Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are restorations that sit on top of a natural tooth, they aim to restore teeth back to its original shape and strength. Crowns are recommended when a tooth is fractured, had a root filling or is discoloured. Crowns come in all different materials and the dentist will help advise which is the best.
Completing a crown normally takes two visits, in the first visit the dentist will prepare the tooth for the crown by shaping the tooth, taking a mould of your tooth and placing a temporary crown to protect the prepared tooth. The second visit is to fit the crown that the lab has made especially to fit your tooth.
Bridges sure used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges are excellent at restoring appearance, function and preventing other teeth moving into the gaps. Bridges are fixed into the mouth using the teeth either side for anchorage, therefore can not be removed for cleaning. To encourage longevity and health a complimentary Hygienest visit will be provided following placement of your bridge. Bridges come in a variety of materials and shades, that can be matched to the existing teeth to give a natural appearance.
Veneers give a beautiful natural look to teeth, and are usually the treatment of choice for smile make overs.
The preparation and requirements of each case is different, you may require one or several veneers with some or no tooth removal to achieve the most aesthetic result.
Tooth Coloured Filllings
There is also an opportunity to replace existing silver fillings. As well as preventing that ‘grey’ colour when you smile, the tooth coloured fillings are healthier for your teeth as they preserve more of your natural tooth. The material can also be used to correct minor irregularities in front teeth, and mask discoloured teeth.
Snap-On Smile ® is a more affordable cosmetic solution to achieve the smile you want, and is an excellent choice for:
- Gaps, crooked or stained teeth
- Patients that are not suitable for bridges or implants
- Patients that want a Hollywood smile quickly
- Anyone that wears a partial denture and wants an alternative.
Lumineers® are digitally designed to be ultra thin, therefore fit seamlessly over your teeth giving you a beautiful natural looking smile.
Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers® require no or very minimal tooth preparation therefore making the procedure pain free, and removes the need for numbing and temporaries.
While many dentists offer veneers, not all dentists have been trained to deliver the signature benefits of Lumineers®, therefore Madoc Dental Care is proud to be pioneering in this new treatment.
Orthodontics Invisalign ®
Before you embark on this journey you have the opportunity to see what the end result will aim to look like. This is great motivation, as you can monitor the changes as you go, facilitated with a new app for your mobile.
The Invisalign® system is different to the traditional methods of straightening teeth, as there are no wires or metal. This makes them difficult for others to see, and as the aligners are removable it also means you can take them out to keep good oral hygiene and enjoy your meals.

Teeth can loose their natural brightness and colour over time influenced by smoking, drinking tea, coffee and red wine. This in turn can affect the overall appearance of a smile and self esteem. At Madoc Dental Care the practitioners are fully trained in using the only teeth whitening system in the world to guarantee a B1 shade – Enlighten. There are a number of enlighten products available, so book for a complimentary consultation for advice.
Will teeth whitening damage my teeth?
No, at Madoc Dental Care we only use whitening products that contain the legally allowed concentration of bleach that does not remove any tooth structure or cause adverse effects. In a minority of cases teeth whitening can cause some temporary sensitivity, however our highly trained professionals will advise you regarding this and highlight your risk.
Please note, it is illegal for non-dental personnel to sell teeth whitening products. What they sell you has a risk of causing permanent damage to your teeth and blistering your gums.
How long will the whitening process take?
Generally it will take two weeks to get to the desired result, however in some circumstances it may take longer.
Is teeth whitening permanent?
Results are long lasting, however it does depend on an individual’s smoking habits, food and drink intake that can re-stain the teeth. Maintenance is simple once the initial treatment is completed by occasionally refreshing the whitening for one night. Once you have the trays you can buy top up whitening products from Madoc Dental Care.
Will tooth whitening work on false teeth?
No, the whitening product will not work on porcelain crowns, implants or acrylic teeth. A thorough dental exam prior to whitening will identify if you have any of these and the dental professional will inform you.

Composite bonding can be placed into two categories depending on how much tooth is being covered. Full coverage is a composite veneer and partial coverage is commonly known as ‘edge’ bonding.
Both treatments are excellent non-invasive ways to achieve that smile you have always wanted. Generally the treatments involve no tooth cutting, no injections and is all done in one visit. Combined with a course of teeth whitening, you really can achieve an incredible result.
