We will clean your teeth thoroughly, and then apply a bleaching agent, hydrogen peroxide, to your teeth. This agent is activated using a light source, which will be directed onto the teeth for around 45 minutes. The whole procedure should be completed within the hour.

Strong, Wafer Thin Smile Makeovers with Durathin Veneers

Do you feel self-conscious about your smile? Do you wish you had a perfect smile? Many people hide their smiles away because they’re worried about imperfections. The good news is that you don’t have to have perfect natural teeth to have a stunning smile. With Durathin veneers, we can give you the smile of your dreams.

Introducing Durathin veneers

Durathin veneers, as you may have gathered from the name, are both durable and thin. Although these veneers are very delicate, they’re also incredibly strong. This powerful combination gives you the best of both worlds: you can enjoy a stunning, natural smile, which will also stand the test of time.

Durathin veneers are applied to the tooth surface and they create incredible results. The process is simple, and it takes just two sessions to achieve a magical new smile.

The advantages of Durathin veneers

Usually, when you have veneers, your teeth have to be prepared first, and this involves removing a fine layer of the tooth surface. With Durathin, as the veneers are so fine, the preparation stage is much less invasive, and the tooth structure can be maintained and preserved. As well as offering a simpler and more comfortable treatment process, Durathin veneers also offer brilliant, natural aesthetics, and results that will last.

Are Durathin veneers a good option for me?

If you have aesthetic flaws, which cause you to lack confidence, or you’d love to have a more attractive smile, we recommend Durathin veneers. We can use these veneers to target all kinds of issues, from misaligned and misshapen teeth to pearly whites that have lost their sheen.

Why Not Both? Combination Teeth Whitening at Baker Street in London

If you’re looking into tooth whitening, you may have come across at-home and in-chair treatments. Both have incredible benefits, and this can make it difficult to choose which option to go for. If you’re struggling to decide, why not enjoy the best of both worlds? With Enlighten combination whitening, you can enjoy incredible results that will last for years.

What is Enlighten?

Enlighten is a professional whitening system, which uses a combination of at-home treatment and in-chair whitening to achieve amazing results. For the first 14 days, patients undergo treatment at home, and this followed by a trip to the clinic, where we will provide a one-hour power whitening session. Home treatment is very simple and hassle-free. When you have your consultation, we will create an impression of your teeth, and this will be used to make your custom Enlighten trays. These trays are similar to mouth guards, and they contain whitening agent, which lightens the enamel on contact. The trays are designed to be worn for around 6 hours per day, and you can fit treatment in around your schedule.

On the 15th day of treatment, we’ll invite you to attend a one-hour in-chair session, which will give your smile that extra sparkle. The procedure is very simple, and you won’t feel any pain. We will apply whitening agent to your teeth, ask you to put some protective goggles on, and then shine a light onto the teeth to activate the chemical. You can sit back and relax, and let Enlighten work its magic.

If you’re interested in tooth whitening, and you’re looking for a treatment that produces dazzling smiles, why not get in touch with us today and find out more about incredible Enlighten?

Gummy Smiles are A Thing of the Past With Crown Lengthening

If you have a gummy smile, and you’re looking for a solution, crown lengthening may be a viable option. A gummy smile doesn’t pose dental health risks, but it can affect confidence, and crown lengthening can enhance the aesthetic of the smile at the same time as boosting self-esteem.

What exactly is a gummy smile?

A gummy smile is a term given to the appearance of the smile when the gum tissue covers a larger portion of the tooth crown than normal. This can cause more gum tissue to be visible when you smile, and the teeth to look short and small. A gummy smile doesn’t cause unpleasant symptoms like pain, but it can affect your confidence if you’re not happy with the look of your teeth.

What is crown lengthening and how could it benefit me?

Crown lengthening is a procedure, which can be used to address a gummy smile. The aim of this treatment is to make more of the tooth visible when you smile by exposing more of the crown by removing excess gum tissue. The procedure involves trimming away excess gum tissue and then restoring the tooth with a crown if it is damaged or worn. When you have treatment, more of the crown of the tooth will become visible, and as such, your teeth will look longer and larger, improving the balance of the smile. We use laser treatment to minimise discomfort and speed up the healing process.

If you have a gummy smile, and you wish you had a more attractive smile, we can help. We have procedures and tried and tested techniques that offer that can transform the appearance of the teeth to create a more balanced, even aesthetic and give you more confidence when your smile is on show. To find out more about crown lengthening, simply give us a call and book a consultation.

Three Reasons Why A Smile Makeover is Good for Your Teeth

shutterstock_340237085Do you feel self-conscious about your smile? Do you wish you had perfect teeth? Are your teeth worn, broken or crooked? If so, have you thought about treating yourself to a smile makeover? At Baker Street Dental, we offer a bespoke smile makeover service and we pride ourselves on producing spectacular results. If you’re thinking about taking the plunge, here are just 3 of the reasons a smile makeover is good for your teeth:

  1. Aesthetics: many people consider their smile their most important physical feature. If you’re not happy with the look of your smile, it’s natural to want to hide your teeth away whenever possible. A smile makeover can improve the appearance of your smile dramatically. This isn’t beneficial just for your confidence and wellbeing, but also for your love life and your career. Studies show that a nice smile is something potential partners and employers look for.
  2. Strength and stability: if you have chipped, broken or missing teeth, this can put your smile at risk. Broken, crumbling teeth are susceptible to damage, and gaps in the smile can increase the risk of any remaining healthy teeth moving out of position. We have a range of restorative treatments, including crowns, bridges and dentures available, and we can help to strengthen your teeth and reduce the risk of injury.
  3. Improved oral health: if you have crooked, crowded, chipped or overlapping teeth, this can make it difficult to maintain good oral hygiene. A smile makeover can help to rectify these issues, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your smile, but also improving your dental health.

Smile makeovers are famed for their incredible aesthetic benefits, but they also offer additional advantages, which are beneficial for your oral health. If you’re interested in a smile makeover, and you’d like to find out more, call us today and we can arrange a consultation.

Saudi Arabia emerges as appealing destination for dental tourists

shutterstock_1012656667Saudi Arabia is emerging as an increasingly appealing destination for dental tourists, it has been revealed.

Research suggests that there has been an increase in visitor numbers in recent years, with many looking to access dental services at lower costs. Currently, Saudi Arabia ranks third in the list of the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries for the ratio of dentists to patients. Most dentists are based in Riyadh, Al Khobar and Jeddah.

The affordability of treatment in comparison to Western countries has marked Saudi Arabia as a potential location for tourists looking to save money on the latest dental treatments. The tourism boom has contributed to expansion within the market and an increase in students choosing to study dentistry at university. The number of dentists in the country has risen from 8,100 in 2011 to 16,887 in 2016.

Experts believe that the growth of the dental market is linked to tourism, but also to improved oral health awareness and an increase in aesthetic treatments, which are focused on making the smile look more attractive. There is also a suggestion that an increase in disposable income has led to the rising popularity of non-essential treatments, such as invisible braces and veneers.
