A Single Day For A Brand New Smile!

A Single Day For A Brand New Smile!

Not all dental treatments take a long period of time to improve your smile.

One thing which may deter some patients from having treatment to improve the appearance of their teeth is the length of time some treatments take to work. The ‘inconvenience’ of having to wear braces for a year or more is likely to put a lot of people off (although some, such as Quick Straight Teeth actually work much quicker).

Even a straightforward procedure such as having a dental crown fitted, means that two visits are necessary to our Ipswich practice, as the patient will need to wait for the crowns to be produced at an external laboratory before they can be fitted.

Time poor patients

The inconvenience of having to see the dentist a number of times to complete a treatment can be off putting to those whose lives are already busy. Not all cosmetic dental treatments require this though, and, in today’s Foxhall Dental Practice blog, we take a look at a few treatments which can be completed in just one visit.

Teeth whitening

Whilst many dental practices offer home teeth whitening kits that are both safe and effective, these can take a couple of weeks to work. If you are looking for a much quicker way to whiten your teeth, our Ipswich cosmetic dentists can help. Our one hour teeth whitening procedure is both safe and fast acting, and, following it, you will see your teeth whitened by up to eight shades.

Same day implants

Individual dental implants take around three months to fully bond with the bone, before the abutment and crown can be attached. Where a full arch of teeth are missing though, same day dental implants can be used. Generally, four or six implants are placed into the jawbone and a fixed bridge attached. It is the rear implants, which are specially designed and are placed into the bone at a specific angle, which makes this possible. If you are a suitable candidate for the treatment, you can leave our Ipswich practice within a few hours of commencing this procedure, with a great new smile!

Facial aesthetics

Although not a dental procedure, our facial aesthetics team at the Foxhall Dental Practice in Ipswich can provide Botox and/or dermal fillers in a single visit to help you to reduce the lines and wrinkles on your face. Although it may take a few days before the results start to show, the simplicity and speed of this treatment means that it is becoming increasingly popular.

If you would like to improve your smile or get rid of your wrinkles without the inconvenience of lengthy treatment and live in Ipswich or nearby Felixstowe, why not contact the Foxhall Dental Practice today on 01473 258396.
