    Here at The Courtyard Clinic all of our dentists are experienced users of the CEREC system.
    CEREC is a state of the art technology which allows our dentists to provide crowns and veneers to an incredible level of accuracy in 1 visit instead of the traditional 2 visits you will find in most dentists.

    This means
    1) no temporary crowns or veneers
    2) less time needed in the dental chair
    3) No gooey impression material
    4) Metal free restorations

    The dentists at The Courtyard Clinic are so passionate about this topic that one of our dentists (Dr Simon Chard) even lectures nationally to other dentists on how to use this fantastic technology.
    So if you have old crowns/veneers which no longer look there best or are interested in new crowns or veneers then give Alison a call on 01932582949 and book in today!

  3. Whiter teeth for patients at The Courtyard Clinic

    13th December 2013 by thecourtyardclinic

    One of our most popular treatments at The Courtyard Clinic is Tooth whitening (also known as tooth bleaching). We are currently running a fantastic discount on tooth whitening for patients looking for whiter teeth for christmas- Tooth whitening for £199 and 20% discount off examination/hygiene.

    tw

    Tooth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discolourations in the teeth. The system uses a mild peroxide gel retained in a custom-fitted tray that is worn over your teeth for 1-2 hours a day.

    What causes tooth discolouration??

    There are many causes:

    The most common include:

    • aging
    • coffee
    • tea
    • cola
    • tobacco
    • red wine
    • trauma
    • old fillings

    In general anything that can stain a white T-shirt can stain your teeth also.

    Who can benefit from tooth whitening?

    MOST PEOPLE can benefit from tooth whitening. However there are some cases where the treatment may be inappropriate or ineffective. Your dentist will determine if you are a viable candidate for the treatment and this is one of the reasons tooth whitening should never be provided by someone who is not a dental care professional.

    IS IT SAFE??

    YES!! When carried out by a trained dental professional clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth with hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is safe for teeth and gums. In fact if you look around The Courtyard Clinic staff, you may see that many of them have had the treatment done themselves! A new website has recently been launched advising patients on concerns for safety:

    http://www.safetoothwhitening.org/

    How long does it take?

    On average 10-14 days, but the trays do not need to be worn overnight.

    In cases of very dark teeth it can take longer and your dentist will advise you of this.

    Are there any side effects?

    Some people temporarily get  increased sensitivity which disappears a few days after carrying out the treatment.

    Here at The Courtyard Clinic we use PHILIPS ZOOM Night White tooth whitening. Please give Alison a call today on 01932582 949 or send us an email at reception@thecourtyardclinic.com

  8. Parents beware!

    8th September 2010 by thecourtyardclinic

    This summer I have seen a number of young patients (under the age of 6) with decay in their teeth…. but they have healthy low sugar diets (very few sweets!) and motivated caring parents who do check their children have cleaned their teeth…..
    The thing these children have had in common , is their habit of consuming dried raisins as a ‘snack’.
    Traditionally considered ‘quite healthy’…. dried fruit (in particular raisins) can contain a lot of sugar and remain stuck in the teeth for periods of time.
    I would like to advise all of our patients, but particularly parents of young children to be aware of this, and try to avoid dried fruit as a snack between meals and stick to fresh fruit or something savoury.
    Dr. Yasmin George.


  9. Dentist Friend or Foe?

    25th June 2010 by thecourtyardclinic

    Is it my teeth?

    Studies show that people who suffer from dental phobia usually feel embarrassed about the state of their teeth, and it’s this embarrassment that stops them from seeking help. (Source: www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov )

    This leads to a vicious cycle – by the time many people gather the courage to see a dentist their teeth have been neglected for some time, which means they need to spend lots of time at the dentist and the procedures are very likely to be invasive, the very treatment they feared in the first place.

    But it doesn’t have to be that way. Regular check-ups will help prevent most problems before they begin, and as opposed to the dentist of yester-year, today’s dentists are usually very sympathetic.

    1. The first thing to do is to acknowledge your fears and understand exactly what it is that scares you about the dentist. Knowing what you fear will help put you in control once you’re in the dentist’s chair.
    2. Find a dentist you can trust, and one that you will make you feel comfortable. Ask your friends and family for a referral and if that fails look for a dentist that specialises in nervous patients. And then talk to them, tell them your fears and ask for their help in trying to address those fears and to help you relax.
    3. Distraction. A common avoidance technique is to take along some music so that you’re not aware of the normal sounds of a dentist’s office, especially the drill.
    4. Relaxation and self-hypnosis. Practice this with a trained health professional beforehand and this can be very effective method of coping with the dentist’s chair.
    5. If all else fails…. many specially trained dentists can offer sedation which can greatly help very nervous individuals receive the treatment they need.

    Remember that the dentist is trained to deal with decayed teeth and receding gums, that’s their job. And no matter how bad you think your teeth are, they’ve probably seen worse.


  10. Crowns

    12th June 2010 by thecourtyardclinic

    Crowns are also known as ‘caps’.

    When a tooth is damaged extensively by decay or trauma, a filling may not be suitable to restore the tooth and a crown is then the choice of treatment.

    Also for aesthetic reasons, a crown can cover a discoloured tooth.   

    A crown is designed to cover the part of the tooth that shows above the gum. If that part of the tooth is not sufficient to carry a crown, the root of the tooth can be  used.

    After the tooth is prepared and shaped, an impression is taken. The impression is sent to the dental technician who then designs amd makes  a crown to fit the tooth and sends it back to the dentist.

    The crown is then cemented onto the tooth.

    Between the visits a temporary crown covers the prepared tooth.

    Inlays or onlays are crowns that do not cover the whole surface of the tooth but are designed to replace a big part of it.

    There are many types of crowns. The most common are listed below:

    • Porcelain bonded crowns: Consists of a metal core with porcelain fused on top. They are used to restore front and back teeth.
    • Ceramic crowns: are crowns with no metal core for better aesthetics. They can be used for back and front teeth and nowadays are very strong.
    • Porcelain crowns: these crown is made of porcelain and is used for front teeth.
    • Gold crowns: are made from a mixture of gold and other metal alloys. These crowns are ideal for patients who grind their teeth or where there is very little tooth remaining.
