Markham Associates Dental Surgeons – Dentist in Reading

Wedding and party seasons are both fast approaching and this is the time when we want to look our best. If you have discoloured or yellowing teeth, it can really knock your confidence and make you reluctant to give your best, full smile.

Teeth whitening may be something you’ve never considered before, believing it is a treatment for celebrities. Well, this is no longer the case and more and more people are seeing their dentist for whitening treatments at much more affordable prices.

The teeth whitening at Markham Associates Dental Surgeons in Reading is both safe and effective. They will take impressions of your teeth and then produce specifically tailored whitening trays to fit perfectly in your mouth, providing you with comfortable and secure mouth trays.

The mouth trays will be used with a special whitening gel and you will take these home, with full instructions on how to use them, for a few weeks. After this, you will come back to visit the dentist and they can assess the lightening effect.

Some of the major benefits of having professional teeth whitening, rather than shop bought products, is that the trays are custom built for the patient, so fit perfectly. The professional lightening gel is more effective than the shop bought kits. Your treatment is overseen by a professional, therefore sensitivity and gum irritation can be avoided.

Emergency Dentist

A dental emergency can leave patients in a lot of pain. This could be caused by a broken or lost tooth, a lost or broken filling, crown, denture or bridge, an infection or just plain old tooth decay, causing pain. Whatever the emergency, Markham Associates offer same day emergency appointments five days a week between 8.30am to 5.30pm and until 7pm on Tuesday and Thursdays.


This service is open to registered and non-registered patients. If you need an emergency dentist call on 0118 957 4308 or 0118 950 2275.

Adam Toft – Smile with Confidence

Adam Toft has a specific interest in smile makeovers and enhancing and transforming people’s smiles. He knows how important a smile can be to a person’s confidence and self- esteem and has been working with people to transform their smiles for over 20 years.

He has a particular passion for adult orthodontics and is a highly-trained provider of short term teeth straightening treatments such as C-Fast, Fastbraces, Tru-Smile and Invisalign. He provides this alongside other cosmetic dentistry options, such as teeth whitening, dental veneers and dental implants. Below we explore some of these treatments further.

Orthodontics (C-Fast, Smile Tru, Invisalign)

These teeth straightening options are particularly good for adults seeking straighter teeth who want a more subtle solution than traditional braces. Smile Tru and Invisalign are made from transparent, clear materials and gently move the teeth into the desired position, without the brackets and wires. C-Fast uses discreet, clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires to straighten the front six teeth. The treatment time is usually around 6 months, which can also keep costs down.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great treatment if you have missing teeth or large gaps between your teeth. They can even improve a person’s face shape, as when there are missing teeth, the skin can sometimes sag in that area. The dental implants are basically acting as a tooth root. Small titanium cylindrical posts are inserted into the jawbone to create a firm foundation for new teeth to be fixed to.  After a few months, they fuse neatly with the bone and a new crown, bridges or dentures can be fixed.

The dental implants act just as your natural teeth do and can significantly improve your ability to eat and can even help with speech, which can often alter when teeth are missing.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are used to improve the appearance of the front teeth. You may want to use dental veneers if you have gaps in your teeth, crooked teeth or discolouration of the teeth. They are very thin sheets of tooth-coloured material, often made from porcelain. These are bonded to the front of the teeth. On average veneers last around 10 years and can drastically alter a person’s teeth for the better.

Teeth Whitening

Dr Toft has completed a great deal of training in teeth whitening and lectures and demonstrates tooth whitening for dental professionals throughout the UK. If you would like a speedy teeth whitening system, he uses Enlighten Whitening in his dental practice. This is an in surgery treatment that can work in as little as an hour. He also offers home whitening, custom-made trays called Nite White, which can take a few days to 20 days to see results.

Adam Toft has a host of experience in all the aforementioned treatments and is also Principal Dentist at Cavendish Dental Care.

Bayswater Dental Clinic – well established dentist in the West of London

The clinic was opened in the early 1960s in the West of London and has been providing excellent general and cosmetic dentistry ever since. Bayswater Dental Clinic, in Bayswater, provides dental care to patients in this area, as well as areas such as Paddington, Marble Arch, Kensington and Notting Hill Gate.

The dental practice provides a vast range of dental treatments at affordable prices. These vary from routine check-ups, hygienist visits, implants, and crowns & bridges to advanced cosmetic dentistry, such as dental veneers, teeth whitening and teeth straightening. Below we focus on the teeth straightening system Invisalign and dental veneers to explore these options further.


Invisalign are discreet, virtually invisible braces for the teeth to aid teeth straightening. A series of custom-made aligners are worn by the patient and changed every 1 – 2 weeks, which gradually moves the teeth into the correct position. The aligners should be worn for approximately 22 hours per day but can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing and for special occasions if desired.

Bayswater Dental Clinic is offering a free consultation, free retainers for after the treatment is completed, free home whitening to provide that beautiful finishing touch and offer various dental payment plans to suit your budget.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can solve many teeth issues, and can drastically improve the appearance of a person’s smile. They can also be used to protect the surface of the teeth, to lighten the teeth, to align and straighten teeth, to close any gaps between teeth and to repair any chipped or broken teeth. A very thin layer of a resin-based material is placed over the tooth or teeth and fixed with special dental cement.

