We offer a complete range of cosmetic dental treatments to improve the aesthetics of your smile.
Create your dream smile with our cosmetic dental treatments - from veneers and composite bonding to teeth whitening and teeth straightening, including Invisalign.
Crowns and Veneers
Crowns and Veneers are made in an offsite laboratory and help to restore teeth that cannot be fixed with just a filling or if a tooth is very broken down. There are private options available. Crowns can be constructed in different materials and this will be discussed with you at your appointment.
A crown may be offered to you on the NHS if a tooth can only be restored appropriately with one. Private options are available should you just wish to change the appearance of your tooth/teeth.
Crowns and veneers are only available after a thorough examination of your tooth which usually includes a pre-operative X-Ray. A dentist must assess that your dentition is clinically sound and your oral health is good prior to placing a crown.
Professional Teeth Whitening
We provide Philips Zoom! which can whiten your teeth up to 6 shades in 1 hour.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice when you greet them. However, if it’s not as healthy or as white as you would like, you might find yourself not wanting to smile…
Choosing a whitening treatment, that can either be provided by a member of our dental team, or via an at home kit that we stock, you can be assured of powerful yet safe results. We use Philips Zoom! which can create a dramatic difference in the whiteness of your teeth in just one visit.
Prior to treatment your dental professional will examine your teeth to ensure that the products are suitable for you.
Then they will take an impression of your teeth so customised whitening trays can be created for you to take home with you after the fourth treatment. Each session lasts about one hour, however the initial consultation may take up to two hours.
Your dental professional will place a soft silicone mouth guard into your mouth to protect your gums, cheeks and lips and ensure the whitening solution can be applied safely and comfortably
They will then apply the product to your teeth and activate the lamp, so the gel gets to work whitening your teeth
You can then relax for 15 minutes while the procedure occurs
You will need 4 of these sessions
At-home Teeth Whitening
Using Zoom! whitening at home involves an initial dental appointment in order to produce your customised whitening trays.
Your dentist will talk to you about what you hope to achieve from your tooth whitening and check that the products are suitable for you to use. They will take an impression of your teeth so customised take home whitening trays can be created for you. The clinician will check that the trays fit and are comfortable before showing you how to apply the Zoom! Gels of your choice.
You will leave the surgery will all that you need to begin your home whitening journey. With Philips Zoom! take-home, when used as instructed, you will achieve great results within 1-2 weeks, depending on the concentration of formula and wear time you select.
At School Road Dental we have a variety of options to help align crooked teeth, from minor overlaps to cases of severe crowding. Whether you have had braces before and need to correct some changes or if it’s your first time aligning your teeth we will be able to help you find your best smile.
The foundation for a great smile starts with well aligned, symmetrical teeth. Whether you are at work or out with friends, a great smile boosts your confidence, makes you feel happier and creates a great first impression.
We offer clear tray aligners through Smilelign®, Invisalign® and SmileTru® systems allowing our experienced clinicians to choose the most cost effective and appropriate system for your case. Clear aligners can give you the smile you want without the use of ugly metal train track braces. They are virtually invisible and require no long visits to the orthodontist.
Treatment starts with a visit to your dentist who will take a 3D scan of your teeth. This scan is then used to digitally manoeuvre the teeth into a well aligned position. If you wish to proceed then a series of thin clear trays are 3D printed to help guide your teeth from their current position to your new smile.
Each aligner is minutely different, moving your teeth in gradual stages to their new positions.
Treatment can be really quick, with most cases being under 12 months and many under 6 months.
Some people dislike the freedom that clear trays provide and have trouble with the insertion and removal of the trays. For those cases we also offer cosmetic fixed orthodontics through the CFast® system.
These are clear brackets with a white wire which are fixed to the teeth. This guarantees an even force to move teeth reliably and quickly into position. The clear brackets are barely visible at a glance and are far removed from the metal brackets you may have had previously.
If that is a concern we can also offer lingual braces – where metal brackets are placed on the tongue side of the teeth, hiding them completely when you talk and smile.
Treatment times are similar to clear aligners – with simple cases being completed in 3-6 months as even more complex movements taking no more than 1 year.
