Restorative Dentistry

lockerbie-teeth

Skilled in treating damaged teeth, we at Lockerbie Dental offer a variety of treatment options.

Teeth can become damaged in a variety of ways, including:

  • Decay
  • Erosion, which is irreparable wear to the teeth caused by acids present in food and drink
  • Abrasion, often caused by incorrect brushing
  • Attrition (grinding)
  • Accidental damage

We have considerable experience in restoring damaged teeth, and use the very latest in dental technology in order to help restore your smile to its former glory.

Bridges

Bridges are often used to replace missing teeth and are a good alternative to dental implants or dentures. They are permanently attached to the adjacent tooth/teeth and can help prevent bone loss, gum disease and decay, as well as their obvious cosmetic benefits.

Dental Inlays and Outlays

An inlay is a type of filling fitted to a tooth cavity or crack, whereas an onlay covers a missing tooth cusp. Both techniques are used to rebuild teeth that have lost a significant amount of structure due to decay or trauma.

They are used to restore teeth where the damage is not significant enough to require a dental crown.

Inlays and onlays can also be used to replace unsightly metal fillings in more prominent areas of the mouth. They are similar to fillings but rather than being placed into the tooth they are cemented in to place.

Crowns

A crown is a tooth shaped cap which is placed over the tooth in order to restore its size, function and/or appearance, whilst protecting the tooth from further damage. At Lockerbie Dental our personalised service means that we assure each and every crown is made to measure and results in a natural addition to your smile.

Dentures

Dentures are a removable plate holding one or more artificial teeth. As well as improving your appearance, they can also help with speech and chewing. Our dentures are produced using high quality materials and the most modern methods, ensuring they are strong, long lasting, comfortable and so natural looking that no-one will ever suspect you are wearing them!
