Services

We offer existing patients complimentary 20-minute, no-obligation treatment assessments.  These ensure suitability, discuss the procedure, and advise on future maintenance.

Cosmetic Tooth Alignment

Whilst we are not an orthodontic practice, in many cases, we can provide Cosmetic Tooth Alignment of the front teeth (“Social Six”) for our adult patients.

We offer 3 types of tooth alignment:

  1. CFast - white tooth-coloured brackets with Nickel-Titanium (“Ni-Ti”) white wires.  This is an extremely effective fixed system that delivers great results in about 6-8 months
  2. Inman Aligner -a removable appliance - taken out for eating and cleaning – with results in around in 4-6 months
  3. Clear Aligners (SmileLign) - a series of clear, thin, hard and discreet plastic trays that are worn in sequence.  The trays are changed every 2-3 weeks. Typical treatment taken 6-8 months

Crowns and bridges

We can provide cosmetic Zirconia and well as porcelain-bonded to precious metal (“PBCs”) crowns and bridges as well as gold work.  We offer a 5-year warranty on all Zirconia and porcelain-bonded work, and a lifetime warranty* on gold work!

* Warranty on integrity of lab work for as long as you remain a patient at the practice, and if regular check-up and hygienist appointments are kept as recommended.

Family dentistry

At Tavistock House we welcome patients of all ages. Many of our patients were first brought to see us by their parents in the 1970’s and 1980’s, and we now look after their children and in some cases their grandchildren!

Our team of dental professionals provide the highest quality of care by combining the latest techniques with modern and safe materials.

For children, we minimise future invasive treatment by applying protective sealants and treatments to prevent decay.  When necessary, we can advise on diet, brushing techniques, what to look for in toothbrushes and toothpastes.  In most cases, should your child need a filling we can place a cosmetic composite one to make the tooth look and feel as natural as possible.

For adults, we aim to preserve the health of your teeth and gums by informing and educating you on cleaning techniques, so that you have the best chance of maintaining your teeth for life.  Our team of hygienists, dentists, nursing and reception staff all work together to look after you throughout your dental experience.

Tooth whitening

We offer two types of safe and effective tooth whitening:

1) In-house Zoom Whitening: Within a two-hour appointment we can whiten your teeth.  This includes gum preparation, one hour of whitening, a run-through of a few “dos and don’ts”, and a home whitening kit

-alternatively-

2) Home whitening kit only -we can construct clear whitening trays for you to wear with a gel that will whiten your teeth while you sleep!

Depending on individual tooth colours different treatments respond better to one or other type of whitening.

Philips Zoom!

Did you know that it is illegal for anyone other than a Dental Professional to carry out tooth whitening?  The High Court confirmed the position of the General Dental Council regarding this in 2013. https://www.gdc-uk.org/patients/illegal-practice/legal-position

Dental implants

Implants are the revolutionary way to replace teeth that have been lost through decay, gum disease or because of an accident.  A missing tooth can lead to self-consciousness, eating difficulties, and speech impediments.

We can offer porcelain and precious metal implants supported by biocompatible titanium rods that are fixed permanently into the jawbone.  Over several months, the body accepts the implant before a crown is attached to the root that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.

Implants are long-lasting and free-standing, so there is no damage to the adjacent teeth. They can be treated with a toothbrush and floss just like natural teeth.

Implants are stronger than natural teeth and many patients report the renewed ability to eat a variety of foods that they could not previously manage.

 

Cosmetic and Minimally Invasive Dentistry

As a practice standard, wherever possible we will place cosmetic white composite fillings, bonded to your teeth, and set in-house with a high frequency visible blue laser.  This bonding process allows us to remove very little healthy tooth tissue, compared to traditional methods, and ensure that you maintain as much of your own natural tooth structure as possible.

We are proud to have been awarded membership of the British Dental Association Good Practice Scheme since 2011 and we are constantly trying to improve the quality and range of services we can provide to our patients.