Facial Aesthetics

In addition to its cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry options, Bayswater Dental Clinic also offers facial aesthetic treatments, such as anti-line and wrinkle treatments and Cerezen and Somnowell.

Line and wrinkle treatment – this is a simple, non-surgical treatment, which can smooth out moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the 10 minute treatment is suitable for people aged 18 to 65 years and results can last up to 4 months.

Cerezen – is a unique and pioneering device that treats the symptoms of TMD and associated pain, such as jaw and facial pain and tension headaches.

Somnowell – is a lifetime solution for snoring and sleep apnoea and can assist with bruxism, TMJ and retention. It claims a 93-96% success rate in patients and was invented by a consultant and specialist orthodontist with over 30 years’ experience.

If you would like further information on any of the above treatments, please contact the clinic and book a consultation on 020 3897 8778 or you can book online here.

The aims of the practice are to offer safe and ethical dentistry to achieve healthy long-term oral health for its patients. Staff and dentist are actively encouraged to keep up with the latest advances and technologies in dentistry through regular training and educational opportunities.

Alongside the standard dental check-ups and oral hygiene appointments, the practice also offers dental implants, veneers, bridges, crowns, adult orthodontics, teeth whitening and smile makeovers. Below we focus on adult orthodontics, dental implants and the smile makeovers.

Adult Orthodontics

More and more adults seem to be considering straightening their teeth these days and perhaps because there are a plethora of different teeth straightening options now available on the market.  We offer the Inman Aligner, which is perfect for correcting crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. This can be achieved in a matter of weeks, with most cases being complete within 6 to 16 weeks.

The Six Month Smiles system is ever popular as it is based on the idea behind traditional braces but uses less noticeable clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, with average treatment time being 6 months.

Invisalign are virtually invisible, clear aligners, which can be removed for eating and cleaning. They should be worn for a minimum of 22 hours per day. The aligners are tailor made to the person’s teeth and as the aligners are changed every one to two weeks they move the patient’s teeth into the desired position.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth or a single tooth. One of the main benefits is once fitted they are as strong as your natural teeth. This makes eating and drinking much easier and can improve a person’s speech and even their self-confidence. Implant treatment usually has two stages, one where the implant, a small titanium screw, is implanted into the jaw and then one a few months later to fit the crown or bridge.

Feel free to contact the practice if you would like further information on any of the above dental treatments or you can find out more about the practice on Facebook.

Boldmere Dental Practice – friendly, family-run dentist in Sutton Coldfield

Boldmere Dental Practice is a friendly, family-run dental practice based in the heart of Sutton Coldfield. The team are highly trained and professional but also friendly, ensuring patients at the practice are relaxed and comfortable. The ethos of Boldmere Dental Practice is to support patients on their life time journey of healthy gums and teeth, leading to great dental health and happiness.

The husband and wife team have owned Boldmere Dental Practice since 2013 and its location, on Jockey Road, has had a dental practice there since the 1950’s. The practice offers general dentistry, children’s dentistry, cosmetic dentistry as well as facial aesthetics. The practice is fortunate enough to have a dedicated orthodontic centre and implant centre offering teeth-straightening options and replacement teeth, implants, bridges and dentures.

Do you have missing teeth or gaps?

If the answer is yes, it can not only cause problems when eating and chewing food but it can also have an effect on a person’s confidence. According to one newspaper, approximately 27 million British adults have at least one missing tooth, so you’re really not alone and the best part is that there are now more options than ever to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a great option if you want a long-term solution to missing teeth. Boldmere Dental Practice can offer single front or single back tooth implants or a bridge for several missing teeth or a full arch bridge for missing teeth in an entire jaw. So, let’s explore what dental implants are?

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are used to support one or more false teeth. A small screw made from titanium is placed into the jawbone. This acts as a tooth’s root would. As the titanium post fuses and heals with your jawbone, it creates a very strong foundation for the replacement tooth, crown or denture to be placed.

The dental implants have the advantage of acting as your own teeth would, meaning you can eat and drink your favourite foods. You are also able to clean them as you would your natural teeth. They are long-lasting and if they are looked after properly, they can last for over 15 years.

Smile Makeovers

They also offer smile makeovers. These can be a great way to transform your teeth and your smile into the smile you have always dreamed of.

The second consultation is where you will be given a full plan of the treatment you will need and you will have the opportunity to discuss this. At this appointment, an estimate for the cost of the treatment will also be given. Once the treatment plan is approved by the patient, your dentist can begin treatment.

Examples of treatments people have after their smile makeovers are the replacement of discoloured, old crowns, teeth straightening for overcrowded or crooked teeth, teeth whitening to brighten up a smile and dental implants to replace missing teeth.

Six Month Smiles

If you are particularly uncomfortable with the spacing in your teeth or you feel they are too crooked or overcrowded, Six Month Smiles could be the best option for you. The Six Month Smiles braces and wires are tooth-coloured so are barely noticeable. They move your teeth gently but effectively into place, so there is limited discomfort. The process usually takes around six months but treatment time can be anything from 4-9 months.
