Nothing makes you feel better than clear, smooth, bright skin, so why not treat yourself to a chemical peel in the run-up to autumn? If the summer months have taken their toll on your complexion and you’re eager to treat your skin to some much-needed TLC, a chemical peel could be just the ticket. A chemical peel is a facial treatment, which involves applying a thin layer of chemical exfoliant onto the skin surface to remove dead skin cells, combat signs of ageing and give the skin a beautiful, radiant glow. We use medium strength peels, which are suitable for all skin types and treatment can be beneficial for those with pigmentation, superficial lesions and blemishes and the treatment is also suitable for those who have acne. Treatment includes four sessions and before the first peel is applied, we will ask you to treat your skin at home with a primer for two weeks. You will then have one session every week and afterwards, your skin will look and feel fresh and youthful. After treatment, we recommend using post-peel cream and intensive sun block. In addition to chemical peels, we also offer an extensive range of skincare products, which are designed to reduce the visibility of signs of ageing. If you would like to find out more about skin peels or you are interested in treatment and you would like to find out if you are a good candidate for this anti-ageing therapy, why not give our friendly receptionists a call today and arrange an appointment at a time that is convenient to you? We are fortunate to have a very experienced facial aesthetics practitioner, Monica Berrange, in our team, so we promise that you’re in good hands!

We offer advanced dental implants solutions to replace missing teeth in a single day. If you thought you had to wait days, even months, for new teeth, think again! With our incredible range of treatments, we can restore your smile and your confidence in a single session.
We offer three innovative same-day implant treatments, including: All-on-4, Implant-supported bridges and implant-retained dentures.
All-on-4 is a same-day implant treatment, which has revolutionised tooth replacement treatment. This system uses just four implants to support a full arch of new teeth and the entire process can be completed in one day. Two of the implants are placed at the front of the mouth, with the other two sitting at the back; the back implants are placed at 45 degree angles, while the front implants are placed at 90 degree angles. The position of the implants assures maximum stability for the new teeth. With All-on-4, you can enjoy the same level of functionality as you could with healthy natural teeth and you can smile with confidence.
Implant-retained dentures are dentures that are stabilised by dental implants; they provide a more secure alternative to traditional dentures and prevent slipping and sliding. Implants support the denture, enabling you to enjoy enhanced tooth function, increasing the range of foods available to you and giving you a natural looking, attractive smile. You can also enjoy peace of mind that your dentures won’t become loose or cause irritation and soreness.
Dental bridges are a popular solution for missing teeth and we are able to provide implants to stabilise the bridge to provide you with better aesthetics and tooth function. It usually takes 6-8 implants to secure the bridge and we can make the bridge using porcelain for a seamless look.
It’s a new year and many of us have made resolutions to feel happier, healthier and more confident. If you’re determined to look and feel your best in 2015, why not try Botox? Botox is a popular non-invasive solution for ageing skin and it helps to soften the appearance of wrinkles, facial folds and fine lines. This quick and convenient treatment can help to turn back the clock and give your skin a new lease of life.
Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A; it has various uses within the fields of medicine and facial aesthetics and it has become a very popular means of reducing the visibility of wrinkles. Botox is injected into the skin and it helps to soften the complexion and smooth out wrinkles by causing the facial muscles to relax. The muscles cease contracting because Botox blocks nerve signals to them.
Botox can be used in various zones on the face and you can choose to have a single area or multiple areas treated. Common problem areas include the forehead, the skin around the eyes and the area between the nose and mouth.
One of the most appealing aspects of Botox treatment is the simplicity of treatment, as sessions only take 15-30 minutes and involves just a few injections. We inject Botox using an ultra-fine needle, which helps to minimise discomfort. Most patients do not require any anaesthetic and treatment is over very quickly. After treatment, the results will start to become visible within 24-48 hours. There is no recovery time required and you can head back to work or go home without any worries about struggling with pain. In some cases, there may be very mild localised swelling or bruising, but this will subside quickly.
Botox treatment is a temporary anti-ageing treatment; the results last up to 6 months and you can choose whether to continue treatment in the future.
