At Coulthard Sullivan, we offer a full range of general family dental care. We welcome family attendance for regular Check-Ups
There is clear evidence of the benefits to dental and general health of regular attendance. We recommend routine oral heath checks according to need which allows us to develop preventative care and advice.
Catering to each individual personally, our experienced team will put your family members at ease in a relaxed and professional environment, providing help with all aspects of oral health. We will routinely provide proven modern, gentle and preventative treatments for children at each visit and provide a full range of general dental care for all of your family.
We are a private dental practice, utilising our NHS contract for the care provision of our younger patients.
These are tooth-coloured fillings, shade matched to your teeth.
These are silver coloured fillings.
Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal treatment (RCT) is needed when the pulp cavity and root canal become infected and needs to be removed. It can be an alternative to removal of the tooth. The infected pulp cavity tissue can be caused by bacteria that live in the mouth and have managed to make their way into your tooth, either by:
- Tooth decay
- Repeated dental treatment on tooth
- Leaky fillings
- Deep cracks in the tooth
- Dental Trauma
Inlays and Onlays
An inlay is a small, laboratory-made, filling that fits into the biting surface of a tooth, while an onlay covers a larger area of the tooth, and is better suited to larger cavities. This treatment is provided over 2 visits, the initial visit is when the tooth is prepared for the restoration and the impression is sent to our dental technicians who will produce your restoration for your second visit when we can cement it into place. You will be provided with a temporary restoration between visits.
Inlays and onlays can be made from white filling material (composite), gold or porcelain.
Crowns are designed to cover the whole tooth. They are constructed in a lab and usually take 2 visits.
There are multiple materials for crowns including porcelain and gold.
A crown can be treatment of choice for:
- They are an ideal way to repair teeth that have been broken or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling
- They can be used to improve the appearance of a tooth, if the tooth has discoloured due to trauma or a discoloured filling
- You may have had a root canal treatment and need a crown to protect what is left of the tooth
- It may be used to hold a bridge or denture in place.
These are provided to replace a missing tooth and are constructed in a lab.
An adhesive bridge is an artificial tooth that has one or two ‘wings’ that are bonded to the back of the supporting adjacent tooth/teeth.
None or very little tooth is removed, making this sort of bridge very conservative treatment
Alternatively, a conventional bridge may be necessary, the artificial tooth (replacing the missing tooth) is connected to the adjacent teeth that have been crowned.
A denture is a removable prosthesis used to replace missing teeth.
Dentures can be made as a temporary solution to missing teeth prior to embarking on more complex treatment. We also offer permanent dentures.
Commonly referred to as ‘false teeth’, a denture is usually made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal. A partial denture is fitted to replace some missing teeth whilst a complete denture is indicated when all natural teeth are missing. A good set of dentures helps you to eat, speak, function, and often improves a person’s appearance.
