Did you know we can restore your teeth in a single day?

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

If you need a new crown or you’re having trouble with a tooth you think may be broken, you may assume that it takes weeks to find a solution. In some cases, repairing a tooth can take a couple of weeks, but at Liverpool Dental Spa, we can offer same-day treatment. If you need results in a hurry, you’ve come to the right place!

Same-day tooth restoration at Liverpool Dental Spa

We understand that time is of the essence for our clients and we are delighted to offer same-day tooth restoration. We use an innovative form of technology known as Cerec to bring about incredible results in a single day. Cerec enables us to design, fabricate and fit new crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers in just one session.

Traditionally, when you need a new crown, for example, your dentist will create a putty mould which is sent away to the laboratory. A dental technician will craft the crown and then send it back to the dentist and they will then arrange an appointment to fit the new crown. With Cerec, we can take control of every stage of the process on-site, so there’s no need to send anything away or wait around for the new restoration.

Cerec uses images captured by a camera to create detailed impressions, which are used to form the template for your new restoration. These images are sent to the on-site milling machine, which takes control of the fabrication process. Within minutes, your restoration will be ready, and your dentist can place it immediately.

The benefits of Cerec

Cerec offers an array of benefits for dentists and patients, including:

  • Speedy treatment times
  • No mess and no putty impressions involved
  • No need for multiple appointments
  • Improved accuracy

If you’re keen to find out more about sensational Cerec, call us today and book an appointment!

Restore Your Smile in Time for the Summer

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

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!

Cerec Restoration For Patients In The City Of Liverpool

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

We offer Cerec technology for same-day restorative treatment. Now, you can enjoy all the benefits of crown, inlay and onlay treatment in a single visit!

What is Cerec?

Cerec is a form of technology, which allows us to offer same-day restorative treatment. Usually, it takes around two weeks to get a new crown, but with Cerec, we can design, process and fit a new crown all in the same session, saving you time and making treatment much more convenient.

Cerec uses state of the art software to convert images of the teeth into detailed 3D images, which are used to design your bespoke restoration. These designs are then sent to the milling site, where the restoration is processed. It takes a matter of minutes to create the new restoration and one it’s ready, it can then be fitted.

Cerec restorations

We use Cerec to create bespoke crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays.

Advantages of Cerec

The main advantage of Cerec is speed, but there are many other benefits. The treatment process is quicker, but it is also easier and much less messy, as there is no need for putty moulds or impressions. Many people dislike the process of creating a putty mould, especially those with a sensitive gag reflex, so Cerec is a great option in this case. The whole process can be completed in a single session, which means less time in the dental chair, fewer injections and greater convenience, as you do not have find time to schedule two separate appointments; you can also enjoy the benefits of your permanent restoration without having to have a temporary one first.

Cerec treatment also improves accuracy and gives dentists greater say in the design process.

Restorative Treatments For Patients In The City Of Liverpool

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Teeth easily become damaged and need to be restored with dental treatments to prevent oral infections, tooth decay and gum disease. There are many factors that contribute to teeth becoming damaged, including the effects of ageing.

Damaged teeth

Poor oral hygiene may lead to acidic bacterial build-up in saliva that erodes dental enamel, breaking down the tooth’s structure. Eating excessively sugary and acidic foods may have a similar effect.

Habits that weaken tooth makeup include incorrect teeth brushing technique, teeth grinding and smoking. Changing our habits may improve the condition of our teeth and gums.

Oral injuries from sport, accidents or assaults may also lead to damaged teeth that need treatment to prevent further oral trauma and illness. Wearing a mouth guard during sport may protect teeth from damage.

Restoring damaged teeth

At Liverpool Dental Spa in Liverpool we offer individuals choices in tooth restorations ranging from white fillings, inlays, onlays and crowns to dental bridges and implants.

Our porcelain crowns are particularly popular for restoring teeth following root canal treatment to remove infection, or to strengthen tooth structure. Teeth may chip, fracture or break causing further damage to gum tissue and bite function.

Having teeth restored with a dental crown, whether made of porcelain, gold or zirconium ensures that the existing tooth enamel is preserved and the inner tooth dentition protected from infection-causing bacteria. Damaged teeth, if left untreated, may lead to gum disease and tooth loss.

Access porcelain crown treatment

Get in touch with us to learn more about porcelain crowns and how they enhance the quality of our teeth. Within two appointments you may receive porcelain crowns made from the finest ceramics that mimic tooth shade and texture, making it hard to distinguish between existing teeth and those restored with a dental crown.


Innovative Treatment For Missing Teeth For Patients In Liverpool

Monday, March 4th, 2013

From the ironic revival of classic rock, to retro Polaroid Smartphone filters and bomber jackets, it seems that nostalgia has been a guiding influence on popular trends of late. One area, however, where nostalgia should be left at the door, is dentistry. For centuries, the only option for replacing missing teeth were dentures, dentures made either from wood or, if we go back far enough, animal bone. Thankfully, in the modern world, we don’t have to worry about splinters or animal rights to quite the same extent when it comes to tooth replacements. In fact, we don’t even have to use dentures! Let us introduce you to ‘the fixed bridge’!

What is a dental Bridge?

Much as a bridge spans a gap in land, so a dental bridge spans the gap in your teeth. The bridge then supports a fake tooth.

Why should I replace a tooth?

Appearance is one reason, but not replacing a tooth can also increase the risk of gum disease, alter the structure of your face and affect the way you speak and eat.

The advantages of a bridge

Well, they certainly avoid the problems with eating, speaking and continuing slippage which are attributed to dentures. Bridges look natural, can last (with care) for well over a decade and can combat the problems most commonly associated with a missing tooth.

Bridge variants

As with transport bridges, there are several types; the traditional fixed bridge is the most common type as it is the most versatile. It is anchored via crowns on the two surrounding, healthy teeth and will require the surrounding teeth to be shaved slightly. The Cantilever bridge operates like a fixed bridge, except it is only anchored to one tooth. This has less of an impact on healthy teeth, but also allows a bridge to be fitted if you only have healthy tooth nearby. Being attached only to one side, however, limits the bridge’s use to areas of the mouth which are under less stress. The Maryland Bridge uses metal bands, rather than crowns, and so has no negative impact on surrounding teeth. This does, however, limit its use mostly to the front teeth and other low stress areas. For more information on bridge options, please contact the team at Liverpool Dental Spa in the city of Liverpool.
