Teeth whitening options

Are you looking for teeth whitening in Camden? Ace Dental can help. One of the popular choices with our patients is the Boutique whitening system. One of the many advantages of this system of teeth whitening in Camden is that once you have been provided with your personal teeth whitening trays, you can top up the whiteness of your teeth by purchasing top up whitening agent syringes from our practice, so your white new smile can last even longer.

How does teeth whitening work?

The active chemical in our teeth whitening agent is known as carbamide peroxide. This gel releases oxygen free radicals known to whiten the teeth over a longer period, due to its sustained release. This gradual approach will still give fantastic results for every patient, due the length of time the gel will stay active.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenWhy do teeth discolour?

Some people just have naturally darker teeth. Your teeth can also be stained on the surface by food and drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine. Smoking is also known to stain teeth. As well as these, tartar can also be detrimental to the colour of your teeth. Some people can even have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or by tiny cracks in the teeth, which allow stains to penetrate the tooth.

Are there side effects?

In a very small number of cases some of our patients may find that their teeth become sensitive during or after their teeth whitening in Camden. There could be discomfort in the gums, you might get a sore throat or tiny white patches on the gums. These symptoms are normally temporary and will disappear after a few days. The most frequent side effect is a small amount of sensitivity that your dentist at Ace Dental can help you with by applying a desensitising gel on your teeth.

I want a straighter smile

A straighter smile does look amazing, but some people will put off having teeth straightening treatments as they think it will be too costly, uncomfortable or time consuming. Some other people simply do not want to have to wear unsightly silver braces for months or even years. This is where braces in Camden at Ace Dental can help. We use a procedure called Quick Straight Teeth to offer an answer to these issues.

What is Quick Straight Teeth?

Braces in CamdenQuick Straight Teeth is a discreet tooth straightening system with options of either a fixed or removable brace made from clear materials. These braces in Camden have been developed to work specifically on the front six to eight teeth. Treatment prices are also a plus, as they can be more affordable than for similar types of braces in Camden. Straightening times range from four to 24 weeks, depending on the issues to be corrected.

Quick Straight Teeth fixed braces

Quick Straight Teeth fixed braces use clear brackets that are virtually invisible, combined with tooth-coloured wires. The use of fixed brackets helps to ensure tooth movement is highly predictable. Unlike conventional braces, there is no need for the wires to be extensively tightened. Instead, your braces in Camden apply gentle pressure to the teeth, meaning minimal discomfort, as only the front six to eight teeth are moved.

Am I suitable for Quick Straight Teeth?

Quick Straight Teeth will work best for our patients who have slightly protruding front teeth and mild overcrowding. Once your Quick Straight Teeth procedure is complete you will need to wear a retainer and attend regular check-ups with your dentist at Ace Dental, otherwise the teeth can begin to drift back towards their original positions.

If you are looking for a modern practice that is dedicated to ensuring that you remember your experience for all the right reasons, look no further then Ace Dental for your braces in Camden.

We are only content with the highest quality of dentistry and outstanding patient care. We are always improving our technology and knowledge to give the greatest patient standards possible.

Are you looking to revive your face?

Because of age, sun damage, worry, gravity and other environmental factors, our facial skin will begin to develop lines and wrinkles, which many people can find unattractive. Whilst this is a manifestation of the natural ageing of the skin, along with a reduction in the collagen of the skin, it is now possible to smooth out folds and wrinkles with our treatments in facial aesthetics in Camden at Ace Dental. We are very happy to be able to offer our patients dermal fillers or Botox to give a more relaxed and youthful appearance. With facial aesthetics in Camden you can turn back time to give you a younger, healthier look.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are substances that get injected beneath the skin’s surface to smooth wrinkles and add volume to the skin. They contain stabilised hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the cells of the skin. It works by drawing in water and therefore augmenting the skin, which will reduce the wrinkle treated.

Facial Aesthetics in CamdenBenefits of dermal fillers

Dermal fillers can help to ‘fill in’ facial indentations, add volume to your skin, smooth unwanted facial wrinkles and lines and help skin regain its youthful look in various areas of the face. As well as this, the injections are normally pain-free and only take a few minutes to perform. Improving your look with facial aesthetics in Camden really can be that easy.

