We offer a full range of general dental services here at Allestree Dental Practice. These services include regular examinations, diagnosis advice and treatment planning, preventative care and periodontal treatment if required.
When you visit us for a check-up you can expect a thorough and complete check of your gums, teeth and soft tissues in and around the mouth. We will carry out an oral cancer check as standard as we are trained to notice any unusual symptoms in the mouth that could suggest cancer is present. The earlier cancer is detected, the higher your chance of successful treatment.
We will also have a chat with you about any changes in health or medication, diet or lifestyle that could be influencing your oral health. We might also complete some diagnostics like X-rays to look at what is going on beneath the gum line.
Your check-up is also a good time to mention any problems you may have been having with your teeth, gums or jaw. You might also want to speak to us about any smile improvements you are interested in if cosmetic dentistry is on your mind. We can give you more information and let you know if you need a consultation or not
Nowadays fillings are not only functional but can also be natural looking (cosmetic).
Many people don’t want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look; you can consider replacing old fillings with a tooth-coloured material. It is usually best to change fillings only when your dentist decides that an old filling needs replacing.
Natural colour fillings are a quick and cost-effective way to help enhance your smile - for more information and friendly advice please contact a member of the reception team.
Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:
brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
eating a balanced diet
visiting the dentist regularly.
Tooth whitening offers one of the most affordable and effective ways to makeover your smile.
Our home tooth whitening can deliver excellent results within several weeks to give you a fantastic confidence boost as you show off your whiter looking teeth.
The results achieved through tooth whitening should last for several years but this will vary from one person to the next depending on your lifestyle, the types of food you eat and the natural structure of your teeth. If you feel that you need a top-up treatment, we will be happy to help.
If you need any more information, then please contact our reception staff who will be more than happy to answer any queries that you may have.
