Dental implants are, understandably, a bit of an investment in both time and money for some patients. However, they’re also a reliable facet of modern dentistry. Tooth replacement has been a treatment practiced for years and literally centuries, but after all this time and development are dental implants worth it? Is it worth filling the gaps in your smile, and are dental implants necessary?
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to Invisalign open day on Saturday the 17th of November between 9-5pm.
On the day our dentist Dr Christian Pintado is offering a complimentary consultation on the Invisalign system. He will be able to fully assess your teeth and advise as how long the Invisalign treatment should take. The treatment could be anywhere from 3 months to 18 months, depending on the complexity.
We may be a dental practice full of impeccable dentists in South-West London, but we’re so much more than that too. We’re dental implant specialists, we’re dental hygienists, and we’re also trained in the administration of facial aesthetics. We’ve explored the fact that we offer dermal fillers in a previous blog post, which restore beautiful volume to areas of the face, and we also provide wrinkle relaxing injections. There’s one more thing we just have to mention though: we also provide an impeccable skin treatment called Dermaroller. Discover the benefits of Dermaroller, and what the treatment actually is.
If you are what you eat, then so are your teeth! There’s so much more to effective dental hygiene and white teeth than just brushing, flossing, and professional treatments. These are great, but it’s important to carry forwards the same effort we put into your teeth yourself by maintaining proper at-home care. This means watching what you introduce your teeth to in the forms of food and drink, because there are some heroes and villains when choosing what to snack on. We believe in sharing knowledge with our patients, so you can look after your teeth before any traumas occur, so you can enjoy a happy and healthy relationship with your teeth. These are the best and worst foods for white teeth! Read More…
Yes, dental phobia is very real. We know dental appointments aren’t the most fist-clenchingly exciting way to spend an hour, but there are plenty of people that actively avoid it because they’re scared. We understand this nervousness, we’ve dedicated a whole page to how we aim to make you more comfortable, but we’d also hate to think that people are missing out on essential dentistry. We want all of our patients to have tip-top dental health, so they can eat, smile, and talk with all of the confidence and comfortability in the world, which is why we make special provisions for those who are a little more nervous. At Crescent Lodge Dental Practice, we support all manner of patients, nervous or not.
We’re not all naturally blessed with great shaped and coloured teeth. That’s just natural and simple biology, and a lot of the smiles we aspire to in the media have had some form of professional dentistry to aid their ascent. Stars like Demi Moore and Tom Cruise received have veneers, for example, with Moore even wearing a denture for some time due to losing her front teeth. We’re all human and all made individually, so sometimes we need a little helping hand to give us the teeth and the smile we’d really like. But how do veneers work?
Have you ever had a headache that seems to come from nowhere, or occur for no discernible reason?

It could be your teeth causing your headaches.
