A smile you will never want to hide

We can use the most advanced techniques to give you a perfect healthy-looking smile. First impressions mean everything, and our state-of-the-art technology can transform your appearance.

CEREC®

The world’s most advanced dental system is now available here at Clinic 43 Dental & Implant Centre. Forget unsightly metal fillings, forget metal crowns, and forget second appointments! CEREC® is the world’s only system for the fabrication of all-ceramic dental restorations in one practice visit.

Using this technology, the dentist prepares the tooth in the normal way for fitting a crown or a veneer but instead of using dental impressions of the tooth, a digital image is taken and converted into a 3D computerised model. This is then sent to an on-site milling machine that fabricates the new tooth. The restoration is then coloured, polished and cemented into place.

Implants

Dental implant treatment is the modern and far superior alternative to dentures and bridges. Implants provide a long-term solution to patients, which is both aesthetically pleasing slows down bone loss and preserves nearby healthy tooth tissue too.

Budget for dental care and save money

Many patients have taken the opportunity of joining our dental care plan and have been delighted with the benefits. We thought it was worthwhile reminding you of the savings our plan members are making and point out that you can join the plan at any time. This is especially relevant if you are considering treatment, as you will receive a discount on your fee. What next? Please telephone the practice if you would like us to send you a registration form by post. Alternatively, you can call into the practice and we can complete a form. This will only take a few minutes and will simply require your name, address and bank account details.

Bad breath!

Bad breath, or ‘halitosis’, is a worry for many people, but some find it difficult to ask for help. Keeping your mouth as clean as possible is the best way to prevent problems. Brushing your teeth twice a day, cleaning with floss between meals and occasional tongue brushing with antibacterial mouthwash, will all help to prevent bad breath. Although gum or tooth problems are the most common causes, there are other possible factors including diet, smoking and a dry mouth. Other medical conditions affecting the gastrointestinal system, throat and sinuses may need to be eliminated.

Finally, visit your hygienist regularly for prevention advice and professional cleaning as recommended by your dentist.

News from our Practice Manager

We are pleased to announce that we now have an advanced telephone system which enables us to answer all telephone enquiries rather than you having to phone back if the line is engaged! We hope this will improve our customer service to you.

It has also proved to be a success with the SMS text messaging service and appointment reminders to your mobile. If you would like to receive reminders by phone please provide us with your mobile number.

Please let us know any feedback you have on this new system.

Why have a hygiene visit?

The main role of a hygiene visit is to clean your teeth professionally – this is usually called a scale and polish. However, perhaps the most important role is for showing you the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque and to keep your gums healthy. Carefully removing deposits that build up on teeth (tartar), and teaching you how to prevent it reforming again, will go a long way to slowing the progress of gum disease. A clean, fresh smile is generally a healthy smile.

Concerned about your smile?

Contact us now to arrange a consultation and see how we can help you gain more confidence with a smile you won’t want to hide.

Don’t be nervous!

Visiting a dentist can be a little daunting for some, so Clinic 43 Dental & Implant Centre takes great care to make patients’ visits as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
For very nervous patients the Clinic 43 Dental & Implant Centre offers an intravenous or IV sedation.

Did you know?

It takes 43 muscles to frown but only 17 to smile?
