If you dream of being able to throw your head back and laugh with wild abandon, then virtually invisible white fillings are the way forward. It takes some creative flair to match your teeth precisely but that′s just what our skilled dentist boasts at FINEST SMILE Dental Studio.
At FINEST SMILE Dental Studio, we use the most effective, modern, tooth-coloured materials. Unlike the more traditional grey amalgam fillings, the tooth-coloured ones look very natural, so no-one will be able to tell you have them.
White fillings are carefully crafted to blend in completely, leaving you with a lovely smile of which you can be proud.
What are the benefits of Fillings done by us?
We will usually numb the tooth and its surrounding area with a local anaesthetic, and will drill the decayed material from the tooth.
When the decay has been removed, the tooth will be filled with tooth coloured fillings. We will then shape the filling, so that it looks as realistic as possible, and so it does not interfere with the way your teeth meet when you bite and chew.
We want you to be confident to flash your white teeth with pride, not concern. To find out more about white fillings please give our friendly team a call at FINEST SMILE Dental Studio on 01202 382418
A crown, sometimes known as a ‘cap’ is a protective cover fitted over the existing structure of a broken or damaged tooth to restore its function and appearance.
Crowns are prescribed as a part of a treatment to restore teeth that have:
Before we begin your treatment we′ll talk you through your options of course as we offer a full range of cosmetic dental crowns. For instance, if you require a crown at the back of your mouth you may prefer to opt for a hardwearing, less expensive crown made from ultra-durable dental composite. Alternatively, if you need a crown towards the front of your mouth you may decide to choose a natural looking cosmetic tooth-coloured one. Whatever type of dental crown is right for you, you can be sure that you′ll be very pleased with the results.
Preparation time will vary depending on the condition of the damaged tooth. The tooth will be reshaped, to ensure that once the crown is fitted, it remains the same size and shape as the natural teeth. It may also need to be built up with a filling first. A local anaesthetic is usually given prior to preparation, to avoid any discomfort. After preparation, an impression is taken of the tooth to be crowned and nearby teeth, using a soft mouldable material. This impression is given to a dental technician, who uses it to build your crown to the exact size and shape required. This will ensure that the crown fits comfortably. When using porcelain crowns, the colour will also be matched to the natural teeth.
The crown can last for many years if good oral hygiene is maintained, depending on the condition of the original tooth.

FINEST SMILE Dental Studio offers an affordable, permanent solution to missing teeth, restoring your smile with dental implants.
A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is screw or cylinder shaped. Crowns, bridges and dentures can all be attached to dental implant to give the most natural, secure and long term solution for the replacement for missing teeth.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth, and serve as artificial ′tooth roots′. A dental implant is made of pure titanium or titanium alloy, and has almost the same size and shape of the root of a tooth. It is inserted into the bone where a tooth is missing. It is biocompatible with bone and integrates fully within it, creating an extremely strong bond. The benefits of dental implants are both functional and cosmetic.
Teeth Now, also known as All on Four (or All on 4)
It is a revolutionary new technique whereby a whole arch of failing or missing teeth is replaced with dental implants in a single visit.
Teeth Now/All on Four can also be carried out for patients who have previously lost their own teeth and currently wear dentures. The temporary teeth are fixed so patients can be free from their dentures on the day of implant placement. Once the healing period is completed and the implants have integrated with the bone, a high-quality, durable permanent titanium fixed bridge is fitted.
This treatment can offer patients a full arch or both arches of fixed replacement teeth. The placement of four to six dental implants at strategic positions and angles provide the foundation upon which a fixed ten tooth bridge can be placed.
For those patients who have suffered ill-fitting dentures or mobile, failing teeth for years, the provision of stable, comfortable, natural-looking teeth through dental implants really can restore that self-confidence and vitality that has often been lost.
Teeth Now/All on Four/All on 4 can benefit patients who:
We appreciate that the cost of dental implants is significant and the decision to go ahead with treatment is not made lightly. It is a worthwhile investment in a fixed long-term solution and patients benefit from high value and a very reasonable 'cost per year'..
All on 4 treatment is carried out in two phases, the initial phase provides patients with a high quality temporary bridge which is replaced with a long term definitive bridge following healing and remodelling of the soft tissues.
