Sparkle up

If you are feeling like your image needs a lift, and your wardrobe is already bulging, why not give a quick makeover to something that you have to carry around with you all day every day? Why not brighten up your smile?

When you have teeth whitening in Camden with us at Ace Dental, you’ll find you make far more use of your smile. In fact you may only give it a rest when you are sleeping! And when you smile more, you’ll find your whole mood lifts and life looks better. This is serotonin, the body’s feel good chemical, entering your system. Every time you smile, you release it.

Teeth whitening in Camden is very popular for special occasions such as weddings, but in truth, having whiter teeth can make every day feel more of a celebration as you smile more and get your serotonin going.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenAt Ace Dental, we offer 2 types of teeth whitening. Both use hydrogen peroxide as a gentle bleaching agent.

In clinic

This is the slightly more expensive option because it is the quickest and we do it for you. You come into the clinic and relax in the massage chair in our dedicated whitening room, while the gel we have applied to your teeth, activated by a special light, whitens them by several shades. This takes about an hour and during this time you can listen to music or watch television.

At-home

At-home teeth whitening takes about 2 weeks. This is because the gel we give you to use is less concentrated than the one we use in the clinic. We give you trays that hold the gel and you wear them overnight or for a few hours during the day. You can also buy top up trays as and when you need them.

Is it for me?

If your teeth have been stained by life: tobacco, red wine, coffee, tea, some medicines, or are just naturally more yellow, then teeth whitening in Camden can make a difference. There are some discolourations that whitening treatments can’t get rid of, but don’t worry, you can cover those with veneers if you wish.

Braces make for better brushing

Keeping our teeth in healthy condition relies very heavily on careful and thorough brushing and flossing, twice a day, or even after every meal. Brushing and flossing stop the build-up of plaque, a sticky substance on which bacteria live. These bacteria give off an acid that eats into the enamel, compromising its ability to keep out the organisms that cause tooth decay.

Most people find brushing their teeth a bit of a chore, but it becomes even more so when the teeth are not well aligned. Teeth that are crowded together, cross over each other, or lean in or out are that much harder to keep clean. They are more likely to succumb to decay. Extraction is a potential fate for them and this leads to another host of problems associated with tooth loss.

Braces in CamdenThese health issues are why so many people are choosing to have their teeth moved into a better position with braces in Camden at Ace Dental. Having treatment with braces in Camden not only improves the appearance of your teeth and the way they bite together, but also makes them teeth easier to clean.

Why choose braces?

At Ace Dental in Camden, braces are also used to improve an incorrect bite. Once the teeth bite together well, tooth damage is more easily avoided, as is strain on the jaw muscles, joint problems, and sometimes even headaches. Seeing children with braces in Camden has been pretty common for decades, but now adults are going for treatment too.

There are various kinds of braces these days, and at Ace Dental we will make a full examination of your teeth, taking x-rays and making plaster models of your teeth, before suggesting which would be the most appropriate.

Treatment takes from between a few months to two-and-a-half years or more. Most people can be treated in one to two years, depending on the severity of the issues. When the teeth are properly aligned, you will need to wear a retainer to hold them in place, while the surrounding gum and bone settles. Retainers can be removable or fixed, depending on the original problem.

Don’t forget to look after the face that frames your smile

If you care about having a really great smile, then you’ve probably already been to Ace Dental for cosmetic dentistry, but did you know that we also provide facial aesthetics in Camden?

Your dentist is the ideal person to go to for facial aesthetics treatments. Every dentist spends at least 5 years studying to become a general dentist. We therefore have a deep knowledge and understanding of how the muscles, tendons, skin, and nerves of the head, face, and neck work together. We also have years of experience in how to give site specific injections and administer the contents of the needle with great precision.

It makes sense that facial aesthetics in Camden should be available from the people who have so much experience to give in providing the accuracy and attention to detail required to give you a more youthful look without a hint of having had ‘work’ done.

Facial Aesthetics in CamdenAt Ace Dental, our facial aesthetics in Camden is two-pronged. We offer Botox and dermal fillers, each of which fulfils a different function in creating a smoother, younger-looking face.

Smoothing out wrinkles

Botox is the brand name of botulinum A toxin. It works by blocking the impulses in nerves that make muscles contract. When the muscle is forced to relax, wrinkles are smoothed out. It works well on frown lines, worry lines, crow’s feet, and smoker’s lines around the top lip. The treatment takes a few days to kick in fully, and will last for 3 or 4 months.

Plumping out folds

Dermal fillers work differently from Botox. The active ingredient in fillers is non-animal hyaluronic acid, which the body starts to produce less of as we age. The filler is injected into wrinkles, folds, and hollows and plumps them out. Fillers are great for filling out hollow cheeks, folds around the mouth, and lips. It is also used on the hands to bring back that plump soft look lost with age. The effect is instant and lasts from 6 months to a year.

