State Of The Art Software And The Art Of CEREC Near Gillingham

At Kent Smile Studio, we’re proud to use the latest technology and state of the art software to produce beautiful smiles and healthy, strong teeth. With Cerec, we’re able to offer clients same-day crowns, inlays and onlays and veneers, saving you time and enabling you to enjoy the perks of restorative treatment without delay.

Cerec technology takes care of the entire process of designing, manufacturing and fitting new restorations and allows us to do everything on-site, rather than sending impressions away to a dental lab. Cerec uses state of the art software to create accurate designs for the new restoration, which are then sent to the milling machine, where the restoration is fabricated.

The benefits of Cerec

The main benefit of Cerec is the speed of treatment. With traditional methods, treatment usually takes around 2 weeks, as moulds are sent away to the dental lab, the restoration is made by dental technicians and then returned to the surgery. With Cerec, everything is controlled by computer software and the technology enables the entire process to be carried out on-site in a single day.

The treatment process is also simpler, cleaner and more accurate than traditional methods. Usually, patients have to have putty moulds made to create new restorations, but with Cerec, photographs are used, making for a much more comfortable appointment for patients.

Cerec also means that patients can enjoy the benefits of the restoration straight away without having to wait for two weeks; the speed also means that there is no need for temporary restorations.

With only a single appointment required, treatment with Cerec is also more convenient, as patients don’t have to worry about scheduling a series of appointments.

How We Work With Nervous Patients Near Aylesford

Most of the patients we see are nervous about having dental treatment and we are used to seeing patients with severe anxiety and those who have not seen a dentist for many years. We are a very understanding and compassionate team and we pride ourselves on doing everything we can to reassure and comfort our patients and prevent them from feeling any pain.

We use the latest techniques, including sedation, to calm nerves and make patients feel comfortable during treatment, and we also offer facilities and amenities at the practice to help patients to feel at home. Our clinic is modern with all the latest multimedia technology, we invite you to bring music, DVDs or relax with a magazine and we are on hand to provide you with a drink. We can also offer consultations to chat about treatment beforehand and give you an opportunity to meet the dental team and get a feel for the practice.

What is IV sedation?

IV sedation is a technique used to help patients feel relaxed during a medical or dental procedure. The procedure involves injecting sedative medication into a vein to induce a deep state of calm. With sedation, you’re not unconscious and you will have some sense of what is going on, although you won’t feel any pain and you probably won’t remember much after treatment.

Sedation can be really beneficial for nervous patients, not just when they have treatment, but also in the run-up to treatment, as patients are reassured by the fact that they won’t feel pain.

What can I do if I’m a nervous dental patient?

If you’re very nervous about seeing a dentist or you suffer from dental phobia, we are here to help. We will work with you to help you overcome your fears and get the treatment you need with minimal hassle and stress. Simply call us and speak to one of our friendly reception team or pop in and see us.

 

 

 

 

We Offer A Range Of Tooth Restorations For All Our Patients Near Aylesford

Although the teeth are made from sturdy stuff, they are prone to damage and if you have a chipped, broken or worn tooth, we have treatments that can help to restore tooth function and improve the look of the smile. We also have a range of options for patients with missing teeth, including dental bridges.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are restorations, which are designed to protect teeth that have been damaged either through injury or decay. With a crown in place, the tooth is stronger and therefore you are able to enjoy better functionality.

Crowns sit over the top of the tooth and are sometimes known as caps; they can be made from ceramics or metals and are an excellent option for fractured teeth, teeth with large fillings and severely decayed teeth. Crowns are often an option when a cavity is too large for a filling or an infection has spread to the root canals; in this case, a crown is placed following root canal treatment.

Dental bridges

Dental bridges are another type of dental restoration; they are used to replace a missing tooth. Bridges are an appealing option because the treatment process is quick and simple and this treatment is more affordable than dental implants. The aim of a bridge is to replace a tooth and in so doing, bridge a gap. The most common type of bridge is a fixed bridge, which comprises a false tooth, which is supported on either side by a crown. Once a fixed bridge is in place, it can only be removed by a dentist.

There are various materials that can be used to make a dental bridge and we often recommend ceramic bridges because they produce the most natural result. In this case, you shouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the false tooth and the natural tooth.

