Artificial Tooth Replacements

Sometimes called the ‘architects of the smile,’ prosthodontists are highly trained specialists with a unique understanding of all the elements that go into a beautiful, functional and natural-looking smile. This does not just concern the teeth but also the gums, lips, and facial features.

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Stabilise your smile
  • Restore damaged teeth

What are Prosthodontics?

Mimic Natural Teeth

As their name implies – taken from the words prosthesis, meaning addition or attachment – these dentists plan and carry out procedures related to the replacement of natural teeth, in part or in full, with biocompatible substitutes.

Prosthodontic treatments include:

Quick contact

Treatment options explained

  • Wafer-thin shells of ceramic material used to cover the front surfaces of teeth.
  • These are bonded to teeth prepared by having a small amount of enamel removed so as not to appear too bulky.
  • Long-lasting veneers can change teeth’ size, shape or colour and even close small gaps between them.

Porcelain Ceramic Bonded-Crowns:

  • Artificial covers, sometimes called ‘caps, ’ replace the entire visible surface of a tooth above the gum line.
  • These ceramic crowns are cemented to a prepared tooth with intact roots.
  • They are often needed after a root canal procedure or to repair fractured, broken or misshapen teeth.

E-max Crown:

  • A type of all-ceramic crown made from disilicate lithium material is known for its excellent strength and appealing aesthetics as a restorative crown material.

Zirconia Crown:

  • Another type of ceramic crown, Zirconia crowns, is extremely durable and matches the look of natural teeth well. Zirconia crowns are made from zirconium, a metal with similar properties to titanium.
  • It makes a good choice for dental material because it is chemically unreactive.

Inlays Are Used Instead Of Fillings To Replace A Small Amount Of Tooth Structure Loss Due To Decay.

Like fillings, inlays fit inside the tooth.

  • They are made of tooth-coloured material such as ceramic/porcelain or special dental composite. Defective or unsightly fillings can be replaced by tooth-coloured inlays and bonded to the tooth. This bonding process can improve the strength of the tooth and help seal the inlay to the tooth.
  • Onlays also fit inside the tooth but extend onto the chewing surface of a back tooth to replace one or more cusps.

Replace Missing Teeth

This method is today’s gold standard when replacing an entire tooth (roots and crown). Implants consist of a titanium metal post implanted in the jaw during a minor surgical procedure.

This screw-like post becomes fused with the jaw bone, providing a solid anchorage for a lifelike crown. Implants can replace single or multiple teeth or support other types of dental restorations, such as dental bridges or dentures.

Traditional Devices

Dentures are available in many forms, including full, partial, and implant-supported varieties.

They can improve the aesthetics and functionality of an individual who is missing teeth—particularly when the dentures are manufactured to a high standard of workmanship and fitted correctly in the mouth.

I've been receiving orthodontic treatment for about a year now with Dr. Ines and she's a wonderful mixture of highly skilled and professional, very thorough, and gentle in her approach. She is also super personable and I always look forward to my monthly appointments with her. She's made such a big improvement to my teeth and I'm very happy with my treatment so far -- I highly recommend Dr. Ines. I've also had other treatments with Maida Smiles and always had a great experience, especially with my wisdom teeth removal (by Dr. Pedro) that went very smoothly without any issues. The team's treatment coordinator/dentist nurse Cinthia is also always super kind and helpful if you have any questions or want to understand treatments.

I had the lovely Dr Shankar for a 4 month Invisalign treatment. I mainly had overcrowding that needed sorting out after having had braces as a teenager and not wearing my retainer. Dr Shankar was delightful and has a lovely energy about him that made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He explained processes well and also gave good advice to help me make informed decisions. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone in the Maida Vale area!

I had 2 wisdom teeth (on the same side) removed by Dr Pedro. I had a much better experience than I expected. One month later, I have completely recovered without any complications. Absolutely recommend!

I was recommended to start my treatment at the clinic and I couldn't be more pleased. It has been 6 months since I put my braces on and I am being followed by Dr. Ines and Dr. Cíntia. I can already see great changes and can't wait for the final result. Excellent professionals. The whole environment is very calm which makes you comfortable. 100% recommend Maida Smiles Clinic.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I brought my eldest daughter to Dr Ines do Carmo for orthodontic treatment. Ines has been brilliant throughout the treatment; she is incredibly passionate about her work and this is reflected in her skilled perfectionism and the amazing results she achieves for her patients. From the start, Ines’ warm and friendly manner succeeded in putting my apprehensive daughter at ease. She was also forthcoming and thorough in her explanations of the treatment, and happy to share her extensive knowledge. My daughter now has an even lovelier smile thanks to Ines. I highly recommend her and will be bringing my younger children to her for their orthodontic treatment.

It is my good fortune to have found Dra inês at Maida Smiles Clinic and to have her as my orthodontist. My complex orthodontic treatment, as an adult, defies all laws of physics, but Dra Inês has the most amazing professional expertise and compassion to help and change lives, and she is helping me massively. In each consultation, Dra Inês moves one-step forward to improve my bite, my oral health in general and my smile! I will be forever grateful to Dra Inês for her outstanding care, professionalism and support she provides in each visit, in such a caring and friendly way. I warmly recommend Dra Inês and Maida Smiles Clinic to anyone who os considering orthodontics.

We were on a short trip to London and my wife's implant got loose. We called Maida Smiles and they immediately saw her. They kindly sorted the issue out and my wife was extremely satisfied with the kind, friendly and professional service. Thanks Dr Pedro.

I can’t thank enough Dr Pedro Gutierres and Maida Smiles’ team for guiding me through a multiple teeth extraction operation I had at the clinic recently. I’m a very anxious patient and everyone at Maida Smiles went above and beyond to accommodate my questions, asks and concerns. The operation itself was painless and positively uneventful, healing was quick and after-care second to none. Never thought I’d say this to myself but I’m looking forward to my next dentist appointment at Maida Smiles.