At Advance Dental, one of our main priorities is to prevent gum disease, the leading cause of adult tooth loss in the UK. Gum disease is a common oral disease, which causes the gums to become sore and swollen; if mild gum disease is left untreated, it becomes more advanced and can progress to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease causes permanent damage to the bone tissue, which supports the teeth and gums; eventually, the teeth will come loose in their sockets and fall out. One of the most important things when it comes to gum disease is being able to spot the warning signs; if you are able to see a dentist when you first start noticing symptoms, this will vastly improve the chances of successful treatment, as gum disease becomes more severe with time. The symptoms of gum disease include inflammation, tenderness and soreness and bleeding from the gums, which is usually most noticeable when you brush your teeth. Mild gum disease, also known as gingivitis, is usually treated with good oral hygiene and hygiene treatments, such as scale and polish; severe gum disease is much harder to treat and often involves a lengthy treatment process, which requires frequent sessions with the dentist and dental hygienist. At Advance Dental, we strongly believe that prevention is better than cure and we advise all our patients to keep up to date with routine check-ups, take time to practise good oral hygiene at home and restrict the amount of sugary and acidic foods and drinks they consume. We also highly recommend dental hygiene services; out expert dental hygienists provide treatments, which not only keep harmful bacteria at bay, but also make the teeth look shiny, white and bright. If you’ve noticed that your gums are swollen or you see blood when you brush your teeth or you’ve due for a check-up, call now and book your appointment.
If you thought orthodontic treatment was about coping with unsightly, painful braces for months on end, think again! Invisalign is a clear aligner system, which has revolutionised the way people undergo orthodontic treatment. With this fast, effective system, we can straighten the teeth quickly, comfortably and discreetly.Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment, which uses a set of individually designed aligners to move the teeth. These aligners are made from high-grade plastic, which is completely transparent, meaning that it is virtually impossible to see them when they are in the mouth.The treatment process involves wearing each aligner for 2 weeks; each patient receives a set of aligners, which work in order. The aligners should be in place for at least 21 hours per day, but they are removable, so you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth.Invisalign provides a solution for a range of common orthodontic issues, from crowding and spaces between the teeth, to crooked teeth and abnormalities with the bite. It is also suitable for patients of all ages and is a very popular choice for adult patients.Invisalign is suitable for most patients, but it may not always be the best solution. When you have your consultation, our expert dentists will have a thorough look at your teeth and analyse your bite to ascertain your orthodontic needs; once they have the relevant information, they can discuss treatment options with you and go through the different systems. You can ask any questions and your dentist can tailor their advice to suit any preferences you have; for example, if you want a treatment that works very quickly or you would rather have a discreet brace.

Cerec is one of the most advanced forms of technology available to dentists today and we are delighted to be able to offer our patients same-day tooth restoration treatment thanks to this amazing invention. Cerec technology takes care of the entire process of creating a new restoration and it allows us to develop new restorations on-site, rather than sending impressions away to a dental lab and relying on temporary restorations. With Cerec, we can make new veneers, onlays and inlays and crowns at the surgery and fit them in a single treatment session. Cerec allows us to design new restorations using images o the teeth taken by a camera; these images are sent to the on-site milling machine, where the magic happens and the custom-made restoration appears seconds later. Once the restoration is ready, we can fit it and you can enjoy your new and improved tooth. Cerec offers our dentists and our patients an array of benefits. The treatment duration is greatly reduced and patients don’t have to worry about booking multiple appointments; we can also fit the permanent restoration straightaway so we don’t need to waste time with temporary restorations. We also use cameras to capture images of the teeth to create the design for the new restoration, rather than moulding dental putty, which can be messy and a little uncomfortable for patients, especially those with a sensitive gag reflex. Cerec also affords a more accurate and streamline process and dentists have more control over the finished product. If you’d like to find out more about Cerec, our commitment to new technology or restorative treatment at Advance Dental Care, call us now and book an appointment.
Dental veneers are a hugely popular cosmetic dental treatment, which have helped thousands of people all over the world to realise their dreams of a flawless white smile. At Advance Dental we are delighted to be able to offer our clients Lumineers, amazing veneers made by Cerinate. These veneers are not your ordinary veneers; they are made from a patented ceramic material, which is stronger than porcelain and has a beautiful glossy sheen. With Lumineers, you can cover all kinds of problems, from chipped and worn teeth to unsightly brown stains and your smile will look incredible. Lumineers are very thin and light, but they also pack a punch and they are up to twice as strong as some other types of veneer. In addition to porcelain veneers and Lumineers, you can also get veneers made from composite. Dental composite is a very versatile dental material, which is often used to fill cavities (known as white fillings) and carry out repairs to chipped and worn teeth, but it can also be used to create veneers. Composite veneers are strong and hard-wearing and they are a more affordable alternative to porcelain; however, they don’t quite have the same aesthetic appeal as Lumineers or other types of ceramic material. With Lumineers, the teeth look bright and white, yet the smile looks healthy and natural and you can also enjoy the fact that your veneers are extremely durable. Lumineers are also stain-resistant, so your smile should look stunning for many years to come. Veneer treatment is an excellent solution for anyone who is searching for a way to make their smile look more attractive and it is particularly effective for people who have existing flaws, although many people choose to have veneers to simply give their smile more sparkle and inject some glamour.
