Oral and General Health Assessment
At Wyndham House Dental Practice our emphasis is very much on preventative dentistry. All our dentists will carry out a thorough “whole mouth” examination from which they are able to gain an indication of your general health as well as the health of your teeth and gums.
Again with the emphasis on prevention our dental hygienist is available for routine scale & polish appointments as well as placing medicated treatments and more in-depth perio courses to combat gum disease. She is also on hand to provide oral hygiene instruction and demonstration. Special children’s sessions are also available by prior arrangement where for a small fee per child, small groups of children can attend for a fun but informative session which includes a dental goody bag.
The effects of tooth loss are great and it can lead to a lack of confidence which affects everyday life. Dental Implants are the next best thing to natural teeth and can be used to replace a single lost tooth or a whole mouth of missing teeth. They last longer and provide greater function and support than either bridges or dentures. Find out more about our Dental Implants Service.
Better than the toothpaste! Professional tooth whitening works well and predictably. A great way to transform your smile, simply and quickly. With our custom-made home whitening kit it is possible to whiten your teeth by up to 8 shades whiter. With follow-up whitening gel available to purchase direct from the surgery (subject to regular examinations) you can top-up and maintain your new whiter smile. Find out more about Tooth Whitening.
Do you know someone who has a single darkened tooth? Often, when a tooth has had a root canal filling it can go much darker than the other teeth, almost black in some cases. Individual teeth can also be whitened to restore their normal colour.
Cosmetic & Complex Dentistry
We offer all aspects of cosmetic dentistry, ranging from high quality crown and bridgework to advanced treatments, such as custom shaded and finished crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers and inlays, tooth-coloured fillings and teeth whitening.
Crowns and Veneers
Crowns and veneers can be used to improve the appearance of teeth whether they are discoloured , have poor shape or position. You can be initially be fitted with prototype restorations of the proposed final result. As a result we can make any minor adjustments you may care for on the prototypes before making the final restorations. In this way we can be totally sure you will get the ideal result you are looking for.
Nobody looks forward to having a tooth removed. But often, the thought of having a tooth removed is worse than the experience itself. Our expertise in this area means we can go to great lengths to ensure that the tooth is removed carefully and effectively in the most pleasant manner possible. This ensures that post-operative discomfort is minimised. We can also provide sedation for those people who are really anxious.
Root fillings are the ‘last-ditch-stand’ to save a tooth. Imagine a tooth is like an ice-cream cone, with the part of the tooth visible above the gum being the ice-cream and the tooth root being just like the ice-cream cone – tapered and hollow. The nerve and blood vessels that keep the tooth alive are inside the hollow section of the ice-cream cone (the root canal). Sometimes the root canal becomes infected and causes tooth-ache or an abscess. The purpose of a root canal filling is to clean out the root canal and fill it preventing any further infection. Normally, the root-filled tooth is weakened by this procedure and crown would be recommended to strengthen the remaining tooth. Although a root-filled tooth is dead (no nerve supply) it should function normally for many more years.
Bridges and Dentures
We are able to offer our clients a wide range of options to fill any gaps in dentition, from just one tooth to a number of teeth. Depending on personal needs your dentist will be able to offer different solutions / materials to suit your individual requirements including permanent options such as the placement of implants.
Ideal for longer treatments or for patients who feel anxious, we are able to offer in-surgery sedation for most treatments. Please ask your dentist for further details.
We can offer a speedy service for tailor-made gum-shields in almost any colour or combination of colours. As an ex Welsh International and Llantwit Major rugby player, Simon Hill is all too aware of how important gum-shields are, not just for rugby but for a variety of sports, and particularly for children. This being the case Wyndham House offers discounted rates on gum-shields for junior patients and members of Llantwit Major Rugby Club. Ask your dentist or at reception for further details.
We are also able to provide devices to help alleviate tooth-grinding / snoring etc. Just ask your dentist for more details.
