Tooth Replacement Options – No Gaps!

Tooth Replacement Options – No Gaps!

For those who have missing or damaged teeth, tooth replacement is probably something that you’ve considered many times. You’ll be more than aware of their importance to your overall dental health – if not your appearance and self-confidence! Your smile is often one of the first things people notice about you, so it’s important to put your best foot forward. Health-wise, your teeth are designed to work as a unit, to help you chew, speak, and smile. When any of them are missing or damaged, these tasks become much harder. It doesn’t matter where the missing or damaged tooth is – even the loss of a back tooth can affect your health, and cause your mouth to shift, your jaw to lose support, and your face to appear older. Thankfully, Robert Duhig Dental have a range of options available to help you get your pearly whites back in fine smiling form! Crowns If you have broken or weakened teeth, crowns can be used to strengthen and improve their appearance. There are two types of crown: Ceramic crowns, which are the most popular, and look the most natural. This is usually the way to go for damaged front teeth. Precious metal crowns, which are the strongest and ideal for people who grind their teeth. They are also the most expensive. Discuss which option will work best for you with your dentist. Whichever way you decide to go, your overall dental health will be the better for it! Veneers If you have teeth that make you self-conscious, it can be a harrowing experience. You may feel the need to only smile with your mouth closed. With veneers, your smile could be back to its sparkling best in no time! Veneers involve the bonding of a thin sliver of porcelain to your tooth. They can restore the structure of any tooth that has been damaged or lost, and reshape it to improve its appearance. They also protect the teeth from further damage. Implants For those with completely missing teeth, implants are probably the way to go. If your missing tooth is impacting your lifestyle, your confidence or appearance, or wreaking havoc on your health, Robert Duhig Dental can use a custom-made artificial tooth that is attached surgically to your jaw bone to fit the gap in your smile. It’s a permanent solution that is natural looking and fully functional. If you’re finding it hard to chew or bite, or your face has sunken due to missing teeth, discuss dental implants with your dentist.

New Year, New Smile From Robert Duhig Dentists!

New Year, New Smile From Robert Duhig Dentists!

It’s a whole new year, and it’s time to work on getting your smile into tip-top shape with Robert Duhig Dental, expert dentist in Sandgate! If there’s anything about your smile that has been niggling at you over the past year – a chipped tooth, discolouration, maybe even missing or damage teeth – a shiny new year is the perfect time to start on your shiny new smile. Not only will your teeth look a million bucks, you’ll feel a million bucks! Robert Duhig is the dentist for all your dental needs in Sandgate. Why is now the best time? The most obvious answer to this question is health insurance! Health insurance can be a tricky thing, so here’s a simple run down on how it works. Most health insurance policies have an annual limit or maximum, which is the most amount of money you can claim for certain services within a calendar year. This means that if you bought and claimed a dental procedure in December 2017, you will be able to buy and claim a completely new procedure in January 2018. It’s the best time to get your new year’s resolutions out of the way and work on making your smile beam. What procedures should you consider? Obviously, this depends on your individual health needs, but here at Robert Duhig, we have a range of procedures, based on the latest research and dental technologies, for health and cosmetic procedures. Zoom teeth whitening Some of the foods and drinks we love best, like coffee, wine, and sugary treats, have the unfortunate side effect of discolouring our teeth. So, if your teeth aren’t a lovely bright shade of white any longer, our in-chair Zoom teeth whitening treatment can help get you back to your bright and bubbly best in no time! Crowns Do you have chipped or otherwise damaged teeth? Crowns can be just the answer you’re looking for. Veneers Porcelain bonded to your tooth, a veneer can help repair its overall structure, leaving you with a happy, healthier looking smile. Dental implants If you’re missing any teeth, dental implants can help make your smile flawless again. They’re artificial but look amazingly authentic, and will help make you look years younger. Dental bridges If there are multiple gaps in your smile, discuss the possibility of a dental bridge with Robert Duhig Dental today. It may improve your confidence in your appearance, but also have other health benefits, such as improved chewing and digestion. Teeth straightening If you’ve got unseemly looking teeth or there’s something bothering you about your grin, having your teeth straightened. This can be done using braces or other less invasive means – technology in this area...

How Do You Correct An Overbite – And Should You Bother?

    Many people look to correct an overbite. They’re concerned about the aesthetic impact of an overbite, which causes teeth to look unevenly placed in the mouth. There are also concerns about headaches or the propensity of other teeth problems that could be caused because of the uncorrected overbite. It seems that a lot of worrying goes on about how, when or where to correct an overbite. There’s another question that could be asked, though. Why?   Why should you correct an overbite? Not all overbites require correction. For many of us, it’s simply a case of teeth not perfectly aligning. Hey, nobody’s perfect! It’s a very common dental condition that can either be treated or left alone depending on severity. For some overbite sufferers, though, it will be necessary to correct an overbite. If this is the case, it will be because the overbite is severe enough to cause pain and possible speech problems. Leaving a severe overbite unchecked and untreated will more likely than not lead to significant issues (and costs!) further down the line. Not taking time to correct an overbite could also lead to problems while eating, headaches and migraines or sleep issues. How do you correct an overbite? Correcting an overbite is a straight-forward procedure. As per many dental issues, it’s easier to confront this problem when the patient is a child. This is a reminder of the importance to arrange regular check-ups with a reliable family dentist. Examination of the overbite may determine that the issue is to do with over-crowding. Regardless of age, an appropriate treatment plan will be established in order to approach the overbite correction at a pace that best suits the individual. Depending on what is required, you may need to look at braces, retainers or perhaps dental surgery. Arranging an appointment to discuss your options The idea of correcting an overbite can be overwhelming – particularly if you have had this condition for your whole life. However, there is a treatment plan that can be crafted to best suit your needs as well as your concerns. Robert Duhig Dental is the GENTLE dentist. This is the place to come for measured, reasonable advice and treatment about how to correct an overbite, without the astronomical cost that often comes with it. Need advice about how or why to correct an overbite? Get in touch with Robert Duhig Dental to see how the team can help YOU get everything lined up nice and...
