We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality of patient care through appropriate dental treatment, patient education and personalised dental maintenance and preventive programs.

General dentistry services are probably the dental services that are used the most by patients, since this type of dentistry includes services such as tooth-coloured fillings, CEREC porcelain teeth, wisdom teeth removal, preventative dentistry, snoring solutions, root canal treatments, custom-made mouthguards and more. These dental services are executed by a dentist, although some complex treatments may require an oral surgeon. For example, when a patient visits our clinic for a more complicated wisdom teeth removal, an oral surgeon may have to execute the treatment. Still, patients do not have to go to hospital to get their wisdom teeth removed, since the Bond Street Dental Clinic has all the equipment a hospital has.

Of course, general dentistry is still only a part of the services provided at the Bond Street Dental Clinic, because patients can also visit our clinic for dental hygiene appointments and cosmetic dentistry. Dental hygiene appointments include all treatments that can be provided by our dental hygienist, which includes teeth whitening, teeth cleaning, polishing and providing advice on dental health products. Cosmetic dentistry on the other hand includes treatments for oral rehabilitation, which could restore the functioning as well as the aesthetics of the mouth. Therefore, patients can expect to find treatments such as dental implants, porcelain crowns, veneers and more under the umbrella of cosmetic dentistry. For more information about any of these services, please refer to the information pages available on the website.

The General Dentistry Services at Bond Street Dental

The Bond Street Dental Clinic offers patients a variety of services; this includes a wide range of general dentistry services. If you want to know more about our general dentistry services, please read the information provided by the Bond Street Dental team below.

Tooth-Coloured Fillings

One of the most common treatments executed at the Bond Street Dental is the treatment of cavities, which is usually tackled with fillings. There are different types of fillings nowadays; this includes composite and amalgam.

We do need to mention that amalgam fillings are not ideal for patient who want to keep their smile nice and bright, because amalgam fillings get quite dark. Therefore, dentists and patients will prefer to work with composite fillings, which blend with the natural colour of the teeth perfectly.

Patients with outdated amalgam fillings can also come to our clinic to get these older fillings replaced with newer composite fillings. With our CEREC machines, we can reproduce an exact copy of the old filling. Then, they are bonded to the tooth and you can enjoy a whiter and brighter smile!

CEREC Porcelain Teeth

We already mentioned one of the applications of our CEREC machine, more specifically changing older amalgam fillings for new composite fillings. Let us now take a closer look at the CEREC machine and its capabilities, since the availability of this special machine in our surgery could make a difference for many patients.

The CEREC machine is basically a professional milling unit that runs on special computerised software. With the machine, our team can create restorations that fit the natural tooth perfectly, not only where the cavity is concerned, but also where colour and appearance is concerned.

To create the perfect restoration for your tooth, the dentist will remove the older filling (if present) from the tooth first. Then, he will take small camera photographs of the cavity. Based on the photograph, the CEREC software creates the restoration on the screen. Then, the milling unit creates the restoration from a ceramic block.

Once the restoration is made, the dentist can bond it into position. When the restoration is bonded, he will also polish the tooth to create a smooth, natural appearance and feel.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth can often cause problems when they come out, so the removal of wisdom teeth is also a common procedure that is performed at our clinic. The most common reasons to remove wisdom teeth include tooth decay, gum infection, pressure pains, orthodontic reasons, prosthetic reasons and other problems such as cyst formation.

The Bond Street Dental Clinic is fully equipped to perform wisdom teeth removals. We have all the equipment that is available at the hospital and have experienced oral surgeons that can perform the more complicated procedures. Therefore, the Bond Street Dental Clinic could be the clinic you choose for a wisdom teeth removal procedure.

Preventative Dentistry

General dental services can tackle a dental problem that causes problems for the patient, but it could also prevent problems. An appointment with the dental hygienist is a good example of that, since regular appointments with your dental hygienist can prevent quite some problems in the future.

Firstly, a dental hygienist can give a patient’s teeth a professional clean; this means the removal of plaque from the surface of the teeth. The dental hygienist can also provide the patient with recommendations where oral hygiene products are concerned, which could include toothpaste, mouthwash, floss and more.

The dental hygienist could also be the advised person to see when you experience problems such as gum disease and bad breath. By making some changes in your oral hygiene routine and see your dental hygienist for a regular clean, many patient can manage or eliminate these problems completely.

Snoring Solutions

Our clinic can provide solutions for snoring as well, which includes a custom-made mouthguard. In addition to snoring, the custom-made mouthguard could also provide a solution for mild sleep apnoea, so this service could prove quite valuable to many patients.

The custom-made mouthguard from the Bond Street Dental Clinic comes with many benefits as well. Since the mouthguard is made specifically for the patient, it always feels comfortable and it could improve the patient’s sleeping quality. The mouthguard is specifically designed to minimise disruption for oral functions, which includes speech, drinking and yawning.

When you acquire one of our custom mouthguards, patients must keep their mouthguard in good condition. Your dentist can provide you with all the information needed to do that, but you will also have to make an appointment at the Bond Street Dental in the future to get your custom-made mouthguard checked.

Root Canal Treatment

Another common treatment executed at our clinic is the root canal treatment, a treatment that tackles an infection of the dental pulp. When a patient suffers from this condition, they could experience problems such as increased sensitivity to hold and cold foods, pain when biting down, pain that radiates to another area such as the neck, temple and ear.

During a root canal treatment, the dentist will remove the diseased pulp. Then the treated area is sterilised and sealed, so no bacteria can enter the area again and cause another infection.

Bruxism

The Bond Street Dental Clinic also creates mouthguards for teeth grinding, a condition also known under the name bruxism. When a patient suffers from bruxism, they also experience other symptoms such as headaches, pain behind the eyes, sore jaw muscles and chipped teeth. So, acquiring one of our custom-made mouthguards could protect the patient’s teeth and alleviate some of those symptoms.

There are other custom-made mouthguards available at the Bond Street Dental Clinic. These could be used for other purposes such as sleep apnoea, protecting the teeth during contact sports and much more. If you wish to learn more about these mouthguards, please refer to the information pages or contact the Bond Street Dental Clinic.
