Some types of dental treatments we offer

A new smile can be so important for our patient’s self-confidence, and we deliver an array of different treatments to try and help them achieve this. We will do the best we can to give you the most comfortable and happy experience possible.

 

Teeth whitening

Our dentists at St John’s Wood offer one of the most effective forms of teeth whitening, Enlighten. This involves you having an impression of your teeth taken in order to create a mould for your teeth. This takes a couple of weeks, and during this time, you will brush your teeth with the Enlighten toothpaste, which is made out of the same thing your enamel is, which will help improve the whitening of your teeth.

Once the two weeks are over, you will receive your custom bleaching trays and the home teeth whitening kit, this will include the gels needed to put into the tray. As well as still brushing your teeth twice a day with the specific toothpaste, you will whiten your teeth using the kit every night for two weeks. You will see that your teeth are a few shades brighter after this period is over.

Finally, you will have a 40-minute treatment with us to lighten the colour a bit more, as well as making sure the colour is even and looks natural.

Emergency Dentistry

When your teeth or gums are in a lot of pain, it is good to know that we have emergency dentists here in St John’s Wood to help as much as possible. The most common reasons for emergency dental appointments are:

 

Loose teeth

Unstable teeth can mean that there is a more serious dental issue at play, such as certain diseases and tooth decay. But you might have also knocked your tooth somehow if either of these is the case, it could be a good idea to have an emergency appointment to prevent further damage.

 

Toothache

If you are experiencing chronic tooth pain, it can be very debilitating, and can sometimes cause you to not be able to work or live your day to day life. Like the loose tooth, this could also mean that you have a more serious underlying dental problem.

 

Broken tooth

If you have chipped or broken your tooth, this can be painful when you chew on things or put pressure on the teeth. This can make it difficult to eat food and can lead to further oral diseases, so it would be recommended to get it seen as soon as possible.

 

Invisalign

Another popular dental treatment we offer is Invisalign, which straightens teeth and usually takes 6-12 months to complete depending on your oral health.

When you get Invisalign, you will be given a set of customised aligners which you will need to wear for at least 22 hours a day, it is made out of a soft, clear plastic material which looks very similar to your natural teeth. You will only need to visit our dentist every 6 weeks to ensure everything is going smoothly, so it will not impede on your schedule.
