If missing teeth have been holding you back and you’ve been dreaming of a beautiful smile for as long as you can remember, now is the time to consider dental implant treatment. Dental implants are a modern solution for tooth loss and they can transform your smile, as well as your confidence. Implants are actually designed to replace the root section of the missing tooth and they are connected to other restorations in order to complete the restoration. The implants are made from titanium and they look similar to small screws. The implant is placed inside an opening in the jawbone and it is left there to integrate into the tissue. This process is called osseointegration and it enables the implant to provide support for the new restoration. One of the best things about dental implants is their versatility; they are compatible with different types of tooth restoration and this means that they are suitable for patients of all ages with varying dental needs. Whether you’ve lost a single tooth playing sport or you’ve been missing multiple teeth for several years, implants can help. Once an implant has settled into the jawbone, it can then be attached to a crown, denture or dental bridge and your tooth or teeth will look completely natural. You will also be able to enjoy the same level of functionality as you would if you had a full set of healthy natural teeth. With implants, tasks, which used to be troublesome, such as public speaking or eating out, become easy and hassle-free and you can enjoy greater confidence when you smile. Implants are a long-term solution and they are built to last and they are also easy to look after and they help to reduce the risk of bone loss in the jaw joint. If you like the sound of our incredible implants, why not call us and arrange a consultation to find out more and see if you are a good match for dental implants in Essex?

If you long for a set of flawless pearly whites, allow us to introduce you to Lumineers. These amazing veneers are famed for producing stunning, natural looking smiles and they also offer strength and durability. Lumineers are veneers, which are made from a patented ceramic material; they are made by Cerinate. Lumineers have a beautiful iridescent finish and they are up to twice as strong as porcelain veneers, despite the fact that they are extremely thin. Lumineers are the same thickness as contact lenses and this means that they can often be bonded directly onto the teeth; usually, a thin layer of the tooth structure is removed to make space for new veneers, but with this treatment, the tooth remains intact. Lumineers are ideal for people who want amazing results with minimal hassle and no pan at all; they provide an effective solution for chipped, worn and stained teeth, as well as offering a means of achieving a perfect smile for those who want to add extra sparkle and radiance to their smile. Lumineers are different to porcelain and composite veneers because they are made from a patented form of ceramic, which offers natural aesthetics, as well as durability. These veneers are much thinner than other veneers, but they last longer and are more resistant to damage. Composite veneers are a very effective solution for damaged teeth and they can mae the smile look much more attractive, but they don’t offer the same aesthetics as porcelain and ceramic veneers. They are more affordable than porcelain dental veneers, but they may not last as long.One major advantage of Lumineers is that they can usually be fitted straight onto the tooth with minimal preparation; this reduces treatment time and also preserves the tooth structure. If you like the sound of Lumineers and you’re eager to learn more, call us today and book a consultation. Our Essex dentists will be happy to talk you through the process, outline the pros and cons and discuss treatment costs.
We are proud to offer a diverse range of treatments at Advance Dental, including facial aesthetics to enable you to compliment your stunning bright smile with youthful, radiant skin. Whether you long for smooth, clear skin or you’re looking for a non-surgical solution for fine lines or sagging skin, we can help. We offer Botox, a hugely popular facial aesthetic treatment, as well as fillers, which are designed to add volume and create more definition in the skin. Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which helps to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles on the face by causing the facial muscles to relax; it does this by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles, which prevent muscle contraction. Botox can be used to treat different areas of the face and is most commonly used to target fine lines on the forehead, around the eyes and between the nose and mouth. One of the most appealing things about Botox treatment is the simplicity of the process; you often hear people talking about lunch-time Botox in the press and this really is possible because treatment sessions take just 20 minutes and there’s no recovery time needed after treatment. We simply use a very thin needle to inject the Botox into the areas you want to address; these injections are painless and our aesthetic practitioner is highly experienced, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands and the results will be beautifully natural looking. The results of Botox treatment are temporary and usually start to fade after 3-6 months; at this point, you can decide whether or not to top-up your treatment. If wrinkles are getting you down or you dream of softer, brighter and younger looking skin, Botox could be the perfect solution; call now to find out more or book an appointment.

