Here at Harley Street Dental Clinic in London, we pride ourselves on providing a complete dental service for your every need. Looking after your teeth is our main aim. We can look after both the cosmetic aspects of your teeth, which can affect your self-confidence, and the health of your teeth.
Looking after your teeth is mainly down to you. Most of the upkeep of your teeth is done at home, with regular visits to the W1 dental clinic for check-ups by your dentist.
Why is it important to have regular check-ups?
Your dentist will always stress the importance of visiting regularly for check-ups. There are many reasons for this. In a regular check-up, your dentist will assess the overall state of your oral health and advise you on ways you can improve it, or just tell you to keep up the good work.
A dentist can spot signs of gum disease, tooth decay, oral cancer and other potential risk factors. To assess your oral health accurately the dentist may employ the help of x-rays.
After a routine check-up, you may receive advice about brushing technique, and changes in habits that could help your oral health, like quitting smoking. You will also receive a full treatment plan if any remedial procedures like root canals need to take place.
Generally speaking, a patient should visit the W1 dental clinic once every six months. Some patients need to visit more often, depending on the condition of their teeth, habits and dental history.
Cosmetic services to make you feel great with your teeth
Another service we can provide at Harley Street Dental Clinic is our range of cosmetic treatments. For many of us, the appearance of our teeth is as important as their function. Feeling happy with the look of your smile is very important for your self-confidence.
Thanks to modern dental techniques, there aren’t many cosmetic problems that can’t be solved with the help of a cosmetic dentist.
We can even provide a complete smile makeover. This combines treatments like veneers, whitening and teeth straightening to completely change the look of your smile to something that you can truly be proud to show.