The procedure

It may surprise you, but this is a simple and straight-forward procedure, involving a few tiny injections directly into the skin and takes just minutes, not hours. Make-up can even be applied immediately after the procedure and you can go straight back to work for the ultimate in convenience.

Results can be seen immediately and can last up a year. Optimal results can be maintained over a long period of time through regular repeated treatments at Ace Dental.

The procedure will vary from patient to patient, depending on your requirements and the depth of the wrinkles that are being treated.

It’s time to smile

Lots of people have lost at least one tooth, and here at Ace Dental we understand this can be very upsetting for our patients. Dental implants in Camden can offer a long-term solution for tooth replacement. Dental implants are often regarded as being the gold standard for replacing missing teeth.

So, what are dental implants?

Dental implants are a way of replacing a tooth root using a small titanium post that is inserted directly into the jawbone. This implant integrates with the bone, providing a strong and stable support for your new replacement crown.

Dental Implants in CamdenA special attachment is joined to the implant post and this supports the replacement crown. While single dental implants in Camden can be used to support up to three crowns, multiple dental implants can be used to support bridges and even complete dentures. This will provide results that are look natural and will also restore your mouth to full function once again.

Can I have dental implants?

Dental implants in Camden must be inserted into a certain amount of healthy jawbone. Unfortunately, bone loss can occur due to disease, or if teeth were lost quite some time ago. We can usually build up lost bone using grafts, or our implant dentists may be able to use a smaller dental implant that need less bone. When you come in for your initial consultation, our experienced implant dentists will be able to tell you if you are suitable for dental implants in Camden and can discuss the treatment options available to you.

Most of our patients with reasonable oral health will be able to have dental implants. Age is also not usually a problem as dental implants can be extremely useful for older people who struggle with loose or ill-fitting dentures.

Dental implants unfortunately may not be suitable for patients with uncontrolled diabetes or other diseases that can affect the immune system, or for heavy smokers, as these conditions can negatively impact healing and increase the chance of implant failure.

The longevity of dental implants makes the process extremely worthwhile. Dental implants from Ace Dental are the next best thing to natural healthy teeth.

The importance of being smiley

The one thing that people notice first about others when they meet is whether or not they smile. Smiling is hard-wired into us as a non-verbal communication of being friendly and peaceful, so if someone is not smiling, we tend to be a bit wary of them.

No one ever thinks, on meeting a non-smiler, ‘Oh poor thing, I wonder if they have got terrible teeth and are too embarrassed to show them’. We have more hard-wired reactions like, ‘Oh, they’re unfriendly’, or ‘I wonder why they’re angry’.

Not smiling a greeting can also be some kind of power play, like when the poor contestants go into the Dragons’ Den to present their business ideas and smile hello but get deadpan responses back.

Cosmetic Dentistry in CamdenBeing smiley makes such a huge difference to all our communications, from the important to the fleeting encounters, smiling smooths our way through each day. So to be too embarrassed by your teeth to smile is a big social handicap.

A helping hand for your smile

This is the reason why, in the last decade or two, cosmetic dentistry in Camden has become as popular as other forms of self-enhancement, such as haircuts, clothes, and shoes. Unlike the former, cosmetic dentistry treatments can last for years.

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment because it requires no alteration to the structure of the teeth. It can also be done at home with a DIY kit from us at Ace Dental in Camden.

Teeth whitening won’t get rid of all stains however, and that’s when people can use veneers or cosmetic bonding to cover up discolouration. Of the two, cosmetic bonding, when composite materials are moulded over the teeth, is cheaper and less invasive. That said, bonding is really only suitable for the biting teeth at the front. Teeth that are used for chewing need something sturdier, such as veneers. These porcelain sheaths are fitted onto the fronts of teeth that have had a very thin layer of enamel removed to create a rough surface for the adhesive to bond to.

Cosmetic braces are also on offer for those who need teeth straightening, but no bite correction.

