What are some examples of a dental emergency?


There are a few different problems that may cause you to need to contact our emergency dentist in West Byfleet. Generally, if you experience any type of pain in your mouth or gums for more than 48 hours, and your pain isn’t relieved by painkillers, this is when it is usually recommended to contact us. There are more specific reasons as to why you may need an emergency appointment indicated below.


Knocked out tooth


Sometimes accidents can happen and you may knock a tooth out, this can be painful and worrying, and is definitely a valid reason to have an emergency appointment. If you happen to lose a tooth, there is risk of infection, and it can weaken the surrounding teeth. When you come in for your emergency appointment, we will deep clean the area and relieve your pain as much as possible, as well as extracting any fragments that may be left that could cause harm. If the lost tooth is in one piece and in good enough condition, we may be able to reattach it for you. If it’s not possible to reattach it, we will discuss your options to replace it.


Toothache


This is another situation where you may need to contact our emergency dentist in West Byfleet for an emergency appointment. Toothache can be extremely painful and debilitating, and can cause you to be unable to carry out your regular day-to-day activities, which is a big red flag. Toothache could mean that you have underlying problems with your teeth that you may not know about.


What happens in an emergency dental appointment?


No matter what the problem is that you’re having with your teeth, there are always a few basic steps that we perform in an emergency appointment.


The first step will be to carry out a thorough examination of the problem area, this could include scans or X-rays to get a deeper look at your teeth.


Depending on the severity of your pain, your dentist in West Byfleet can then numb the area with local anaesthetic, which will increase your comfort throughout the appointment.


The third step is for us to sterilise the area, as this can help to rid the teeth of bacteria and make sure that the area is as clean as possible to prevent any further infection.


If you have a damaged tooth, the fourth step would be to restore it temporarily or permanently, which all depends on your specific needs. We may also need to do an extraction if we can’t save the tooth. With cases to do with toothache, we will do all we can to find the cause of that pain and set up a treatment plan to help with this.

When you are looking for cosmetic treatments to improve your smile, Byfleet Dental Boutique is a great choice to make. Our qualified team takes pride in making you feel welcome and comfortable when you come to our practice, as well as in delivering you high quality treatments.

Which treatments do we offer?


We provide a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments to cater to our patients’ specific needs. Each treatment brings its own individual advantages and benefits, but in the end, the main goal is to improve the look of your teeth, therefore improving your confidence.


Teeth whitening


This is a simple treatment that helps to brighten the shade of your teeth, making them whiter, which can really help to improve your smile. Sometimes, even when you brush and floss regularly, your teeth can still become stained by certain foods you eat, discolouring drinks, smoking and more.


Here at Byfleet Dental Boutique, we use the Pola Whitening system, which helps to prevent staining from mainly beverages such as red wine, coffee or tea, as these are some of the main causes of discolouration. Firstly, your dentist in West Byfleet will assess your teeth to determine what type of staining you have on them. We will then create a custom tray that fits around your teeth, into which we will put a bleaching agent and this will be placed on your teeth for a set amount of time.


Veneers


Another popular cosmetic treatment that we offer at Byfleet Dental Boutique is that of porcelain veneers. These are great if you are looking for a way to make your teeth appear straighter, without using braces. To put it simply, a veneer is a tooth shaped piece of porcelain that your dentist in West Byfleet will attach to the front of your tooth. This can help with filling in small gaps, making your teeth appear longer, closer together, fuller and more even. You can choose how many teeth you have covered with the veneers, it can be one or a full set, it is up to you.


Invisalign


This is another option for our patients that straightens their natural teeth with the use of clear plastic aligners. These are custom-made to fit your teeth snugly and you are given sets of aligners at the beginning, which you will change around every 2 weeks from the comfort of your own home. Our patients love this treatment as the aligners are barely visible when you are wearing them, meaning that other people struggle to be able to tell that you have them in. The average treatment time for Invisalign is 6-12 months depending on your needs, and within this period you only need to visit our practice every 6-8 weeks, which is great for our patients with a busier schedule.


Inman aligners


Another cosmetic treatment that your dentist in West Byfleet can offer you are Inman aligners. We have several different types of fast discreet aligners at Byfleet Dental Boutique, but one of the most popular is the traditional Inman aligner. This uses a metal bar on the front and coil system, which is on the back of the teeth. This is great if you are looking for a more unobtrusive way to effectively straighten your smile.

If you are looking for a discreet way to straighten your smile, then here at Byfleet Dental Boutique, we can offer you the Invisalign treatment to help with this. Your dental boutique dentist in West Byfleet will take care of you and help you through the whole process, and make sure you are comfortable and knowledgeable about it before you begin. Invisalign has really helped our patients to efficiently and effectively straighten their teeth, with minimal discomfort.

How does it work?


Firstly, as with any dental treatment, we will have a consultation appointment with you so that we can discuss everything with you and take some scans. This meeting is vital in making sure that we can examine your teeth and ensure you are eligible before continuing. This is also a good opportunity for you to ask us any questions you may have regarding the treatment. We will take scans or X-rays to get a detailed picture of your teeth, which enables us to then create a precise plan for how your teeth will be straightened over time with each aligner.


Once you and your dentist in West Byfleet have completed the consultation appointment and you decide to go ahead with the treatment, we will send the scans to the dental laboratory where your customised aligners can be created. The aligners are made out of a thin, clear plastic that fits snugly around your teeth for added comfort.


When your aligners have been created, your dentist in West Byfleet will give them to you and then you can change each set from the comfort of your own home. We recommend that you wear the aligners for around 22 hours a day, which may sound like a while, but due to the soft, plastic material used, you will barely notice they are in. You can easily remove the aligners whenever you need to, which is very handy when it comes to eating. You can simply take your aligner out, eat whatever you want to, give your teeth a brush and pop them back in. It’s as simple as that! The average treatment time varies from 6 months to a year depending on your specific needs, and during this you will usually be changing your aligners every 2 weeks.


Here at Byfleet Dental Boutique, we take pride in creating a comfortable and sympathetic environment within our dental practice. When you choose to straighten your teeth, you want to use a dental practice that you can trust, and you can do just that here. Our team is dedicated to delivering treatments of the highest quality for you to enjoy.


What are the advantages?


When you choose Invisalign to straighten your smile, there are so many benefits for you to enjoy both during and after the treatment. One of the main ones being that due to the thin, clear plastic used, they are very discreet and other people will not even be able to tell that you have them in. This is great if you have a more sociable lifestyle/career and don’t want to draw added attention to your teeth. The comfort of these aligners is also a great benefit, as there is nothing metal or sharp used that could damage your mouth.
