Routine Examinations

With routine dental examinations we can help you preserve and protect your smile by detecting dental problems before they worsen. Prevention is better than a cure as this will help you avoid the traditional, and often costly, pattern of tooth decay, fillings and tooth loss.

As a new patient, your initial dental examination will last approximately 30 minutes and provides ample time for one of our experienced and highly professional dentists to give you a thorough dental check-up. Radiographs (x-rays) and full mouth hygiene (ultrasonic scaling and polishing) are included in the examination charge.

Ultrasonic Cleaning

Commonly used first is an ultrasonic instrument which uses tickling vibrations to knock larger pieces of tartar loose. It also sprays a cooling mist of water while it works to wash away debris and keep the area at a proper temperature. The device typically emits a humming or high pitched whistling sound. This may seem louder than it actually is because the sound may get amplified inside your head, just like when you put an electric toothbrush into your mouth.


Once all the surfaces are smooth, the dental worker may polish your teeth. Polishing is done using a slow speed handpiece with a soft rubber cup that spins on the end. Prophylaxis (short for prophy) paste – a special gritty toothpaste-like material – is scooped up like ice cream into the cup and spun around on the teeth to make them shiny smooth.

White or tooth coloured fillings provide a healthier more natural alternative to traditional amalgam fillings.

What are the benefits of white fillings?

The main benefit of white fillings is that, as your dentist, we have a large choice of tooth-coloured shades to choose from. Selecting the shade that is closest to your own teeth in colour, we can design your white filling to match your own teeth in shape and colour resulting in it being practically invisible to the eye!

White fillings also require a less invasive restoration when filling the hole left by decay in your tooth. This means that less of your healthy tooth tissue would need to be removed with a white filling.

White fillings v silver (amalgam) fillings?

Traditional amalgam fillings contain a mixture of silver, tin, copper and mercury making them strong, durable and ideal for the back teeth that are less visible.

A white filling, which starts off life as a softer and easier material for our dentists to shape and mould, is far more effective in repairing chipped teeth or restoring decayed teeth in the more visible part of your smile and the front of your mouth. Once moulded to the desired shape, a blue light is then shone on the while filling to harden it and to fix it into it’s final shape.

When would I require white fillings?

For teeth that are either cracked or chipped, tooth-coloured fillings may be used to build up the tooth to restore its look and feel.  Closing gaps, reshaping uneven or short teeth and filling cavities caused by tooth decay may also be treated.

How much do white fillings cost?

The cost of a white filling starts from £105 however the cost of treatment is dependent on the size of the filling required to restore or repair your tooth. Your dentist will be able to provide you with a cost for this during your dental examination and before any treatment begins. We will always discuss your options before beginning treatment so to ensure we provide you with the right treatment that suits your budget and individual requirements.

A crown is a protective cover fitted over the existing structure of a broken or damaged tooth to restore function and appearance. With no black line at gum level and made to match your natural teeth in their size, shape and colour, an all-ceramic crown provides a very natural looking restoration and smile.

Bridges area series of crowns joined together to cover or close a space left by the loss of a tooth. Restore the strength and shape of your tooth with a Dental Crown

Sometimes known as a ‘cap’ a dental crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth that has been broken, damaged or decayed to a point where a filling is not suitable. The crown may be closely matched to the surrounding teeth in shape, colour and size and once fitted provide a seamless and permanent restoration to your tooth.

Why would my Dentist recommend a Crown?

If your tooth has become broken, decayed or damaged in such a way that a filling is not strong enough to support the tooth or if you are looking to cover an existing amalgam filling, then a Crown may be recommended by your dentist as the best treatment.

Crowns can last a lifetime and are an ideal treatment for the following:

  • To restore badly broken teeth
  • To restore teeth that have been heavily filled
  • To reshape an uneven or unsightly tooth
  • To restore the brightness to discoloured teeth
  • To protect a root treated tooth
  • To hold a bridge or denture in place

How will my Dentist fit my new Crown?

Your tooth will be prepared by your dentist by removing the outer surface of the tooth to the required shape for the Crown. Once the tooth has been prepared, your Dentist will take an impression of the prepared tooth, together with one from the opposite jaw, to record the bite. The impressions are then sent to our expert, dental technicians in our dental laboratory where your new crown is handcrafted and tailored to you. A temporary Crown is fitted until your return visit, where your new, permanent Crown will be fitted and cemented in place.

How much does a Crown cost?

The cost of crown at Stamford Bridge Dental starts from £209 however the cost of your treatment will depend on the material used such as metal/ porcelain, all ceramic or gold. When you come in to see your dentist at Stamford Bridge Dentists, we will talk you through the treatment procedure and associated costs of treatment before any dental work is carried out. Should you have any questions, please always feel free to ask.

Several missing teeth and in need of a Bridge?

Used to replace missing teeth, a Dental Bridge is made up of Crowns fitted to the teeth either side of a gap in the mouth. To prevent the need for a denture or dental implants, a Dental Bridge is used to restore the look and feel of a complete smile.

When are Dental Bridges needed?

Dental Bridges are strongly advised when you have a missing tooth as a gap in your smile can affect:

A person’s bite. This comes as a result of the teeth leaning into the empty spaces and altering the way in which the lower and upper teeth bite together

  • A person’s general appearance, oral health and smile
  • The way in which a person speaks
  • Confidence when smiling (especially for photographs)
  • The actual shape of the face
  • The probability of developing gum disease or tooth decay as a result of the accumulated food in the gap

What are the different types of Bridges available?

Dental bridges come in three differing types: 1. Traditional fixed bridge – made of two porcelain crowns with a pontic (the tooth being replace) in the middle. As the name suggests, these dental bridges are fixed in and can’t be taken out. The pontic is mostly made from porcelain fused to either metal or ceramics. 2. A Maryland bridge or resin bonded bridge – both of these bridges are only appropriate when the teeth either side of the gap are healthy and strong or if the gap from a missing front tooth. The pontic is created by fusing plastic with metal bands bonded to neighbouring teeth with resin. As always, the fused bands are hidden from the view of others. 3. Cantilever bridges – these kinds of bridges are really made for areas of lower stress such as the lower front teeth. Cantilever bridges are needed when there is only one tooth present on a side of an empty gap, the pontic is anchored to only one (but sometimes more) adjacent teeth on one side.

What are the advantages of Dental Bridges?

Generally, you only require two appointments to fit a bridge.

If you make sure to keep good dental hygiene then they can last for 10-15 years.

Through having missing teeth, your speech, bite, appearance and overall confidence can be affected. A Dental Bridge is a solution to these and other concerns with your smile.

Porcelain veneers are a popular treatment option amongst celebrities as they offer a quick and easy way to change the shape and look of a smile as well as to close gaps, re-align crowded or protruding teeth and whiten teeth that have become severely discoloured.