Three dimensional imaging (Cone Beam CT scan) of treatment area, single jaw:
Typical fee for Teeth Now/All on Four/All on 4 :
Stage One: Implant placement stage
Stage Two: (3 - 8 months after stage one) - Hybrid Titanium Bridge
Upgrades for all on 4 bridges
Superior all ceramic restorations can be used for enhanced aesthetics and durability as part of the initial treatment plan. Alternatively patients can opt for upgraded bridges some years later.
Sometimes when a tooth is lost a space is left which can be unsightly, can cause difficulty in chewing or can result in movement of the adjacent teeth. There are many options for filling spaces including implant and dentures, but the most popular is the dental bridge. If you have lost one or two teeth but would rather not wear a denture, you may want to opt for a bridge. Bridges are a series of crowns joined together to cover or close a space left by the loss of a tooth. They are permanent and once bonded into place will look and feel similar to natural tooth.
Bridges can be supported by natural teeth or by implants. At FINEST SMILE Dental Studio we will check the health of your gums and the supported teeth to ensure that they are suitable for treatment and take appropriate measures if they are not. We will discuss all your options with you to ensure that you can keep your mouth healthy and your smile stunning with a well-fitting and natural looking bridge.

Dentures are removable replacements for your missing teeth, designed to look and function like your own natural teeth and surrounding gum tissues. They are generally made from an ultramodern acrylic material which is high-strength and durable. If you look after the dentures then this material is unlikely to stainor darken and will remain fresh and natural looking for many years.
The fact that we provide comfortable, natural-looking dentures is a real benefit to those people who no longer possess their natural teeth but for whom socialising and showing a confident smile is very important.
Our modern knowledge and techniques will ensure that dentures from FINEST SMILE Dental Studio look great and feel comfortable, allowing patients to eat with confidence. We offer variety of dentures to suit most budgets and advances in denture technology mean that some foods that were off limits to denture wearers in the past, can now be eaten more easily.
If you have several missing teeth, possibly from some time ago, then you will benefit from having dentures as they will provide support for your cheeks and lips. When we design your dentures this way it can reduce the amount of lines and wrinkles around your face, this has the result of making a more youthful look and can literally take years off you. This is the difference between a denture without any thought, and a denture from FINEST SMILE Dental Studio.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q. What will dentures feel like?
New dentures may feel awkward for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheeks and tongue learn to keep them in place. It is not unusual to experience minor irritation and soreness initially. You may find that saliva flow temporarily increases. These problems should diminish with wear.
Q. Will I be able to eat with my dentures?
Eating will take a little practice. Start with soft foods cut into small pieces. Chew slowly using both sides of your mouth at the same time to prevent the dentures tipping. As you become accustomed to chewing, add other foods until you return to your normal diet. Be cautious with hot food/drink or hard sharp-edged bones or shells.
Q. Will dentures change how I speak?
Pronouncing certain words may require practice. Reading out aloud and repeating troublesome words will help. If your dentures ″click″ while you′re talking, speak slowly. You may find that your dentures occasionally slip out slightly when you cough, laugh or smile. Reposition them by biting down and swallowing. Soon you will be able to cope very well with your new dentures.
Q. How do I take care of my dentures?
Dentures are very delicate and may break if dropped even only a few inches. Stand over a folded towel or basin of water when handling dentures for cleaning. Like natural teeth, dentures must be brushed daily to remove food deposits and plaque. A tooth/ denture brush with soft bristles can be used, as hard-bristles brushes can damage the dentures. Some denture wearers use hand soap and mild dishwashing liquid to clean their dentures. More advanced denture creams and tables are widely available. Avoid using other household product cleaners, which may be too abrasive or even toxic.
Tooth Extractions / Oral Surgery
We understand that having a tooth removed can be an upsetting and anxious time. If possible, we′ll always try and help you save your tooth, but if a removal is needed, we will do everything possible to make it as comfortable and simple for you as possible.
The most common reasons for tooth extraction is removing seriously damaged teeth because of tooth decay, a fractured or broken tooth or it may also be necessary to reduce dental crowding or the risk of infection and in the case of preparing for a denture.
