Spring 2014 Newsletter Winners @ The Dentistry Practice News Awards 2013 Practice News Dental Implants Thorpe Dental Group have, been providing Dental Implants at their Woodthorpe site for a number of years. Implant dentists, Kris Leeson and Barbie Devall are dedicated to providing the highest quality of service, using the latest technology including an onsite CT scanner to assist in case planning What are dental implants? Dental implants are a permanent way of replacing missing teeth. Implants are small titanium screws which are placed in the jaw bone. They can then be used to attach different restorations, such as crowns, bridges or dentures. Implants can look, feel and work just like natural teeth. Can everyone have dental implants? Anyone who has missing teeth can be considered for dental implants. A consultation with your implant dentist will be required to assess your suitability for implant placement. How long does the treatment take? The complexity of the treatment required will determine the treatment time, however simple cases can often be completed within 3-6 months. How much do dental implants cost? Each implant case is individual and as such costs vary. Implants have often been proven to be more cost effective in the long term than other methods of tooth replacement which often require costly adjustments or replacement. Our initial consultation fee is from £105 (including x-rays) Crowns and veneers while you wait We are pleased to announce that on the 6th December 2013 Dr Kris Leeson and his team at Thorpe Dental Group were officially crowned Best Team and Best Practice North East at the prestigious Dentistry Awards in Leicester. What is CEREC? CEREC is a dental restoration that allows dental practitioners to produce ceramic dental restorations using 3D photography. CEREC allows the dental practitioner to produce a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay within an hour- a procedure that would normally take up to two weeks! What Is Six Month Smiles Short Term Orthodontic Treatment? Six Month Smiles® short term orthodontic treatment is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. Average treatment times of only six months Six Month Smiles clear brackets and tooth coloured wires are barely visible Use of braces has shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result Low forces and short overall orthodontic treatment times Six Month Smiles is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers. How does it work? Instead of the traditional method of using dental putty to create an impression, CEREC creates a 3D model of the tooth using a highly sensitive camera. Once this has been created, it is sent to an onsite milling machine which fabricates the tooth from a ceramic block- a process which takes anywhere form 6-30 minutes. Ceramic blocks come in a wide range of shades and will be selected to match the colour of the surrounding teeth What are the benefits of CEREC? Protects and preserves your own tooth's structural integrity Ceramics are bio-compatible Only one appointment Perfect looks, quality and comfort Long lasting and durable Inman Aligners Promo Price of £999 (normally £1800) If you fancy a change to your smile, why not book a consultation with Dr Gwyneth Morris at our Bishopthorpe or Copmanthorpe practice to see if you are suitable.
