Ideal for… anyone with missing teeth, or teeth requiring extraction because of damage or decay.
Choose them because… they offer a lifelike and permanent solution that combines full tooth function with excellent aesthetics. Plus, they support the jaw, so you won’t experience the facial sagging missing teeth cause.
They work by… replacing your tooth root with a strong titanium plug, around which the jaw bone grows and onto which a prosthetic tooth can be fixed. Surgery is minimally invasive and results will last a lifetime.
Any drawbacks? Dental implants are an expensive option – but they should never need replacing if you follow a good oral hygiene routine.
Ideal for… creating a perfect set of front teeth with bespoke, eggshell-thin layers of porcelain
Choose them because… veneers are a one-treatment solution for host of dental issues, covering up chips, cracks and gaps, and hiding crooked or discoloured teeth.
They work by… creating the impression of a perfect set of teeth. Porcelain veneers are custom-made in a dental lab and then bonded in place by your dentist, who will fine-tune them by hand to create the finished result.
Any drawbacks? The treatment is not reversible: to fit veneers, the dentist has to remove a thin layer of enamel from your existing teeth – so it really pays to choose an experienced practice like Rhiwbina to carry out veneers with brilliant results.
Ideal for… healthy teeth that have yellowed through age, diet or lifestyle habits.
Choose them because… your teeth and gums are in good condition but their colour is letting them down. At Rhiwbina we offer prescription teeth whitening that you can carry out at home using bespoke whitening trays.
It works by… gently whitening teeth with a prescription-only bleaching gel. Your dentist will prescribe the right strength of gel for your needs, while your made-to-measure whitening trays accurately target your teeth, preventing the gel from touching your gums.
Any drawbacks? If you want your whitening results to last, you’ll need to try and avoid staining foods and drinks, and give up smoking.
