Restorative dental treatments at Sheen Dental
If you are dealing with a tooth or teeth that have either been chipped, broken or weakened by tooth decay or accident, one dental treatment option which may be advised by one of our dentists is a crown.
Also commonly known as a cap, a crown is used to restore teeth that are either broken or damaged and can be made of either porcelain, gold or a mixture of these materials. Firstly our dentist Richmond will take an impression of the damaged tooth which is then sent to the dental laboratory in order for the crown to be made. The crown will be made so that not only will it fit precisely over the tooth that has been damaged, but also to match the remaining teeth, to ensure it looks as natural as possible. Once the crown has been made, the tooth is then prepared and our dentist will fit the crown securely on top.
One of the main benefits of getting a crown is that it looks natural and undetectable when placed in a patient’s mouth. Once you have a crown, you are also able to eat and chew your favourite foods as normal.
Crowns also ensure that the remaining tooth structure is strengthened.
However a visit to see a dentist Richmond may not always be to repair a tooth which has been chipped or broken. Many individuals may also want to visit a dentist Richmond in order to improve the appearance of their teeth. This area of dentistry is referred to as cosmetic dentistry.

At our practice Sheen Dental, we offer dental treatments in cosmetic dentistry for those who want to improve their smile. Cosmetic dentistry focuses mainly on aesthetics, and the treatments offered work to make the most of your smile by improving the shape, size or colour of your teeth.
If you are considering cosmetic treatment to help you achieve a smile you desire, there are a number of dental treatment options that our dentist will be able to provide for you. If you are currently unhappy with the shade of your teeth and are looking for a brighter smile, you may want to try teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening at Sheen Dental
A popular cosmetic treatment, teeth whitening is a simple procedure which aims to lighten a patient’s teeth. There are two main types of teeth whitening treatments used with us; Zoom whitening and home whitening.
Prior to carrying out this treatment, your teeth will be assessed by our dentist in order to determine what type of staining you have.
In order to ensure that your teeth remain white following the treatment it is recommended that you maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing regularly to remove any plaque build-up and also using a whitening toothpaste at least once a week.
