    The patient in the photo above came in with a broken tooth and less than 2 hours later left with a new aesthetic cerec crown.

    Here at The Courtyard Clinic we pride ourselves on offering our patients the latest state of the art treatment to provide them with the best quality of care. Cerec is a modern technology that the dentists at the practice utilise to provide patients with aesthetic and strong crowns and bridges without the need to return for 2 visits.

    What are the benefits of CEREC?

    There are several advantages to having treatment with CEREC over conventional, laboratory-made restorations:

    Everything is carried out in a single visit – you only need to visit the dentist once – take one day away from your work or life to have the procedure – instead of the usual two or three visits.

    Only one set of local anaesthetic injections
    – since the entire procedure can be carried out within the hour, you only need to have one lot of injections.

    Your dentist is in complete control of the final result
    – since the crown or veneer is designed and fabricated from start to finish by your dentist, he/she has total control over how it will look and fit, whereas a crown made in a laboratory is under the control of the technician who hasn’t even seen the patient.

    No temporary restorations
    – if you have lab-made veneers, you would require temporary veneers during the wait for your new teeth. These have been known to fall off and cause problems, which is a step that is omitted with CEREC restorations.

    Minimally invasive- With cerec technology we utilise adhesive dentistry to only remove what is necessary to protect your teeth. This more modern approach to dentistry allows our dentist to reduce the risk or root canal and improve the prognosis of the teeth over the patients lifetime.

    If you think you may need a crown or bridge placed then contact Alison today on 01932582949 or email on reception@thecourtyardclinic.com


  2. Discreet orthodontics for patients in Chertsey

    Myleene Klass has shown them to morning television viewers, Karen Millen has had them and even Kate Middleton is reported to have had them before the royal wedding. What are we talking about….. Adult lingual orthodontics.

    However here at The Courtyard Clinic this is not just for celebrities; more and more adults are turning to these discreet braces to give them smiles they can really be proud of.

    There has been a perception over the last 20 years that braces are for teenagers which has put many people off, lingual braces offer an option which is invisible in most social situations which for many adults is very important. The brackets are placed on the teeth on the side next to the tongue as opposed to the traditional cheek side of the teeth.

    There has been a huge surge in demand for this treatment from patients in their 40s, 50s and 60s who were not offered traditional orthodontics/braces in their youth,  but are unhappy with their current smiles.

    So if you are unhappy with your smile and are looking for a minimally invasive method to improve it,  call Alison on 01932 582 949 or email reception@thecourtyardclinic.com .

    Our experience in treating anxious or phobic patients means we fully understand what a big step coming to the dentist can be for many. You’ll never be rushed or pushed into a decision at The Courtyard Clinic; you’ll always be made to feel very welcome and in control at all times.

    In the event that you do need a local anaesthetic or numbing of the tooth we can administer it using the innovative and painless ‘Wand’ technique, rather than having to use a needle. Our patients inform us this is a revelation for them as for many nervous patients the injection is a major hurdle.

    For many people, a dental visit, or even the thought of one, can cause immense worry and stress. We hope to change all that and have designed our environment to make our patients feel relaxed and comfortable. If you decide to go ahead, we have many techniques to help us to put you completely at your ease. We offer the free use of our Movie glasses, watching your favourite film can act as a fantastic destraction whilst the treatment is being carried out.

    For those patients who are very anxious we offer intra-venous and oral (tablets) sedation, this puts the patient at ease whilst still being awake and without the need to be in a hospital enviroment.

    If you have any concerns or anxieties about coming to see us you’re always very welcome to visit the practice before commencing treatment to talk to us about sedation, painless dentistry or simply to take a look around the practice and meet the friendly team.

    To find out more about our special range of treatments for nervous patients please contact Alison on 01932582 949 or email reception@thecourtyardclinic.com. New patients can now also book a free consultation on the website homepage.
