Since as early as the 1800s Harley Street has been synonymous with the highest possible standards of excellence in the fields of medicine and cosmetic dentistry. Here at Harley Street Dental Clinic, we’ve been committed to upholding the reputation of the surrounding area and providing local residents and beyond with a dental service befitting the area for over thirty years. We believe that each patient is unique and each set of teeth present an entirely new set of challenges. As such, we feel that the treatment patients receive ought to be catered to their specific needs and requirements – rather than adopting the one-size-fits-all approach which is all too common in practices across the country. Treatment with us at Harley Street, is only carried out by a practitioner whom the patient trusts and respects wholeheartedly – and treatment only begins after lengthy informal consultations have taken place, which detail the specifics of the opted for procedure, as well as what patients may expect the outcome to be.
Some of the most popular methods of dental care we offer include teeth whitening, veneers and implants.These are cosmetic treatments used to combat superficial issues with teeth, such as stains and deterioration, or crooked and misaligned teeth. Dental veneers are one such cosmetic dental treatment which is opted for in instances where patients’ teeth are chipped, stained or misaligned, and are vastly favoured over some other dental corrective treatments as they do not require a major procedure. Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain which is colour matched to natural teeth and bonded to the front of a patient’s teeth with a strong bonding agent. Veneers are used to make teeth appear together and cohesive, and can act as a substitute to braces in instances where there are only small gaps between teeth by bringing them together. Treatment of this nature can be massively beneficial to the patients who seek it, as it can renew their self-esteem and restore their smiles to their fullest potential.
Replacing what is lost
Another cosmetic dental service which we offer is the installation of dental implants in Harley Street. Dental implants in Harley Street are only generally opted for in instances where teeth have been lost or damaged beyond repair, and act as a prosthetic response to large or unsightly gaps in a patient’s mouth. The process of installing dental implants in Harley Street initially consists of drilling a small hole into the patient’s gum in the space where the missing tooth (or teeth) are. 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 of the patient’s gum – a replica tooth constructed from porcelain or plastic is then screwed into place. Thus the gap is bridged with a good-as-new tooth, and the patient once again has the ability to smile freely, without having to worry about any potential embarrassment arising from exposing large and unsightly spaces between teeth.