Choose dental implants, choose freedom

When you lose a tooth, for whatever reason and at whatever age, you have to decide on the best way to replace it. Time was, your choice was between a bridge or dentures. These days more and more people are choosing to invest in dental implants in Camden to replace their teeth. Initially, dental implants appear to be more expensive than traditional bridges and dentures, but in the long-run, they can be better value. This is because dental implants can last your whole life, whereas dentures and bridges need to be replaced about every 7 years. Dental implants also do a better job, giving you back your freedom to chew, as well as providing something pearly white to smile with.

Dental Implants in CamdenWhat’s involved?

When you come to Ace Dental for dental implants in Camden, you will be starting a journey that could take several months to complete. It begins with an initial consultation. We will do a full examination to understand the state of your mouth and jawbone. Implants need to go into healthy mouths, so we will need to sort out any other oral issues, including realigning your teeth if gaps have caused them to wander around in your jaw. We may also need to extract any failing teeth and then give you time to heal from the extractions.

Also, if your teeth have been missing for quite a while, your jawbone may no longer be strong enough to support dental implants. However, all is not lost. You can have bone tissue grafted into your jaw. This will then need a few months to integrate and grow. If the problem is with your upper jaw, we can insert extra long implants through the jawbone and into the dense cheekbone above.

Dental implants in Camden take about an afternoon to insert, under local anaesthetic. It involves drilling new channels into your jawbone and then inserting the implants. This sounds much worse than it is, but if you are nervous, you can have sedation, either inhaled or intravenous.

You will need a few weeks to months for the implants to become stable in your jaw, and then you come back to have your new custom-made crowns fitted.

Replace your missing teeth with dental implants in Camden

If you miss one, several or all your teeth, but you are reluctant to replace them with bridges or dentures due to aesthetic and functional considerations, then dental implants may be the right option for you. Unlike conventional tooth replacement methods that merely sit on the gums, dental implants become an integral part of the jawbone and help prevent its deterioration. Essentially, dental implants, look, feel and function just like your natural teeth.

At Ace Dental in Camden, dental implants are our treatment of choice for patients with missing teeth. After a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, our dentists will help you determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants and guide you through the procedure. Generally, dental implants are a viable treatment for many patients, provided their teeth and jawbone are healthy. Patients with diabetes, heart disease, excessive loss of bone in the jaw, or unhealthy habits such as smoking can still have dental implants under specific circumstances.

Dental Implants in CamdenWhat are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots. Essentially, they fuse with the jawbone to provide a steady foundation for replacement teeth. Once the healing period has passed, dental implants are topped with individual crowns, or they can be used to support implant-supported bridges or dentures.

Missing teeth can lead to the gradual deterioration of the jawbone, a result of the lack of stimulation normally provoked by the actions of chewing and biting. This lack of stimulation causes the bone to deterioration in volume and quality over time and can even lead to tooth loss. Bone deterioration may become worse with removable dentures, which rub against the gums, leading to bone loss. By restoring teeth from their roots, dental implants provide the necessary stimulation to prevent further bone loss while improving chewing and biting power.

Benefits of dental implants

Besides looking and functioning just like natural teeth, dental implants preserve the rest of your teeth by avoiding the need to grind down other teeth to create support for them, as bridges require. Clinical data also suggest that they last much longer than conventional tooth replacement treatments and they can be cost-effective in the long term. More importantly, dental implants prevent bone loss and deterioration.

Find a new direction with braces

Wonky teeth can be a real nuisance. Not only do they look bad, they are difficult to clean and can make biting problematic. Dentists have been straightening the smiles of children and adults alike for a long time now using braces. In Camden, the team at Ace Dental offer a variety of ways to realign your teeth.

Avoiding damage and disease

The problems that badly-aligned teeth can give you are not just limited to anxiety about your smile. Bad breath, muscular strain on the jaw, gum disease, and the gradual erosion of tooth enamel are all complications that have been known to arise from crooked, crowded or gappy teeth. At our practice in Camden, braces come in a variety of styles that will help you improve your dental health and your smile.

Braces in CamdenIt doesn’t have to be fixed

The length of your treatment will depend on the nature of the problem. There are 2 main types of braces to consider:

The first is the fixed brace. It is made of small brackets fixed to the teeth. These brackets can be plastic, ceramic, or metal. They are connected together by a wire, which guides the teeth into straighter positions over the course of your treatment.

The second is removable braces. These come in the form of a series of custom-moulded, clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth. They are replaced every two weeks and need to be worn for at least 22 hours a day. You can however remove them when you eat, drink, or brush your teeth.

Getting it right

After a full consultation with one of our dentists, which may include x-rays and impressions, your treatment will be tailored to your exact requirements. It could take anywhere from a couple of months to a year or two to complete your treatment. You will then be advised to wear a retainer for a while afterwards, to help your teeth get comfortable in their new positions.

