Tooth Whitening
 
Teeth will inevitably change colour with age. Together with the effects of diet and lifestyle, over time they will appear stained, darkened or yellow, taking people further and further away from their ideal smile.
 
Advances in whitening technology have made healthier-looking teeth a possibility for the masses rather than the elite. The procedure is quick and easy, and the benefits of having a whitening treatment can last up to 3 years (depending on the individual).
How Does It Work?
 
If you choose an at-home whitening treatment following your consultation, your dentist can create a custom-made tray as part of an application kit that you can do in the home. Your dentist will also explain the application process and answer any queries you might have.
 
How long will it take?
 
If you have chosen the Zoom In-Surgery Whitening Treatment, the 90-minute procedure will be performed by your dentist. During this time, your dentist will apply a hydrogen peroxide solution that will then be activated by an ultraviolet light. You will also be given a touch-up kit that you will be able to use at home to prolong the whitening effect.
Dental implants
 
A missing tooth can do more than affect your confidence – over time it will also affect the alignment of teeth and increase your risk of developing a dental condition. This is why implants are used to fill any gaps left from tooth loss or extraction.
 
By choosing a dental implant, you will have the assurance that the treatment will leave your teeth looking and feeling authentic. These replacement teeth are created to match your natural teeth and are held in place using a titanium screw and act as if you had your own tooth back again.
 
How can it be treated?
 
Your dentist will provide an anesthetic to numb the mouth before cutting into the gum and drilling a small hole in the area of the jawbone where the implant will be placed. A small abutment will then be screwed into this hole.
 
How long will it take?
 
It will usually take 3 to 9 months (depending on the individual) for the gum to heal and the implant to firmly set, so a temporary false tooth may be fitted during this time. Your dentist will advise when the gum is ready for the next operation, at which time they will fit the permanent tooth to the abutment.
