Time for a touch up?

Here at the Dental Care Centre, a misspent youth means too many sugary drinks and a failure to clean and floss teeth properly! As a result, in adulthood, many of us are likely to experience dental decay in our front teeth.

Whilst these dental cavities may have been filled, they can still appear unnatural. They are often a poor colour match and further discoloured by staining or other deterioration. As a result,  front teeth appear patchy and we become more self-conscious about our smile, especially on photographs, special occasions or those important customer-client meetings.

Time for an effective, confidence-boosting touch-up! With the proper care, attention to detail and the use of quality materials, modern tooth-coloured fillings can be completely invisible and a perfect match to your teeth. Modern layer dental composites, if placed knowledgeably with respect to natural aesthetics by an experienced clinician, can give your smile back its wow factor (and perhaps go some way in addressing that misspent youth!).

Working under high magnification and with a gentle attention to detail that provides stunning results (click to see our Gallery page), trust The Dental Care Centre to restore a beautiful smile! Get in touch with us to book your no-obligation consultation and start to feel young again!

P.S. We are going to ask you to avoid sugary drinks and to brush and floss regularly – there are some things that never change however old we get!


National Smile Month

National Smile Month, running from  mid- May to mid-June, is an oral health initiative from by the British Dental Health Foundation. With its commitment to improving oral health within the general population, here at The Dental Care Centre we are proud to support and promote this campaign amongst our own patients at the practice.

This year’s campaign of ‘Teeth4Life’ highlights the importance of looking after your teeth and maintaining them for life. Take part yourself and encourage family and friends to join in by simply following their ‘bread and butter’ principles for great oral health:

  • Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
  • Quit smoking to help reduce the chances of tooth staining, gum disease, tooth loss, and in more severe cases mouth cancer.
  • Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.

Start today and see for yourself the difference a great smile can make!
