding, white fillings, dental crowns, bridges and dental implants.

Which treatment will suit me best?

Usually the choice of treatment will be dictated by your dental needs. For example, if you have a missing tooth you will have different options to somebody who has a chipped tooth.

Treatment options for missing teeth include dental implants, dental bridges and dentures, while options for repairing damaged teeth include dental crowns, composite bonding, inlays and onlays and veneers. If you have a decayed tooth and there is a cavity (a hole) in the surface of the tooth, the best course of action is usually to place a filling in the cavity.

The benefits of restorative dentistry

Restorative dentistry not only strengthens and protects the teeth, it also makes the smile look more attractive. It can also help to reduce the risk of oral health problems.

If your teeth would benefit from our amazing restorative dental treatments, call now and book an appointment. We’ll have you beaming in time to enjoy a summer of fun!

Crowns and bridges

Crowns and bridges are popular treatments for broken and missing teeth respectively. Dental crowns are placed over the top of the tooth and they are most commonly used when a tooth is decayed or damaged as a result of injury. Crowns help to make the tooth stronger and they can also have a very positive impact on the tooth aesthetic. Bridges are an affordable, simple and effective solution for missing teeth. Treatment is usually complete in just two sessions and we can use ceramics, such as porcelain, to create a very natural look. The most popular type of bridge is made from a false tooth that is supported on either side by a new crown. Crowns and bridges should last for around 8-15 years if they are well cared for.


Cerec is an innovative form of technology, which cuts treatment time and enables patients to enjoy the benefits of restorative treatment instantly. This is a single session treatment, which uses advanced technology to enable us to produce bespoke inlays and onlays, crowns and veneers on-site in just one day.

Broken Teeth Treatment In The City Of Liverpool

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

Your teeth are extremely strong and hard-wearing, but they are not unbreakable. If you have a broken tooth, it’s advisable to see your dentist to prevent further damage and restore your smile. There are various options available for treating broken teeth, including veneers and dental implants, but one of our most effective treatments is composite bonding.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is a simple, quick and painless cosmetic dental procedure, which is extremely effective for patients who have chipped teeth. The bonding process involves using dental composite to strengthen and repair the teeth. Dental composite is matched to the colour of the tooth and it has both aesthetic and functional benefits.

Dental composite is shaped while in soft, putty form; your dentist will use their skill and experience to mould the composite to build up worn surfaces, repair chips and even close small gaps between the teeth. Once the composite is in place, it will then be hardened using a curing light; this is a very quick process and it is not painful at all.

What are the advantages of composite bonding?

Composite bonding is more affordable than dental implants and veneers and the procedure takes less than an hour, which means you can enjoy the benefits of treatment much quicker. The process is painless and there is usually no need for anaesthetic.

The changes brought about by cosmetic bonding are often minor, but they have a real impact on the overall aesthetic of the smile. If you have a chipped or broken tooth or your teeth are worn and you’re fed up of feeling self-conscious when you smile or meet new people, this treatment can help to rectify these issues and ensure you feel happy and confident in the future.
