Porcelain Crown West Sussex
Two of the most popular cosmetic restorations at Shoreham Dental are porcelain crowns and white fillings. Both of them restore function and form to decayed and damaged teeth, allowing you to eat, drink, and smile naturally again.
The porcelain crowns at our West Sussex practice are custom-made and natural-looking restorations that cover afflicted teeth, protecting them from further injury. Other benefits include:
- 1. Restoring full functionality to a weakened tooth
- 2. Improving the appearance of a tooth with a damaged surface
- 3. Protecting a dental implant
- 4. Supporting dental bridges
When used in crowns, porcelain is both attractive and natural in appearance, concealing past injuries and making your smile brilliant. The crowns are chemically bonded with your own enamel, resulting in a firm and secure hold.
When we fit you with a crown, your dentist will begin by using a camera from our Cerec 3D system to scan the affected tooth and send the resulting image to an in-office machine that creates your crown from a porcelain block in an hour. After a new extra minutes of preparation, your crown is ready to be placed! You won’t have to wear a temporary filling for a couple of weeks while waiting for a crown to come back from a lab.
With proper care and good oral hygiene practices, your crown can last from five to 15 years. Your dentist will show you how to get the most out of your new restoration, so that you can keep your smile intact and beautiful for years to come.

White Filling West Sussex
Also known as composite resin fillings, white fillings provide needed support while matching your own tooth colour. Although they are used more frequently on the front teeth, where people are most anxious about preserving a natural appearance, white fillings can also repair small and visible defects on back teeth.
When you receive white fillings at our West Sussex location, they can be prepared and placed in a single visit. Your dentist will remove the decayed portion of your tooth, gently clean it, and apply a bonding agent, followed by multiple layers of the tooth-coloured composite resin. The resin is then hardened with a special light and polished so that the filling looks and feels like your own enamel. You will be able to chew your favourite foods once again, bite down without pain, and show absolutely no sign that you’ve ever had a filling placed!
Other benefits of white fillings include:
- 1. Look exactly like your own natural teeth
- 2. Less likely to contribute to a tooth fracture than a metal filling
- 3. Less expensive than gold fillings
- 4. Restores proper function to the tooth
- 5.Protects your remaining tooth structure from further damage
