New Year New You! 3 Treatments to Start 2019 in Style

A New Year is approaching, and what better time of year to treat yourself to a mini makeover. If you’re eager to start 2019 with a sensational smile, here are 3 brilliant treatments to consider:

Tooth whitening

Tooth whitening is a cosmetic treatment, which brightens up the smile by lightening the shade of the enamel. We use Enlighten tooth whitening to achieve incredible results, which last for several years. Enlighten treatment uses both home therapy and in-chair treatment, and takes a total of 15 days. For the first 14 days, you’ll wear bespoke whitening trays, which contain Enlighten bleaching agent, at home. This period will be followed by a 1-hour session in the dental chair, which will give your teeth that perfect winter sparkle.

Cosmetic braces

If you’ve decided that 2019 is the year to look and feel great, and you’re conscious of crooked, crowded or wonky teeth, now is the time to get in touch! We have some amazing orthodontic treatments on offer, and we can produce results in weeks, rather than months or years. Our treatment range includes Invisalign, the Inman Aligner, Quick Straight Teeth, and Six Month Smiles.

Veneers

Do you dream of a Hollywood style makeover? If so, veneers could be the ideal option for you. Veneers are wafer-thin shells of ceramic material, usually porcelain, which are applied to the surface of the natural teeth. Veneers are capable of turning stained, misshapen, worn and chipped teeth into a stunning new smile in just a couple of weeks.

If you’re keen to start 2019 with a beaming smile, why not get in touch and book a consultation today?

Walk in from a Winter Wonderland, Walk out with beautiful teeth

There’s no getting away from the fact that it’s chilly and bleak outside. As temperatures fall and the sun starts to set in the middle of the afternoon, what could be better than getting out of the cold and treating yourself to a brand new smile? If you’re looking for rapid results, we have some incredible treatments to tempt you this winter.

Cosmetic bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a brilliant treatment option for patients who have minor aesthetic flaws, such as chipped teeth, worn or uneven edges, misshapen teeth or gaps between the teeth. If you’ve chipped a tooth, you’ve got a tooth with a jagged edge, or you’ve got a couple of teeth that are a different size or shape to the rest, we can help! Bonding is a straightforward procedure, which involves using dental composite to reshape the teeth. Composite is a tooth-coloured material, which can be moulded to alter the shape of the teeth and carry out repairs. Once the composite is in the right place, we set it firm using a curing light. This treatment takes around an hour, there’s no pain involved, and you’ll notice an amazing difference straight away.

Tooth whitening

It may be dark and miserable outside, but that doesn’t mean that your smile can’t sparkle. With Enlighten teeth whitening, we can transform your teeth in just 2 weeks. Enlighten is a system that combines at-home and in-chair whitening to produce outstanding results. For the first 14 days, you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home. All you have to do is wear your custom-made Enlighten whitening trays for around 6 hours per day for 2 weeks. We will then arrange an appointment for you, and you’ll come and see us for your one-hour power whitening treatment. This will give your smile that extra glow.

If you’re looking for a simple, quick way to enjoy a beautiful smile this winter, why not contact us today?

Are Teeth Whitening Treatments or Veneers Better For Your Teeth?

If you’ve got your heart set on a perfect smile, you may be investigating cosmetic dental treatments, such as tooth whitening and veneers, but how do you decide which option is best for you? If you’re weighing up the pros and cons, we’re here to help!

Tooth whitening

Tooth whitening is a hugely popular cosmetic treatment, which is used to bring a healthy glow to your smile. Using bleaching agents, we can achieve amazing transformations in a short space of time with no pain and minimal hassle. We offer Enlighten professional whitening treatment, which lightens the colour of the enamel by several shades in just 2 weeks. Whitening is safe, it produces long-lasting results, and it’s a cheaper option than veneers.

Veneers

Veneers are very delicate, tooth-shaped shells, which are placed over the natural teeth to create a beautiful, flawless smile. Veneers can be used to brighten up the smile, but they can also address a host of other aesthetic issues, including chipped teeth, uneven and worn edges, misshapen teeth and gaps between the teeth. Veneers don’t actually rectify these problems, they simply provide a mask for them. Veneers offer long-lasting results, and they can do a lot more than just whitening the smile, but they are more expensive and treatment is more complex.

If you have any questions about tooth whitening or veneers, and you’d like more information or advice about choosing which treatment is best for you, why not give us a call and organise a consultation? We can explore both options, talk to you about the processes in more detail, and help you decide which avenue to pursue.

Nothing makes you look or feel better than a bright, beautiful smile. If your teeth could do with a touch of sparkle this spring/summer, why not treat yourself to a trip to the dentist? Here are 3 simple ways we can make your smile shine.

  1. Tooth whitening: tooth whitening is a hugely popular cosmetic dental treatment, which can transform the appearance of the smile.

3 Ways Advance Dental Clinic Can Repair a Broken Tooth

If you’ve got a broken tooth, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We have a range of techniques and treatments we can use to patch you up and put a smile back on your face. Here are 3 ways we can repair a broken tooth:

  1. Crown: if your tooth is broken, we may recommend placing a crown over the top of the existing tooth structure. A crown is a restoration, which is designed to strengthen an infected, decayed or damaged tooth. Crowns can be made from various materials, but most patients prefer to opt for ceramic crowns, as they produce very natural and lifelike results. We can fit same-day crowns using Cerec or place a temporary crown, which can be replaced with a bespoke crown a couple of weeks later.
  2. Cosmetic bonding: cosmetic bonding is a very effective and versatile aesthetic treatment, which can be used to build up tooth surfaces that have been worn and repair chipped and broken teeth. In this case, your dentist will use composite material to repair the tooth. Composite is tooth-coloured and at room temperature, it has a putty-like consistency. Once the composite material has been applied to the tooth, it is set using a specific curing light. This treatment is quick and painless.
  3. Root canal treatment: if the tooth is badly broken and the nerves are exposed, root canal treatment may be recommended. Root canal therapy is a procedure used to treat and prevent infection when the pulp tissue, the living part of the tooth, is at risk. This procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic and it is often followed by placing a new crown on the tooth.

If you have a broken tooth, don’t suffer in silence! We are here to help. Call and book an appointment today.

How Advance Dental Clinic Can Provide Fillings that Look like Natural Teeth

If you need a filling, it doesn’t have to detract from the beauty of your smile. At Advance Dental Clinic, we can provide fillings that blend in perfectly with your natural teeth.

About fillings

If you have a cavity, a hole in the tooth, you may be advised to have a filling. Fillings are designed to fill cavities and they help to protect the tooth. By filling the hole, the risk of bacteria spreading to other parts of the tooth is reduced, and the structure of the tooth will become stronger. There are various choices when it comes to materials used for fillings. In years gone by, mercury amalgam fillings were a popular choice, but today, white fillings, are much more commonplace.

White fillings are made from dental composite, which is combined with resins. Composite is available in a range of tooth-coloured shades, so it is possible to find a colour that matches your natural tooth shade almost exactly. When you have a white filling, it’s impossible to spot the filling when you smile. White fillings are also safe than amalgam fillings and they are better for the environment.

Does having a filling hurt?

If you need a filling, you may be apprehensive about having treatment, but don’t worry. Before the tooth is filled, your dentist will numb the tooth, so you won’t feel any pain. Once the tooth is nub, your dentist will remove decayed tissue from the cavity before adding bonding material and pouring the composite in. When the filling material is in place, it will be set using a curing light and when it’s hard, your dentist will trim it to fit the cavity perfectly. The procedure doesn’t last long and you shouldn’t experience any pain at all.
