TOOTH WHITENING

Over time our teeth absorb stains from tea, coffee, red wine, smoking and many other sources which all have a tremendously ageing effect on the teeth.

At Trinity House Dental Care our tooth whitening is provided by Diane Rochford an internationally recognised speaker with extensive experience in tooth whitening. She is a member of the British Dental Bleaching Society. We are fortunate in having Kathryn Jones as a member of our team. She is a dental therapist who also enjoys tooth whitening.

There is no better way to rejuvenate one’s smile than by safe, effective professional tooth-whitening.

We offer both home whitening using custom made trays or in-surgery whitening using the ZOOM system (as seen on the TV programme “Ten Years Younger”).

We would be happy to discuss the most suitable method for you.

HYGIENIST

At Trinity House Dental Care the emphasis is on prevention. This starts with our hygienist painlessly and carefully removing the hard and soft deposits that build up on the teeth which if left can cause gum disease and tooth decay. You will be shown the best way to look after your teeth and given a home care routine specifically tailored to your needs. This may include the use of an electric toothbrush, dental floss, interdental brushes, mouthwashes or desensitising agents.

These simple steps will contribute to your ongoing dental health.

STAIN REMOVAL

We have the latest stain removal technology which painlessly and safely uses a fine jet of powder to remove stubborn stains without damaging enamel.

COSMETIC DENTISTRY

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, no matter how minor, then there are many ways in which we can transform your smile. It is always so satisfying to see the improvement in a person’s well-being and confidence when unsightly teeth are transformed into a beautiful, natural smile.

VENEERS

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain used to treat teeth which have worn, chipped or damaged enamel. Expertly crafted, they mimic all the natural beauty of real teeth and once bonded onto the tooth will look good for many years.

CROWNS

Crowns are used to restore the appearance of teeth that are heavily repaired or are in danger of fracturing. They can be used to reposition or reshape teeth and improve their appearance.

Traditionally crowns were made with metal cores but we are increasingly using cores made from ceramic or zirconium, which have a more natural appearance. When fitted a crown should look and feel like a natural tooth.

Crowns

This patient was unhappy with his unsightly old crowns which had exposed margins. Four natural looking all ceramic crowns transformed his smile.

BRIDGEWORK

A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Crowns on the adjacent teeth are permanently joined to the replacement teeth. In addition to restoring the appearance of your smile the bridgework can stabilise the bite and prevent unwanted tooth movement in the remaining teeth.

TOOTH COLOURED RESTORATION

Old unsightly mercury amalgam fillings can be replaced with beautiful, bonded tooth-coloured restorations. We have not used mercury amalgam for more than ten years and we always use a rubber dam so that old amalgam fillings can be removed safely.

COMPOSITE BUILD UPS

Where your smile is compromised by unsightly teeth it can be readily enhanced by the use of natural, tooth coloured composite build ups. This treatment can usually be carried out in a single visit and doesn’t involve the removal of healthy tooth tissue.

Composite Build Up

This patient had worn and irregular teeth. Her smile was restored with direct composite, no drilling and no removal of sound tooth was required. She was delighted with the result.

MIGRAINE AND PERSISTENT HEADACHES

If you are one of the estimated 8 million adults in the UK who regularly suffer from migraines and headaches, then you might be grinding or clenching your teeth at night. We may be able to help alleviate these problems and so reduce your headaches. If you are interested in relieving symptoms associated with these habits and reducing the need for medication please ask for more details about treatment options.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth. They can offer an alternative to bridgework and avoid the need to crown adjacent teeth. Implants restore teeth to their natural function and appearance and remove the permanent inconvenience of dentures.