Bridges offer many benefits for patients; they are custom-designed for the individual, they last around 10-15 years, the treatment process is easy and hassle-free and you can enjoy the benefits of treatment within 2 weeks.

 

 

How Do White Fillings Work For Patients Near Rochester

White fillings are commonly used to repair and restore teeth with cavities and they present an aesthetically pleasing alternative to mercury amalgam fillings. We offer new fillings, as well as replacement white fillings for old metal fillings.

What are white fillings and how do they work?

White fillings are fillings made from composite, which is a very versatile material with a range of uses in modern dentistry. Composite is available in different shades and we are able to choose the closest match for the best aesthetics.

Fillings are restorations, which are designed to fill cavities, which are small holes in the tooth. By filling a hole, the tooth is strengthened and the risk of infection spreading through the tooth is reduced. Without a filling, the tooth would continue to weaken and the risk of infection spreading to the pulp and the root canals would be increased; this means that it is likely that a patient would end up needing more complex treatment, such as a crown and root canal treatment.

What are the benefits of white fillings?

White fillings are advantageous because they strengthen and protect the teeth without having a negative impact on the look of the tooth. It is not possible to distinguish between the filling and the rest of the tooth because composite is so closely matched to the tooth shade. There are also concerns about the safety is using mercury and this is a much safer and more environmentally friendly treatment.

The procedure

Many people dread having dental treatment but having a filling is nothing to worry about. Before we start treatment, we will numb the tooth to make sure that you feel comfortable and you don’t feel any pain. Once the tooth is numb, we will start the procedure by removing decayed tissue from the cavity and then cleaning it to ensure there are no harmful bacteria lurking around. We will then apply bonding agent to the cavity to help the composite to stick. The composite is then placed inside the cavity and spread and shaped to fit the hole perfectly; once this is complete, your dentist will shine a curing light onto the cavity to set the composite and make it firm. This only takes a few seconds and it isn’t painful.

Once the composite is hard, your dentist will check the filling and make any final modifications.

We Also Offer Facial Aesthetic Treatments For A Wrinkle Free Smile Near Rochester

At Kent Smile Studio, we believe in giving our patients choices and access to the best treatments on the market and we are delighted to offer facial rejuvenation treatment to match gorgeous smiles with beautiful, youthful skin. As we get older, the signs of ageing become visible in the complexion and this can affect confidence and self-esteem. With our non-surgical facial treatments, we are able to provide a solution for wrinkles, lines and folds and refresh tired looking, ageing skin to give you bags of confidence, as well as a stunning complexion.

About Botox

Botox is a very popular non-invasive facial treatment, which helps to smooth the skin by reducing muscular contraction in the face. This treatment is often used to combat wrinkles around the eyes, nose and mouth and on the forehead and a single treatment session can make you look years younger.

Botox is a purified form of toxin, which is injected into the skin; it works by blocking the nerve signals, which cause the facial muscles to contract. As a result of reduced contraction, the skin appears smoother and the visibility of lines and wrinkles is greatly reduced.

Is Botox a permanent solution for ageing?

Botox is not a permanent treatment and the results usually last for around 4 months. After this time, it is possible to repeat treatment. Botox is often a good solution for people who want younger looking skin without the stress or risk of cosmetic surgery. With surgery, there are risks attached to going under anesthetic, as well as recovery time and side-effects to consider. In contrast, Botox treatment is temporary, there is no need for anaesthetic and there is no recovery time.

How long does treatment take?

You often hear about Botox being squeezed into a lunch break in the news and it really is possible to do this, if you wish to, as treatment is very quick and the sessions are short with no recovery time required afterwards. Typically, a treatment session takes around 20 minutes. We simply inject Botox into the areas of skin you want to target using a very fine needle and repeat until all the areas have been covered. You will then be free to go and you’ll start to notice the results shortly after.

 

 

Transform Your Smile With Our Stunning Dental Veneers Near Rainham

If you’re searching for a treatment, which can literally transform your smile, dental veneers could be the perfect choice. Veneers have long been used to create beautiful, bright smiles and we have many years of experience in successfully completing stunning veneer makeovers. If your idea of a perfect smile is a beautiful set of sparkling, glossy pearly whites, call us now and book your consultation!

