Tooth Coloured Biomimetic Restorations
Tooth coloured fillings are the best way to go. We use bonded composite rather than silver amalgam fillings. The composite material is matched to your existing tooth colour to keep your tooth looking natural with no more unsightly old black or silver fillings. For larger areas we recommend porcelain inlays to add strength and return teeth to their natural appearance.
Veneers are used to reshape, rebuild and strengthen crooked, chipped or broken front teeth. If your teeth only have small chips or do not need significant shape change, the most appropriate veneer to use is one made of composite material. The composite is tooth-coloured, and is sculpted over the surface of the tooth to create the new shape.
When it comes to first impressions, your smile can be a tremendous asset or your greatest liability. Your smile can be quickly and easily enhanced by using our home teeth whitening system. A mild whitening gel is placed in a custom tray that is worn over your teeth in the comfort of your own home.
A bridge is used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. A crown is placed on the teeth on either side of the gap, forming a ‘bridge’, using either porcelain on its own or combined with zirconium or gold. A mould is sent to our master ceramist, who will hand tint the porcelain to match the colour and shape of your surrounding teeth.
Safe Mercury/Amalgam Filling Removal
For your comfort and safety, we remove existing amalgam restorations isolated with rubberdam. The amalgam is removed in large pieces and any vapors are quickly removed with high volume suction. We then repair the tooth using state of the art biomimetic restorations.
Bonded Composite Restorations
Composite bonding is an alternative to veneers and is used for small corrections, such as to reshape or restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, have gaps or are naturally uneven. During the bonding procedure, a mild etching solution is applied to the tooth to roughen the surface and allow for the resin to bond with the tooth.
Veneers are used to reshape, rebuild and strengthen crooked, chipped or broken front teeth. Where significant shape change is necessary, porcelain veneers are the preferred choice. We shape the surface of the tooth, then take a mould which is sent to our master ceramists. Hand tinted porcelain veneers are then custom-made to perfectly match the surrounding teeth.
A beautiful smile is just a phone call away. If you’re unhappy with your gummy smile, a simple ‘gum lift’ may be the answer. Your smile may be enhanced by simply recontouring the shape and height of your gums to show more tooth.
Crowns are used to protect, strengthen and rebuild broken or weakened teeth, using porcelain alone or in combination with zirconium or gold. Following preparation of your tooth, a mould is sent to our master ceramist. We use the finest porcelain which is hand tinted to colour match your surrounding teeth and produce a natural looking smile.
Oral Hygiene Plans
Oral hygiene is essential if you want to keep your natural teeth for the long term. Our dental hygienists can advise you on how to fight plaque, choose the right toothbrush, floss and much more. Visiting your dentist and hygienist for regular treatment is an essential part of maintaining your natural smile for life, however, what you do between visits is also critical to maintaining optimal oral health.
Dr Ewan Jones has been practicing biomimetic and cosmetic dentistry for 35 years.
Biomimetic is a highly advanced approach to oral care which aims to preserve the health of your natural teeth using non-invasive treatments.
It can reduce and even avoid the need for costly, painful and time-consuming reconstructive surgery.
Joined by his team of experienced dental hygienists in his serene city centre clinic, Ewan Jones provides holistic care for a lifetime of stronger, healthier natural teeth.
My aim is to restore the tooth to as close to its original natural condition and never compromise on quality.
THE BIOMIMETIC DIFFERENCE
Approaching oral health care with biomimetic dentistry can dramatically reduce the need to remove teeth or grind them down for crowns, root canals and other procedures.
If a tooth becomes fractured or begins to decay, that tooth is susceptible to more severe problems like infection or cavities. Biomimetic dentistry aims to address the concern immediately and strengthen the tooth, which can protect it from further destruction caused by bacteria.
For example, rather than filling a cavity with external materials, biomimetic dentistry attempts to kill bacteria with non-invasive treatments and address the cause of the cavity to help prevent further tooth decay.
This approach is important because it helps keep your natural teeth healthy, eliminating expensive oral procedures that can be costly, painful and time-consuming.
