Cosmetic Dentistry

Are you confident with your smile? Would you like to enhance your appearance with perfect, even, white teeth? We at Grants House can provide you with all the possible options available and find which is right for you.

The following patient was unhappy with what dentistry had previously offered him, as you can see from the following photos. His teeth were initially whitened as they had been discoloured due to antibiotics taken as a child. Using an orthodontic brace the teeth were repositioned so two bridges could be made to replace the missing teeth. One discoloured crown was replaced and this was the result, which he was very happy with as it looked so natural.

Tooth Whitening

All teeth darken as the natural ageing process occurs. Few would disagree that a whiter smile lifts your appearance. It is proven to be a highly effective, safe and simple technique.

Preventive Dentistry

Prevention is better than cure. Our aim is to provide you with all the necessary information and treatment that will help you maintain your teeth for life. From a diet analysis to prevent further decay, or a visit to our hygienist, simple steps can make a huge impact in preventing future problems.

Replacing Missing Teeth

With today’s modern materials and techniques we can replace teeth that are lost. Implants are now considered the treatment of choice as a long term means of giving back the confidence of your original smile. A bridge or denture are other alternatives that you may wish to consider. All are available and we would suggest you discuss this with your dentist to find out which is right for you.

Barry Awan placed an implant to replace a missing upper molar tooth, as the patient was unhappy that he showed a gap when smiling.

Gum Disease

The majority of teeth are lost due to gum disease. It is responsible for bleeding gums and bad breath. Healthy gums are the foundations for healthy teeth. That is why we recommend regular visits to one of our hygienists. A hygienist can treat these problems, as well as instructing you on the most effective techniques to prevent its recurrence.

Childrens Teeth

Good habits start young. We have qualified dental health educators to teach your child the best method of keeping their teeth clean. Plastic coatings (fissure sealants) can be painted on the teeth to help prevent decay. Dietry advice and good tooth brushing technique are vital for future oral health.

Orthodontics

We can straighten your teeth here at the practice. As well as treating children, many adults who may have missed the opportunity earlier in life choose to have orthodontic treatment now. Andrew Richards who has been working at the Royal United Hospital Orthodontic Department for many years will be able to assess you or your child’s suitability for treatment.

NHS orthodontics is available for qualifying cases. Private orthodontics patients can have their costs spread over the course of treatment.

This was a case carried out at the practice by Andrew which you can see the patient is very happy with.

Anxious Patients

Are you missing out on the smile you always wanted due to anxiety caused by the prospect of having dental treatment. We can offer you inhalation or intravenous sedation. Both have the ability to completely relax you, soothing away fears that may have prevented a visit to the dentist in the past.