Tooth extraction procedures today are far less painful than ever before, thanks to powerful anaesthetics. In many cases, a patient who has a tooth extracted experiences little or no discomfort and only minor bleeding.
We′ll always make sure that the area is completely numb before removing any tooth. We have a great team of specialist for more complicated cases including wisdom teeth removal.
Most tooth extractions are a straight forward procedure, followed by at-home care that includes rest and gentle care of the extraction site. Patients with extracted teeth sometimes need to take an antibiotic, and at the very least, take precautions following the procedure to ensure that infection doesn′t occur. Smoking, vigorous brushing, rinsing, and drinking liquids through straws are discouraged during the post-operative period because they hinder healing and may cause the wound to open.
Your wisdom teeth normally emerge from the gum (erupt) after the ages of 17. They are the last of the large grinding teeth at the back of the mouth to emerge. Some people never develop wisdom teeth; others can have up to four - one in each corner of the mouth.
Often wisdom teeth cause no problems but sometimes there is just not enough space left in the mouth for them to emerge properly. When this happens, they are described as ″Impacted″. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, swelling, infection or damage to the teeth next to them. If the gum around the wisdom tooth is swollen the jaw may become stiff and sore. Infection at the back of the mouth can cause bad breath and a bad taste.
If you have problems such as infection, cysts, tooth decay or gum disease around a wisdom tooth you should think about having it removed. If you have impacted wisdom teeth that are not causing problems you do not need to have them removed.
What′s true for almost everyone on this planet (except the really lucky ones) is that, at some points in their lives, people will need dental care. The mouth is resistant to many bacteria that constantly invade it and teeth have their weak spots and eventually they will be exposed to decay.
Dental check-up generally takes about 20-30 minutes. Using a probe, our dentist will check all sides of every tooth, looking for tiny points of decay. If everything is fine, all you pay is the minimum check-up fee. If there′s any suspicion, an x-ray of the tooth will be taken. Depending on the situation, you′ll be advised what′s needed to fix the problem.
A dental check-up every six months puts your mind at rest that nothing will be allowed to get out of control. Even if you′ve had a lot of dental restoration up till now, you can ensure that in future everything will be much easier for you.
At each check-up, our dentist will:
Generally, the lower your risk of dental problems, the longer you can wait before your next check-up. So people with good oral health will probably need to attend only once every 12 months,but those with more problems will need check-ups more often.

Cleaning & Prevention
The best way to reduce decay and gum disease, and to maintain the health of your mouth is to attend regular dental appointments. This is called preventive dentistry, where we catch any potential problems before they develop, and so the amount of treatment required is reduced. This means you can avoid having so many extractions and fillings, and are more likely to keep your own teeth for life. Cleaning & Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident and beautiful smile.
At Finest Smile Dental Studio your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:
Removal of calculus (tartar):
Calculus is plaque that gets hardened overtime and harbours bacteria. It is caused by the continual accumulation of minerals from saliva and becomes firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can be threatening to the health of gums. Calculus can only be removed with special dental instruments.
Elimination of plaque:
Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
Teeth Polishing is removing stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
To request an appointment for Cleaning & Prevention call us at 01202 382418.
Bad breath is actually very common, and usually the persons with it are unaware they even have it. Nevertheless, the bad breath cure is effective and relatively fuss-free.
In 90% of cases, bad breath is generated in the mouth, where bacteria produce gases which tend to smell like rotten eggs. These bacteria often hide in the areas that you miss when you clean your teeth, as well as on the back of your tongue.
Smoking is another prime culprit – by drying your mouth it makes the odour worse and also builds-up harmful tar and nicotine inside your mouth.
Under our care, we will investigate your mouth, diagnose the exact cause of your bad breath and show you exactly how to tackle it as part of your regular routine. If gum disease is the cause of halitosis, our expert dental hygienists will clean the pockets between your teeth and gums to remove the ingrained bacteria.
If you have any concerns about the freshness of your breath please do not be embarrassed to tell us. Once we are aware of your concerns we can act to ensure your confidence is restored quickly. Before your appointment do not smoke, use any mouthwashes or chew any gum. Try not to wear any after shave or perfumes. This will allow us to make a fair judgement as to whether a problem exists. Achieving lasting fresh breath is just a phone call away. Call us at 01202 382418