Refresh your smile

Are you completely happy with your smile? If the answer is no, you’re not alone. At Ace Dental in Camden, many of our patients come to us looking for ways to enhance their smile. With modern dentistry, there is a range of options you can choose from with the help and guidance of our skilled dentists. One of the most popular options is teeth whitening in Camden.

Why choose teeth whitening in Camden?

If the first thing you notice about your smile when you look in the mirror is discoloured or stained teeth, then teeth whitening could be the solution for you.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenAs we age, our teeth naturally start to lose their whiteness. However our diets and lifestyle can also affect the colour of our teeth. If you smoke, take certain medications, or often enjoy coffee, tea, or red wine, you may find your teeth looking worse for wear as a result.

You don’t have to put up with these stains and discolouration. Teeth whitening in Camden offers an effective, non-invasive solution.

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening in Camden, and else where, is based on the use of hydrogen peroxide, which whitens the enamel of your teeth. When you come in to see us, we will first examine your teeth to see if teeth whitening is indeed the right solution for you. Then we will make custom-made mouth trays that snugly fit over your teeth.

You have 2 options for teeth whitening when you come to Ace Dental: in-clinic or at-home teeth whitening. Teeth whitening in-clinic takes about an hour and a half, using a concentrated whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide. The gel is activated with a special light and all you need to do is sit back and relax in our massage chair. You can choose to watch TV or listen to music to help pass the time.

Alternatively, you can have your teeth whitened from the comfort of your home, using a less concentrated whitening gel. You will need to wear your gel-filled trays for about 2 weeks before you see the results.

Teeth whitening is a temporary fix but you can make the results last longer by avoiding food and drinks that stain strongly, as well as reducing or quitting smoking.

Braces for adults are all the rage

When considering braces, you may associate them with kids. It´s true that many kids get braces to make sure their teeth are straight and aligned for later life. However, more and more adults are choosing to get braces.

Part of the reason for this is because new treatments make having braces an easier undertaking than in the past. You can now straighten your teeth without the visual impact of traditional ´train track´ braces.

Here at Ace Dental in Camden, we can provide a wide range of treatments for teeth straightening. If you´re looking for braces in Camden, you can expect to find a treatment to suit you, from fixed braces to removable appliances.

Braces in CamdenTypes of braces in Camden

One type of braces in Camden is fixed appliances. These types of braces are permanently fitted onto your teeth for the duration of your treatment. You will usually return for adjustments that gradually pull the teeth into alignment. Most of these appliances differ from the braces of old because they utilise more modern materials, making them less conspicuous and more comfortable than ever. By focusing on realigning the teeth alone, and not the jaw, treatment times are often shorter than before too.

Another type of treatment we offer are removable appliances. These types of treatment are, as the name suggests, removable. This means you can take them out to brush or floss your teeth and at mealtimes. Treatments like Invisalign are some of the least conspicuous and easiest to fit your lifestyle around.

Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of custom-moulded clear plastic trays that are each slightly different in shape, moving your teeth gently over time.

Benefits of straighter teeth

The visual aspects of straighter teeth can bring big bonuses to your emotional wellbeing, as you sport a confident smile. But straighter teeth can also be healthier as they are easier to clean, reducing the chances of plaque and tartar building up, which ultimately reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Gum disease in particular is linked to increased risks of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. So investing in straighter teeth truly is an investment in your overall wellbeing and health.

Know before you go: teeth whitening in Camden

Your smile is the first thing people notice about you, but unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with pearly whites. Staining and discolouration on your teeth can be the result of many factors, including caffeine, red wine, smoking and other highly-pigmented foods and beverages. Even with meticulous oral care, you are likely to suffer from yellow teeth at some point in your life as a result of the thinning of the tooth enamel that comes with age. In some cases, genetics and certain medications are to be blamed for tooth discolouration.

