Overview

Dentist in Chippenham

At London Road Dental Practice Chippenham, our Dentists aim to provide the best high quality predictable dental care in a relaxed environment for patients of all ages in Chippenham and Wiltshire in general. The Practice also receive referrals from practices in Chippenham, Calne, Melksham, Bath and Malmesbury for specialist treatments. We are registered with the General Dental Council and part of the British Dental Association Good Practice Award Scheme. We are predominantly a private practice with a very small NHS contract.

Patients that are apprehensive of dental treatment have found our friendly manner welcoming, putting everyone at ease. In addition, the surgery ceiling televisions with relaxing themes are a welcome distraction making the treatments seem to finish a lot quicker.

Our view is that we treat our patients as individuals (and as how we would like to be treated). Our findings and treatment options will be clearly explained in plain English to make it easier to understand.

Without this, we feel you are unable to make decisions that you are comfortable with and that are cost effective.

In addition to general dentistry, implants, periodontal (gum) treatment and sedation, we also offer a range of other cosmetic dental services such as tooth whitening and orthodontics. Our dental membership plan makes quality dentistry very affordable and easy to budget for with transparent costs. 

We give a detailed treatment estimate and use high quality materials and products taking our time to produce lasting results. As a preventative practice, we allow patients from other practices to see our dental hygienists directly for their dental hygiene treatment under the direct access scheme. 

It’s your mouth and we would like you to know what is happening and all the available options to give you a beautiful and healthy smile. We aim and strive to be the best dentists in Chippenham 🙂

Tooth Whitening

At London Road Dental Practice Chippenham we find that home tooth whitening works very well using low dose whitening agents to keep any sensitivity to a minimum. It takes approximately 2-3 weeks after the trays have been constructed.

We supply you with everything that you need to make teeth whitening as straight forward as possible. Our teeth whitening solutions do not damage teeth and has been found to be very predictable. A top up for a few days may be required every 6 months or so.
Teeth whitening is often a better solution than veneers or crowns to whiten teeth.

 

The British Dental Association give the following statement on Tooth Whitening:

1. Whitening is safe

If carried out by a trained dental professional, whitening is perfectly safe. Based on their knowledge of your oral health your dentist will discuss with you the options available, decide if tooth whitening is appropriate for you and develop an overall treatment plan that gives the desired result.

You’ll get to see on a chart what shade your teeth are before the treatment and what shade you’re likely to achieve. At the end of the treatment the dentist will show you the actual result so you can understand how effective it was. You will also see when you look in the mirror!

2. Only trained dental professionals can whiten teeth

It is illegal for anyone other than dentists or their teams to carry out teeth whitening. Anyone else offering teeth whitening (e.g. beauticians, hairdressers, and salon staff) won’t have the right training and knowledge, could permanently damage your teeth and gums and can’t help you when something goes wrong.

3. The preferred option

Whitening won’t remove the surface of your teeth or change their shape. It’s often a better option than alternatives, such as veneers, because it doesn’t involve permanently altering the tooth’s structure and is easy to look after.

4. Selecting the right option for you

Your dentist is trained to know what whitening products will be safe for your teeth and gums. Products provided by non-dentists often do not have enough safety data and evidence to support their use; this can result in burned gums and/or blistered lips or even more serious consequences. Using products that are not appropriate for you will produce poor results.

5. How it works

A carefully-controlled concentration of bleach is applied to your teeth using specially-made trays that fit in your mouth. Your dentist will be able to discuss with you the level of whitening you want and give you an idea of how many treatments you may need to achieve the shade you’re after.

Like hair and skin, teeth vary in colour. Some are yellower or darker than others, even when they are quite healthy. Teeth tend to get darker as people get older. Teeth sometimes become darker if their roots have been damaged or diseased and the ‘nerve’ has died.

6. What to expect

You may experience some sensitivity for a short time during your treatment but this is normal and will soon fade away after completion. 

7. Over the counter kits might not be safe

The products you can buy online or from high street shops often fail to declare the precise chemicals used so it’s very difficult to assess their safety. Because of this they should not be considered safe. These products won’t produce the same good results you can expect by visiting your dentist.

Tooth colour can be lightened with Hydrogen Peroxide (bleach) and how strong the dose needs to be will be decided by your dentist.

Decay caused by lactose

If we could give one important piece of advice is DO NOT put your baby to bed with a bottle of milk or juice when your child starts getting their teeth! Lactose is a natural sugar found in milk. Sugar in any form (including natural sugars) can lead to tooth decay.
