Restorative Dentistry

Experts in Restorative Dentistry

It’s important that broken and damaged teeth are treated without delay.
If action is not taken at the earliest opportunity, oral health may be severely compromised and cause even further damage to the oral cavity, surrounding teeth and their supporting structures.

At 53 Wimpole Street, our team have many years of experience in diagnosing and providing Restorative Dentistry for our patients. Once a diagnosis has been made and treatment is unavoidable, we always aim to use minimally invasive techniques.

We also understand that it’s not always just the functional issues of damaged teeth our patients are concerned with. Our Dentists use Restorative techniques for aesthetic treatment of teeth to meet our clients’ needs and boost their confidence, giving them a reason to smile!

All of our Dentists at 53 Wimpole Street are highly experienced in the use of all filling materials, specifically composite (white) fillings. We also work with different local and national laboratories to make gold, porcelain-fused-to-metal and a full range of the all-ceramic crown systems.

What Restorative Dentistry treatments do we offer?

Inlays/Onlays: The most common form of Restorative Dentistry is inlays or more commonly known as Fillings. Inlays fill the tooth where decay has damaged the tooth and thus preventing further decay whilst restoring the tooth to back to function. Onlays are similar, but cover more of the tooth’s surface and are referred to as “partial crowns”.

Dental Implants: Dental implants are titanium screws that are placed into the jawbone, acting as a root where the natural tooth has failed. Dental Implants are used to support one or more false teeth and due to advanced technology can look exactly like your other natural teeth.

Periodontal Treatments: Periodontics refers to the diagnosis and treatment of the surrounding oral cavity and supporting bone, ligament and gum around the teeth. Our Dentists and Hygienists at 53 Wimpole Street are experts at diagnosing and treating Periodontal Disease (gum disease). We can advise and treat you in relation to your gum condition.

Orthodontics: Orthodontic Treatment is essentially the correction of crooked, protruding or crowded teeth as well improving problems with an over-bite and straightening teeth. Treatment is usually in the form of fixed braces, but includes removable braces, functional appliances (a pair of removable plastic braces, joined together and fitted to upper and lower teeth) and headgear. As modern dentistry has advanced, we also offer aligners and invisible or lingual braces which are fitted to the back of teeth, for those who would prefer a more discreet treatment.

Endodontics: Our Dentists perform a variety of procedures, the most common of which is Endodontic Therapy or “Root Canal Therapy”. Endodontics also incorporates the treatment of cracked teeth and dental trauma. At 53 Wimpole Street, we provide endodontics using modern techniques and a state of the art rotary system. We are proud to work with some of the best Endodontic Specialists in London.

Cosmetic Dental Treatments: Our Dentists are not only here to Restore your teeth to function but also understand that the appearance of your teeth is important. To that end, our dentists are also highly skilled in the application of veneers – composite or porcelain which are bonded to the teeth, creating a more desired shape and filling gaps in teeth. Cosmetic Dental Treatments also include stain removal and whitening.
