Having a confident smile can change everything. And Invisalign makes the decision easy, because you can get a great and healthy smile without most people even noticing you’re going through treatment. So start on the right track today, and find out how you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted with Invisalign.

Discoloured Crowns

Q:  Why have I got a black line around the edge of my crown

A: In the past porcelain crowns had a metal structure to provide them with their strength, the edge of which tends to show after time due to the gum line receeding.

Modern all ceramic metal free crowns used by Cheam dentists are just as strong and eliminate the possibility of the black line showing around the edge of the gum and are therefore much more esthetically pleasing They also bond to the tooth structure so that the chances of coming unstuck are minimised

Hygienist Treatments

Q: How often should i see the Hygenist?

A: To keep your teeth and gums healthy we suggest you see the hygenist at regular recommended interval of 3, 6 or 12 months.
3 months is recommended for those who have, or who are suffering from periodontis (distructive gum disease), prone to heavy staining,and  are prone to rapid buildups of tartar arround teeth and under gums.

6 months is recommended for those who are prone to advanced gum disease, but have less staining and tartar.

12 months is recommended for those who have no significant gum disease and minimal stain and tartar buildup.
