4 reasons to visit our dentist

When we experience a toothache or some kind of discomfort in our mouths, the first thing we do is ring the dentist Richmond and book the first available appointment. Would you have the same reaction to discoloured teeth or misaligned teeth? How about when looking into dermal fillers? There are plenty of treatments that we offer that our patients are unaware of, meaning it is completely normal to bypass the idea that our dentist Richmond can help you with more than removing a tooth and root canals. Here at Sheen Dental, we believe that a beautiful smile can change your life. With so much pressure put on that first impression, help us give you a smile you can be confident and happy in.

In this short article, our dentist Richmond will talk you through four of the most common reasons to visit us here at our dental clinic and show how we can help.


Discoloured teeth


If you’re a smoker or enjoy things like coffee and dark coloured foods, you might have noticed that over time your teeth have lost the bright, white shine that many people are fond of. This can also happen over time, no matter how rigorous your dental hygiene routine actually is. Perhaps your teeth had never been particularly white, but you know that you deserve it. When it comes to teeth whitening treatment, we want you to have options with how it takes place. This means that you can have the shades of your teeth lifted during a one-hour session at our dental clinic, or take our whitening gel home to do it yourself. With the at-home whitening option, we will give you detailed instructions to follow, so you don’t have to worry about doing something wrong.


Misaligned teeth


When you were younger, you might have noticed that your teeth were not straight, but nothing was ever done about it. That usually means that when you become an adult, it is up to you to get the straight teeth you deserve. Using Invisalign, a clear aligner alternative, you can get straight teeth just by using uniquely made trays and swapping them out when the time is right. You don’t have to come into the clinic to get braces adjusted as you would with traditional teeth-straightening methods, but can rather follow our instructions and allow your teeth to move subtly into the correct position.


Missing teeth


There are a number of reasons why you might lose your teeth, ranging from injury and trauma to gum disease and simply getting old. When you do lose a tooth, though, the impacts can be quite hard to live with, both physically and emotionally. Our dental implants can offer you artificial teeth that look and act exactly like your real ones! Having the artificial crown matched to the shade and shape of your real teeth means that you can go about your day as usual, and nobody will even know. The implants even improve bone and tissue growth in your mouth.


Sensitive teeth


Having sensitive teeth can quite easily be overlooked, especially if you only notice it when eating or drinking cold and hot things. It is important to come and see us when you notice the sharp sensations, however, as we never want you to be in pain, especially where your teeth are concerned!
