Cosmetic Dentistry in Harley Street

Dr Anthony Zybutz and his dental team in central London

Harley Street, in the heart of London, has long been home to the medical profession including cosmetic dentists, for many years. Traditionally certain parts of London have been associated with popular nearby trades; for example Carnaby Street and fashion, Spitalfields and markets and Fleet Street of course was previously world famous for being the heart of the UK’s media.

Harley Street though became popular halfway through the 19th century, at which time it had around twenty doctors in the area. This grew rapidly though and by the end of the century, there were over two hundred. Currently, it is thought that there are around 3000 people in Harley Street employed in the medical professions. Amongst these is a relatively new breed of dentists, commonly referred to as cosmetic dentists, although this title underestimates the extent of the procedures that can be had at these dental practices.

Whilst some of the procedures that can be had at a Harley Street dental practice such as 77 Harley Street could be thought of as entirely cosmetic, for example a tooth whitening procedure; many other procedures result in better teeth all round including their functionality and strength. Dental implants are perhaps one of the best examples of this as whilst they do indeed improve the appearance of the teeth, especially if they replace a missing tooth, they also provide an excellent strong replacement tooth that can be used in exactly the same manner as a regular tooth.

Procedures such as these are not available on the NHS as they are both costly and extensive training is needed before a dentist can perform this procedure. 77 Harley Street dentist Dr Anthony Zybutz B.D.S is fully qualified to perform many dental procedures and takes great pride in keeping up to date with the latest developments in cosmetic dentistry and taking any relevant training that may be needed to provide the best service for his clients.

Dental implants can be used as a means to replace a full arch of teeth without the need to replace each tooth individually, an expensive option indeed. This procedure, called ‘teeth in a day’ is available at 77 Harley Street and involves the use of just 4 dental implants to anchor a fixed bridge in place. By using specially designed implants at the rear of the mouth and placing them at a 45 degree angle instead of the usual 90 degrees, it gives extra strength to hold the bridge in place. This also makes it especially suitable for those who would otherwise have needed a bone graft due to insufficient bone in the jaw into which to place an implant.

Dental implants of course, are just one of many cosmetic dental procedures that can be had at the 77 Harley Street practice. Others include dental veneers, gum contouring and tooth coloured fillings.
