Treatments

Treatments

Our wide range of treatments covers all aspects of dentistry from preventative care and direct access to hygienist services through to advance restorative treatments such as crowns, veneers and replacing missing teeth with bridges, dental implants and dentures. Amalgam-free dentistry and cosmetic treatments such as tooth whitening, smile makeovers and facial aesthetics are also available.

Family dentistry

Family Dentistry

Regular dental check-up and a professional cleaning carried out by a dental hygienist are necessary to ensure your teeth and gums are clean and healthy. During a dental examination, the dentist will check your teeth, gums and mouth, and keep an eye on any potential problems. They will also be able to discuss your oral health and advise you on your diet and teeth- cleaning habits. Prevention is better than a cure and therefore we will conduct a thorough examination and provide you with a quality care.

Emergency dental care

Emergency Dental Care

Here at Summerley Dental Practice, we offer emergency dentistry to all existing and new patients. We understand that sometimes you may need to see the dentist as soon as possible to resolve painful issues. This is why we offer emergency appointments to diagnose problems, resolve immediate pain and get you out of trouble quickly. If you have a dental emergency please contact us as early as possible, so that we can try and arrange a same day appointment.

Tooth whitening

Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening or tooth bleaching is an effective way of lightening the natural colour of teeth for up to 2 to 3 shades whiter than your baseline shade. This modern pain-free method has become increasingly popular over the past years and is quick and safe to perform in the comfort of your own home. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and customised whitening trays will be made for you. They will then provide you with a home whitening kit and give you full instructions on how to use it.

Nervous patients

Nervous Patients

We understand that some people may feel frightened of the dentist and suffer from anxiety but whether this is due to a bad experience from the past, a fear of needles or a genuine phobia of dental treatment; we are here to help. We always encourage nervous patients to visit our practice for an informal chat first, to enable us to understand their concerns and anxieties. We will make you feel calm and relaxed and we hope our calm and sympathetic approach, developed over many years of experience, starts the process of rebuilding any lost confidence.

Oral sedation is available to patients with an extreme dental phobia. With oral sedation the patients don’t fall asleep, they just become relaxed enough to receive dental treatment they need without having a traumatic experience. Referral to a hospital for general anaesthetic can also be arranged.

Hygienist services

Hygienist Services

Our experienced team of dental hygienists will professionally clean your teeth to reduce the build-up of hard tartar which forms on teeth but cannot be removed just by brushing. Scale and polish will also remove trapped plaque, minimising the risk of dental decay and gum disease. Dental hygienists are now permitted to treat patients without the prescription from a dentist; therefore you can book an appointment without first registering with the dentist.

Dental implants

Dental Implants

When natural teeth are missing you not only lose functionality but the appearance of your facial structure is also being affected. A dental implant is an artificial replacement for a tooth’s root. They fit directly into your jawbone and hold crowns or false teeth such as bridges or dentures in place, in the same way, that roots support natural teeth. Dental implants will help you look and feel better, regain self-esteem and have a better quality of life.

Facial aesthetics

Facial Aesthetics

As we age, our faces show the effect of time in the form of wrinkles that give the impression that we are older than we feel. For many of us, the confidence we felt when we were younger is affected by the ageing that shows on our faces.

More and more people are choosing anti-wrinkle injections as a quick and safe non-surgical way to combating the appearance of age, boosting their confidence and getting a younger looking complexion. Anti-wrinkle treatments temporarily relax muscles in the face, softening facial expression and helping to turn back the clock a few years.
