1. Further questions over safety of dental amalgam

    10th August 2014 by thecourtyardclinic


    This link shows a trailer for an upcoming documentary on questioning the safety of dental amalgam for use in fillings. Here at The Courtyard Clinic we are a mercury free practice and no longer use dental amalgam. The British Dental Association and Department of Health currently view dental amalgam as safe for purpose in the NHS and the majority of dental practices in the UK continue to use the material. In other areas such as in Scandinavia the material is no longer used.

    As a practice we have made the decision to no longer use amalgam fillings containing mercury instead opting for modern white filling materials which are mercury free, and are designed to look as ordertramadol close to natural teeth as possible. We remove all of our dental amalgam using high volume suction to remove the vapour as well as carrying out the procedure under a seal called rubber dam,  which isolates the mouth from the amalgam vapour.

    If you are concerned about the mercury in your fillings and would like to have a chat or a complimentary consultation,  to discuss upgrading them for more modern white materials then please give us a call on 01932 582949 or book in online.

  4. Minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry at The Courtyard Clinic, Chertsey.

    27th November 2013 by thecourtyardclinic


    Our newest team member Dr Simon Chard has recently returned from a 3 day meeting in London with some of the leading lights in cosmetic dentistry at the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD) conference 2013. The conference, in it’s 10th year, is an opportunity for people from around the world to come and present the most modern techniques in improving patients smiles.


    The key trend this year was minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry, something the team at The Courtyard Clinic is very passionate about!

    Minimally invasive dentistry is the philosophy that when improving patient’s smiles we remove as little of the patient’s natural tooth as possible- thus improving the prognosis of the patient’s natural teeth. Traditional cosmetic dentistry developed a less than ideal reputation in the dental world for being overly destructive of natural teeth. The new wave of modern and ethical cosmetic dentists, such as the dentists at The Courtyard Clinic, employ the latest materials, techniques and technology to be as minimal as possible.

    This includes the use of:

    • Adult orthodontics (braces)
    • Tooth whitening
    • CEREC technology
    • Modern Ceramic materials
    • Modern aesthetic white filling materials
    • Implants

    At this latest conference Dr Simon, who sits on a number of committees for the BACD, enjoyed discussions on a number of these latest advances in the field and this week has brought them back to review their implementation with the team at The Courtyard Clinic.

    Please contact Alison on 01932 582949 or at reception@thecourtyardclinic.com if you would like to improve your smile in a modern and minimally invasive manner.
