Teeth Whitening Procedure
It is a similar bleaching process by which objects are naturally whitened by sunlight but, thanks to the blue light and hydrogen peroxide, the whitening treatment allows our clients to leave in just under an hour with their teeth at their optimal whiteness.
It is also completely safe, because unlike sunlight, our patented light does not release harmful ultra-violet rays. Instead, it operates in the gentle blue-green spectrum, which is safe for tooth enamel as well as skin, gums, and other soft tissues.

Gum Disease is caused by a build up of bacteria that lives within plaque and tartar that build up on teeth during everyday living and is the main cause of tooth loss in adults as oppose to decay.

Failure to remove bacteria can cause the gums to redden and swell and bleed easily hen touched. If not treated, gum disease can progress to cause gum shrinkage, bone loss and ultimately loose teeth.
Thorough removal of bacteria and deposits is a major part of our maintenance programme carried out by our dental hygienists who will also advise on the most appropriate interdental cleaning techniques and materials to be used at home to redress problems with gum disease.
In case of gum disease
If you have gum disease or unattractive receding gums, our general dentists, offers tooth-saving periodontal services to help. Gum disease treatment at our dental practice entails a thorough exam of your teeth and gums. Using a periodontal probe, our dentists can determine if you have any breakdown in gum tissue or if any pockets have developed between your teeth and gums. On our initial consultation the X-rays will determine if there has been any bone loss below the surface of the gums.
The type of gum disease treatment used will depend on the stage and type of gum disease you have. A thorough, deep cleaning or "scaling" below the gum line can remove microbial plaque and calculus deposits that often cause bacterial growth and bone loss. If gum pockets are deep, surgery may be required. Our dentists also uses antibiotic therapy to treat certain forms of gum disease.

The alternative reference is expressed as indirect fillings and it offers a stronger, longer lasting reparative solute to tooth decay or similar dental problems. This type of restoration offers a benefit from both aesthetic and functional point of view.
Inlays / Onlays are fabricated indirectly in a lab before it is fitted to the damaged tooth by our dental doctors. It is named an “inlay” when the material is bonded within the centre of a tooth and is expressed as “onlay” when the damage is in such degree that it requires an inclusion of one or more points of the tooth or its biting surface.
