Whether you are seeing us for cosmetic dental treatment or routine dental care, we believe that you deserve focussed attention. We make every effort to make your dental experience, one that exceeds your expectations.
Our general dental services include:
Our aim is to help you maintain a healthy mouth and therefore during your routine dental examination, we check your teeth, gums and soft tissue for early signs of any dental problems, such as decay or gum disease. Our soft tissue screening includes a visual check of your gums, inner cheeks and tongue which allows us to spot any infections, mouth conditions or even mouth cancer at the earliest stages.
At this appointment we may take photographs of your teeth to understand your dental concerns. In addition, we may take x-rays which help with diagnosis and treatment planning or we may take impressions of your teeth (study model) so that we can see how your teeth bite together.
If you are in need of dental treatment in an emergency, then emergency appointments are available on the day. We also carry a range of antibiotics on site, can make referrals to appropriate specialists and can keep your dentist informed of any treatment you have had with us.
Should your dental emergency occur whist you are travelling abroad, we are always available to give advice over the telephone and e-mail any digital x-rays and records that may help you.
New technological advancements in dentistry enable white (composite or resin) or natural tooth coloured fillings to be used in restoring decayed and broken teeth. White fillings are very strong and long lasting. We also use white fillings to replace mercury (silver) fillings.
Inlays and onlays are an alternative treatment option to fillings and are used to repair a damaged tooth. An inlay is small and within the biting surface of the tooth whereas an onlay will cover a larger area of the tooth.
These restorations can be made from porcelain, gold or composite resin and are bonded to the damaged area of a tooth. Inlays and onlays are made in a laboratory and will require two visits to the practice.
Most patients have a porcelain inlay or onlay as it hard wearing, long lasting and can also be matched to the colour of your natural teeth, to give you a perfectly beautiful smile with great dental health and function.
We routinely carry out the removal of problematic teeth. We may need to remove a tooth if decay has destroyed enough tooth structure that restoring the tooth is no longer possible.
Teeth may also need to be removed for orthodontic (braces) treatment.
In addition, with wisdom teeth, we may need to remove these teeth if
- they are not able to come through into the correct position
- there is not enough room
- they are causing some pain or discomfort
- they have only partly come through and are decayed
- they are painful
Care for Dental Phobics
For many patients, a visit to the dentist can create anxiety that is so severe that they will go for years without having a dental examination. Such patients often end up in extreme pain as they have not seen a dentist for many years and consequently may now need extensive dental treatment.
Patients' anxiousness over treatment is an important factor that we carefully consider when you visit our practice. At Sparkle, we take time to identify patients' feelings and the source of their fear. What information is shared is taken seriously and handled with great care, understanding and empathy. We provide as much information about any dental treatment that you need and make appointments, in easy, comfortable visits.
We are also committed to using 'talk' plus local anaesthesia rather than more extensive, drug-oriented methods, to help remove any anxiety and fear.
Here at Sparkle Dental Boutique our main concern is your oral health and we encourage regular check-ups to maintain the good condition of your teeth. Our general dentistry treatments are available to all patients and its surrounding boroughs such as Hounslow and Brentford, so if you need a check-up please book a consultation with one of our dental practitioners.