6 Month Smiles is one of our most popular orthodontic treatments and it’s easy to see why. This fast-acting, discreet treatment is the perfect solution for anyone who wants amazing aesthetics in record time! 6 Month Smiles is a fixed brace system, which works rapidly to create beautiful, straight teeth. This treatment is ideally suited to patients who have issues with the social 6, the front teeth, which are visible when you smile. By focusing only on the teeth that can be seen when you smile and using the latest, state of the art technology, treatment times are reduced considerably and patients are able to enjoy the results of their treatment much faster. Although 6 Month Smiles is a fixed brace treatment, there are major differences to traditional fixed braces; the braces are lighter and much more discreet and the technology makes treatment more comfortable, as well as much quicker. These braces have tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, so they are barely visible when you smile and treatment is targeted towards pressing issues with the front teeth. This means that patients who only need a small amount of movement and correction with their front teeth don’t have to undergo unnecessarily intensive treatment. We often recommend 6 Month Smiles for patients who want an amazing smile for a special event, such as a wedding or a graduation ceremony, as the treatment period is so short. After treatment, as is customary with all braces, patients are advised to wear retainers; this helps to prevent the teeth from moving and slipping out of position and ensures that your smile stays beautifully straight. If you’d like to find out more about 6 Month Smiles or book a consultation to see if you are a suitable candidate for treatment, call our friendly receptionists today.
Missing teeth don’t just affect the look of your smile, they can also have negative implications for your confidence and oral health, as well as making it difficult to eat and speak clearly. With dental implants, you can regain your beautiful smile and your confidence and you don’t have to worry about replacing implants or spending hours taking care of them. Dental implants are a relatively new discovery in the world of tooth replacement and they are fast becoming the treatment of choice for patients with missing teeth. Implants are very popular because they offer a long-term solution for tooth loss and they are also versatile, as they are compatible with a range of different restorations. A dental implant is a small screw-like device made from titanium, which is inserted into a socket in the jaw bone to become a substitute for the lost tooth root. Like a root, the implant integrates into the bone, becoming part of the jaw tissue and this creates amazing stability. Once the implant has completely integrated, it is then attached to a new restoration, which may be a crown, a dental bridge or a denture. As implants are secure in the jaw bone, they anchor the new tooth with the same level of support as a natural tooth root and this greatly enhances the performance and functionality of the tooth. With implants, you can do everything you used to do with your natural teeth and you also get to enjoy a stunning new smile. If you have a single missing tooth, a few lost teeth or even a full arch of missing teeth, implants could be just the treatment you’ve been searching for. Call us today to make an appointment to meet with our amazing dentists and find out more about dental implants.
When it comes to orthodontics, there are few treatments as impressive as the Inman Aligner. This amazing removable appliance is designed to move the teeth rapidly without exerting powerful painful forces and it could be just the solution you’ve been looking for if you have minor issues with your front teeth. Unlike traditional braces, this treatment consists of two parts: a coiled spring and a metal bar. These parts, which are located at the back and front of the front teeth respectively, produce forces, which create a squeezing action to push and pull the teeth in the right direction. The forces are gentle and the teeth move quickly with minimal pain. This treatment is not universal and it is ideally suited to patients who only need minor correction for issues that affect the teeth at the front of the mouth; it could be ideal for you if you have a gap between your front teeth or your front teeth are slightly crooked for example. We also recommend it for patients who have suffered relapse following previous orthodontic treatment. There are many advantages of the Inman Aligner, but the speed of treatment is perhaps the stand-out feature; the average treatment time is just 16 weeks, so your braces will be off before you know it. The aligner is also comfortable and it uses the latest technology to prevent pain and it’s removable, so you can continue with day to day life without making any adjustments to the way you eat or clean your teeth, for example. There is also a lower risk of oral health problems during treatment because you can take the brace out to rush your teeth; with fixed braces, it can be difficult to keep on top of oral hygiene, as food tends to become trapped in the brackets and wires and cleaning around them can take a little getting used to.

Many people are put off having braces because of lengthy treatment times, but how you would feel if we said we were able to offer an incredible system, which takes just 6 months to give you the smile of your dreams? With 6 Month Smiles, your dreams of a straight smile are just around the corner! This amazing fixed brace system is one of the fastest fixed appliance systems on the market and it offers all the advantages of fixed braces with the added bonus of a very short treatment period. Most braces take at least 12 months, so this really is a rapid solution. Six Month Smiles is able to work quickly because it employs the latest technology, including self-ligating memory wires, to speed up the movement of the teeth and it concentrates on the teeth that are located at the front of the mouth only. This means that you get the best aesthetics in the shortest time. Fixed braces provide greater support for the teeth than aligners and their success is not dependent on the patient following treatment instructions; the process is very simple and the results are excellent every time. This treatment is specifically designed for patients who have minor or moderate issues with the social 6, the teeth that are visible when you smile, and it is a great option for those who want results fast, including brides and grooms gearing up for their wedding and patients who are preparing for landmark birthdays, graduation ceremonies or important interviews. Aside from the speed, 6 Month Smiles also offers comfort and discreet aesthetics; unlike conventional fixed braces, these braces are made from clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, making them extremely subtle. If you’re looking for a speedy, painless orthodontic treatment, which really works, call us now and find out more about 6 Month Smiles.
