  2. How to keep your teeth whiter for longer!

    3rd September 2014 by thecourtyardclinic

    White teeth are a sign of beauty and health in modern society. Most of us have heard of dental bleaching or tooth whitening but there is a lot of marketing associated with the whitening industry.

    Here are 5 top tips for keeping your teeth white for as long as possible after whitening:

    1) Watch your diet: anything that can stain a white T shirt can stain your teeth. Curry, red wine, coffee, ketchup

    2) Invest in an electric toothbrush: manual toothbrushing can be very effective if done well. Electric brushes will in general be better at removing stains and so invest in a good one to keep your teeth sparkling!

    3) STOP SMOKING!!: smoking stains the teeth very quickly. In order to maintain sparkling white teeth you need to kick the habit!

    4) Increase the visits to the hygienist: maintaining regular visits to the hygienist will help to remove any stains as well as keeping the gums nice and healthy

    5) Whitening toothpastes: Most whitening toothpastes have abrasive components which can lead to sensitivity, make sure the toothpaste has a high fluoride content to counteract this

    For more information on how to keep your teeth white for longer or to book in with out friendly hygienist. Give us a call on 01932 582949.


  3. Is cosmetic dentistry for you?

    28th August 2014 by thecourtyardclinic

    img1.jpg   Here at The Courtyard Clinic our priority to provide our patients and their families with happy and healthy smiles. A number of our patients come to us to improve the appearance of their smiles, our expert dentists are all well trained in advanced cosmetic dentistry and so are more than happy to help. Here are the 5 main ways we help patients achieve bright, brilliant smiles:

    1) Tooth whitening: tooth whitening also known as dental bleaching is a simple and non invasive way of giving our patients a more youthful smile. It involves the placement of hydrogen peroxide gel either in the clinic or in thin plastic trays at home. Many of our patients go up to 7 shades lighter!

    2) Tooth straightening: Often patients will be unhappy with the position of a certain tooth or teeth. The best way to align the teeth is by use of adult orthodontics or braces. Traditional metal braces is still the gold standard of treatment however there are many other options which can be more cosmetic and much quicker than the traditional 2 years of treatment. Treatments such as Damon, Invisalign, Inman Aligner and Social 6 Lingual braces are all available for patients to get the smile they always wanted.

    3) Cosmetic bonding: Patients will sometimes be unhappy with existing visible fillings at the front of the mouth, or may want to correct small discrepancies in the shape of position of their teeth. Cosmetic bonding can be used to change the shape of teeth often without drilling away any of the natural tooth. This “no drills/no injection” technique is fantastic especially for our nervous patients!

    4) Replacing missing teeth: missing teeth can provide an unharmonious smile which many patients are embarrassed of. These spaces can not only be a cosmetic issue but also a functional one with the surrounding teeth drifting an affecting the bite.

    5) Porcelain veneers or crowns: if the teeth have multiple cosmetic issues i.e. problems with a combination of colour, position and shape then porcelain veneers or crowns can be used. Often a patient will have old crowns which they are unhappy with which can be replaced for more cosmetic materials. In specific cases porcelain veneers can be used to provide a beautiful smile- this is frequently used for the “Hollywood smile” appearance that many people desire. If you are unhappy with your smile then give us a call- many of our patients have been putting off improving their smile for many years,  all of our patients who have improved their smiles wish they did it earlier! Call 01932 582949 and book in for a complimentary smile consultation today!


  4. Unhappy with your smile? Have you thought about discreet adult orthodontics?

    Braces aren’t just for teenagers!

    This is something that we find ourselves discussing with our patients quite frequently at The Courtyard Clinic. Patients come into our practice in Chertsey to talk about improving their smiles and we love helping them get their confidence back. Most patients think veneers or crowns are the only option, and occasionally they are, however in a lot of cases straightening and whitening the teeth is the best option for the lifespan of the teeth and also to get the best cosmetic result.

    We have a lot of experience with adult orthodontics (braces) at The Courtyard Clinic and we offer many options:

    1) Damon braces-
    The Damon System is not just a new product, it’s a whole new way of treating patients. Conventional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient

    2) Invisalign –
    The Invisalign system is as close to invisible as possible with modern orthodontic systems. This very discreet system is removable and very comfortable to wear. Invisalign’s patented Clincheck 3D computerised system allows patients to see the projected finished result at the start of treatment. Invisaligns technology is evolving and we are now able to take on more complicated cases with this revolutionary system

    Invisalign

    3) Social 6 braces-
    This system attaches to the backs of the teeth so that nothing is visible in the patients smile, it is perfect for minor corrections of crowded teeth and can be finished in under 16 weeks in most cases.

    So if you are concerned about your smile and want to improve it in a minimally invasive and cosmetic manner then we have all the options for you at The Courtyard Clinic. To have a free consultation regarding adult braces – give us a call on 01932 582949.


  5. 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
