At Hunts Cross Dental Centre not only do we have a team of friendly and skilled dentists providing routine dental care, but we enjoy a passion for transforming smiles. Our commitment through extra training can provide the perfect treatment for your perfect smile.
We would like to send a huge thank you to our loyal patients for your support, which is keeping the wheels turning at Hunts Cross Dental Centre so that we can continue to offer you outstanding care when the government restrictions are lifted. We hope to see you soon. The Hunts Cross Dental Centre has been established for many years, and we are proud of the practice and everyone who works together as part of our team. The practice has been in its current premises for almost 20 years. The practice has undergone many changes since it opened, but one thing has never changed our aim to provide high quality dentistry in a relaxed manner, in safe modern surroundings.
Most people have fillings in their mouths and often these are the old style silver amalgam fillings. While these are very good and can last a long time we are all now far more concerned with the appearance of our teeth, and don't want to see rows of black fillings when we smile and laugh. There is also a concern regarding the metal and mercury that these fillings contain being put in out teeth. The modern composite ( white) fillings have been developed over many years and studies have now shown that modern white fillings are just as hard and wear resistant as these old silver fillings.
Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dentist. What's more, a virtual 3D treatment plan (ClinCheck treatment plan) shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment.
Dental implants have been available for many years and have been commonplace in the USA and parts of Europe for decades now. With private dentistry increasing in this country there has been a rapid rise in their use here too. Dental implants are shaped like a screw and inserted permanently into the bone of your jaw to act as an anchor upon which new teeth are constructed. They are made from sterile titanium which is compatible with human bone. The implant itself does not resemble a tooth. Implants can be used to replace anything from a single tooth to all your teeth.
A dental bridge is one or more false teeth called a pontic, which is typically attached each end to a crown on a tooth adjacent to the space. Sometimes they are only fixed to the teeth one end of the space, and these are called straight cantilever bridges. A well designed and well cared for bridge will last many years and is a very good method of typically replacing one or two teeth. They can however be made to replace more teeth than this, if there are enough teeth in your mouth to attach them to.
Porcelain veneers have been available since the 1980s and have revolutionised cosmetic dentistry. However, it is really only in the last 5yrs or so that they have caught the public's imagination with the advent of "make-over" television programmes. Since we first placed our first porcelain veneers in the 1980s we have now provided over a thousand veneers, and these have changed the appearance of many hundreds of our clients. Well designed and fitted veneers look natural and are modern porcelains are very strong.
A trained cosmetic dentist has the specialist skills and knowledge to understand what makes a truly aesthetic smile. When you study a person's smile what is the first thing you notice, do you notice if everything looks perfect? Or do you notice imperfections that appear to become more noticeable the longer you look. This is what a trained cosmetic dentist is looking for, are there black triangles between the teeth? Do the teeth have a natural translucency to them? Do they sparkle? Can the natural internal effects be made in the new teeth to make them look natural?