The ins and outs of veneers

Dental veneers come in various guises and there are many different systems on the market. Veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped sheets of porcelain or other materials, which are fixed onto the natural teeth to create the aesthetic of a flawless smile. The two most common types of veneer are composite and porcelain veneers. Composite veneers are a more affordable option, while porcelain veneers are renowned for their stunning iridescent finish.

Porcelain veneers are a very popular choice for celebrities and treatment has become extremely popular over the last decade. With veneers, it is possible for us to create truly stunning smiles from the most unsightly set of teeth. We can use veneers to provide a solution for staining or chipped or worn teeth and we can also help to cover gaps in the smile with veneers. We also see many patients who want their smile to look brighter, whiter and more noticeable and veneers are a very good option in this case.

Veneer treatment

Veneer treatment is simple and there is very little pain involved. When you have chosen your veneers and discussed the design of your smile with our amazing dentists, they will prepare your teeth and create the impressions for your new veneers. Preparation is required to make space for the veneers and involves simply taking away an ultra-thin layer of the tooth surface. Once the teeth are ready, an impression is created using dental putty and this is used as the mould for your new veneers by highly skilled dental technicians.

When your veneers are ready, we will put them in position over your teeth and allow you to have a look and check that you are pleased with the fit and the look; we will then secure them onto your teeth using very strong dental adhesive.

When Would You Need A Crown Or Bridge Near Rainham?

At Kent Smile Studio, we are delighted to offer our patients the best treatments and we use the finest materials and the latest technology to produce the best results. We offer a range of restorative treatments to replace missing teeth, path up hipped and worn teeth and protect and restore teeth than have been infected or weakened through decay. We offer high quality, aesthetically pleasing bridges and crowns to cater for all your restorative needs.

Why would I need a crown or a dental bridge?

Dental crowns are a very useful form of restoration, which are used when a tooth is decayed, fractured or damaged. The purpose of a crown is to strengthen and protect the tooth and to reduce the risk of further injury in the future. Crowns are placed over the top of the tooth and they often have aesthetic benefits too. You may need a crown if you have injured a tooth playing sport or by falling, you have severe decay or you have had root canal treatment; you may also be advised to have a crown if you have had a dental implant fitted.

Dental bridges are an affordable and effective treatment for missing teeth and they are usually recommended when a patient has a single missing tooth. Bridges aim to literally bridge the gap between two teeth and the most common form of bridge, the traditional fixed bridge, is made from a false tooth, which is supported by a crown on either side. Bridges can be made from different materials and they can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth for a seamless, natural look.

The advantages of crown and bridge treatment

Both crowns and bridges offer restorative benefits, which serve to protect the teeth and lower the risk of more serious damage in the future. Crowns help to prevent the spread of infection and enable you to enjoy better tooth function, while bridges make the smile look much healthier and more attractive, as well as allowing you to enjoy clearer speech and chew your food more forcefully.

 

 

Custom Restorations In Only One Day Near Gillingham

If you thought you had to wait 2 weeks for a new crown or a replacement veneer, think again! With Cerec technology, we are able to offer same-day, custom-made restorations.

What is Cerec?

Cerec is an amazing example of modern, innovative dental technology. This system allows us to complete the processes of designing, manufacturing and fitting a new inlay, onlay, crown or veneer, on-site in a single day.

However, with Cerec, there is no putty, no sending away and no waiting around. We can do all these parts in a single treatment session to enable you to enjoy all the benefits of restorative treatment in no time at all.

Cerec takes care of all the stages of restorative treatment. We take a picture of a tooth or a number of teeth using a camera and the image is converted by Cerec into an extremely precise and detailed 3D template. This template is then sent to the milling machine and the bespoke restoration appears minutes later.

What are the benefits of Cerec?

Cerec obviously offers very speedy treatment, which saves you making repeat appointments and spending longer in the dental chair; however, it also makes the process of having treatment much cleaner, simpler and less stressful. There is no need for putty impressions, temporary restorations or repeat injections and the process is more accurate. Cerec also allows patients and dentists to become more involved in the design process.

Who can benefit from Cerec treatment?

Cerec can be beneficial for anyone who needs a new crown, inlay, onlay or veneers; treatment is quick and this is an ideal option for those who are pushed for time due to a hectic schedule.
