One of our most highly sought after treatments in London are the Invisalign braces. A near-invisible alternative to the traditional metal braces, Invisalign is a removable custom-made aligner that slowly moves your teeth into perfect alignment. They are frequently chosen over metal braces as they are far more comfortable, more hygienic and less disruptive, but above all they are near invisible.

Cosmetic Dentistry began in the 1930’s when a Californian Dentist improved the smiles of the Hollywood stars. Over the decades techniques have improved and developed in cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers, thin layers of porcelain, are bonded to the surface of broken, misshapen and discloured teeth to create beautiful smiles. The porcelain available now can mimic the beauty of natural enamel allowing full control of the colour of the final result. The British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry was set up in 2003 to provide guidance and education to dentists interested in providing cosmetic dentistry and to provide patients a useful resource to gain information on what is possible in cosmetic dentistry. Dr Dentist is the Past President of the Academy. He has been at the forefront of Cosmetic Dentistry for many years, lecturing throughout the world specifically on the use of computers in creating restorations such as crowns and veneers. Dr Caplan is now able to produce a smile makeover in a day. This is very unusual, as most dentists would require the help of a Dental Technician to produce porcelain veneers. Dr Dentist uses a system called dentistry that uses computer aided design and manufacture (CadCam) to create porcelain dental restorations. The process involves scanning the mouth with a highly accurate specialized camera that creates a virtual 3-D image of the scanned mouth on a computer. The teeth to have veneers or crowns are chosen on the screen and various design tools are used to create a virtual porcelain restoration. This is then used to mill a porcelain block shaded to match the patient’s teeth to create porcelain restorations within a few minutes. These porcelain restorations are then characterized and glazed in a porcelain oven, similar to glazing pottery, producing a beautiful life-like porcelain restoration. These are then immediately bonded to the existing teeth. Within a few hours a patient can have their smile transformed. The Cerec system can be used to treat Damaged teeth Severely discoloured teeth Worn teeth Spaces between teeth Crowded teeth Denture stabilisation is a rather clever treatment which saves denture users from the embarrassment and inconvenience of slipping dentures. Following an initial consultation, you’ll undergo a procedure whereby four small screws (overdenture implants) are inserted into your jaw. The procedure takes only an hour, can be performed under local anaesthetic, and will leave your dentures as stable and firm as natural teeth.

Our resident hygienists provide advice on teeth care, perform high-level cleaning services and help to spot signs of problems such as plaque build-up and gum disease before they become serious issues. The hygienist will explain very clearly to children how best to clean their teeth. Orthodontic patients must ensure they have regular hygiene visits to care for their teeth and gums whilst they have braces. We offer Direct Access Hygiene which means that even if a person is not a dentist patient, they can make an appointment with our hygienists. This is especially popular with people who may be visiting London temporarily and just feel their teeth and gums need an extra clean. We can now offer Air-Flow which is the latest in hygiene technology. This polishing technique uses high pressure air and water and a specially-formulated powder which can help restore teeth to their natural colour by removing external stains such as those caused by coffee, tea, red wine and daily living. If you want a step-change in the whiteness of your smile then our dentists also offer teeth whitening. We understand that all children are small adults, and all procedures need to be explained simply and in their language. With this in mind, their journey from the waiting room through to the surgery is soft and caring. At eleven, we want to help you and your child look after those precious teeth right up to adulthood. Our specialist team and dedicated Paediatric Dentist, Dr J, will explain the importance of oral hygiene and prevention along with modern, child-friendly, conservative treatment procedures. We work carefully with a general dentist and an orthodontist ensuring your child’s dental needs are addressed at all stages of their development. Oral health education: does responsibility lie with schools or parents? Oral health and looking after teeth is ultimately education driven and as a parent, if you bring a child into this world you are responsible for them. If parents are motivated and knowledgeable about how to brush and care for their teeth, the children will be too. As clinical director at best Dental care, I see day in and day out that children tend to have the same traits as their parents and therefore oral health education at home is crucial. Today’s world is busy, but parents should be spending a little bit more time with their children and taking them through the correct methods to look after their teeth. Tooth decay is fundamentally related to two things: brushing teeth and diet. Firstly, children should be educated on the importance of brushing in the morning and evening for two minutes. Parents need to motivate their children and make it fun whilst setting and demonstrating clear guidelines. Children don’t have the manual dexterity to adequately do this on their own until the age of 6, so prior to this parents should be supervising teeth brushing. It is good to give children responsibility but unfortunately, if left to their own devices without parental support, they will often be leaving plaque, bacteria and food debris in the mouth. The second aspect is diet, which is related to discipline. We always talk about limiting sugar intake to meal times and not snacking on sugary foods – parents can designate a ‘sweetie day’ where children have treats once a week. It is also very important that parents don’t pass on their fears of the dentist. Years ago it might have hurt to have a filling but dentistry has come on leaps and bounds and nowadays there is no excuse for avoiding the dentist. Parents should be taking advantage of NHS dentists – there are plenty about- and booking their children in for regular check-ups. Not only will their children end up having their teeth for longer and the benefits of that, they will also have an education and that is a legacy they will pass onto the next generation. However, we feels very passionately about the need to instill these practices in children from a young age and as an extension of her job as an Orthodontic Specialist at the dentist, Dr Dental has been into several schools to talk about dental hygiene as part of their PSHE programme. The children respond very positively to an outside expert rather than just their teacher or parent telling them and the class forum encourages interaction amongst the children. It also serves as an insight into dentistry as a possible career for children. To conclude, education starts at home and if parents supervise the ways their children brush their teeth from a young age, they will reap the benefits in later life. As a parent, you have a duty and the responsibility of reinforcing the importance of brushing, whilst limiting the amount of sugar in their children’s diet. However, this is a subject that eleven feels strongly about and as highlighted

Keep smiling Here at The Dental Surgery we believe in tailoring treatment to suit your individual situation and needs, we consider your dental health along with your desired results to plan the best treatment for you. As medical professionals, we place emphasis on prevention and early intervention. One of the diseases we are determined to prevent is tooth decay (cavities). If we spot tooth decay (a cavity), we aim to prevent progression by removing the decayed part of the tooth and replacing it with a restorative dental material. The choice of material is based largely on the size of the cavity, smaller cavities can be filled with a direct filling material placed in a single visit while larger cavities may require a coverage restoration (such as a crown) which protects the tooth from further fracture. Fillings are mostly used to restore the natural shape and function of teeth that display minor erosion due to decay (cavities).  If left untreated, cavities can lead to infections or an abscess of the tooth, and even multiple tooth loss. When a tooth has become functionally compromised and is likely to breakdown or fracture despite our best efforts with a filling material, then a crown may be the best option for the tooth.  The advantage of a crown is that the entire tooth is protected and stabilised.  Modern materials and our talented technicians allow us to create or recreate the desired aesthetics to a phenomenal degree of accuracy not only in terms of shape but also colour. When a tooth is missing and the adjacent teeth need to be crowned (see crown section) then it may be that a bridge which is supported by the adjacent teeth is the best way to replace the missing tooth. If one or more teeth are missing, or if the structure of the tooth is severely compromised, you may be a suitable candidate for dental implants as they offer more stability and a better prognosis than conventional treatments in such situations.