Whatever is the cause behind your yellow teeth, we are here to help you brighten your smile. At Ace Dental we offer power whitening and at-home teeth whitening in Camden with three popular teeth whitening brands – Zoom, Boutique and Enlighten. All three of them are entirely safe and have proven to be effective over the years. Our experienced dentists will examine your teeth, determine the type of staining you have and help you decide which teeth whitening treatment is ideal for you.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenPower whitening

Power whitening is a simple, quick and effective procedure for those who wish to whiten their teeth in one visit to the dentist. It is ideal for patients who want to have their teeth whitened for a special occasion or are simply short of time and patience. Our dentist will apply a protective coating to cover your lips, cheeks and gums before painting the whitening gel straight on your teeth. The whitening process is activated with a special light that is directed over your teeth for several minutes. This process is repeated a further two times. By the end of the treatments, your teeth will be several shades lighter.

At-home whitening

At-home teeth whitening in Camden works more slowly, but is as effective as power whitening. Your dentist will fit you with custom-made whitening trays, which hold the whitening gel on your teeth. You will be asked to wear the trays every night or for a few hours during the day. You will notice results after 2-4 weeks.

Rejuvenate your skin with facial aesthetics in Camden

As we grow older, our skin changes. Some of these changes are controllable, whereas others are out of our hands and are simply associated with the natural process of ageing. Generally, genetics play an important role in how quickly the ageing process occurs. As we age, the outer layer of the skin becomes thinner and the proteins that provide our skin with suppleness and elasticity diminish. Our bodies produce less collagen and the elastin in our skin loses its strength, leading to the creation of fine lines and wrinkles. The ageing process can also be triggered by environmental conditions such as sun exposure, as well as smoking, which constricts the blood vessels in the skin, resulting in less oxygen.

Facial Aesthetics in CamdenAt Ace Dental, we understand that skin ageing cannot be entirely prevented, however, these days there are easily available treatments for it. Fortunately, treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers can mask the signs of ageing and increase the volume of the skin. Whether or not you are noticing the obvious signs of ageing, a consultation with one of our cosmetic dentists will help you decide whether facial aesthetics in Camden can help keep you looking great.

What is Botox?

Botox uses a special protein to control and block overactive nerve impulses in the skin, restricting muscular movement in the face. In doing so, Botox helps to relax the muscles that we use on a daily basis to talk, smile and express ourselves. This way, wrinkles and fine lines become less visible, providing the skin with a healthy and more youthful appearance. Botox is not a permanent treatment and will need to be repeated every few months. Depending on each patient, the results can last between 1-6 months.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are becoming more and more popular as a way to help soften the changes associated with ageing. Essentially, they fill in and soften wrinkles and fine lines, reduce scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace lost volume. The procedure usually only takes 30 minutes and the results are immediate and last up to eight months.

Straighten your smile with discreet braces in Camden

Are you confident about your smile? If you are shy about showing your teeth in public because you didn’t wear braces as a child, then it’s not too late to get them straightened. Doing so is important not only for your appearance, but also for your health. Poorly aligned, crowded and gapped teeth can affect your oral health, since they are harder to clean properly, are more likely to develop cavities and uneven wear, as well as jaw problems in the long run.

At Ace Dental, we appreciate that metal braces are not for everyone. That’s why we offer a range of innovative and discreet braces in Camden that are specially designed for adults. It is now possible to correct misaligned teeth, close gaps and straighten your bite in a way that doesn’t involve unattractive looking and uncomfortable metal brackets and wires.

Braces in CamdenInvisalign

Invisalign works in a similar manner as traditional braces, slowly moving your teeth into their correct position by using a series of custom-made, clear aligners. To start with, our dentists will use 3D imaging technology and x-rays to determine the entire treatment plan and show you the current position of your teeth, as well as the progression throughout the treatment. Once we have determined how your teeth should be aligned, we will create a series of aligners to fit your teeth perfectly.

All you need to do is wear each aligner for approximately two weeks before changing to the next one in the series. Once you have gone through all your aligners, you will have achieved the smile that you always wanted. Treatment time with Invisalign varies for each patient, but generally, most people have their teeth straightened in between 9-18 months.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces are similar to traditional fixed braces except that the brackets are bonded to the inside of the teeth, therefore they are practically invisible. At Ace Dental, we use Damon lingual braces, which are ideal for most teeth straightening problems, with treatment times up taking up to about 24 months.
