In fact, we are committed to constantly updating our knowledge of the latest techniques and treatments and all of our staff complete hours of continuing professional development to do so, every year.

Dental implants

If you have a missing tooth, several missing teeth, or even a whole set, we can offer you a solution with dental implants. Dental implants simply need enough bone density in your jawbone and if you don’t have this, we may be able to do a bone graft. Dental implants are titanium screws which are attached to your jawbone and act as artificial roots for your replacement teeth, whether you are having crowns, bridges or dentures. The replacement teeth are firmly and securely fitted thanks to the titanium screws and are the closest thing to having your natural teeth. Once you have implants you can eat and drink whatever you choose, so there’s no need to worry about them loosening. Another bonus of having implants is that they are super easy to maintain; all you have to do is brush and floss regularly. Your replacement teeth won’t get cavities, but you still need to protect your gums!

If you think that dental implants may be a treatment you’d like to explore with us, why not book in for a consultation at our dental healthcare centre Stockton, where we can check your mouth to see if this is the right course of treatment for you and you can ask as many questions as you like – we love to show off our dental knowledge. We’re here for you and have a host of friendly staff ready to put you at your ease.

Teeth whitening

If your teeth need a little brightening up, here at our dental healthcare centre Stockton we offer a range of treatments to achieve this, depending on your dental needs. We will first do a screening and consultation to check out which treatment would suit you best and if you are eligible for treatment we will advise the right one for you. With any decision about treatment, you will be fully informed and we will explain everything to you whether or not you can receive treatment.

The treatments available are tray systems, Enlighten, and Zoom Power Whitening. With the gels used, they contain carbamide or hydrogen peroxide, rather than chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide can strip the surface of the teeth, whereas carbamide or hydrogen peroxide have been proven to be very safe after extensive testing. Trays are a home use kit that you wear and put the gel into; Enlighten has a choice of home whitening or a combination of home whitening and practice treatment; Zoom Power Whitening takes place in the practice and takes place in one appointment slot of 90 minutes. Keeping your smile bright should make you feel more confident and remove that weight off your shoulders about photographs of you smiling for the camera!
