Modern cosmetic fillings are nearly identical to the natural tooth
A lot of us take great care of our teeth, aware that our smile is one of our most important assets. We thoroughly and regularly clean our teeth and floss in between to ensure that decay does not become a problem. Along with the possible use of orthodontics to straighten our teeth, these actions should leave our teeth looking in great shape.
Often though, we forget about one obvious factor which can certainly spoil the appearance of our teeth and that is the fillings that we may have had for some time. Perhaps we have simply grown accustomed to the dark patches in our mouth where our teeth have been filled with amalgam but there is little doubt that having spent time and effort getting our teeth looking great, it does put a dampener on a smile when we reveal our fillings.
Weighing up the benefits of modern implants

By having a consultation with you we can establish which type of dentistry you require. At the Practice, we offer routine hygiene treatments and complex dentistry solutions which include: cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry or preventative dentistry.
Tooth replacement in Harley Street – Your Options Using Implants
Losing a tooth or needing a number of teeth to be extracted can have a major effect on both our appearance and our ability to eat a wide range of foods comfortably and efficiently. In the past, the only real options available were to either accept the missing teeth or to have dentures to replace them.
In recent years though, at our central London dental practice in Harley Street, a more recent innovation has become increasingly popular and is likely to overtake the use of dentures in years to come.
How we put our dental patients at ease
What is the first thought that runs through your mind when someone mentions visiting the dentist? If you fall into the same category as at least half of the population of the UK, there is a good chance that it is some level of fear. In fact, there seems to be a bigger fear of dentistry than having an operation in hospital which does, on the surface at least, seem somewhat strange.
Although the root of this fear isn’t yet fully understood, some feel that it is because the procedure takes place so close to the area where the brain, eyes, nose and mouth are; i.e. all of the major senses. This proximity appears to be a factor at least in people’s dental phobia.
Caring dentistry – young or old!
Whilst much advertising of dental care and dental products focuses on adults, a dental practice caters for a wide age range of patients from the very young to the very old. Through the ages dental care is very important to keep your teeth in great shape throughout your life. The type of treatments that are provided will inevitably depend on the age of the patient to a great extent and, because of this, it is important to find a good quality dental practice which is able to cater for this. Here at 77 Harley Street Dental Practice, we pride ourselves on being one of the top children’s dentists in Central London and pride ourselves not only on our treatments but on the way that we communicate with our patients and especially the younger ones.
Sound dental treatment choices in the heart of London
No matter which way you look at it, you’ll only ever be gifted with a single set of permanent teeth courtesy of Mother Nature herself. As such, when it comes to looking after such precious assets for the long-term it is a case of combining personal input with that of a trained dental professional. And needless to say, the choice made in terms of the dental professional chosen can have an enormous impact on oral health for the rest of a person’s life.
So with the above in mind, here are three very good reasons why you might consider 77 Harley Street your number-one choice:
Children’s dentistry in Harley Street, London
Once a child’s ‘milk’ teeth have fallen out, they will only get one more set which will have to see them through the rest of their lives. Naturally children can’t be expected to understand this or to fully understand, at an early age, how to care for their teeth properly; this responsibility lies with the parents.
Whilst our own parents most probably did all that they could to keep our teeth strong and healthy, the fact is that there simply wasn’t the knowledge or technology then to help them. Nowadays though, armed with information and top quality children’s dentists in London like our very own in Harley Street, a child now has a good chance of having strong and healthy teeth for a very long time indeed.
The condition of our teeth has a marked impact on our overall diet and health
As we get older, it is only natural that, through wear and tear, our teeth are not as strong as they once were. Long gone are the days when we could confidently bite down hard onto crunchy or chewy foods; in our later years this can be quite difficult if we have little confidence in our teeth or the security of our dentures.
Whilst being unable to chew toffee of crunch boiled sweets may not be a great overall loss; having poor quality teeth does often mean that people tend to select softer foods to eat and refrain from eating those which may prove harder to chew. This can have two effects, the lesser one being that we are more limited when it comes to choosing from a menu when eating out, but more importantly, it may mean that we are not getting the nutrients we need for a healthy long life if we restrict what we eat.
Correcting those gummy smiles
We often hear about the importance of a great smile and how it helps to improve confidence and can help us to get on in our lives both socially and financially. Because of this, a lot of emphasis is put upon making a patient’s teeth look great whether through a simple whitening procedure or repairing or even replacing by one of the advanced methods such as a dental implant.
Dental excellence in Central London
It might be true to say that’s you’re only ever graced with one set of teeth in your life (two if you count those you lost as a child!) but his doesn’t mean that you’re in any way stuck with the hand you’ve been dealt. Far from it in fact as in this day and age there really isn’t a single dental problem, imperfection or general annoyance that cannot be corrected with ease by the best in the business.
As such, it’s simply a matter of being sure to choose the best in the business and the rest takes care of itself – say hello to the Harley Street Dentist.
