Chesterfield Bonding

Tooth bonding, or dental bonding, is one of the simplest cosmetic treatments available.

Chesterfield Deep Cleaning

The rise of dental implants over the past 10-15 years has been phenomenal.

Chesterfield Inlays and Onlays

In some cases a tooth is too badly damaged to support a dental filling, but isn’t sufficiently damaged to need a dental crown. In this case Dr Akinwande may talk to you about inlays and onlays. It’s a process that involves placing a protective layer either ‘in’ or ‘on‘ the surface of the tooth. They…

Chesterfield PFM Restorations

PFM or porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations have been a restorative dentistry standard for more than 30 years and not without good reason. They’re versatile, they’re resilient, and above all they’re aesthetic, and it’s this perfect balance of all three that has made them a favorite among both dentists and patients. So what exactly are they? PFM restorations…

Chesterfield Provisional Restorations

Sometimes during complex restorative dental procedures patients will be given temporary or provisional restorations while they await their permanent prosthetic. This serves several purposes. Firstly – it allows patients to ‘trial their smile’ in order to see how their restorations will feel. So any adjustments can be made at this point, BEFORE any permanent restorations are…

Chesterfield Root Canals

Many people associate root canals with discomfort and pain. However this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Chesterfield Tooth Extractions

If there’s one procedure that most patients are apprehensive about that’s tooth extraction. However as with most treatments thinking about what might happen is always far worse than the treatment itself. Although Dr Akinwande and the team make every effort to try and preserve natural teeth, extraction is sometimes necessary for badly decayed, painful, damaged,…

Chesterfield Veneers and Laminates

Just like dental bonding, veneers (or laminates as they’re sometimes called) are a restorative cosmetic procedure used to repair cracks, blemishes, and fractures that appear on the tooth. However that’s where the similarities end. While cosmetic dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin directly onto the affected area, veneers or laminates are super thin shells…
