Harley street has a longstanding reputation as being the place to go in the London area for the highest level of professionalism and expertise in the fields of medicine and dentistry.
Here at Harley Street Dental Clinic, we’ve been providing the local residents and beyond with some of London’s highest levels of dental care. We believe that the individual needs of each patient are as unique as those presenting them, and as such each treatment should be designed around the individual, rather than adopting the one-size-fits-all approach that is favoured by far too many other practices across the city.
Some procedures which are very popular here are getting dental implants as well as the services offered by the cosmetic dentist in Harley Street. We understand that a healthy and straight smile can be greatly beneficial in boosting one’s confidence and self-esteem. We also understand however that the opposite can be the case and that people who have crooked and damaged teeth can find their social lives impacted, as well as it having a detrimental effect on their self-esteem and confidence. Therefore, we offer a full range of cosmetic dental procedures which can help patients achieve a straighter smile, and thus improve their social standing. One such procedure offered here at Harley Street is teeth whitening, which is a cosmetic treatment used to whiten the appearance of teeth and eradicate any superficial stains that have been caused by smoking, drinking coffee or red wine or certain medications. The teeth whitening procedure utilises a whitening agent to brighten teeth and restore their natural shine. We offer two distinct types of teeth whitening here, ‘Zoom Whitening’ which is carried out in our practice, and ‘Home Whitening’ which can be carried out at a time and place convenient to the patient. Zoom whitening uses a bleaching gel which is activated by a specialist light, and the effects are instantaneous – allowing patients to leave the same day with a glistening new smile. Home whitening kits utilise a custom made retainer, into which a bleaching agent is applied before being worn at home for a few hours at a time. This method of treatment takes around two weeks before clearly visible effects can be seen, this can be massively beneficial in boosting the self-esteem and confidence of patients.
Filling the space
Another treatment offered here by the cosmetic dentist in Harley Street is the installation of dental implants. This is a cosmetic treatment which is generally only used in instances where teeth have been lost or damaged beyond repair and it acts as a prosthetic solution to any large gaps in a patient’s mouth. The process of installing dental implants begins with a small hole being drilled into the gum of the patient’s mouth in the space where the missing tooth or teeth were situated. Then a titanium screw is inserted into the hole, and left to heal. After a brief healing period – during which time the titanium fuses with the bone in the patient’s gum – a replica tooth (or denture) made of porcelain or plastic is then fixed on the screw and thus the gap is bridged with a new tooth. Dental implants can be massively beneficial in restoring a patient’s self-esteem and confidence as it affords them the ability to once again smile to their fullest – without having to be embarrassed by exposing large unsightly gaps within their mouths.
