Same Day Restorations
If you have a cavity, the chances are you’ll need a filling – and fortunately getting a filling in Long Sutton, Spalding and Lincolnshire is not the trial it once was. With composite resin, or white, fillings, you no longer need to put up with the ‘shadowed smile’ effect caused by traditional amalgam fillings. At The Lane Ends Dental Practice, all our dentists are extremely experienced at fitting aesthetic tooth-coloured fillings. As well as looking completely natural, white fillings come with a number of benefits:
- Less drilling. Unlike metal fillings, the dentist doesn’t need to remove a large amount of the tooth to apply the composite resin mix.
- Quick to harden. Composite resin fillings only take seconds to cure, so you’ll be eating and drinking normally soon after.
- Strong. Because the composite material bonds directly to the existing tooth, it works to strengthen the overall structure.
- Repairable. Chips and cracks can be easily smoothed and damaged structure rebuilt using the composite resin filling.

What are porcelain veneers and how can they improve my smile??
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of tooth-shaped porcelain that are individually crafted to cover the fronts of teeth. They are very durable and will not stain, making them a very popular solution for those seeking to restore or enhance the beauty of their smile.
Veneers may be used to restore or correct the following dental conditions:
- Severely discolored or stained teeth
- Unwanted or uneven spaces
- Worn or chipped teeth
- Slight tooth crowding
- Misshapen teeth
- Teeth that are too small or large
Getting veneers usually requires two visits. Veneers are created from an impression (mold) of your teeth that is then sent to a professional dental laboratory where each veneer is custom-made (for shape and color) for your individual smile.
What can I do about stained or discoloured teeth??
Since teeth whitening has now become the number one aesthetic concern of many patients, there are many products and methods available to achieve a brighter smile. Professional teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel, and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Over-the-counter products are also available, but they are much less effective than professional treatments
As we age, the outer layer of tooth enamel wears away, eventually revealing a darker or yellow shade. The color of our teeth also comes from the inside of the tooth, which may become darker over time. Smoking, drinking coffee, tea, and wine may also contribute to tooth discoloration, making our teeth yellow and dull. Sometimes, teeth can become discolored from taking certain medications as a child, such as tetracycline. Excessive fluoridation (fluorosis) during tooth development can also cause teeth to become discolored.
It’s important to have your teeth evaluated by your dentist to determine if you’re a good candidate for bleaching. Occasionally, tetracycline and fluorosis stains are difficult to bleach and your dentist may offer other options, such as veneers or crowns to cover up such stains.
