Our case of the month for May is Sarah. When Sarah came in to see us she felt embarrassed to smile and was not enjoying her food as she struggled to chew. This had a direct impact on her nutrition and overall health. 

Dr Huson's treatment plan for Sarah was dental bridges. We had to replace her old dental bridges with new ones. All our treatments including our dental bridges are internationally recognised and meet European standards. We offer the highest quality saving you time and money with no replacements required for the future. 

A big advantage of Sarah having her work done at Silver Oaks Dental Clinic was that it was done in less than a week. With our in house lab it was easy to make the necessary adjustments so that Sarah left here extremely happy with the end result. 

The other huge advantage is that our laboratory 'artist' Costa makes sure that it looks as natural as possible and will adapt the dental bridges to match your face, shape, and age.

We encourage our clients to chat to Costa and Dr Huson about their personal requirements with regards to the aesthetics of their treatment.  

The other advantages of having dental bridges done with Silver Oaks Dental Clinic are the following: 

  • It prevents your remaining teeth from shifting which can cause a problem in your bite.
  • It reduces the risk of bone loss thus maintaining the structures of your face.
  • The bridges are permanently fixed thus preventing them from moving around like dentures.
Bridges are not the treatment option for all patients. Dr Huson will need to analyse your teeth and suggest a treatment plan to your specification.

Types of Dental Implants

Which is the best manufacturer for Dental Implants?

Many patients have asked the question is one manufacturer better than the other for Dental Implants.

There are three factors to consider when deciding which Implant manufacturer you should go with. Firstly, you have to look at the grade of titanium being used. All our Dental Implants meet international standards. We offer the highest quality in Dental Implants at the best possible price. You can choose from three reputable long standing companies in the industry once you receive a quote from us i.e. Straumann, Nobel Biocare and MIS CI. Different manufacturers make very different implants for various clinical conditions. Some are short and fat to go in the bone near a sinus. Some are narrow to fit between front teeth. Some integrate very quickly. Dr Huson will decide the best Dental Implants to fit your case. It is important to use a long standing manufacturer should anything go wrong the parts will be easily accessible. The second fact that influences the success of your dental implants is the surgeon placing the Implants. Dr Huson has over 20 years of experience and worked under world renowned celebrity dentist Dr Joe Oliver in the Harley Street Region of London, United Kingdom (where celebrities get their dental treatments done) We have had tremendous success at Silver Oaks Dental Clinic with placing Dental Implants. The third factor that will more likely make your procedure a success is having your specialist use the latest technology and the proper planning and placement of Implants in order to deal with complex Dental Implant procedures.

Dental Veneers Pros and Cons

Dental Veneers Pros 

Dental Veneers Pros and Cons

Dental veneers is an excellent way to get rid of gaps, straighten and whiten your teeth all in one go. It can change your life and increase your confidence. As the saying goes the more you smile the more receptive you are to attracting a mate or smiling activates the brain chemicals making you more happy, however you’ll need to carefully weigh the pros and cons of the procedures before you decide to get them. Here are various factors to think about and discuss with your dentist.
Dental veneers are thin pieces of tooth-colored porcelain cemented to the front surfaces of your natural teeth, and are an easy way to address a variety of physical and aesthetic problems. Because they're also permanent, however, you'll need to carefully weigh the pros and cons of the procedure before you decide to get them.

Pro #1: Easily Whiten Your Smile

Years of drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes or eating highly pigmented foods eventually take their toll on your teeth, turning them an unattractive shade of yellow or brown. Stained enamel can be bleached at home or by your dentist, but it can become stained again. If you're looking for an easier way to whiten your smile for good, dental veneers may be a good fit for you. Veneers are largely stain-resistant, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), so you won't have to worry about discoloration or needing to have your veneers whitened.

Pro #2: Fix Gaps and Straightens Teeth

These problems can sometimes be helped with veneers as well. Veneers are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth – so although they don't change their positions, they do camouflage minor orthodontic problems once they're applied. Your natural teeth may still be gapped or crooked, but nobody will know aside from you and your dentist.
It's important to note that veneers can't always replace orthodontic treatment, and your dentist may refer you to an orthodontist instead of placing veneers.

Pro #3: Replace Damaged Enamel

Enamel is strong, but not indestructible. Your enamel may still be worn down from overzealous tooth brushing or eaten away by highly acidic foods and drinks. The stomach acid associated with acid reflux disease can also damage your enamel. This can become a cause for concern, because lost enamel doesn't grow back. Fortunately, it can be replaced. Veneers are an excellent treatment for teeth with enamel abrasion or enamel erosion, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and are aesthetically pleasing at the same time.

Dental Veneers Cons 

Con #1: Irreversible Procedure

Veneers are considered permanent because your dentist needs to change the structure of your natural teeth to properly place them. In this way, the outer layer of your enamel may be removed to make room.
Dental veneers are an excellent way to hide discolored, crooked or damaged teeth, but it's important to weigh the pros and cons that come with the territory before getting them. Make an appointment with your dentist to find out if dental veneers are a fitting solution for you.
