Bring your teeth back to the highest levels of beauty,
Strength and function with dental restorations in Sutton.
Teeth can become damaged due to a number of reasons, including:
The option you choose to restore your damaged tooth will depend on many factors, including finance, speed of delivery, and the type of outcome you are seeking. There are often several options available to you and these include crowns, bridges, and dental fillings for teeth.
Restore your smile with dental fillings
New technology today has made old metal fillings a thing of the past. While there are different types of dental fillings, nowadays, we pretty much only do white fillings – there are only a handful of times when we use amalgam. White fillings generally last longer, have higher bond strength and are kinder to the tooth, as they require less tooth removal to put the dental restoration in place. White dental fillings have many advantages and can be used for a number of reasons:
Repair chips off teeth in a highly aesthetic way
Can be used for cosmetic reasons to change the shape, colour and size of teeth
Used to restore teeth after they have been damaged by decay

Restore your teeth to the highest levels of beauty, strength and function with dental crowns
A crown is laboratory made, bespoke fitting cap that sits over your tooth. It acts like a helmet to protect the tooth and is often placed to prevent a weak tooth from cracking.
Crowns are placed for a number of reasons:
To Protect Weak Teeth
Teeth initially become weak due to dental decay, which is often treated using a filling. Repeated episodes of decay will result in the tooth becoming weaker and eventually the tooth will fracture, leaving behind an even weaker tooth. A crown will then be essential to prevent the tooth from fracturing even further.
This is the most common reason why dental crowns are placed; however, the right way to do it is to crown the teeth that are at a high risk of fracturing before they actually fracture. This means we preserve tooth tissue in the long run and we even save teeth. Some fractures are catastrophic fractures, which results in the extraction of the tooth – wouldn’t it be better if we could avoid these instances? Our professionals at Sensational Smiles are experts in crowns and onlays, so we know what’s best for you.
A crown is also recommended after having root canal treatment. This is due to two main reasons. The first is that the tooth is often weak once we have root filled a tooth, and the crown protects the tooth from further fractures. The second is that the crown achieves a very good seal, protecting the tooth from reinfections.
To Improve the cosmetics of teeth
A crown is a beautifully hand-crafted piece of ceramic that mimics nature to the highest level. If you want to improve the cosmetics of your teeth, crowning them may be the solution.
If your teeth are worn, which makes you worry about aesthetics and function, crowning them may be a good solution for you. Worn teeth can be restored by using high quality crowns.