Contact Ace Dental today and our team will be happy to get you on the road to straighter teeth with our range of braces in Camden.

Are you disappointed by your reflection?

Maybe your face is starting to lose its natural smoothness. When you look in the mirror, you might see lines around your eyes or mouth that make you feel anxious about your appearance. At Ace Dental in Camden, facial aesthetics is the name we use to cover the range of treatments that are available to help restore a more youthful appearance to your face.

What has caused the imperfections in my skin?

Facial Aesthetic in CamdenAs you age, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, which keeps your skin looking strong and supple. As a result your skin can start to take on a dry and saggy appearance, especially around the lips and eyes. This can be made worse by things like smoking, staying out in the sun for too long, and the over-use of particular facial expressions. Genetic factors also play a part in the speed at which your skin takes on an aged appearance.

Solutions are available locally

At our practice in Camden, facial aesthetics is carried out by dental professionals who have experience improving facial appearances with non-invasive techniques. After a chat with a member of our friendly team, an appointment will be made for you to receive the most suitable remedy.

What are the options?

Botox is a popular option. In this treatment, a liquid called Botulinum toxin is carefully injected into strategic areas of your face. This relaxes some of the muscles that distort the appearance of your skin and cause wrinkles. If you have lines on your forehead, around your eyes, or around the mouth as a result of smoking, these areas will look smoother about a week after your treatment. Results will last for about 3 to 6 months and you can always come in for a top-up to maintain your look.

Further enhancements

Dermal fillers can be used to boost the lips and bring a youthful plumpness to the skin on your face, neck, or even hands. An injection of hyaluronic acid quickly and comfortably brings about these improvements, and can last between 6 and 12 months. Contact our team today for facial aesthetics in Camden and look forward to a fresher-faced look.

Restore your dental strength and stability

For many people in Camden, dental implants are a reliable way to restore missing teeth, in a way that will last longer than other treatments such as dentures or bridges. In fact, your dental implants, if properly maintained, will be with you for the rest of your life.

Integrated and durable

Ace Dental offer dental implants in Camden as a clinically proven and safe method to restore confidence in biting and chewing. As a bonus, you’ll get back the enjoyment in eating and drinking that you had with your natural teeth. There’ll be no need to only eat soft or mushy foods.

Dental Implants in CamdenLong-term fix

This advance in modern dentistry is carried out in 2 simple stages:

First, small metal screws are placed directly into the jaw in the gaps where your teeth used to be. These screws replace the roots of the teeth you lost and ensure that the jaw is encouraged to maintain its shape and structure.

Crowns and bridges are then securely attached to these screws, combining a natural look with a stable foundation.

Plenty of benefits

After your implants are placed, the jawbone is stimulated to grow around them, preventing bone loss that is so common after tooth loss. This helps ensure your jawline keeps its definition. The ‘sunken’ look you may have noticed in people who’ve chosen dentures or bridges is therefore avoided, leaving you with a healthier look as well as a stronger jaw.

Time is a factor

Whenever you lose a tooth, the ones that remain have to work harder when you eat. Gaps can be difficult to clean, which puts you at risk of dental health problems. These gaps can also affect the density of the jawbone, making the other teeth less stable while they are under increased strain. For a permanent and robust solution to these problems in Camden, dental implants are a good choice.

If you want to know more about getting your dental implants in Camden, whether you have lost only one tooth, a few or all of them, the Ace Dental team will be happy to make an appointment for you.

How does it work?

Teeth Whitening in CamdenDid you know that teeth can be whitened by several shades, and that many of those who have had their teeth whitened feel more confident. Not only that, with a brighter smile, you may find you experience more positive interactions with your peers. There are all sorts of reasons why people choose to whiten their teeth but whatever the reason, if you are considering teeth whitening in Camden, Ace Dental is here to help.

Teeth whitening can enhance your smile if you have stains caused by everyday lifestyle choices, such as drinking wine and coffee, or simply by the natural effects of aging. If you have always had marks on your teeth or the stains on your teeth occurred while your teeth were forming, teeth whitening may not be effective and you may need to consider other options. Whichever the case, Ace Dental will be able to guide you in the right direction.

What are your options?

If you think the way forward for you is teeth whitening in Camden, we can offer you a choice between our two equally effective teeth whitening packages.

You can either opt for teeth whitening in Camden at our clinic, which will take around an hour. With this procedure, a protective guard is placed over your lips and gums, before a whitening gel is applied to your teeth. There is an active, bleaching ingredient in the gel that works when it is exposed to a special light.

If you prefer, you can opt for at-home teeth whitening. This takes around two to three weeks of wearing custom-made mouth trays for a few hours in the day or overnight. The trays are filled with a less concentrated whitening gel, which we will provide you with. A bonus with using this method is that you then have all you need to top up the treatment when the effects start to wear off.
