Existing crowns, veneers and fillings will not whiten at all, so if you have any of these in areas where your new whiter smile is visible these may need changing to match the new colour of your teeth. Tooth whitening is often an excellent way of solving the problem of existing crowns or veneers which look whiter than the rest of your teeth. Teeth darken with age and this cannot be prevented.
To answer this question fully we must examine your teeth, but in most cases the answer is yes. The health of your gums is very important for a beautiful long lasting smile, so we will normally make appointments for you to see one of our hygienists.
The rest is really up to you, we can provide simple things like an individual white filling, up to implants and bridges. Like everything in life it is about time and money, but as a first step come and see us for a consultation where we can discuss your needs.
This is a very common concern among our clients, but rest assured that modern dentistry really has advanced a great deal. The local anaesthetics in use today give complete control over sensitivity and pain. We always apply an anaesthetic gel to your gums before we give any you any injection, and this reduces feeling even further. Sensitivity is often treated by nothing more than our recommendation to use a particular type of desensitizing toothpaste. We have an extensive range of dental products available in our centre, so if you are concerned call in first and ask what Toothpaste we recommend for sensitive teeth.
We believe we can. At your first visit we do not try to do any treatment, we like to spend some time getting to know each other. You are naturally going to put your trust in what we can do for you, and so it is important to build up a good relationship first. We will spend as long as you like discussing the different options available to you, and we normally find that you can overcome any concerns you may have had in the beginning. We will do any treatment you need at the pace you wish to go which gives you the control over how we do thingS.
This again is a common concern among many of our clients and it is a very easy matter to give you total re assurance that at every stage of every procedure we pay great attention to cross infection control. As a matter of routine disposable gloves are worn, and changed for every patient. Regulations change continuously within dentistry as new de-contamination procedures are implemented. At the current time the recent guidelines from the Department of Health are in a document called HTM 01-05 in this the term “best practice” is the aim for all dental practices. To achieve best practice a dental centre should have a separate De-contamination room where all instrument de-contamination takes place. In 2010 we built a completely new de contamination suite for this purpose. To ensure complete sterilization any items used in our practice go through a three stage sterilization process ensuring safety at all times. Many items are simply disposable, and discarded after one use. Headrests and handles are typically covered in disposable polythene, which is changed between patients. At all stages of your visit we aim for the highest standards of cross infection control,
We take pride in the services we can offer, and all the dentists working in our dental centre are committed to lifelong learning. All of us regularly spend time attending further education courses, it is only by doing this that we are continually increasing our knowledge of techniques and materials to deliver the service that our clients ask for.
We are all committed to continuing education and regularly give talks to other groups of dentists about new techniques.
