Transforming your Smile with Composite Bonding

Composite Bonding is a modern, minimally invasive approach to aesthetically transform your smile. One of the main advantages of bonding is that there are NO NEEDLES involved. There is NO DRILLING of the natural tooth structure, meaning no irreversible damage can be done!
If you’re wondering how it works, our highly skilled clinicians use tooth-coloured composite resin material. They carefully sculpt this on to your natural teeth, aiming to achieve balance and harmony in your smile. This is achieved by mimicking the natural anatomy of each tooth. By respecting how a tooth should look, we finish with a result in which you and our patients, can be proud to show off your natural smile.

Maintaining your composite bonding

Composite bonding on average lasts between 5-7 years, with a variety of factors which can affect this, such as maintenance, oral hygiene, habits such as tooth grinding, plus more. However, any such factors which may increase the chance of problems will be picked up during our initial consultation and factored in our planning, ensuring you are in safe hands all the way through!

The smile transformations that can be achieved with composite bonding are extraordinary. What makes it even more special is that the natural tooth is completely untouched! This allows for the biological health of your teeth to remain completely intact. As well as leaving you with an aesthetically pleasing smile. As a result, we believe this treatment option is a “win-win” scenario if you’re somebody who is thinking of transforming your smile. So, why not book in to start planning your smile makeover!

Kids Fixed Braces

Knighton Dental fixed braces for children

Struggling to get braces on the NHS for your Child?

Unfortunately not every child will be eligible for free fixed braces on the NHS and this is determined by strict criteria from the NHS. Even if your child is eligible for NHS treatment you then maybe told there is a 2-4 year waiting list, or longer. If your child is eligible for NHS treatment and the waiting time is not a concern, we strongly advise you to have treatment on the NHS.

Has your child not qualified for braces on the NHS?

Your child may have attended an appointment for an orthodontic assessment and you have been told they do not qualify for treatment on the NHS or the waiting list is too long and you do not want to wait. Here at Knighton Dental we offer private options for fixed braces from as little as £24 per month per arch.

Are you on a never ending waiting list?

At Knighton Dental we offer a free consultation with our experienced treatment coordinator. During your childs appointment all options can be discussed along with finance packages available.
We are fortunate at Knighton Dental to have Dr Neena Amin providing our fixed orthodontic treatment (braces). Neena has a special interest in orthodontics and at Knighton Dental her practice is limited to orthodontic treatments. After your child’s free consultation with our treatment coordinator, Dr Neena Amin will be able to see you to assess your child’s clinical needs.

What are fixed braces?

Conventional fixed braces are a great treatment that deliver exceptional results. Metal or ceramic (tooth coloured) brackets are bonded to the enamel of every tooth and a wire is then maneuvered between each bracket.

The wire is then connected to the bracket using elastic O-rings (O-rings can be clear or as adventurous as you like with different colours available). The arch wire can then be adjusted to pull teeth back into a better position over time.

Cleaning while wearing fixed braces

Even though Dr Neena Amin will see your child for regular appointments to monitor your child’s fixed braces. A good oral hygiene routine must be maintained at home.
Brackets and wires can encourage food to build up. This is why it is so important to encourage your child to brush in between their teeth and braces. Knighton Dental recommends brushing twice a day for two minutes to help clean around brackets and under your wire, as well as an interdental toothbrush.

We also advise avoiding hard or sticky foods that aren’t brace friendly such as:

Crusty bread
Chewy or crunchy foods- such a chewy sweet, toffee, chewing gum
Apples
Popcorn
Nuts

Sticky foods can get lodged between the braces and teeth. When this happens and if sticky foods are not removed, bacteria could grow and develop and eventually lead to tooth decay and pain.

Investing in your child’s smile can give them self-confidence that they can use for the rest of their lif

What are Dentures

Knighton Dental Your Dentures Leicester

 

What are dentures ?

Dentures can be used to replace teeth on your upper and lower jaw or both. Dentures are a more affordable way to replace missing teeth, compared to dental bridges or dental implants.
Replacing missing teeth can give you back not only your ability to eat and speak clearly, it also gives back your confidence and could even make you look years younger.

At Knighton Dental we offer many different options to replace missing teeth and dentures are one of them. There are different denture options available here at Knighton Dental which fit a wide range of needs and budgets.
If dentures are something you’ve been thinking about, whether that’s a new denture to replace missing teeth or replacing your current denture we can help with your denture needs.

We offer a free consultation with our Treatment Coordinator, during this consultation she will be able to discuss different denture options available to you along with procedures, costs and finance/payments options. Depending on your clinical needs, number of teeth missing and your goals we may recommend partial dentures, complete dentures, or implant supported dentures.

Partial Dentures

A partial dentures are a great option when just a few teeth are missing. Partial dentures can have an acrylic or metal base and they also require natural teeth to anchor the denture in place. We can add clasps or other attachments to help support the denture from moving around.

Complete Dentures

Crowns and Bridges

If you are missing all teeth on an entire arch, conventional complete dentures are a perfect solution. Complete dentures are best created after the tissue has healed upon removal of existing teeth. The healing process can take around 3 months. Alternatively, immediate dentures can be made before remaining teeth that need extracting and these can be fitted immediately after tooth removal. This avoids any social embarrassment. As the gum tissue heals the tissue sink during this process which can effect the fit and lead to adjustments needed after several weeks.

Implant-supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are the most permanent type of denture restoration. Implants are placed into the jawbone to replace the missing root to provide stability and support for the dentures, which will snap into place via an abutment. Implants also prevent bone loss. When a natural tooth is missing, the lack of stimulation from the root can cause the bone to deteriorate. Eventually, this can lead to further oral health problems including bone loss, gum tissue loss, and tooth loss. The implant acts as a replacement for the tooth root, stimulating the jawbone and preserving its structure.

Whenever tooth loss occurs, it’s important to seek prompt treatment. Replacing missing teeth will not only give you back a beautiful smile.

It will also improve your oral health and give you the confidence to eat and speak without worry.

What to expect from your denture!

 

We want your dentures not only to function well but also look good. For us to achieve this, it is important for us to understand what results our patients are looking for. Patient’s expectations are all very different. Some patients may want their dentures to look more natural and replicate what their natural teeth looked like before. This might be by deliberately putting gaps between the teeth giving a more natural look.

Some patients what to achieve that perfect smile or a “ Hollywood Smile” with their new dentures. That’s why it is so important to discuss this with our patients before we start treatment, that way we are able to create the denture you want.
During your denture journey there are several appointments before we come to fit your final denture this allow us to ensure the bite, fit and cosmetics of your denture is perfect.

Before the fit appointment a dress rehearsal appointment is made which allows you to try the denture and see how it looks. At this stage we can fine tune and make adjustments to the denture to make sure you are completely happy with it. We can have as many rehearsal fits as you like until its perfect!
