Mayhill Open Day – Saturday 18th May read more

An open day is a great opportunity. On one hand we want to show off and market our new practice and on the other it provides patients with an opportunity to meet us and find out what we are all about.

We really enjoy meeting patients with our gloves off! It gives us a chance to discuss dental problems and anxieties in an informal way. This can be the first step for many patients who are not enthusiastic attendees or who have worries or concerns over treatment they have received in the past.

At our first open day our team will be on hand to give demonstrations and advice on all aspects of dental health targeted at all age groups. Question and answer sessions will be given by David Guppy and Cameron Currie specifically related to dental implants, cosmetic dentistry and almost invisible orthodontics. Our Dermatologist, Louise Hull will also be available for informal consultations on facial aesthetics.

You will be very welcome to tour the practice and see for yourself the standards we are setting ourselves. We will be offering very special offers on home bleaching and our membership plans.

Please come along and join us. Complimetary bubbly and nibbles will be on offer.

Tooth whitening-the facts! read more

The most common cause of dark or yellow teeth is smoking, red wine and tannic acid in tea and coffee. Teeth also darken naturally as we age. Surface staining can be removed by a hygienist but this is usually transient and in time the staining returns. The same is true of whitening tooth pastes which can be very expensive but have a negligible effect on the colour of teeth.

Tooth whitening or bleaching as prescribed by a dentist can remove the intrinsic nature of the discolouration and dramatically whiten your smile. The process is well tested and safe when provided by a dental professional.

Broadly speaking there are two techniques. In surgery whitening, which often involves a modified light or laser, has fallen out of favour. The use of trays and home bleaching is far more reliable but does take longer. The Enlighten system guarantees the B1 natural white shade. It achieves this with very low concentrations of the bleaching agent with little or no sensitivity. The trays are constructed to bleach the whole tooth. The fade back is very slow and foodstuffs or drinks seem to have very little or no effect.
