Cosmetic Dentistry and Teeth Whitening

If staining and discolouration of your teeth are draining your self confidence when it comes to smiling, cosmetic dentistry can give your smile a boost. Teeth whitening can remove much of the day-to-day staining acquired from coffee, tea, wine and smoking.

This can be done quickly and without discomfort. In one study, results showed that the darker the teeth, the greater the whitening effect. Modern whitening techniques are so successful that the demand for this treatment has increased by over 300% in the last 5 years!

At Longborough we can offer both ‘at home’ and ‘in house’ whitening techniques. Our dentists are  qualified to carry out this procedure. It is important to be aware that it is illegal for anyone other than a registered dental professional to carry out whitening procedures as they can damage your teeth and gums if not administered correctly.

First impressions count

We are fast approaching the final phase of our reception makeover.  Our new reception area will give our patients better access to our reception team in a modern, calm environment.

When the reception makeover is complete we will be launching the UltraDEX, performance, oral care range. Developed, used and recommended by dental care professionals and backed by extensive scientific research the UltraDEX range bridges the gap between professional and home care and delivers 12 hours of fresh breath confidence. 

UltraDEX protects teeth and gums, restores natural whiteness and eliminates bad breath, instantly.

Last, but by no means least, we are very proud to announce that we are now a Certified Clinic for the Megagen Implant System.

Dental implants look and feel so natural, you will forget you ever lost a tooth. We have been placing implants at Longborough since 2007 with great results. And for people with loose or ill fitting dentures we can offer a stable solution ‘implant retained dentures.’ Even steak will be back on the menu!

- you're embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth when you smile
- you have retained primary teeth or have teeth that have been missing since birth

- you are not satisfied with the condition of your teeth
- you experience discomfort or inconvenience due to
partial or removable dentures
- removable dentures tend to make you want to gag

- you experience problems eating
- you suffer from pain related to your teeth
- you have teeth that appear to be loosening

Cosmetic dentistry and implants can keep you smiling

The team at Longborough Dental Practice are committed to helping their patients retain their own teeth and can offer a wide range of preventative and restorative treatments to help keep everyone smiling.

People want to keep fitter for longer and retain a ‘youthful’ appearance and a healthy mouth will help contribute to this. There is now a well established link between periodontal disease (gum disease) and the risk of coronary heart disease. At Longborough, patients who understand the importance of maintaining healthy gums regularly see the dental hygienist.

There are also many ways of filling a ‘gap’ without resorting to a denture. Dental implants are one means of ensuring a confident smile. If replacing a molar tooth an implant will help to maintain a good biting surface which in itself is crucial to long term good health and well being.

However, if you are already living with a loose denture which causes you to miss out on life’s simple pleasures such as eating your favourite foods, laughing, smiling or talking in public, all is not lost!

At Longborough the dental team can offer you mini-implants for denture stabilisation. After a simple procedure to fit mini-implants our patients can find their lives transformed.
