What is encompassed as part of a smile makeover?

  • Tooth whitening.
  • Orthodontic treatment.
  • Fillings/white fillings
  • Dental implants.
  • CEREC crowns (single day crowns).

 

Let’s break down some of the treatments on our list above…

 

Tooth whitening

Tooth whitening at Fresh is a bespoke process where the whitening trays are made up to be an exact fit for your teeth, rendering the treatment 100% safe. You should always seek to have this treatment performed by a medical professional and never an unqualified beauty therapists as this can cause irrevocable damage to your teeth. You can read more about this here.

 

Veneers

Dental veneers are porcelain shells that fit over a damaged, decayed, discoloured or chipped tooth.

 

Orthodontic treatment

Fresh offer several types of orthodontic treatment including Invisalign (removable discreet aligners) and Cfast (fixed aesthetic braces for cosmetic issues).

 

Dental implants

Do you have a missing tooth? Replacing a missing tooth as soon as possible is essential to your dental and overall health. Your chances of developing gum disease are increased the longer a missing tooth is left untreated and your jawbone can also suffer as a result as it does not have the support it needs from your teeth.

 

White fillings

Do you have a filling you’re not happy with? White fillings can replace this and render your smile more aesthetically pleasing. White composite fillings are also stronger and do not cause extreme sensitivity when consuming hot or cold food and drinks.

 

CEREC crowns

Fresh Dental are one of the only practices in the Maidstone area to offer same day crowns. This incredible technology allows patients to undergo the fitting of a custom crown in a single appointment. The crown in made to be inkeeping with the natural aesthetic of your existing teeth.

 

Cosmetic dentistry and anti-wrinkle treatment

Many patients choose to combine their smile makeover with facial aesthetic treatments in order to maximise the effects of the cosmetic dentistry treatment. You can take a look at the different facial aesthetics treatments we offer here.

Are dental implants the right option for me?

Thinking about getting dental implants to replace a missing tooth? Here are the things you need to know.

What exactly is a dental implant?

Dental implants are tiny titanium screws that replace your tooth’s root. They are considered to be the best option after a natural tooth, fusing with the patient’s jawbone and thus becoming a natural part of the body.

 

Who is eligible for dental implants?

It’s rare for patients not to tolerate dental implants and they can be used to treat tooth loss across a wide range of ages – it really depends on the health of the patient’s jawbone. In some cases, a person’s jawbone is not strong enough to support the implant as there is insufficient bone. If this is the case, a bone graft can help to create new bone to support the implant. Please ask your dentist here at Fresh for more details on this. Your dentist will always carry out a thorough assessment to ensure that you are 100% compatible for dental implants.

 

What are the benefits of getting dental implants?

Unlike dentures, dental implants are a fixed solution and will not cause you any stress in social situations by falling out or get in your way when eating and speaking. You can maintain them in the same way as you would your natural teeth and if you are suffering from resorption, they are the only option that will help tackle this. Check out our blog ‘The benefits of dental implants’ to find out more.

 

Do dental implants have a high success rate?

A very high success rate in fact. In 98.5% of cases, patients undergo the procedure without rejecting the implant – a very rare occurrence.

 

What is involved in the procedure?

The procedure itself is not very long and you will be under locals anaesthetic whilst the team here at Fresh place the implant. You will then need a healing period in order to allow the implant to fuse with your jawbone.

Are cFast braces for me? Frequently Asked Questions…

What is Cfast?

Cfast treatment is an orthodontic-based method used to treat misaligned, crowded or crooked teeth. Cfast focuses on your front teeth, visible when you smile.

What properties do Cfast braces possess?

Cfast are designed to be a discreet treatment and incorporate tooth-coloured brackets and wires into their design to achieve this.

 

How do Cfast braces work their magic?

The nickel titanium wires work with the ceramic brackets to gradually and gently guide your teeth into a desired position.

 

What is the difference between Cfast braces and tradition metal braces?

As well as the aesthetic differences, Cfast differ from traditional metal braces in a couple of other ways. Whilst traditional metal braces aim to shift your teeth and jaws, Cfast braces focus on moving the teeth for purely cosmetic reasons and do not address more serious functional issues. They’re also not suitable for younger patients. Here at Fresh we offer Invisalign Express which is a similar treatment but focuses on less complex orthodontic issues and can straighten your teeth in as little as 6 months– take a look here.

 

How will the braces affect my lifestyle?

You will have to make a couple of amendments to your diet, avoiding harder foods so that they do not damage your brace. Your should also avoid chewy foods that could become lodged in the smaller parts of your brace, as these foods will make your more susceptible to the build up of plaque and tartar.

 

How long does treatment take?

Cfast braces are designed to be a short-term orthodontic treatment (fairly obvious from the name!). Treatment will take up to 9 months though most patients only require 4-6 months in order to achieve the results they were expecting.

 

Your dentist here at Fresh will be able to provide you with a prospective 3D image of your teeth after treatment, so you’ll know what to expect.

All about All-On-Four 

Are you having problems with your teeth? Or is your bridge beginning to give you problems? Perhaps you’re done with wearing dentures because of their impracticalities? All-on-4 is a cost-effective way or replacing missing teeth.

All-on-4 replaces an entire arch or both arches of failing or missing teeth using a fixed bridge attached to some dental implants over a single visit.

 

 

How do All-On-4 implants work?

The day you come in for treatment your dentist will fit you with a temporary bridge for the new implants. You will not need to wear dentures for the entire treatment period. 6 months down the line you will need to return to us here in Maidstone for the final fitting of your bridge. The bridge will be designed to your exact tooth structure and will offer a natural aesthetic. Similarly, your permanent bridge will also be cosmetically sound and reinforced with with metal to ensure the bridge is long-lasting.

 

 

Can I benefit from All-On-4?

If you already wear dentures, All-on-4 could benefit you, offering big lifestyle improvements. Many patients with dentures come to us at Fresh saying that their dentures have become loose and All-on-4 tackles this as it is a fixed treatment. Patients who are missing an entire or both arches of teeth find that this is a very cost-effective solution as opposed to having individually placed implants.

 

 

The benefits of All-on-4 implants

  • Fixed solution so you don’t have to worry about taking them out as with dentures.
  • Enjoy the foods you love without jeopardising your teeth.
  • Chew, smile and kiss with confidence – you may have experienced some embaressment during social situations where your dentures are concerned (loose and wobbly/falling out when you eat). This is not the case with dental implants.
  • Cost-effective – as the implants are on a bridge, the cost is reduced.
