Over the years we have built a great reputation within the local area for providing an excellent level of general dental care, as we receive a large amount of referrals through “word of mouth” from our existing patients, which we are very proud of.

We strive to provide the highest level of care at all times, so that we can help our patients achieve and maintain dental health.

INTERESTED IN VENEERS?

Dental veneers are made of thin porcelain, they are often used to cover dark teeth, worn teeth or slightly misaligned teeth, to give a smile a straighter, whiter appearance.

Many patients who are interested in improving the aesthetics of their smiles often select veneers. We can match the shade of the new veneers to the existing tooth colour, or we can whiten all of the teeth beforehand and then match them with a whiter veneer.

In order to place veneers, the dentist will have to prepare the underlying tooth surface, by removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface of the teeth, so that the new veneer can be bonded on top of this.

Our Dentist’s here at Chestnut smile Centre are highly skilled in placing dental veneers. Treatment can usually take two weeks from start to finish.

IMPLANT DENTISTRY

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Implants look and feel just like your own teeth.

*Implants preserve the integrity of facial structures.

*Better health and nutrition because you can eat what you want.

*Ease of cleaning.     *Enjoy your food.

*Eliminates the embarrassment of loose fitting dentures.

*Eliminates the pain of ill-fitting dentures.

SMILE MAKEOVERS

Whatever it is that a patient may not like about their smile, our Dentist’s will listen to their concerns and be able to provide them with a range of treatment options to help improve their smile and give them the smile they have always dreamed of.

So whether a patient has no teeth, missing teeth, wobbly teeth, stained teeth, crooked or misaligned teeth, bleeding gums, or old crowns and veneers that they are no longer happy with, we can help.

An initial assessment appointment will be required with one of our Dentist’s, so that they can start the smile design process. This will usually involve a full examination of teeth and gums, X-Rays, and clinical photographs. The dentist will use this information to individually tailor a unique smile makeover design just for you.

Our dentists here are highly skilled in this area and love creating new smiles for people, it is very often a life changing moment for many of our patients.

Please contact our reception team for further information.

At Chestnut Smile Centre we are able to provide our patients with complete smile makeovers.

Most patients who seek out this kind of treatment, are often embarrassed by their smiles, or lack confidence in social situations because of their teeth.

A completed dental implant has a crown, which replicates the appearance of the enamel coating of the surrounding natural teeth. The crown is fixed to an abutment, or post, the equivalent of the dentine core. The post is attached to the titanium implant, which is anchored to the jaw bone and acts as the root of the replacement tooth.

Shortly thereafter, a crown is made to fit on top of the implant so as to replace a missing tooth or teeth with a “brand-new” tooth. In many cases, you can be functioning on your “new” tooth in as little as 6 weeks.

What is a dental implant?

All natural teeth have a dentine core, surrounded by an enamel coating, and are anchored in the jaw by their roots.

Multiple Missing Teeth

Most people seek advice as they are having problems with several teeth, not just one single missing tooth. When replacing several teeth not every tooth needs to have an implant to support it.

Typically, if 4 teeth are missing, 2 implants are used to support a 4 tooth bridge. If one is presenting with no teeth, we replace the entire set with 4-6 implants.

SEDATION

Dental Sedation for nervous patients

As Dental Professionals, we understand that patients may suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia, which prevents them from having the confidence to access dental treatment they may require.

We are aware that it may have been years since a patient last visited the Dentist because of this. At Chestnut Smile Centre, Dr Elise Walker-Coyle is able to provide our nervous patients with sedation, so that we can make your dental visits with us as calm and comfortable as possible for you.

Here at Chestnut Smile Centre we have helped many patients overcome their fears over the years and enabled them to smile with confidence again.
